Januarys UFO and One Monthly Goal Challenge

I am doing it!! I am jumping in!!! I am ready..... until 5pm tonite I am sure - but this morning!! I am pumped up - ready to go, go for the win ( ok the finish!!)

This is my January Project!

This Block!!! It is the Chimney Sweep Block and I am in love with it! I wanted to use 2 1/2 inch strips though and EVERY pattern I found was for bigger strips!! What is a girl to do?

I wrote my own!! and it is here - if you want to attempt it   Quiltygirl's Craftsy Site   ( It's free)


My Mission - should I choose to accept it!!!  Finish making the WHOLE TWELVE Blocks

And!!

Make a Quilt - I mean for real - set them, quilt it.... and the kicker.... Bind it!!

If I get to the binding you can bet there will be a reward of some kind.... A day in the mountains?  A hike someplace?  Or Wrangler Man cleans the kitchen?  hmmmmm what shall it be!!




To push me forward I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts' One Monthly Goal Challenge

AND                                     PatchworkTimes UFO Challenge

Cute block! I can see this one used in an autograph quilt, with swaps from friends or guild members! Good luck!

Good luck! When you get to the binding - and actually finish the binding - I'll be cheering big time for you! All the best in 2017 - Happy New Year!

LOVE those green Chimney Sweep blocks!! Best of luck turning them into a completed quilt.

Hi! I have always liked this block. Maybe you could make this your Thankful Quilt and write in people or experiences for which you are thankful. I am leaning toward making this in blues someday.

I have started a quilt using this pattern. It is a friendship quilt. Before we moved from IL to AL, I asked people at our church to sign the center using colored ink instead of embroidery. Actually I think I will be able to make 3 quilts. The first one is being done with 1930's prints.

I'm thinking Wrangler Man cleans the kitchen. That would be a real prize! =) What a gorgeous quilt it will be - love the greens. Thanks for the pattern. I have tons of left over 2.5" strips for a scrappy version.

Can't imagine how I've not seen this block before. Yours look so good, I think they might be the answer to a gender neutral quilt I need to make. Thanks for sharing your work.
