Quilters Accountibility Week 4

These are the final 3 quilts from my January goal!! That makes 15 Quilts of Valor quilted in January - I am so excited!!
`
This first one is a courthouse steps. It was made by Harriet here in Colorado. She used a Jelly roll - very clever!! I think she said she added some extra fabrics to it as well.
`
Next comes a Quilt from my Mom. She made it this summer ( oops) and I got it done!! I quilted it with swirls and circles!










And the last quilt was made by the Miracles group in Denver. I did the echoed spine quilting again on it. It looks really nice!!
`
For my February Goals I wanted to sew my strings for 15 minutes a day - and of course it is only the 3rd - but whoo hoo - I have done it. I am working on a set of 24 red and white ones. Hope they turn out!
`
Today was one of those days - I had to be at school early, we sewed, at noon I had a child ( he was mine) bonk his head - so we went home. Came back and picked up the other two - went to H.S. Parent teacher conferences, ate dinner ( in the car) and had swim practices (2 kids) and basketball practice ( 1 kid) ... so my only exercise was running to the car and back. Bummer... wish me better luck for tomorrow.

I debated what goals I wanted to set for working on my strings this year but decided daily would be too difficult -- I don't think I could even do daily for a month. So I chose Tuesdays and it's working well for me. I find I'm looking forward to playing in my strings.

Congratulations on the goal of quilting 15 in January -- good thing you have those binding angels.
