OMG January 2016 Finished!

This month has been amazing for my quilting! I've gotten a lot accomplished and many things moved forward. I was able to not only finish the top of the Remington quilt, which was my goal for January for OMG, but I also got it quilted and the binding on it. It turned out great and I think this is probably the quilt I have had the most comments on in a long time!

I also made a couple more essential oils bags for Kelli. They turned out cute. I have a few more to make, but needed to take a break.

Two more essential oils bags done! They don't take long, just the right mindset and following directions correctly. @cre8tivequilter @kell1squilts
I was able to go to the BHQG SOYO and get quite a few tops done. I finished this Case IH quilt. Now I just need to get a backing done so I can quilt it.

Mikaela and I spent some time quilting on the MKJ holiday and I finished putting the binding on, so it's ready to hang for the next month.
Mikaela and I quilted this one together and I put the binding on. A new wall hanging for my office.
I got an unexpected day at my dad's last weekend and was able to quilt this blue hexie quilt for my MIL. I put the binding on it this week, so another finish for the month!
The Blue Hexie quilt is done! Feeling a great sense of accomplishment in completing this one. Made entirely from mom's stash.

I put together this Valentine's day table runner at the SOYO and quilted it last weekend. I put the binding on this week and finished the hand work last night.

I was able to quilt this trip around the world quilt on the holiday and tonight when I changed the bedding, I decided I wanted to put it on the bed. I trimmed it up, put the binding on and stitched it down by machine and it's my last finish for January 2016.
One final finish for January!
I decided to use my new Quilters Planner to track my stash usage this year. I'm more determined than ever to finish up all these UFO's I have laying around. Since it's too hard for me to do it weekly, I'll be posting my stash report monthly.

Happy birthday to Miss M - she's growing up so fast!

What a productive month. I'm always intrigued by the cute bags people make. I have had bad results working on bags and so I've given up on them. But I like to see other people's successes. So cute!
