ALYoF April Finishes party....

My Lovely Year of Finishes April goal is finally a table runner...
no longer a UFO...
Cinnamon & Cocoa is a Bunny Hill Designs pattern from 2009.

I love how it turned out...now to finish the quilt that goes with it. 
It's called Rabbits Prefer Embroidery, also designed by Anne Sutton.

 I have the embroidery blocks finished...
probably finished them about 5 years ago...a red set of blocks
and a brown set that I forgot I had finished stitching.
The other goal for Aprils ALYoF was to get the blocks cut for one of two batik quilts that are on my 'to do' list...look...one top is finished. 
The pattern was in the February 2009 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  
...hopefully I will have it quilted this week and I can stitch the binding when we go to Canada next Friday.

A Lovely Year of Finishes April goal...

My Cinnamon and Cocoa table runner is quilted
but still has no binding...
...my April goal is to finish the binding...
and because this should be a quick finish as soon as
I decide on the fabric I am also adding to my April goal.
I have a couple of batik quilts I want to make,
I have the fabrics pressed
ready to start cutting and decided on 2 patterns.
My goal is to have the fabrics cut for at least one of the quilts.
I will be cutting Zen first.

We have had a lot of company visiting from Canada since mid March.
The weeks have been very busy.
