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!
