February Goals

Looking back at my goals set in January, I made a lot of progress!
 As I showed in my post about my OMG finished January goals, I completed 2 of the projects that I had listed. Yay!
I also had time to work on my Chicago Cubs quilt. The pattern for this one is the economy block. In making this block there are lots of points and those points often get pushed down into your machine when starting to sew. So I decided to try what others have been talking about...a leader/ender project. 
Way back in August 2014, I made this baby quilt for my niece's daughter. 
Somehow, I cut way too many squares and they have been stacked on the shelf in my sewing room ever since. So I decided to cut them up and use them for my leader/ender project. 
So in making all the rest of my Chicago Cubs blocks and the alternate baseball blocks, I also finished the leader/ender quilt top.
My goal will be to sandwich and quilt this baby blanket. 
This will probably be a donation quilt.
My Chicago Cubs quilt is also waiting in the flimsy stage. I ordered some backing fabric for it.
Next goal will be to sandwich and quilt it.
Still waiting for some attention is my Sail Away quilt.
I need to decide if I want to piece the back or use one piece. 

My goal will be to move this quilt forward in the next month.
A smaller project that I will work on is a UFO block from 2012. As part of the Wicked Blog Hop I created this spider web block. 
My daughter is interested in it as a Halloween wall hanging. 
I would like to finish it and bring it when we head down to Austin in March.
So my goal for February will be the baby quilt, the Halloween wallhanging and moving my Sail Away quilt forward. 
And as always, keeping up with RSC and the Milky Way QAL. This month's color is sea green and the star is Canopus. Stay tuned!

  1. Some lovely work happening at your place.

  2. Fun quilt top! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  3. Wish you well on a productive month: ) . I've come to the conclusion that leaders and Enders are the answer to getting more done. If you remain faithful to that concept you can't take one thing out unless something else goes in . It takes a little more planning ahead but so worth it ! Have a wonderful weekend! Janita
