February One Monthly Goal and Monthly Plan

Quilting template
Moving into February, I'm not planning to start a new project; but, if there was one that sparked my interest or spoke to my heart, I would! 

Regarding my One Monthly Goal, I had considered finishing Martha's quilt as my goal. Quilting in the ditch on this project was my One Monthly Goal for January. I made great progress on it last month. I even accomplished more than quilting in the ditch! 

While I was quilting the sashing, I decided to quilt a design in each of the blocks. A couple weeks ago, I purchased fabric to bind it. Because I finished quilting this project on Monday and started the binding process yesterday, I will choose another project as my One Monthly Goal. This morning I finished machine stitching the binding and this afternoon, I'll tackle the label. A finish is just around the corner!

This month on the quilting front, I plan to layer and baste one of the flannel quilts I started piecing last March. I plan to quilt the Happy Hearts table runner that I started in a Saturday Workshop last month. I also plan to quilt a small wall hanging that I had thought would be a pillow; but, it wanted to be a wall hanging. That project has been on my finish list a long time!

I plan to continue working on hand embroidery embellishment. I've at least three projects where I'm planning to hand embroider a few stitches. The pillow that wanted to be a wall hanging, the log cabin block and temperature quilt are the projects. I will spend some time working on the embroidery software assignments. Now that the Saturday workshops have been held, perhaps, I will get into Sundays as the day to work on this project! I plan to make a few Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks too!

Make more Frolic blocks

The 2019-2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery--Frolic--is still on my design wall. I have around a dozen blocks left to make. I decided to stitch additional blocks to use the majority of leftover parts as well as make the project bigger. 

I have already stitched 35 full blocks and 17 half blocks. I suppose it would be a good idea to draw a schematic to see just how many more blocks I really need! 

Finished, this project might end up on our bed! I so want to move this project forward! Therefore, completing the blocks will be my One Monthly Goal for February. Fingers crossed that I will have as much success this month as I did last month!

Having just 'one' big monthly goal can help keep it moving forward. I’m looking forward to seeing your finish. said...

Luann, I hope one big monthly goal will keep me moving forward. It is good to have many projects. . .I won't be bored anytime soon!
