It’s March and time to list my quilting goals for the month!
Make progress on a quilt for my daughter. The Star Trek quilt I’m making for my daughter is being done in 12 parts, over the course of a year. The goal for March is to piece half of the large Enterprise block that’s featured in the center of the quilt. The April goal is to piece the other half.
Make a Vintage Reimagined quilt for the March Island Batik challenge. The challenge this month is to be inspired by a vintage quilt to make something new. I have several ideas floating in my head but nothing concrete just yet.
Finish the January Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop challenge—You can read about the challenge here, and why I haven’t gotten it done just yet. My goal here is modest: to finish the top by fusing the appliques in place. If I can get them edge-stitched too that’ll be a plus. If I can also get the quilt quilted I’ll be ecstatic!
Create a new pattern for Timeless Treasures. Timeless Treasures recently selected one of my designs for a free download pattern, so my goal is to get it written and submitted for publishing. The pattern uses fabrics from a Quarter 2 2019 collection, so I hope to be able to show it to you in April.
Finish my pattern for the Partners in Design’s upcoming blog hop, and sew up a test block. My test block is made and my pattern is done! Can’t show you the block though because this is a mystery quilt along. <wink>
The first block will be released this Tuesday at 12:00 AM EST. My block is Block #6 and it’ll be released May 21st.
If you’re participating in the quilt along, come back on Tuesday to see my tips for making Block #1 and to learn where you can download the pattern.
Change the cover of a new pattern being featured by my local guild to show the actual Guild Raffle Quilt, then print it so the Guild can sell it at the show (and before). Got this one done too! The pattern is Belfast Market, and it’s available through my store. If you use code QGI2019 at checkout, I’ll give half the profits to my guild - the Quilter’s Guild of Indianapolis.
You can read all about Belfast Market here.
Announce my new patterns and add them to my online store.I released a new free pattern in early February. The pattern was designed for Timeless Treasures and it features the Beach is My Happy Place fabric collection. You can read all about it here.
So those were my goals for February. Let’s see how I did:
I had 7 goals and got 6 of them done. That’s 86%! Woot!
I’ll be publishing my March goals on Monday. Come back then to see what I’ll be working on in March!
