So far I'm three for three. I'm not sure what May is going to look like. There may be a couple of weekend trips in there. Since weekends are my prime sewing time, I don't want to be too ambitious. Looking at what's on my quilting plan, I really need to start stitching on next year's graduation quilts. I've got all the fabric for the planned Zombies in Paris quilt, but it's not all washed and pressed. Plus I'm still dithering about the pattern. This month's goal will be to decide on the pattern and start making the blocks. I should be able to handle just getting started even if I'm out of the sewing room a lot this month.
This was the original plan.

But I'm not loving that plain center block. It needs something. After playing around in EQ, this is what the project has morphed into.
Drama Teen likes this layout. I'm still not sure about all the fabrics and the block placement, but I think we are using this pattern as the base for the final quilt. DT has some very unique and one of a kind friends. She assures me that this pattern is absolutely perfect for the intended recipient. Though we may have to change the name of the quilt to Zombie Love.
