April One Monthly Goal

March went fast, I guess because there was a lot going on.  I'm hoping April will be a bit slower and more stitching friendly. Though I'm probably being optimistic.  Drama Teen has a college visit she wants to make this month (Yes, it's that time already!).  I'll spend a good part of this weekend working on our taxes.  But I'll need a least some stitching time to balance out the stress of dealing with all that financial stuff.  

Since it's the first of April, it's time to link up with Red Letter Quilts for the declaration of my April One Monthly Goal.  

My 2016 Quilt Plan is to finish seven quilts this year.  So that's what I'm working towards.  Midnight Mystery from the 2015 Meadow Mist mystery quilt along is closest to being done.

My April goal is to get this quilt sent out for quilting.  I've decided to add a narrow border. That's actually already cut out: the pieces just need to be stitched together and added to the quilt.  I found a fabric for the backing last weekend while doing some rearranging of the stash closet.  The backing fabric pressed and ready for cutting once the border is on.  So adding borders, piecing the backing, getting it pressed, de-threaded and in the mail to Trudy is the plan.  That should be doable.

It's a beautiful quilt! I love your plan of doing the thing that is closest to finished. That's how to get those UFOs off the shelf! I look forward to seeing this one back from Trudy.
