One Monthly Goal: April's Goal Completed

I'm actually ready to link up with Red Letter Quilts on the first day of the One Monthly Goal link up for April.  Of course April's goal was pretty easy.  The plan was to add a narrow border to the Midnight Mystery quilt.  

Check:  One narrow border.

After adding the border, it was time to find fabric for the back.  While straightening up the fabric closet I came across some yardage that's been in the stash for a while.  It's not a great match to the front but it works, at least it has a black background.    

Check:  Pieced back

Then came pressing and removing all the loose threads.  Then the top and backing were folded up to package for shipping.

Check:  Prepped and packaged.  

Last Friday, the box made it's way to the Post Office and is now on it's way to Trudy.

Check:  Shipped

I'm really enjoying these One Monthly Goals.  It helps me focus on moving one project forward.  Getting projects out the door for quilting is one of my slower steps.  I'm not overly fond of the prepping for shipping process of pressing and de-treading that has to be done before I turn loose of them. By making it this month's goal, I didn't put it off for weeks which is my typical habit.  Getting this project to the quilter now makes it more likely I'll have another finish in May.
