March Goals

It is now March 3rd and I am just getting to set my goals. February proved to be a busy month and looking forward into March, it will also be a short month as we head down to Texas to spend time with our daughters and son-in-love.  
I also became aware of some quilts that I must get for my niece's baby shower in April and a wedding quilt. 
So my goals for March will put a few things on the back burner like my Sail Away quilt and my Go Cubs Go! quilt. I will complete my leader ender baby quilt for donation. This quilt has a little bit more quilting and the binding to be completed. 
For my niece's baby quilt the theme is elephants in greige (a new neutral color. Have your heard of it?) I am making the elephants from the pattern Elephant Parade by Sew Fresh Quilts. This was from a quilt along that Lorna did in 2015. I choose this pattern because not only are her patterns cute, Lorna does an incredible job at clear and easy to follow instructions.  I recently did her quilt along Modern Bear Paw and I loved it! 
My goal is to complete piecing the top of this quilt.
I also purchased fabrics for the wedding quilt. The colors are plum with silver and a touch of green. 
I choose Kona silver for the background and several Kona purples and one American made brand and 2 Grunge, a Tula Pink print and a green from my stash. I haven't quite figured out what pattern to use yet. It needs a modern feel and I'm leaning towards a hashtag quilt. I don't have a specific deadline for this quilt as the couple was married in October at Disney World. We weren't invited (only immediate family) but it is for my close friend's oldest son and his new bride. In March, I will finalize my decision as to the pattern and start cutting out this quilt. 
As always, I will continue to keep up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and the Milky Way QAL. This month's color is red!
I am linking up my goals at OMG-March goals at Elms Street Quilts.

I hope to be better at giving my March goals update at the end of this month. In the meantime...Happy Quilting!
