December Goal

     I'm not sure what happened to November but here we are at December and it's time to link up a goal for the month.  This months pick was a pretty easy one for me.  I need to get some free motion quilting practise in so I'm going to quilt this one.



     The quilt is folded on the top.  It's the toddler sized version of the Celestial Quilt from Modern Plus Signs Quilts by Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander.  I found the backing fabric at our local Len's Mill store and lucky for me there was only enough there to back this quilt.  If you finish the bolt you get 15% off.  Whoo hoo!

     While we are on the subject of Modern Plus Signs Quilts, I did finish my November goal of finishing the first section of the Modern Plus Sign Quilt Along.  I finished it on December 2nd, too late for the link up but I'm smiling.  I'll keep plugging along and maybe catch up by January or February.



     I'm linking up with Patty of Elm Street Quilts for the December One Monthly Goal linkup and I'm also linking up to Let's Bee Social over at Lorna's blog.

Your blocks for the Modern Plus Sampler look great and the backing for the baby quilt is perfect. I hope that you enjoy the FMQing this month!

That backing is a great match! I'm off to Lens in Woodstock today.

I love that backing and the soft pink makes such a great background fabric. It will be fun to see how you quilt it up. It looks like you are positively having much fun making all these plus sign quilts :P

As long as you are smiling :-) everything else will be fine. Can February March? No, but April May. Just a little something to keep you smiling into the new year as you tackle your goals.

Hi Lisa! I love the fabrics you chose for your Plus Signs quilt, and that backing! It is just perfect for it. I look forward to seeing how you are going to quilt this. I just finished a generous lap size plus sign quilt for a Christmas gift, but I always am collecting quilting ideas! Your second Plus blocks are so pretty - I love that turquoise/teal fabric. Happy Happy Wednesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
