March Plan and One Monthly Goal (OMG)

Four bag projects to make and a wall hanging to finish
I don't know where January and February disappeared; but, now it is March! I've put some thought in my plan for the month. I completed most of my February plan and I'd like to repeat that success in March!

This is the last month of the first quarter. In reviewing my goals for the quarter, I have had a plan to make some bags for more quarters than I remember. It is time to make progress on that project. 

Quilt this flannel project--my OMG
1. I plan to stitch three camel back bags and one selvage fabric bag. The selvage bag is going to be of my own design! Surely stitching one bag a week is doable, so this is the first item on my March list.

2.  Quilt one of the flannel quilts that I pinned last month. I'm making this my one monthly goal. I pieced this top out of Martha's scraps at the beginning of the pandemic. It felt good to be piecing without having a plan. It felt good to be using up the flannel scrap bag that kept spilling its contents! It will feel great when it is quilted!

3. Finish a piece of embroidery into a small wall hanging. Last month, I quilted it. I've a binding, sleeve and label to add before it is a finish.

4. Finish a second piece of embroidery into a small wall hanging. I think it could become a nice wall hanging to represent Spring as well as be the project inspired by our book club's latest book. It's been hanging about my studio for years.

5.-8. Continue progress on various on going projects. Number five is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Each month we make a block or a few blocks or series of blocks in the monthly color. This month the color is green! I'm enjoying participating in the challenge. People post the most interesting projects on the Saturday link up where I'm inspired over and over again. 

Number six is to continue piecing my Temperature quilt. I've managed to keep pace and have completed the first two months of the year. Number seven is to work on the embroidery software lessons. 

Number eight is to continue progress on Frolic. Now that I have finished stitching the blocks; it is time to make a plan for the borders. I want to be able to put this quilt either on a king bed or a California king bed.

Terry, you certainly are moving forward on your projects. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do for the green challenge. said...

Thank you, Luann. I plan to sort for green strings tomorrow. . . Perhaps, I'll even stitch a few blocks before the day ends!

Those embroidered wall hangings look like fun projects! And the flannel quilt from Martha' scraps is just wonderful. Good luck with your March goals! said...

Thanks, Rebecca. I'm most looking forward to making the bags. . .just for a change of pace!
