February Goals


Being February is a short month and I have lot's of appointments, I am keeping things to small goals.  This quilt was a sew along with Temecula Quilt Co early last year.  I hope to at least get it basted in prep for quilting.  I would love to do a Baptist Fan by hand.  This will be for Something Old and Slow Stitching Sundays so this is a bit of a long term project.



I pulled this for Let's Book It - lots of great projects in here and it was hard to pick one.



But I decided on this one.  I will also use it for Something New.  I think I am going to math out those little geese for paper piecing.  And for sure the applique will be fused/machine finished.  I may need someone to hold my hand during that.

February's NewFO will be the Super Bowl Sunday Mystery with my LQS.  I have the applique part of the Relaxing Round Robin and will combine the Charm Challenge with Handmade Christmas again.   

We are to have a bit warmer weekend - so maybe I'll get a stroll or two outside for some vitamin D.

CLOSING THOUGHT

"Away in a meadow all covered with snow
The little old groundhog looks for his shadow
The clouds in the sky determine our fate
If winter will leave us all early or late."
Don Halley


Sewingly Yours,

  1. I could have written this post! I have my version of that TQC sew-along still unquilted AND I have that same book and not made a single thing out of it, even though, as you said, there are lots of great projects. I suppose it isn't hard for you to guess that I would choose that same pattern as my first from the book!

  3. I have that book too and that is a great project. If you need help drawing up the flying geese to size to print out from EQ, let me know. That's my specialty. LOL

  4. You have a realistic set of goals. I hope you do get out for some natural Vitamin D. We have seen very little sun lately. Just snow, snow, snow, oh yes and wind to blow it around. I am going to look at let's book it this month. It's a great idea.

  8. Lovely row quilt and hand quilting would be lovely on it. You have some lovely things planned. Warmer weekends are nice! We go snow to scrub out the inversion so just having some sunshine is pleasant!

  11. Oh! This reminds me that I was going to join the Book It with you, lol! It isn't like I don't have an entire shelf of books to choose from. :)

  12. I think I will be scaling back just a tad for February too Sharon. So far, I'm still not done with my January goals, but I should finish up soon. Love the book you've chosen and the quilt from it is too cute! I'd be paper-piecing those fg's too!!! We're supposed to get ice and snow tonight, so I don't guess our weather will be any nicer - boohoo!!!!

  14. Are you doing paper piecing as your 'new' technique for February? Me too! Our teacher has chosen a block that looks a lot more complicated than flying geese! Good luck with your February goals.

  15. I really like the new project you have chosen. The stretched churn dash in the block appeals to me. After the mild weekend, we've got snow here today. I am not a happy camper.

  20. I love the row quilt you pieced. Nice subtle colours. Quite a big hand quilting job. The project you have chosen from the book is lovely. The flying geese look great.
