OMG - April

So far for the OMG goals, I've managed a complete finish for each month (even if I didn't blog March's finish - ooops.) and am hoping for the finishing streak to continue.

For April, I'd like to finish this quilt:

It has been a UFO for over a decade and has been basted ready for quilting for a year or two now...  It's time to get this one done!

Now to settle on a quilting design.  I have sketched out several ideas over these last few days trying to settle on a design, but keep changing my mind.

I tend to do fairly dense quilting but would like to keep the quilting on this one light.  It results in a softer quilt which would be nice if this one becomes a baby quilt.  Plus, the blue fabric is pretty cool, it has a subtle pattern and I don't want the quilting to make it impossible to see.

Here's a closeup of the fabric.  Can you see the dancers?

If you want to see what other people are planning to accomplish this month; check out Red Letter Quilts OMG April link-up.


  1. This is going to be a very pretty quilt--I love classic blue and white!

  2. I can see the dancers, just barely. That's a great fabric, and deceptive at first glance. I can't believe the top is that old! It is something anyone would make today still. I will want to see the quilting design you choose! ~dezertskyquilts

  3. Hope you've been able to make some progress on your OMG this month.

  4. Good on you with your goals, Catherine...and have fun with this one. Hopefully once I am back home again and life has returned to normal I'll be able to take this challenge up again!
