March - 2013 The Year of Finished Projects

The first Thursday in March is here, so it's time to hook up with Lynn over at Never too hot to stitch to report on progress for - 

February was a short month and my goals may have been a bit ambitious.  Here's what gone done and what didn't.  

1.  Scrappy Stars
  • make 5 more blocks               Done

2.  Evening Star
  • make binding                         Done
  • attach binding to quilt             Done
  • hand sew binding to back

3.  The Sofa Quilt
  • sew all the blocks together     Done
  • add borders                           2 of 6 borders done
  • make backing
  • ship off for quilting

4.  Calico Cats
  • make 18 cat blocks               5 blocks completed

5.  OSU Quilt (NewFO)
  • decide on pattern                  Done
  • cut fabrics                            Done
  • make first block                   Done

So I finished goals 1 and 5 and made progress on all the other goals. Making 18 cat blocks was probably a bit optimistic, as was getting The Sofa Quilt finished and out the door for quilting.  Not a bad month overall, especially since it's the shortest month.  

For March, I need to pick up speed on a few of these quilts as they need to be finished by mid May. 

March 2013 Goals
1.  Evening Star
  • hand stitch binding to back
2.  The Sofa Quilt
  • add borders
  • make backing
  • ship off for quilting
3.  Sweet Treats
  • sew the blocks and sashing together
  • add borders
  • make backing
  • ship off for quilting
4.  Calico Cats
  • Make 13 blocks
5.  OSU Quilt 
  • Make 17 blocks

That's a pretty ambitious list, but these are the 5 quilts that need to be done by May.  Thankfully only one volleyball tournament this month.

You did a great job this month had a busy month out of home and as I recall you had a few germs to contend with.

Good luck with March can do it !

You did make great progress!! How fun. Excellent list for March. I don't know if I will get near as much done this month as you.

Great work on your goals - I always think I'll get more done than is humanly possible. Love the cat quilt and can't wait to see it finished!
