Q1 Finish Along

This challenge took the place of A Lovely Year of Finshes.  While that was a monthly goal setting exercise this is a quarterly one.  I am going to declare what I hope to accomplish this first quarter and for each item I finish from that goal my name is entered for a prize.  I think that's right.  Read here for more info.

I am going to bind my two supersize 9 patch baby quilts.
I am going to bind my 30s feedback patches quilt.
I am going to quilt and bind my 5 Strip Stacks quilts.  2 primary colors and 3 pink and green.
Finally I am going to piece, quilt and bind my queen size pink and black Poppy BQ quilt.

Wish me luck!

Just One Thing

I am a member of the yahoo group Stashbuster.  They talk about their JOT or just one thing that they hope to or have accomplished.  I have been trying to follow this practice recently because I never seem to accomplish anything in the sewing room.

This past week I tried to sew the rows together of a quilt I am working on.  In a matter of a few days I had the top together.  I got Ray to run by the quilt shop to get more of the green I needed to complete the top and got it washed and ready to go into the top.

I've been stash diving and pulling backs for quilts I plan to quilt soon.  I ran across the purple I was planning to add to another top for the final border and got that top done.  I pressed its twin so I can quilt both of them at the same time when their turn comes up.

By doing JOT I have been more productive in this week than I have in a very long time!
