March OMG Goal

March is going to go by so quickly. The first week was just crazy and I'm sure it won't slow down much.
My goal for March is to get my yellow and blue scrappy trip around the world into a quilt top. I've made a lot of the blocks and have about 14 more strata sets left to make and about 20 blocks that are cut, but need to be ripped and sewn. Hopefully, I'll be able to get this top done. It's my UFO for Judy's challenge, so this gives me a reason to keep on pushing forward.

UFO February Progress

February was so busy! I feel like I was going full speed ahead all month. I did get a lot of sewing and quilting time in, so I'm not complaining. I've been working on both the APQ and Judy at Patchwork Times UFO challenges. In February APQ picked #9, my Scrappy Trip Around the World. I made the top in 2016, but it wasn't as big as I liked, so I needed 26 more blocks. I finished 2 blocks and got 10 more strata sets made and cut. I am currently ripping them and getting ready to sew more blocks. I'm proud of this progress because I had a lot of deadlines and worked on a lot of other projects, but I did make a concentrated effort to make some blocks.


My UFO # 1 for Judy's challenge was Sprinkles, which is a Jaybird Quilt pattern. I was able to finish the 2nd half of these triangles. They will then be made into half hexies. This was one I started at the end of last year, so it's not a long time UFO. I just decided it wouldn't be a class, so it's been on the back burner. It's moved forward, so to me, that's a good feeling.
