One Monthly Goal: March 2017


February was a pretty productive month, especially considering that it's a short one. Will March be as productive? We shall see! Here's what's on my to do queue:

Quilting:
  • Auburn quilt: piece and finish 
  • Stella's quilt: finalize design and start
  • Otto's memory quilt
  • Charity quilt: Brutus
  • Charity quilt: campers
  • Wedding quilts: design quilts for J&T and E&J, and maybe M&J.
  • quilt for Dare to Be Square
  • Bee Hive 2017: complete March block
  • Milky Way Quilt along: complete March block
  • Hexies: total of 100 
  • Start free motion practice blocks
Sewing:
  • Weighted blanket for Niels
  • Make second magnetic fidget 
  • Sketch out rocket blanket
  • car poncho
  • make a sewing apron
One Monthly Goal is...

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. Imagine my delight when I found this completed log cabin top!


She had some additional fabric, so I'm going to look through it again to see if I can make some more blocks to widen the quilt, or if I'll use it for the backing as is. I'm so happy that I'll have the opportunity to give a grieving family one last gift.
