April UFO

I know this is kind of a weird choice for April, but I'm picking a Christmas quilt to finish for my UFO this month. It's not that I am in the Christmas mood, I just feel like finishing my "Countdown to Christmas"  because I know exactly how I want to quilt it. It's not even a very old UFO since I finished piecing the top in December. The first step is to start collecting supplies for the "3 B's" ... Backing, Batting and Binding.
To see more UFO promises for April, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Love the fabrics you used.

Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it.

Mine is still a top also and I would like to hand quilt mine too....one day!

Gorgeous quilt! Starting now will make sure that it will be ready by Christmas. How are you planning to quilt it?

A finish is a finish...no matter how old the UFO is!!!

It's a good idea to finish it now so that when December hits, you will already have it to display or gift to someone!

I love this quilt. Minis are not really my thing, but I gave my mom a kit to make this for Christmas. I can't wait to see how you quilt it.

If you finish that Christmas quilt now, then it will be all ready when Christmas comes, not being speedily finished then. Good thinking!

Not weird at all! It will be nice to have a wonderful Christmas quilt all done and ready for the season :) I love the stars sprinkled throughout this one - such a lovely quilt.

This is beautiful! I'm hoping to complete a Christmas quilt this month, too.

That is just lovely!

Makes sense to quilt it now, then it will be ready to go for Christmas this year. It's a gorgeous quilt.
