Fresh Sewing Day

March 1st is here already! Time to review those monthly goals. This is what I wanted to accomplish in February:

1. I would like to quilt 3 QOVs. I have 9 tops currently at my house to be quilted. Done! in fact, I got all 9 quilted and returned before leaving on my trip.

2. I would like to finish the Metropolitan Fair Churn Dash quilt. Not done.

3. I want to get my Goose in the Pond swap blocks finished for my local guild. Not even started.

4. I would like to make 12 more sawtooth star blocks. Done! I actually finished 15.

5. I would like to complete the February SQT challenge quilt.Not done. However, I did finish my tiny tumbler quilt so I am happy with that. The SQT challenge this month was actually for a tote bag and while it was a great pattern, I don’t need another bag!

I also completed a little doggie quilt and got started on the quilting of my vintage 30s Carpenter Star Quilt.

So all in, not a bad month for sewing. Here are a few of my favorite sewing finishes for the month.

The tiny tumbler is my favorite! And some of you asked the size. The tumblers finish at 1 1/4 inch high!

I’ve been looking forward to this trip so long that I haven’t thought much about March. But here is a short list of things I want to get done.

1. Goose in the Pond swap blocks have to be at the top of the list.

2. Finish quilting the Carpenters Star quilt.

3. 12 more Sawtooth Star blocks.

4. SQT challenge.

I’ll call that good for now. Getting back late tomorrow night means I will be playing catchup at home for the first week of March anyway!

Linking up with Lily’s Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day.

    I’d say, “well done”, Katy! Congrats on quilting all nine QoVs. That in itself is awesome! And I love that star quilt.

  2. That is a very satisfying review! And it’s always nice to reflect and enjoy the ‘extras’ that weren’t planned but found their way into the months achievements!
    Have a safe journey home!

    I can’t wait to see your Goose in the Pond blocks. It’s always been a favorite of mine. I thought about using that to make a quilt after I made my first, but it was too intimidating for my second quilt – not to mention back in the day before rotary cutters, etc. now I have experience that I think I ought to give it a try.
