My OMG (One monthly goal) for March was to continue to work on the Laundry Day Tee.
I had already finished one tunic.
I was hoping to sew five more!
And I am happy to say that I accomplished the goal!
I learned that I do not enjoy using Jack the Ripper on stretch knit seams! I suggest getting it right the first time.
Having said that, these tunics are made from a beginner’s pattern…easy to sew…so long as one pins this slippery fabric well, and doesn’t get too confident by the time one is sewing her sixth tunic!
I now have six simple tunics that I can wear with pajamas or jeans. Versatile and comfortable. Just the way I like it!
I also wanted to complete 3 blocks for the Squared Away Sampler sponsored by So Scrappy and The Academic Quilter. You can see the blocks that I made by clicking here.
The last goal for March was to make progress on quilting my friendship row by row. Not much to see here, but I have worked on it a little bit.
Overall, I am pleased with my productiveness this month.

My September UFO goal was to complete the borders for my friendship row by row quilt.
Lots of four patches sewn into border rows!
Four patch sashings and borders are bringing the rows together!
And I’ve got a flimsy!
I pieced the backing from fabric found in the stash instead of going shopping.
But I forgot that I had one more strip to include! So I had to re-piece the backing! Ha, ha!
I am so happy that I completed the goal of getting this project sewn into a flimsy!
I purchased a Grace frame, so this quilt will be my very first project that I have quilted on a frame.
I know…I should have loaded a practice piece (or 10), but I am just going for it. And what a learning curve it is! None of my straight line quilting is straight! Ha, ha! I don’t really mind at all. This row by row is so full of memories for me, and I am adding to the memories.
