One Monthly Goal January Accomplished

This month my One Monthly Goal was to finish my Crazy Mom Quilts Focus Block English Paper Pieced table topper. This was also my American Patchwork's UFO of January.
I was able to finish sewing the hexie's together and found a little time at my dad's to quilt it. It's all bound and completed thanks to time at the guild meeting. I'm so excited to be done with this EPP project. It was the last one I had going, so I've gotten started on another one, but haven't made any progress yet.
I was able to attend our guild's SOYO - Sew On Your Own retreat and got most of my FGV quilt together. I have a few spots I need to fix, but I'm so glad to have it in this spot right now.
I spent most of the weekend getting these black and white blocks into a quilt top. It's my oldest UFO and I really wanted it done. The top is done and now I can focus on quilting it next month. This was my Patchwork Times UFO for January and the top stage is more than I expected, so I'm happy with my progress moving it forward.
My daughter got to go to quilt retreat for the first day. It was her birthday and she made two bags.

One Monthly Goal - January

Last year I really struggled to do OMG, so I finally gave up. I didn't really accomplish anything from August-December, so I'm going to try again. I like having the goal. This is my Crazy Mom Quilts Focus block and I am EPPing it. I hope to finish piecing it and get it quilted in January.
