OMG: March Goal Completed!

My March OMG was to finish my mom and grandma's Wall Quilt Guild Friendship quilts and donate them back to the guild at their Quilting Weekend. I was successful! It came down to the wire, but I got them both done. I think my mom would be happy they are both made into quilts.
Mom's friendship quilt is done! Two finishes this week and lots of blocks.
After quilting at dad's I got this picture. I spent one afternoon out there quilting them both up.
Quilted Grandma's friendship quilt today. March goals are staying on track.
Mikaela and I went to the Bed Turning with my Aunt Jane and my dad's wife Ann. Mikaela took her own quilts to show and talk about. She was so adorable.

I've been participating in a bi-weekly Farm Girl Vintage BOW and this is the first block, Simple Star
My first block for the Farm Girl Vintage quilt is done. I used my SDSU Jacks colors since they are playing in the Summit League finals tonight.
Two weeks ago was Milking Pail. I like the pace of this and so far have been keeping up.
Farm Girl Vintage Milking pail block done for week 2 of our quilt along.
I made this Loralie Quilts quilt to use up mom's stash. I think it will go to my friend who's had a lot of health issues in the past year. She was also a friend of my moms.
I've been busily making scrappy trip around the world blocks. I'm planning to teach a class in June. I just love making these. The technique is so awesome and they use up a lot of stash scraps.
My first two blocks of the scrappy trip around the world are done. I also sewed up 8 more strata sets, worked on pink/brown cowgirl blocks,  and made two bindings.  It was a productive night!
Extremely productive night at club sew. Three Trip Around the World blocks,  the start of Farm Girl Vintage block, 80 or so starts to X blocks, and 6 strips of cowgirl coin.
More Trip around the world blocks.  Seven more in the last week.Four more trip around the world blocks done last night, bring my total to 19 so far.

Our Family at Easter. We're celebrating the life of my husband's grandpa this week, so a new suit was in order and the kids got new outfits as well, so we were really dressed up for mass on Easter Sunday morning. I got a new dress for our graduation next month, but it will work for all three events.

It is so special that you could finish both your mom's and grandmother's quilts and give them back to their guild. A wonderful memory for you and for their guild friends.

Nice job on completing your Mom and Grandmother's sampler quilts. I also love the one you made for one of your Mom's friends.

I've enjoying reading some of your older posts, and I'll be bad soon to read more.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
