March One Monthly Goal: Potions

March is moving along, so it's definitely time to decide on a One Monthly Goal for the month. 

My OMGs for January and February were to make progress on the Potions quilt.  Since it has to be finished before the first week in May it's been the priority project on my list.  

The quilt top is finished.

Potions, Pattern from Flying Parrot Quilts

Adding the dark blue border to the top and sides makes it look more like a shelving unit, at least I think it does.  

Next step is to work out how to piece the backing.

The horizontally pieced backing is probably easier since my backing fabric is actually a horizontal stripe. 

That way I don't have to worry about matching rows up.  I just need to confirm I have enough yardage for that lay out. I love the backing fabric for this project (it's from Robert Kaufman, Science Fair 3 Beakers Bright).  

So the goal for March is to finish the backing, prep both the back and the quilt top for quilting, then get it sent out for quilting.  I think that's doable. Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the March One Monthly Goal linky party.

Great work on this. SIT is going to love it. I agree about the back. Horizontal is the right way to go.

What a cute backing fabric! Perfect for your Potion quilt. Horizontally sounds the easiest way to piece it.
It's going to be fun to achieve your OMG!

The quilt top turned out so well. I like the graphic nature of the beakers with the solid prints. The backing fabric is perfect! SIT will be very pleased, I think!
