Setting Another Goal

It time to set that One Monthly Goal and I know just the one! In fact this just may be my current oldest living UFO. Don't hold me to that because you know it's always possible to unearth something even older in the stash!
Yep, my little sunflower houses quilt. I started this around 1990!! Don't judge me too harshly. I had teenagers (gasp), college students (gasp, gasp), a full time job and ailing in-laws. The points don't match but it's a cheerful little thing all the same and I've decided to rescue it.
For my February goal I'll get it quilted and bound by golly!
Go over to Red Letter Quilts to see what others are choosing for their One Monthly Goal and join in yourself. What will your monthly goal be?

Until next time,

    1. Do you even know where it is at this point? I unearthed this one because I completely gutted the sewing room otherwise it never would have come to light!

    1. I think this OMG challenge will be a constant parade of UFOs for me so watch out there's no telling what will pop up!
