Januarys One Monthly Goal - Sapphire Stars

I am going to say..... Success!!!!


My One Monthly Goal  was to get my Sapphire Stars ( aka KTQ) Into a top!!! and if I was overly ambitious - quilted!!

I was not ambitious - as of today.... but!!

Here is my finished Top!!



and holee cow - Mine ended up almost 100 Inches long!
That I was not prepared for!! I  needed a bigger room!!

The backing is made, 
the Quilt is Pinned and ready to go on the Longarm

The desire is there.....

but now I get to choose a February goal - yay!!!

I finished my Sapphire Stars top and just ordered backing. I, too, was surprised at the size. I finished off the borders differently (see my blog). I have to figure out how to quilt it yet.

Your version of Sapphire Stars turned out beautifully! Congrats on getting your OMG done just a bit early. Happy stitching this weekend. Hope you can find time to finish the quilting.

This is one unusual quilt, and the colors are combined so uniquely!

Vicki in MN said...

That is a mighty fine goal to have accomplished! I like the big spikey stars.

Stephanie D said...

Beautiful, unique quilt! Can't wait to see it all quilted up! Congrats on finishing early!

Rebecca Grace said...

Your Sapphire Stars quilt is really beautiful. Congratulations! I might have to investigate this One Monthly Goal thing you're doing. I've ignored it for awhile thinking "that's all I need -- to set goals I won't reach, so I can feel guilty about them!!"

Hi,
Awesome job! Love the quilt, so pretty and colorful.
Have a great day!

Christine said...

It turned out great. Mine is a top too and waiting to be quilted. Mine turned out long too. Can't wait for your next mystery 😊

It's a beautiful quilt, congratulation on finishing it! Easy to find the next month goal ;)

Good for you!

Quilter Kathy said...

Way to go! It's fabulous! I must get mine out and get to work on the borders!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Patty said...

Very beautiful! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

Congratulations on your success. Love the pale blue centres of the stars. It really makes them pop.

Lynette said...

Way to go!!!! I just barely finished sewing on the label for my Sapphire Stars. It really is quite long, but it was so perfect for me to use for QOV for my father-in-law. I wasn't going to do any QALs last year, but when I saw Kevin announce his, I knew he'd do something I could use for that purpose. Love your fabrics in this.

Hi Alycia,
What a beautiful job you did on this quilt! I am partial to stars but I love your fabrics and that piano key border just looks great. Congrats on your January OMG finish. ~smile~ Roseanne

Love the Sapphire Stars. BUT, hold on a minute! January isn't over for another 5 days. Getter done, getter done. No cheating!

(If it makes you feel better, my sewing machine doesn't even know my name anymore.)

June D said...

Amazing! Glad I got to see!

Susan said...

Congratulations on another beautiful finish! I like the way you did the top and bottom borders. That goes so well with the piano keys.

Sandra Walker said...

Yay for a beautiful finish, and thank you for linking up to TGIFF! Now to OMG February!

Cathy said...

Congrats on goal completion! It's stunning!

I like the changes that you made to Kevin's design. I really need to get back to piecing my version!! It's all over my sewing table and I'm feeling a little cramped (and a little like I've let Kevin down by not finishing the Mystery.)

Dar said...

Your Sapphire Stars is beautiful. I like that you changed some of the colors in the design. You will probably get yours finished before me and I had my top done since our reveal.

Lady Fi said...

It's so blue-tiful!

ShowMeTheQuilts said...

Looks amazing! Congratulations on meeting your goal. I knew you could do it. Can't wait to see the next project.

Snowcatcher said...

Wow! What a beauty! I wonder if I could create something so attractive with the seven boxes of scraps I've been collecting for three years now...
