I start thinking of my next one monthly goal long before the current one is finished. This particular UFO wasn't the one I was thinking of doing. I started going through the bins and boxes of UFOs to find one that I wanted to get finished soon. This one using 16 patches caught my eye. All the blocks are done although I may replace one of the brighter blue ones. These blocks came from my friends in the FCQ Equilters group in late 2010/January 2011. I think they have aged enough. Time to get on with finishing them. And, I can always donate it to TAPS.
So my goal this month is to get the top finished. It will have dark red sashing (cut 1.25 if I remember correctly.) Then it will be getting a piano key border. So, doable but I'll have to keep focused on it as February is a short month. Hum, this is definitely not laid out correctly. I need to check all the blocks to make sure they all have a dark fabric in the top left corner. And, yes, I am tired of working in red, white and blue but I have a great use for them once finished. Hopefully, I'll be having the quilting and the binding as my March goal. Unless I go all super efficient and get it all done this month. That could happen. Or not.
And, here's what we saw Monday morning when we went to work out. Trees with a dusting of snow.
I'm linking up with Elm Creek Quilts February Goal Setting and Midweek Makers at Quilt Fabrication. I hope you'll join me on a tea break to see all the great things happening around the internet.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
