The end of April means we are one third of the way through 2021. That's a bit sobering as there's only been one finish coming out of my sewing room so far this year. I've been focusing on just a few projects at a time in hopes of moving more to the finished column, but it's been slow going. I've been playing along with Quilting Gail's 2021 PHD program to help with the motivation.
My PHD report for the end of April doesn't show much in the way of progress for the last month.
The only change is an addition to the in progress list highlighted in blue. There haven't been any new starts this year so far, so at least my PHD list isn't getting any longer. No new finishes this month, but I can celebrate the progress that's been made this month.
Grassy Creek is back from the quilter.
This should be a finish by the end of May as all it needs is the label and binding.
The Morewood Mystery is assembled.
The first border has been added, along with two strips for border number two. There's two more borders to add. The goal is to have Morewood to be a finished quilt top by the end of May.
Unity, the current leader and enders project, is moving along very slowly.
Just three new border blocks have been finished. I'm still undecided if Unity should move up in priority once Morewood is finished or if it should remain the leaders and enders project.
Cabins and Fans has been added to the "in progress list".
These blocks are my 2017 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project. After a bit of quilt math to get the sashing strips and the setting triangles right, these blocks are going together pretty quickly. It's been nice to have a new project in the mix.
April wasn't one of my better months for stitching time. May isn't looking good either on that front. But as long as I can see progress, it's all good.
