OMG for January completed

I’m happy to say that I got the binding on my Cogs quilt which was my goal for January and makes me eligible to participate in ElmStreet Quilts One Monthly Goal – OMG!
After trimming the extra fabric from the backing I had more than enough to make my binding strips.
Quilted with the Angelica patograph by Patricia E. Ritter.
Some nice clean snow and a little sunshine were helpful in laying this quilt out to get some photos.

So happy to have this quilt complete it’s been sitting here for a while.  Now I have to look to see what I might complete for February, stay tuned.

I, myself, am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.

Starting the New Year with a Goal

I’m back!  I took a big unintentional break from blogging, quilting and goals, as I spent the Fall of 2019 helping my dad and step-mom downsize from their home of 30 plus years to a retirement, assisted-living villa.  Phew and it is done, all except for selling their home.  They are now comfortably in their new place.

I’m ready and excited to get back into ‘my life’ and quilting and finishing projects.  My first goal of 2020 is to put the binding on the last quilt that I quilted back in September.  You’ll recognize my Cogs quilt from my last blog and Facebook post. 

Now just to find the right fabric for the binding, I’m sure it exists in my stash.  Here is another picture of the other side. 
Happy to be participating once again in Elm Street QuiltsOne Monthly Goal (OMG).  It would be nice to have twelve finishes this year.
