I hope the weather is beautiful wherever you are. It sure is lovely here. It's going to be a hot, dry summer though, with so very little rainfall this Spring.
I've completed my April goal for ALOYF. It was to finish piecing the top of this mystery quilt. And I did! Just in the nick of time ;)
I just love, love, love these colors! I love the black so much, I put it in the outer border too, instead of the colors that the pattern said too :D
The rose and pink go so well with the black and blues.
This is a Jessica Smith pattern, you can find it here.
Linking up Shanna and Melissa, thanks Ladies.

I finally got a picture of my Torque quilt. This was a mystery pattern last Sept. I finally finished the top last week. It's a Jessica J.E. Smith pattern, of course :) You can find the pattern at Quiltwoman.
It's a log cabin style quilt, so if you like log cabin blocks, this one is for you.
Another great pattern Jess, thank you!
I'm linking up with finishes Friday's over at Crazy mom Quilts this week.

Well here it is the beginning of April, and we are FINALLY going to see some snow this weekend. LOL, I know many of you in the states have seen enough of it, but in my little corner, we haven't had any since last Nov, and that was just a sprinkling. We really need the moisture, so it will be nice :)
But in the sewing room, I'm working with these bright, beautiful Summery fabrics.
The rows just need to be sewn together, and the top will be done. It's one of Jess's mystery, you can find the pattern here, you'll have to ask Jess for her Torque pattern, as I dont' see it listed. Or you can buy it here.
Then I get to finish putting this one together. This top is going to be my April ALYOF goal over at Shanna's and Melissa's. To get this top pieced.
It's also one of Jess's mysteries, this one is called Frolic and you can find it at Jess's site or at the QuiltWoman's site.
I don't like a lot of print on black back ground fabrics, but I just love that one in the picture above. It's sooo pretty!! Can't wait to have this one pieced.
Both the mysteries are from last year. If you don't want to see what the quilt looks like before you put it together, contact Jess here and ask her for the mystery patterns from last year. The previous links will take you to the pattern with a full disclosure of what it looks like :)
Sunny days are better days for sewing at my house, as the munchkins are all outside playing. So not sure how much I'll be getting done this weekend.
Have a great day all!
