February quilting goals: How’d I do?
I had such wonderful sewing goals for this month. But alas, the best laid plans are meant to be broken. I didn’t accomplish anywhere near what I wanted to thanks to a short month, and an unexpected sewing machine repair that left me without a machine for a week.
Here’s what I did manage to finish:
Quilt, bind and label the ombre crib quilt
Done, done and not done. My sewing machine broke a few hours before the baby shower just as I was finishing up sewing the binding to the right side of the quilt. Thankfully my awesome neighbor is also a quilter and let me finish up on her machine. I put the final stitch in the binding as it as time to leave for the shower, so the label didn’t happen. But I did finish in time for the big event, so that’s what’s important.
Quilt a secret quilting project that I can’t quite talk about just yet
I didn’t have one free Saturday to get over to the shop where I rent time on a longarm. But I should be able to fit this in this weekend, so we’re moving this project to the March quilting goals
Finish the February BOMs
I finished these at 10 p.m. on February 28, but I finished them in February, so that counts. Did you get all of your blocks done? There are instructions on how to put the center together and properly measure and cut your borders in the March BOM.
Make valances for the nursery
I am so excited to report that these are finished and have been hung in the nursery. I even put together a tutorial on how to make tab top curtains.
Yeah, that didn’t happen.
Make a hanging sleeve for the Chevron quilt and hang it in the living room
Also didn’t happen. I still have a snowball quilt hanging. But then again there is still snow on the ground, so maybe it isn’t quite so inappropriate.
Finish hand quilting one side of my wedding quilt
Make three Christmas New York Beauty blocks
Yet again, my Christmas New York Beauty was neglected. I really want this done before the baby is born, so I need to make it a priority in March.
What did you finish in February?
