February One Monthly Goal

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

  1. I know what you mean about getting tired of red, white, and blue. This top is going to be great for TAPS.

    Snowing again this morning. . . I'm getting weary of the white stuff!

  4. I get tired of some color choices after awhile, sometimes by time I get done with a quilt I am so tired of it I end up passing it on to someone else right away and do not even use it.

  5. You could leave the misplaced block as a "design element." (But it would drive me crazy!) You've done well by R/W/B -- now you can choose another colorway!
