February NewFO's and Finishes, and Goal Post for March

(I'm trying to streamline my monthly reports so I don't have an onslaught of similar posts all at once.)


This month, I had one NewFO - a baby quilt for my youngest sister's first kiddo. Entirely from stash, so that's all good. The HST's are organized into columns to be sewn web-style.  


My ButtonNever Too Hot To Stitch!  

My February Finishes make me happy - I tucked away two of the three UFOs on my January Goal Post (Wheelchair Quilt 3 and Hawaiian Etude), and I have maybe 3 hours left of stitching on Amaretto's binding. Bonuses: I finished 5 Valentine minis that came from NewFOs, and I got that design wall made and up!


March Goal Post:  Yep. School focus has really put the slow-down on quilting work, and next week will be wiped out by the conference I'm presenting at. So I think these are realistic expectations:

Amaretto Cottage (UFO): Binding finished, labeled, photo-op

Baby English 1.0 (Gift from Stash): Get this pieced and do the walking-foot portion of quilting for stabilization. Matching bookbag cut out.

Run, Kitty, Run (Gift from Stash): Get this marked (or make golden thread papers), baste it, get the walking foot quilting in for stabilization.

  Affairs of the Heart (UFO): However much handwork I can get done on the conference trip.

You Must Be Croaking (NETY - UFO family) - pull this one from storage for the next NewFO: washed, cut. I need something NOT blue to look at!!


Want some eye candy and inspiration to work on your UFOs and produce some finishes?  Check out the monthly link-up buttons I included above.  :D

I meant to say also that I have one of those Java House patterns - mine's called Infrognito. It just might be my April NewFO.
