April in Review and Small Blog Meet Up by Lily's Quilts

Welcome May! Where has the time gone. My precious little Everett is already 6 weeks old, and if feels like just yesterday I was pregnant! Today I am going to take a look back at the month of April, and join in with other at Lily's Quilts Fresh Day of Sewing and Small Blog Meet Up

Fresh Day of Sewing is an great opportunity of Quilters alike to come together, and share our accomplisments and projects each month. And Small Blog Meet Up is a perfect opportunity for New Bloggers like myself to share the word about their blogs and meet other new bloggers as well!

So today I share with you my adventures of April…

April was a rollar coaster of a month! At the very beginning of the month my sister-in-law passed away at 20 years old, which was devastating for our family. With her passing came my first project of the month. My Black and White Memories Quilt for my mother-in-law, you can read all about this project here.

My next major accomplishment in April, was the launch of Pile O' Fabric. My "day" job is freelance web and graphic design, and my big project this month was for myself! Designing and Developing Pile O' Fabric. I am so excited to have joined blogland and can't wait to meet others and share my projects with them! You can read my very first blog post here.

I also joined in with Sew,Mama,Sew! for their Fat Quarter Idol challenge twice in April, which was a complete blast, and I will continue that this month as well.

The Patchwork Prism Quilt Along over at Sweet Diesel Designs started this April, and I was able to get my Quilt started which, I am super super excited about. You can see my current progress here.

My last project of the month was my Sunrise Summer Baby Quilt, which was my most relaxing project of the month! You can read all about it here.

It was a very jam packed month, outside of my quilting projects were lots laugh, giggles, and smiles from my two little kiddos, and of course plenty of messes!! 

I hope you will join me for more fun to come!
