Well, it's the end of the month already and I almost forgot to post my One Monthly Goal Finish for March!
My goal was to get the main body of Farm Girl Vintage together....finally!!!....and I'm happy to say that I accomplished it!
I'm really happy with it. I think I will make a goal to have it done in time for the Fair this year. It still needs a pieced border, etc...but the end is in sight.
I've had some extra sewing time. The longarm is not very busy at the moment so I'm taking advantage of the lull.
Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts has been offering a mystery quilt....a new block every day for 15 days. Some days we make as few as 4 of the daily block....the other day we had to make 16. There will be 100 blocks total, which will make a nice lap-sized quilt.
I decided to do mine in 30's prints as I have a lot of them, and I do still love them.
Here is mine after Day 11...
There are some bits I'm not too sure about, but it's staying as it is.
I will name this quilt in some way to remember that it was made during this pandemic :(
And...wouldn't you know it...Bonnie Hunter has started a new mystery quilt to keep us busy during isolation. At first I thought, "no way"...I want to concentrate on my UFOs. But I'm doing it....I haven't participated in her mystery quilts in quite a few years as they usually take place between American Thanksgiving and Christmas....a longarmer's absolute busiest time!
Well, I'm not so busy at the moment, so I'm jumping in on this one!
It's called the Unity Quilt-along and you can find Part One on her blog today, which you can see HERE.
You can have a look at her Intro post HERE to see Bonnie's suggestions about fabrics.
One of my goals during social distancing is to make some sense of the sewing room and get it tidied and organised. I've been saying it for a few days now, and after I finish this post I will actually start. I think one of the things I will do is start a box for donation to the free table at the guilds...I'd like to part with 5 UFOs that I will never get back to doing. I'm sure I can come up with 5.
I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the One Monthly Goal linky party.
