February OMG 2019 Update

It is time to share how I did with my February OMG.

It is a great feeling to report that I accomplished the goal of quilting the Leavenworth quilt, and it is also bound and finished!

I don’t like the border that I finished the quilt with…I think the corners overwhelm the quilt.  However, it has grown on me since I washed and dried the quilt.  I wish I took a photo of that because it now has wonderful texture!

Finishing two large quilts (Sugar Town) in one month is a record for me!  I really had to focus and manage my time, but it is worth it!

The photos aren’t great, but they are proof of reaching the goal line!

February OMG 2019

My January OMG (One Monthly Goal) was to stablilize the Leavenworth quilt in preparation for free motion quilting.

For my February OMG, I plan to carryover the Leavenworth quilt, and hope to complete the free motion quilting on it.

I don’t have a plan for the free motion quilting, but I have begun.

Beginning is half the battle!

January OMG 2019 Update

It is time to report progress on my January OMG (One Monthly Goal).

My goal was to machine stitch in the ditch to stablilize the quilt for free motion quilting.

Mission accomplished!

You don’t see the quilting?  Hmmm…here is the view from the back:

January OMG 2019

A new year, a fresh start.  It feels good to begin anew.

I am not making big goals for this year.  No new resolutions that I may keep for a couple of months and then leave by the wayside.

I am keeping it simple.

I want to walk on the beach in the sunshine.

I want to read more; especially His Word, as I have let that slide.

And for January’s OMG (One Monthly Goal), I want to work on the Leavenworth quilt.

I blogged my virtual play time with the Leavenworth Nine Patch block back in January 2013 here and here.

*You can also find those blog posts by clicking on the Quilt Blocks tab at the top of my blog.

Sometime after that, I actually worked up one of my design ideas into a quilt top and pin basted it. I showed it on March 27, 2015.

So my goal for the month is to machine stitch in the ditch so that the quilt layers will be stabilized and I can remove the pins (and thus lighten some of the weight).  The quilt is approximately  74″ x 88″, so it is a large size for machine quilting on a domestic machine.

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts OMG (One Monthly Goal).  Check out what others have chosen to work on this month; it can be very inspiring and motivating!

Pin Basted

 

Woohoooo! 

Not one, but two large quilts pin basted this week!

Hmmmm…

I hope 102 of these blocks play nice together.

I am sneaking in a bit of sewing time, but more than the sewing, I am enjoying having my family visit…love the laughter and all the Grandma hugs and kisses!

Whatever you do, make the time for family…they are so worth it!

Making progress on that new project:

I am going to have to take time out soon…looking forward to more hugs and kisses from visiting family.
