I’m not a very good procrastinator. I hate it. It stresses me out. The fact that I’m posting this on the very last possible day is not normal for me. But I really did need every single 28 days in this month to finish the goals I made for the February Lovely Year of Finishes.
Alright – let’s take a look at how I did for the month of February.
Goal 1- Project QUILTING, Challenge 3 – Annie’s Vision – FINISHED!
See how this quilt was created by checking out my process post.
Goal 2 – Capri’s Future Quilter’s Quilt – PIECED
Check out the my flickr set to see all the blocks that came. Capri and I are going to work on quilting this together…I think she’ll get a kick out of helping me choose quilting designs and even doing some of the free motion herself.
Goal 3 – Seasons Quilt – FINISHED
This was the goal this month that I really pushed to the end.
It didn’t take me long to get the summer and winter postage trees make but it did take me a while to figure out how I was going to finish it.
- Should I add sashing?
- Which way should the quilt hang?
- How many sashings should I add?
Those were all things I had to figure out. I tried to keep it on my design wall while I was working on other projects to keep it in my mind and figure out how to move forward with it.
After a few discussions with Diane and lots of photo’s to look at it in different ways I finally made the decisions. I free motioned the quilt yesterday and just put the binding and hanging sleeve on this morning! DONE!
Oh…and I think I’m going to write up a pattern on how to do this entire quilt – sound good? You interested?
Better pictures coming when I get better light….
Goal 4 – Wish Upon A Star – FINISHED
So, in summary – if it weren’t for ‘A Lovely Year of Finishes’ I’m guessing my Seasons Quilt would not be done yet. It was a fantastic motivation to get it finished, marked off the list, and off my mind! Now…I have to figure out what I want to commit myself to for tomorrow’s March Goal Setting…
