For some reason, I have been struggling to decide on my One Monthly Goal for January. In fact, I can't seem to settle on any quilting goals at all, either for this month or for the whole year. There have been some years in the past where I was very goal oriented with my quilting, posting a list of goals at the beginning of every month and reporting on whether I reached those goals at the end of the month. Listing those goals helped me stay more focused on specific projects instead of playing around with every new idea that comes along (although there definitely needs to be some time to play too!)
This monthly goal needs to be realistic. After completing two quilt tops, I still have a stack of extra Scrappy Trips blocks left from my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project from 2017. I need 3 more green blocks in order to have enough for another throw quilt. My January goal is to make those remaining blocks and get all the blocks joined together. Finally, a decision!

That's the plan for the month ahead--one completed quilt top. I will report back at the end of the month with a progress report and maybe even a new goal for February. I am joining the One Monthly Goal link-up for January at Elm Street Quilts. Check it out to see what others are hoping to get done this month!
