ALYOF April (finishes)

Just a little over two days from now and it will be May!  That means it is time for another re ~ cap of this months goals/finishes.

Finish Goals:
Make the OOO Rah Wallet ~ Sew the rows together and quilt my row along quilt top

Firs up the OOO Rah Wallet

Although I have finished making my wallet,it is the only one made. (but I am still counting it as a finish)  The reason,with all of the fabrics/layers in this wallet it was almost impossible for me to sew through all of them!  The final top stitching around the outside of the wallet,not going to happen with my machine,even with a brand new leather needle!

Can you see how the corners are not uniform?  Even though I used the tip/trick from the pattern,with all of the bulk I was not able to get them any better than this :(  Even with all of the issues with this I really do like the pattern,and think with a couple of tweaks,it might turn out better.  So I am not giving up or ditching the pattern just yet...

My row quilt,this is how it looked at the beginning of the month.

Here it is today!  Where is the star row,you ask?  Well I decided to put it on the back side of the quilt :)

Not sure if you can see the quilting in this shot?  My first ever FMQ Stippling!

The Gravy:

Table topper/mat from a mini charm pack of Noteworthy.

A few key fobs...more coming up later

Triple zip pouch with my Kokopelli/southwestern prints.

Playing with shapes baby quilt.

Modern Mirrors quilt.

A tablet keeper,which an ipad would fit in perfectly,I plan to alter the pattern and make attempt to make some different sizes.  This was made with a mini charm pack of Tapestry and Kona Sand for the solid.

A look at the inside,this stripe fabric is not my first choice,but since I am trying to use fabrics from my stash...  The spline was made with squares I made from the triangles cut off to make the larger squares.  Sorry I don't have an ipad,so can't show you how it fits.

Last but most certainly not least is a stuffy,whose pattern has been patiently waiting on one of my pinterest boards :)  You can find the pattern here,if you want to make one of your own!  This one will be heading over to Hopeful Threads blog for the monthly project.  This month it was for foster kids,and even though I really wanted to participate,I did not commit,because I was not sure if time would permit.

Whew!  It has been a busy month!  Off to see what else I can accomplish before it is over.  Have a great week,hope to post mid week again :)

Linking up over at Melissa's Linky Party
