I love April because it is my birthday month and Spring has finally arrived. I finished 2 projects this past few months. I started a quilt at the retreat on the coast in Jan and finished it this week. I placed it on the quilt machine yesterday and plan to get it done by the end of April. I don't believe in having UFO's. I took a 2 day class called Zinnia with Melinda Bula at Sisters in 2011. I finished the Zinnia in August but finally did the thread play in March 2013. I wanted to get it done to show her this year at Sisters. I'm taking her 2 day class in July called Hibiscus. I was able to show her my Coneflower at Houston in 2011 but was unable to get in her class. She is a wonderful teacher. My Zinnia turned out great. I used Sulky Rayon thread which makes the Zinnia POP. Here are a few pictures of my Zinnia.
