April Finishes - Down to the wire

Is April really over? Where did it go? Once again, I made some significant progress, but I didn't complete my list. But there's always May!

I did complete my Half-Pint finally. I wasn't part of the quilt-along, but loved seeing everyone else's results, so now I have my own.

I also completed the March and April rows of Claudia's Quilte Shoppe BOM

And I'm excited to say that my Crazy quilt will be completed before I go to bed tonight, so I'm counting it as a finish. It's in the machine now, and the lighting in here is too bad to get a decent picture. I'll try to take it outside tomorrow so you can see it in all its glory!!!! This is the first quilt that I started, and I quickly learned that a crazy quilt is not a good starting point. So I took a couple of classes and made some simpler quilts while Crazy sat in the corner. It's not perfect, but it's my pride and joy! Can't wait to show you tomorrow.
