Jan. review - Feb. goals

1/12th of the year is gone already! In January I had three finishes and made four tops to donate. Not bad.

For February my goals are to finish the maple leaf quilt, make the t-shirt graduation quilt, and work on my improv Chinese Coin quilt. I am now 62% done with quilting the maple leaf quilt.

I found another UFO. I can't believe I didn't finished this piece. It is even bound! I am hand quilting it and have had it a very long time. The star block was made by an aunt of a friend. It was the only piece of patchwork she had of her aunt's. She wanted me to put it in a wall hanging so I found some fabrics that look good with the fabrics in the star block and made this simple piece. It is probably 80% quilted! Why did I stop? I have no idea, but I just want to get this done and given to the person it belongs to.

I did try and find the stencil I used for the solid muslin blocks, but it seems to have been lost or given away over the years. I will have to make up some templates and redraw the design in the four squares left to quilt.

Quilting for others time! I love that unusual setting for the star block.

These old UFOs need to learn to finish themselves!

I hope you can finish that hand quilting soon and have that off your mind. Isn't it amazing how we can put these things away and forget about then?

What a lovely thing to do for someone. I LOVE that idea.
