Goal number 1 was to finish getting the binding on the Evening Star quilt. That's done.

That's my first finish of 2013. If I get the rest of this month's goals done, I'll end the month with five finishes.
Goal number 2 is to make the binding and get it sewn onto The Sofa Quilt. The binding is made, attached to the front, and I'm working on hand stitching it to the back.

I'm just about to turn the corner on the first side. This will be finish number 2, hopefully sometime this weekend.
Goal number 5 was to finish the Calico Cats quilt. Since the beginning of the month all the blocks have been made, the blocks have been sewn together, and the borders added to make it a finished flimsy.

It was sent out for quilting, which is finished now. It should be back here next week all ready for binding.
I'm feeling really good about what's been done so far. Goals 3 and 4 were to make and sew the binding on the OSU Quilt and Sweet Treats. No progress on those two goals as yet, but I'm sure it will happen this next week.
Hope your sewing plans for the month have been going well. I'm ready to get these 5 quilts done. It's been a bit of a forced march with these as they are gifts that need to be done this month. It's definitely made me manage my time more effectively, but I'm ready for a few months being able to sew without deadlines. Too bad, I really should start looking at what I want to get done for Christmas gifts.
