February Goals {ALYoF}

January flew by, but somehow I managed to meet my sewing goal for the month. Now we’re on to February, an already short month. To top it off, QuiltCon is in the middle of the month and there is a TON to do before I head to Austin. I have been debating which project to choose for this month of A Lovely Year of Finishes (ALYoF) and I’ve decided NOT to choose any of my QuiltCon prep projects (just in case I have to abort mission and go to the conference without newly handmade accessories) and instead to choose Maddie’s Rainbow Jellyroll quilt as my goal. All I have left to do is square up the quilt and bind it. Sounds doable, even though I’ll most likely be working on it after I return from QuiltCon.

This quilt is for Maddie, but Max certainly had a grand old time rolling around with it during the photo shoot while Maddie was in preschool.

I like how the quilt lines look on the back WAY more than I thought I would. I was all worried they would look off kilter, but it looks fine to me.

  1. It looks great both on the front and the back! Are you trimming off that selvage when you trim up the sides? Bet that saves some time that way rather than being super fussy about it when piecing.

  2. The backing fabric is so perfect, Kitty! February does seem like it is going to be a challenging month… it’s time for me to seriously dig in and figure out what I need to be ready for QuiltCon (this weekend). 🙂 I bet your helpers super excited about you finishing this one up, too.

  3. This is so cute! I’m glad you got the backing lined up to your liking. 🙂 Gaaaahhh, QuiltCon…I’m glad I’m not the only one who might not be decked out head to toe in handmade! I keep trying to remind myself that that’s okay. It’s not an accessory/garment contest!

  4. Oh man it’s looking fantastic!! 😀 You’re making wonderful progress on it. 🙂 I don’t think I’m going to be traveling handmade this year, even though I really wanted to. Just too many other things going on!
