It's that time...to set my goal for the ALYOF February goal setting linky party. Last month I did succeed in finishing my quilt.
...for February's ALYOF's goal setting party, I am going to machine applique the letters on this baby quilt, quilt it and bind it. The words have been ready to applique for a few years. I am not sure if I will quilt it on the long arm or do a chenille backing. I shared the chenille backing technique with Mama Spark a few years ago and she did a tutorial for the Moda Bake Shop. The eat.play.sleep.repeat pattern was on the Moda Bake Shop too.
I have made this quilt a few years ago and loved how it turned out.
Other projects I hope to work on this month are:
- Something that has ruffles...I joined Sew We Quilt's blog hop...Think Ruffles. I have a few ideas but I am still in the planning stage.
- I'm making a red and blue string quilt that will be going to the Veteran's Hospital in Ann Arbor MI. Last week I came across a box with some red and blue precut stripes...1" to 3" wide. I have 36 blocks made and trimmed, now I have to decide how big to make the quilt. I think I will make 6 more blocks. The blocks will finish 8". They don't like the quilts to be too big.
- I'm hoping to work on my Michelle Ridgway project...there is a peek on this post.
I took this picture through our library window...
believe me I have seen enough of this white stuff
just wish it would go away!!
