February One Monthly Goal - Still Dithering

Tomorrow is the 7th of February and I've yet to choose a One Monthly Goal for February. 

I'm having a hard time deciding between three different goals. 

1.  Inverted Star is quilted and just needs to have the label completed, the binding made and then sewn on.  Here's the Scientist in Training approved label. 

Unfortunately, the SIT is studying for her Organic I exam on Friday this week, so it's not likely I'll get anything from her before the weekend.  But then she has a physics test and a differential equations test the following week, so I may not get anything out of her till the end of the month.  Maybe it's best to decide on what to use for the binding, get that made, but not try to get this one completely done by the end of the month.  So what else is on the list as a potential OMG?  

2.  Christmas Angels needs the borders added, backing made and to be prepped for quilting. 

Christmas Angels, Pattern by Kate

It's been crazy at work, plus it's a short month.  I could probably get the borders added by the end of the month, but not the backing and the prepping.  Or I could go completely off script for February's OMG.  

3.  Get all the pieces cut for a new mystery quilt along over at Little Bunny Quilts

The cutting instructions come out the 18th, so I'd still have time to get that done by the end of the month. But the push for this year was to focus on the older quilts on the UFO list.  So hmmm.  

So what's my February OMG?   I'm going to stick to my plan to focus on getting projects moved off the UFO list.  The most doable thing that adheres to the 2019 plan is getting the borders on the Christmas Angels quilt. So that's the goal for Febuary 2019.   If I get the backing made, that will be a bonus.  

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the February One Monthly Goal.

I would choose just one. The one with the least amount of work to do. That way you can complete it with less pressure and move into one of the others when you are not under pressure to complete it.

I would focus first on the Christmas Angels quilt too. I think getting it finished and ready to send off will feel like a bigger accomplishment than if you wait on the other two projects and then feel rushed to try to complete them. :D

Sounds like a good plan - the Christmas Angels one doesn't look like it is waiting for someone else to do their part, so it is more in your control.

I agree with Chris. Pick the one you know you can finish. It’s not a contest. Also, if I know anything at all about you, it is this: You do not dither.

You made a great choice kate and one that should be easily doable. I've been seeing a lot of posts about the Daisy Chain mystery quilt and am tempted to jump on board. It will be fun to watch the mystery unfold!
