March recap and April goals

March was a great sewing month for me and I felt that I really got a lot accomplished. It has been a long time since that has happened.
Let's see how I did on my March goals.
Make my Just Right bag - DONE!
This was my main goal for the month and I'm still so thrilled who this turned out. I've already tested it and it is really a great size.

I also had hoped to complete a few other items.
Quilt and finish my Asian table runner - DONE!
Quilt and bind one of the Valentine's table runners - NOPE!
And last on the list was to complete the February Pink blocks and the March Teal blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge - DONE!
Here is February's Pink blocks.
And here are March's Teal blocks.
I feel that this was a Whoo Hoo month. I completed 3 out of 4 of my goals. 
So now what is up next and my goal for April?
Quilting and bind the girl version of the Grow With Me quilts for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.
 And the boy version.
Knowing that I'll be away most of next week attending MQX East aka the New England Quilt Festival, I don't want to make my list too long. Plus the following week the kids have off for Spring break so there won't be as much Me sewing time available. But I always have a To Do list so also on that list for this month and keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to complete it will be to quilt and bind the 3rd quilt for the Hands2Help Challenge.
It would be fantastic if I could have these 3 quilts all done and on their way to their respective charities before the month is over.

So what are your plans for this month? Are you going away on vacation for Spring break?

I don't have little ones breaking for Spring, but I do hope to get out a bit once this warm weather stays with us. Good luck in getting all 3 quilts done.

Congrats! Those are all cute!
Spring break for us is next week. Hubby is on shift Mon-Tues, and with a new baby, we're not planning on going anywhere. Maybe some day trips like a museum or zoo or something.
