April One Monthly Goal

I'm late!  But I want to post quickly, so it counts, right?? lol  
I am almost done with my Island Batik Borders challenge.  I need to add more backing since I loaded it wrong on the Handiquilter Amara long arm.  I haven't done many small quilts, and hope I don't do that again, but need to add more backing, and plan to finish that last bit of quilting on my regular machine.  
Here's a photo before quilting.

I'll add more about this when it's done and gets its own blog post, but the center is supposed to be Stained Glass look, that I designed a few years ago, using Island Batik basics.  I added the border, wanting it to look like lattice.  

I did finish the Island Batik March quilt, which used the Graphic Gems collection, and the Accuquilt GO! BOB Storm at Sea die, provided by Island Batik, and Accuquilt.  More on that, later, too.  I want to get some "fancy" photos.  

I did finish the 2 quilts for Island Batik's Fall 2020 market, but you can't see them, and shipped them off, and made over 30 masks so far. And this purse, which was a custom request by my son, to give to a friend of his who loves the Giants.  The pattern is from Pink Sand Beach designs. 

I also assembled all of the Sewing Sewcial Shop Hop blocks I've received so far.  I'm waiting on one more to arrive.  

Whew, just in time!  I'll do a more detailed post on the 2 Island Batik quilts soon!  

Thanks for visiting.
