February Finished/March Goals

I did well on my February Finishes - EXCEPT the Farmer's Wife again.  I actually had all my goals (except the FW) completed in the first 2 weeks, then my family took over my time.  I haven't turned on the machine since the February retreat.  I am feeling a little withdraw.


  • 4 patch flannel quilt (at my binder)
  • Aqua and Tan Hopscotch pattern (Ready to hand stitch)
  • Crazy Eights pattern fall colors (at my binder)

I will post pictures once I get them back.  I think I am working poor Eleanor to death.

Goals for March:

  1. Quilt the Monkey Tumbler Quilt (I pieced the backing last month) and bind
  2. Make the backing and quilt the pink/fuschia quilt ( I put the blocks together in January) and bind
  3. Put borders on the town square quilt and piece the backing
  4. Start sewing the blocks together on my second Carolina Crossroads quilt

Bonus projects: (it is good to dream right?)
  1. Quilt my Red/Black/Grey Twister
  2. Quilt the Grey/Yellow plus quilt.
March is a longer month, so I hope to accomplish a little more.  I have a retreat coming up soon, so  I am optimistic that I can get more than 2 finishes this month.  Looking at my goals, I guess I will have to round up some more piecing for this quilt retreat unless I get some of these quilts quilted.  At the last retreat, I spent one whole day sewing bindings on.

I am ahead of schedule so far this year with my goal being 20 finishes.  It would be great if I could get 4 more finishes this month.

Yay for being ahead of schedule on finishes! Love the aqua and tan quilt - what a pretty color combo. And your bright Carolina Crossroads is gorgeous too.
