Little Susan is done completely and so is Antique Toy Sewing Machines! I also picked my fabrics for my Tea for Two quilt top. Pictures may not be in order but they are here! 
I really enjoyed quilting these myself. I have been broadening my free motion quilting and am no longer as scared as I was. They are so right when they say practice, practice, practice.

I will be using the blue for sashing and borders. The pink will be used as a accent border.

April UFOs

I am going to put my embroidered antique sewing machine blocks together. I embroidered the blocks years ago. Would love to have this completely done by months end but not sure how my surgery will go.
This next UFO is was a gift of blocks from my secret pal several years ago. I have no idea where she got them nor who made them. My secret pal was Lovina Payton. Wonderful lady.
I want to pick the fabric to sash with and the borders.
The 3rd UFO is four blocks I embroidered called Little Susan. I got the pattern from one of the quilt books a couple of years ago. I learned a valuable lesson with these blocks. You use crayons to color them with then embroider the blocks. I did it in reverse and I discovered I couldn't get up close to the lines. Live and learn. Still came out really cute. I want to have this little 36" X 36" table topper quilted.

That's plenty on my plate for April!
Let's see how well I do....
