One Monthly Goal :: March 2017 Update

March was a strange month for us: 70 degrees on day. Snow the next. An anticipated blizzard that left us with a dusting, and an unexpected storm that gave us a few inches. Only to be followed by more 70 degree days. Needless to say there were more than a few colds being passed around my son's school. He gets his immune system from his daddy, and is usually only down for a day or two at most. We are currently on the last day of his spring break, and we haven't left the house since Tuesday, when we went to the doctor. My immune system seems to think I should share this cold, but I have remained strong...until this morning. But I'm not sick because the Original Sewing & Quilting Expo is tomorrow!

So, let's recap the month, shall we?

My March OMG was...

To finish the Otto's memory quilt. The backstory on this quilt is that the grandma of one my son's classmates recently passed away. She was an avid quilter. As her family went through her things, they generously asked me if I could put her sewing supplies to good use. Of course, I said yes! I was able to share fabric and notions with friends and my quilting group. As I pored through her stash, I hoped I would be inspired to make a quilt for the family. I was delighted to find part of a log cabin quilt created.

And I finished the quilt by...making two quilts! One for my son's friend and one for his sister. Here's a picture of the front of one and the back of the other. Read more about Nana's Last Gift here.
