February Goals

First February goal is to finish my Tree of Life quilt top for A Lovely Year of Finishes. I've been working on this for a long time! I love designing my own tops but it takes more time to make with lots of decisions! Falls under 'The Pleasure is in the Process'. With most of them made now, it's on to finishing the top...

Second is to work on Lori @ Humble Quilts QAL ~ MidWinter Blues. Got a start on my cutting...
This is Lori's finished top
 and the antique inspiration quilt that she is working from...
I love this antique quilt and am toying with the idea of reproducing it for my project. Love how the alternating blocks form another pattern and how, altho set on point, looks like a straight set.

Third is to continue on with the Amaretto Cottage BOM with Janie. She and I got started on the next block last Wednesday, there are four of these, this is one of mine...

Fourth is to make the first block in Barbara Brackman's new BOM Threads of Memory...

Kathy, a quilter participating in A Lovely Year of Finishes posted her finish (#66) for January and it's her Civil War Sampler top from Barbara Brackman's 2011 Civil War BOW!  It really got me thinking about my sampler and getting that back on to my list of goals for this year. My January finish is #87 the NYD Mystery quilt top. Last night I finished quilting it so it is also quilted for a finish!

Lofty goals considering all I have going on this month switching out longarms and reorganizing my studio. It will be a fun month, once I shake this cold off!

Have a great Super Bowl Weekend!


  1. Your Tree of Life quilt is stunning - LOTS of work in that project! Looks like you're making your Midwinter Blues quilt with more than 5 blocks? That'll be fun to see - you've got some great fabrics picked out.

  2. That's a beautiful Tree of Life quilt. That pattern's on my "someday" list. Good luck with the finish!

  3. Always good to have goals! Love the quilting on your NYD mystery machine arrive?

  4. Goals are a great motivator and help keep us focused, and I think posting them helps even more. I will look forward to seeing post of your progress on these great projects.

  5. Your tree of life quilt is wonderful. I love the secondary star design in the centre your block placement makes.

  6. A busy month! I too have to make my first Threads of Memory Block this month - need more hours in the day.

  7. I look forward to seeing your progress on your quilts.
    pretty quilt design. have fun in getting reorganized.

  8. You are very ambitious! I am a good cheerleader. :) Beautiful projects too!!
