APQ Resolution [April]

I'll start off with a round up of the March project. Nothing. I didn't even touch it.

Moving on. And this month I'm going to make more of an effort.This month's project is number 11, which for me means the Summer Sampler 2016. This is perfect timing, as I've seen rumours that there may be another Summer Sampler this year - it would be good to have finished one before being tempted with another wouldn't it - i know - not my normal style! Also - these fabrics are just perfect for this time of year!

The original quilt design is 20 blocks. I've made 10 so far, scattered through this post.

The fabrics I'm using are a long hoarded bundle of Dreamin' Vintage by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery mixed with some Art Gallery Pure Elements. I even managed to pick up a large piece of one of the prints in a sale to have a matching backing!

None of the blocks are particularly difficult - in facet I've made an eleventh block already, so there is really no excuse to not make progress.

On a slightly different, but related note, I'm taking part in the #100dayschallenge this year. It started on 4th April and runs for, you'll never guess, 100 days. My plan is to spend a little bit of time each days sitting at my machine and doing some machine piecing - sometimes it's really easy to just slump on the sofa with hand sewing after a long day! These blocks are on the list to be tackled in the early days and I'm hoping this challenge will give this quilt some impetus!
