Well with one day to go I finished my January goals. There were two of them. The first was to finish the first block of the hand pieced quilt along and here it is. I haven't pressed it yet so it's kind of standing up on the cutting mat.
I took it along with me to work today and worked on it on my lunch break. One of my co workers asked me why I would want to make a quilt by hand. I have to say that it was a great little project to take along with me. It was way too cold to go out for a walk on my break but I was able to take my thoughts for a nice break from work. Kind of like meditation. So portability and the relaxation of hand work are two good reasons to piece by hand.
When I posted about this project on Sunday I got a few positive comments on the fabric. It's left over fabric designed by Libs Elliot. I have a rainbow of these leftovers and I'm having fun working with them.
The second part of my goal was to get the rest of the cutting done for the Modern Plus Signs quilt along. I managed to do this as well.
It doesn't look like much but it's all the cutting for the rest of the quilt. Now that my machine is back in the house I might get to work on the piecing. I think it will go quickly without having to cut for each of the sections. Now all I need is time at the machine. I'll be heading over to Elm Street Quilts to the link ups for the Hand pieced quilt Along and the One Monthly Goal link up.
