Is it really April?

Holy moly! Where did the time go? There haven't been any posts in ages because I hadn't really done any sewing. I finally got back into the sewing room and got some things done. I finally got my Celtic Solstice top all together! I made the king size which I believe is 114" x 114". All made out of scraps, yet didn't seem to make a dent in the scrap pile!! Kathy Nyman, one of my Cobbled Court Quilt sisters, runs a ufo challenge on Marie Bostwick's Cobbled Court face book page. I pulled a block swap top from years ago out and started quilting that, but it's not completed yet. I want to do some more intensive quilting this year, and since I am keeping this one for myself, I figured it was a good one to experiment on. Here it is so far: I'm hoping to have it completed by the end of the week so I can cross it off my list!! I did finish another ufo. This one was a Mysteries for Relay pattern designed by Marge Gordon. Love this one!! Completed it and gave it to my son, Joe, for his 21 birthday this past Tuesday. I also made over 2400 half square triangles for my next quilt. Can't wait to get that started!!! As usual, now that I have finished a ufo, it has really motivated me to finish up some more. Hopefully, I won't lose any momentum!
