Quilting Goals -- January Accomplishments and February Goals

Judy Laquidara at Patchworktimes has a project for 2013 that is GETTING IT DONE.  Each month you list 3 or 4 things you want to accomplish for the month that are quilt related.  It isn't necessarily to finish the quilt but could be to move the project along. 

Of my January Goals
1. The challenge quilt didn't progress. I've been stumped for an idea of what to make although I think I finally have an executable idea as of the 31st. NOthing like waiting til the last minute.

2. Prepare the 5 blocks from the Christmas A-Z quilt that I have traced so that I have a pocket project. These did get prepared and 4 of the blocks were had the applique finished by the end of the month. The 5th block had the letter and half the bow completed by the end of the month.

3. Finish Cabin in the Woods. Its not finished but I did finally figure out the cirtters and get them appliqued onto the quilt. Its unusual to see an eagle here so I used a hawk instead and replace the canoe, moose and deer with a squirrel, possum and racoon all of which I see around the house.

4. Get the months assignment done for the Christmas club quilt. not done. Good thing I have until the 3rd Saturday of February to do this.

Of the bonus stuff, the blocks are appliqued and I've got a selection of fabric for Common Bride. Need to wash some of the pieces that came from Mom's stash as she hadn't washed everything before putting it away.

So for February
1.Guild Challenge quilt -- needs to be ready to hand in at the March 7th meeting

2. Finish Cabin in the woods for the guild show. Entries are due Feb 7th so I need to figure out what I'm commiting to finishing by April 15 (a few days before the show)

3. Christmas club quilt -- get that background made

4. Prepare either the first block of Common Bride or another Christmas A-Z block for my purse.
