A Lovely Year of Finishes – February Goal Setting Party

I can’t believe it is already February 1st, how did that happen? The year is already 8.3% over and it just started!  In January alone this amazing group of stitchers had over 120 finishes! Can you believe that?!?  I was just so proud to have finished my first quilt of the year and I can’t wait to move on to my next project for 2013.  This one is not an entire quilt and I won’t even find out what the finished top will look like until almost the end of the year.  I will be working on the next row for my Strip Quilting Group.

My partner in crime, Shanna, made the top row and the queen for this particular quilt is Brookquilt (Shelley) and her theme is “Do Strippers Make More When They Ovulate?” Shelley made the bottom row. Now I already know that Shelley loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics so I will be pulling from my stash. The requirements for this particular quilt are that we use Kona Black (provided) and bright saucy colors. Here are the fabrics I will be pulling from:

I’m not sure why but the colors are a bit off in the picture, sorry about that.  My drop deadline date is February 28th, so wish me luck that I can have this done. I will also be working on several other bee blocks for Bee Awesome (the last month) and Do.Good Stitches Trust Circle. If I’m feeling really scrappy I would like to get borders on my Sew Intertwined quilt and get it basted…but we’ll see about that.

So what do you have planned for February?!?

Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the linky party below.

    That strip quilt is fantastic! Do you make a pattern, or is it just for the group? So beautiful with the Kona black, makes the colours shine.
