March 2017 One Monthly Goal and UFO

Psst   Psst  ... Did you know today was March 1st????

That means I was supposed to have sat with my calendar and gotten the month all planned out, and had a few dinners planned.... and Looked for my One Monthly Goal......


I'm ready now!   Welcome to the First of March!!!

This is my OMG/UFO for the month -
First - it needs to be pressed - really really good
Second - It needs a back. I saved all the scraps so I want to use them in the backing
Third - it needs to be Quilted
Fourth ( the scary part) it must be bound.....






This quilt is called Tortilla Strips
It is an Atkinson Design Pattern
It is about 60ish by 80ish   - You can see I really don't want to commit right?? ha


Wish me luck.....

I can't decide if I should say...
Binding? You got this, girl.
Or...
You had me until binding. Good luck! (You're gonna need it!)
And totally kidding. You got this, girl.

Good luck! Do you have a plan for the back?

Sherrill said...

HEY! It's practically done already!! Doesn't sound like it'll take much (after you've planned a few dinners) to get r dun!!

What a fun design! I really like the stripes and plaid fabrics mixed in! I have a feeling your going to have this one finished by the end of the month...

Can't wait to see how you quilt it, with all that nice space to show off your quilting! And once you get that far, you might as well just go ahead and bind it and meet your OMG, right? You go, girl!

It's cute! I'm sure it will be fine. The hard part for me would be the backing. Maybe save the scraps for something else? Good luck!

Rhonda said...

Ahh, no worries. You'll get this one finished. What a great pattern!

I really like this one as well! I've added it to my list. Can't wait to see how you finish it.

Agree with you. I finding the binding difficult/frustrating as well. Love this project.
