OMG for February and things to try with scraps....

A star quilt with no Y seams, which is what scares me.  It actually uses a jelly roll but if you can cut up some of your extra fabric into 2 1/2 inch strips it would be great.  It's from Jordan Fabrics, you have to see their web site, fa-nominal.  

Her free pattern is here.

I would like to try that for this month's OMG but I have more important things at this point.

I am proud to say that I finished my January's goal, and I want to finish at least 10 of the goals I set.  so I need to choose wisely.

So although I am in the middle of another quilt (it's a surprise so you have to wait until the middle of February to see it), my goal this month is to catch up on all of my BOMs.  That means:

You think that's enough?  I can catch up on all of this in February and keep on cleaning my sewing room.  That's another blog entry later this week.  So if I pull this off, I am going to be absolutely amazed with myself, considering I've already started two new habits this month (exercising every morning for 1/2 hour, and swimming every Tuesday) as well as my painting class is on again.

Someone told me I'm acting like I'm retired but with a job.  What do you think???  Taking on too much?  I think so to.  Happy Friday.



  1. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  2. The real question is do you feel happy or harried? If you are happy, dont slow down. If harried, try to pull back until you find balance.A78mandel at yahoo dot com

  3. Hi Annette, plenty going on this past two weeks with me under the gun, but now that a lot is off my plate (3 quilts on a deadline) I’m back to enjoying quilting for the sake of quilting, not on a deadline. So to answer your question, I was harried, but now I’m happy to sew again. Thanks for reading my ravings. ��


Another one done.....
