OMG for March
My One Monthly Goal for March will be abbreviated because we're planning on traveling this month and I won't have a lot of time in the sewing room. See that? I'm already making excuses about why I can't get anything done!
I'll be quilting this strip quilt which really hasn't been in the UFO pile all that long, maybe only a year or two. It's made from a collection of 2.5" strips I had in the scrap box and took all of an hour to sew together. Truly, it took longer to coordinate the colors and press the strips than put this together. I even made a pieced backing and had it sandwiched and then I forgot all about it.
I'll be quilting it with this yummy green cotton thread from Connecting Threads that I already have in my thread stash. I love this thread and use it a lot, I wish I had all their colors.
Aren't these fabrics something? I told you they were in the scrap box and who knows how long they had been marinating in there. My plan for this quilt was that there are usually not enough masculine type quilts donated and this was as close as I could come without buying fabric.
So there you have it, my One Monthly Goal for March is to get this quilt quilted. I'll leave binding for next month I wouldn't want to stress myself out now would I!
