Success! 17 in 2017 Goal for February!

What a month!  I have met all my goals for the month and it is a good feeling, even with the reformatting and updating of 3 computers!  I am now proficient on the Macintosh and Microsoft Operating Systems.  I know more than a 72-year-old woman wanted to learn at this time in my life in maintaining computers, but look at all the money I can now spend on fabric at the Dallas Show next week-end!  Guess it was worth my time after all.  Now to show you my progress for the month!

Finished preparing 4 A Bountiful Life blocks to appliqué.  The blocks will be 14 1/2″ unfinished.  If I can get them completed by May, I will be half way through the 20 blocks.  FINAL GOAL:  Have this quilt ready to show in the 2018 Quilt Shows.

Completed Section 4 of Stonefields!!!!!!!  This pattern is not difficult other than the pieces are very small.  Mr Rabbit and I had a fun day yesterday.  I would love to have this one completed to show next year also, but time will tell!  Blocks are 6 1/2″ unfinished.

This block was previously finished, but the flowers in the center were too light so I redid it with some of the same fabrics used for the blue leaves.

Margaret Potts is now on schedule (except for the February’s block which was received last week).  I finished 5 blocks this month!  Blocks are 10 1/2″ unfinished.

AND Oh Glory is quilted!  I believe I made this while in Arizona in or around 2013.  It is a Lynette Jennings pattern!  Just need to add the binding.  Think this one will probably replace one of the wall hangings in my Studio now.

Can you believe are already starting March and daylight savings time?  I will be finishing the computer project up (hopefully today) and move on to a new project.  I really do want to work on an RSC 2017 project so maybe now I can take some time and look for a pattern that I really want to do in those colors.  I would like this one to be a “fun” quilt, something that will not be difficult but a little challenging.  Hopefully I can have my March goals selected soon.

Have a great day and enjoy stitching!
