One Monthly Goal: January 2021

The old year ended and the new year started with some significant sewing room time.  I've mainly been playing catch up with the Bonnie Hunter mystery, Grassy Creek.  That will be high up on the to do list, but it's probably more than I can finish for my January One Monthly Goal

The plan for 2021 is to continue reducing the size of my UFO list. Since that's the goal, the January OMG should probably be getting the Red, White and Blue Stars quilt prepped and sent out for quilting. 

Red, White and Blue Stars: Setting self designed

The quilt top was finished back in November, but both work and the holiday rush started and it just sat.  One of my stitching projects on New Year's Eve was to finish piecing the backing.

The backing is all pieced, it just needs a good pressing and final clean up, as does the quilt top.  I need to check if I have the right sized batting too. 

So that's my OMG for January, prep the quilt top/backing, locate the batting and package it all for shipment out to Trudy for quilting. That should be doable this month.  Then hopefully I can claim my first finish sometime in February.  

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the first OMG of 2021.
