One Monthly Goal

Last year my goal of a quilt finish every month was close but not quite achieved. The list of finishes might be close to 1 a month.....but it wasn't close to the list of projects that I wanted to complete.  How does that happen....finish quilts but a number of UFO’s still exist. This was on the 2017 UFO list.

One of the ways this occurs is by not getting the "quilting" done.  I’m not doing much on the long arm lately, spending too much time with DH in the apartment.  That means lots of tops hanging around.  Scrap Crystals, the June 2016 Bonnie Hunter class is now off the machine and done.

My goal on this one was to practice diagonal straight line.  These are pretty good....a whole lot of them are awful.

I do like the design on the sashing.  It is amazing how an arched template and a little imagination can make a neat design.

The binding was put on in the apartment, a quick photo with the snow on the porch.

This quilt is now on the long arm.  So this month the goal is to get it off the machine.  Then the binding can put stitched down in the apartment.  Not today.  Sewing at my besties house for the day!

Happy Stitching,

  1. Beautiful! Good for you getting it off your list! I think we'll always have UFOs, though...part of the creative process.

  2. That is a beautiful quilt, and I think your quilting looks great! Wish I could do that well; but then I haven't tried, or even practiced lately! Maybe soon, but on my Janome 8900, not a long arm. ---"Love"

  3. Very pretty. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  4. Scrap Crystals is so pretty, I love your colors and the quilting is very nice! Getting it finished is a great accomplishment.

  5. Wow! What a gorgeous quilt. Love that colour combination and the quilting really enhances the design.

  6. I'm behind in my blog reading but I am glad I finally caught up with yours . I love this quilt! The colours, the design, the quilting...
