A Lovely Year of Finishes - April Goal

I have decided to join up in the Lovely Year of Finishes challenge for April and see how it goes. I do well with deadlines, and thus far I haven't had much luck doing that.

My goal for April is as follows:

Get my Fracture Quilt basted, quilted, and bound.

This is my completed top. I also have a simple pieced back, but no pictures. The binding is cut, the batting is pre-shrunk, I even have an idea of how I want to quilt it, but no progress has been made in almost a month. This ends now. My goal is to finish this thing and send it off to its intended recipient, who was born at the end of January.

If that gets done, I'd like to try and finish cutting my light text prints for my Japanese X and + Blocks, but that's my personal goal, not for the April challenge.

This is what I have so far. The 2.5" strips to the side are for a Scrappy Trip Along quilt that I want to get started on at some point as well. I am cutting one strip for that, as well as 4 5.5" squares for the X and + blocks. I have not even begun to make a dent in my text prints. :)
