One of my quilting goals for 2021 is to finish more of my UFOs, and I plan to start that process this month. I'm linking up with One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts to share my current project.
My OMG for February is to finish the quilting on my Sister's Choice quilt. This quilt dates back to the summer of 2013 when I made a pile of blue and yellow 9-patch blocks. Some of the blocks were joined together into a cute baby quilt (which is still unquilted!), and the rest of the blocks sat around in my sewing room until 2018. That is when I added the blue triangles to turn them into Sister's Choice blocks. I decided to try putting them together using quilt-as-you-go methods. I stitched blocks, sashing, and border segments into rows, then quilted each row before joining the rows together. The photo below shows 3/4 of the quilt--there is another row of blocks plus border to be added to the bottom.
All of the quilting of the blocks has been done, but most of the border quilting is unfinished. It would have been easier if I had done that quilting before joining the rows together, but I must have been too eager to see if my QAYG technique was going to work.
My goal for February is to finish quilting the borders, then get the last row of blocks attached to the quilt. Getting the binding finished too would be a wonderful bonus!

Happy quilting everyone!

You've got this, Julie!!ReplyDelete
I don't remember this one. Blue and yellow is such a classic color combo, and it works well in this project. Good luck this this month's OMG.ReplyDelete
