January in Review

A bitterly cold month in Minnesota proved to be a good month for quilting as I finished 9 UFOs in January. A quilt to donate to QOV, 3 kids quilts for Project Linus, a wall quilt, 2 lap quilts and 2 table toppers to be exact!

1. Patriotic Squares, 2. Minnesota Ladyslipper, 3. Sports Kid, 4. Shabby Heart, 5. Shabby Roses, 6. Animal Pairs, 7. Ballerina Cats, 8. Leoni's Floral Stars, 9. I Heart Pink

A review of my January goals looks like this:

1-Finish Stretched Stars Table Runner-DONE
2-Finish Christmas Stockings 2,3 & 4
3-Bind Shabby Florals Lap Quilt-DONE
4-Bind Shabby Heart Lap Quilt-DONE
5-Bind Minnesota Ladyslipper Wall Quilt-DONE
6-Finish 2 Project Linus Quilts -DONE
7-Finish Valentine’s Day Table Runner-DONE
8-Finish Craftsy FMQ Class-DONE
9-Do 10 FMQ Practice Sessions (1/2 hr)-7 DONE
10-FMQ 1 Project Linus Top

I'll be moving those Christmas Stockings forward and I have a new plan for continuing my FMQ practice in February but I'll post about those goals tomorrow. I'll also have a separate post about my last 2 finishes. Too much going on right now! Plus, my Juki F600 arrived yesterday and I haven't even taken her out of the box - now that is just plain WRONG my friends! ;-)

  1. Give yourself a huge pat on the back! These all look great.

  2. Wow, great job. Everything is beautiful and you did a great job!

  3. I think you finished up so much just to make me look bad. LOL! Seriously that is wonderful, amazing and even super human. Good for you! And your quilts are beautiful! I see your UFO countdown on your side bar and now I understand why you are so motivated to get so much done. You are doing great.

  4. Oh my gosh! NINE!!?? Man... my January recap is scheduled to post tomorrow and here I thought I was pure awesomeness because I managed to complete {start to finish} like seven SMALL projects. lol

  5. You go girl! you sure did accomplish a lot this month. Congrats on all your finishes. Now go play with your new machine!

  6. Yes, you did really good this month. And all the projects look great too! don't you love that successful feeling!

  7. Wow!!! That's a lot of finishes! Congratulations!

  8. Wow - great job this month! I might steal your idea of having FMQ practice sessions as one of my March goals (since I've already written up 6 goals for February).

  9. GASP! Congrats on all the finishes! Well done! I hope to have some finishes at the end of February.

  10. Congratulations on all those finishes! That's amazing!
