April Goals - OMG / Bee, Myself and I

I've have lots to do, but not much "umph" to do it. I went to the doctor last Thursday for an injection in my right knee, and was told it could take 2-3 weeks for it to become effective. I go on Tuesday to get the left knee done. So unless the shots take effect much quicker than anticipated, there will be little quilting done in April. This means I need to adjust my plans.  Also I'm the queen for both of my bees this month, so I don't have any bee blocks to make...well I have to  make more blocks for Cole's quilts, but they don't have to be sent anywhere.

So knowing I most likely won't be able to quilt, I'm adjusting my goals to fit that plan. For my OMG main goal I'm list Ariella's quilt top. It is close to being finished, with a little push I could get the top done. I don't have picture, because it is still a mystery to Ariella and her mom. But here was the starting point.

I was really struggling with what to do for Bee, Myself and I. Then I decided that I would work on my cross quilt.  Yes, all the blocks are made but I still need to piece the top. Since it is going to be a big quilt and the blocks are only 6 inches, I think I will work on piecing the top in batches. So my goal for April is to get at least 10 four patches of blocks pieced. A four patch of the blocks will be 12 x 12, so that let's me get bigger pieces to work with when I actually start putting the top together.

Now because I'm just plain crazy and two goals isn't enough for me in a month, I'm going to add a couple of more things I want to try and get done. I want to start piecing Callie and Beau's wedding top. I'm hoping  it goes together easily. I also want to start piecing Samuel's memory top, I have to get these off of my to do list. I also want to do more blocks for Cole's quilt, hopefully about 10 or more. And lastly if the injections kick in and my knees feel better I would like to get my tic tac toe top quilted. If the shots work within two weeks, I might have a chance.

I'm hoping to have lots and lots to show ya'll at the end of the month. But for now I'm linking up with Heidi at Red Letter Quilts for OMG April. And I will be back at the end of the month to do a recap of what got finished for both OMG and Bee, Myself and I.
