RSC17: April - multicolor

April's RSC challenge has been "multicolor."  I haven't participated each week this month, but I do have a multicolored finish to share as the month concludes.  
This nap quilt used up an assorted set of 30s nine-patch blocks from a long-ago swap.  I think it qualifies for this RSC challenge because it's multi and random!  I have one more evening's worth of stitching to finish on the binding, (just couldn't stay awake last night!) and then it will be ready to enjoy in the gazebo this summer.

Yankee Diary

This month in
we learned about Carrie's growing awareness of the political discord of the time, which culminated in Abraham Lincoln's election and
the impending Civil War.

Right Makes Might

The block set is expanding!

Pollen :(

Ugh!  I'm experiencing the worst spring allergy season I've had in decades!  Due to all the snow we had this past winter, the trees are in especially beautiful bloom this month ... I love to see how pretty they are, but my eyes and nose are miserable, despite various meds.

I'm hoping the abundance of bloom now means we'll enjoy a bounty of fruit later!
