January One Monthly Goal

January 10, 2016

I was very excited to see the new One Monthly Goal link up hosted by Red Letter Quilts.  I enjoyed participating in the 2015 Finish Along, and am currently working on my goal list for the first quarter of 2016.  One Monthly Goal caught my attention because I sometimes (ok-frequently) get distracted, and I am hoping that this helps me to focus on completing at least one project each month.

For the first month I am going to focus on one of my oldest WIP.  The only reason I’m not calling a UFO is that I have had brief moments of progress on it over the last few months.  Please meet my bauble quilt:

Baubles: Quilted and waiting for thread tails to be buried and trimmed

This project started in November 2014 when I made the blocks, and in December 2015 I did all over free motion longarm quilting on this quilt.  I’m in love with it!Baubles Blocks

It has been squared up, and I buried the threads tonight.  The only things left to do are adding binding and embroidering “hanging string” lines for the baubles.

    Love that quilt. Are the baubles paper pieced. Can’t wait to see a photo of the whole quilt. The quilting looks awesome.

    I can see why you love it! The effect of those lovely baubles on the pristine white, and the really fabulous quilting is amazing. Do make sure you post a photo of the finished thing!
