So goal 1 for February is to quilt and bind this quilt. This is my goal for 'A lovely year of finishes at Sew Bittersweet Designs
I know February is a short month so I'm loathe to set many goals but I would also like to quilt the Star Trek quilt. I haven't yet made the quilt sandwich, in fact I need to buy the backing fabric. Still a girl can dream can't she? So this one is goal 2
I also have to finish this baby quilt. I need it for Wednesday as my colleague is going on maternity leave. She knows she is having a boy. This is goal 3
I have another work colleague going on maternity leave in March. She doesn't know or want to know the sex of her baby. That means her quilt must be gender neutral. I haven't thought of a pattern yet but may use my 'Let's book it' project for that.
'Let's Book it' is hosted by Sharon at Vroomans Quilts. The idea is to make quilty goodness from our quilt books. I only own 3 quilt books and two of them are about different quilting techniques and the third has patterns for large quilts. Right at the moment I don't want to start another large quilt. You can also use patterns that you've saved from magazines or the internet. I have several Snibbles patterns that I haven't made yet so I thought I would start 'Clover'
This would be my 4th goal for the month. I think that will do for goals as any more would be unrealistic. I will have one or two other bits to make. I'm taking part in the rainbow scrap challenge again. This year I am making 4 blocks a month and the block I'm using is churn dash. I have made the blocks for January.
The photo doesn't show the true colours of these blocks but give a rough idea. I find this photo a little strange as the blocks appear to be floating rather than sitting on the coffee table. Anyway the blue blocks for January are done and I've sorted through my scraps for pinks which is February's colour. These blocks finish at 6 inches.
I do have one other goal but this is long term and not a quilting goal. I want to lose weight and my plan is to lose one and a half stone over the year (or quicker). That's a total of 21pounds but it is doable. I'll let you know how it is going.
Now I think I'd better get things organised for work tomorrow. Anything to save time in the morning. Tomorrow I have a free evening so I can get some sewing done. A lovely way to relax at the end of a tiring day.

I hope your weekend went well and you had a little 'me' time.
