one monthly goal finish

I have been busy trying to rearrange my sewing room. The mess has gotten to me and I want to streamline my sewing furniture. This meant my first visit to ikea in Indianapolis and rethinking what I really want. But, we have slowed down a bit as we have aged, and it has resulted in aches and pains. We have to take time to recover.

At the beginning of April I set a few goals for the one monthly goal challenge here.
I wanted to finish the quiltville mystery quilt Allietare. But, I haven't found any of the fabrics I used in the quilt. SO I have to postpone this finish a bit longer.

And I wanted to assemble the top for my Smith mountain morning quilt. This I was able to do.

I made my April swap blocks for our circa 1880 swap.

And, I am current on all the rainbow scrap challenge projects. April was an aqua month.
