OMG--March



Last month I participated in Red Letter Quilt's OMG Linky Party and had great success.  My goal was to make a Mini Swoon Quilt and I did.

Read more about my Mini Swoon here.
So this month I thought I would give myself a kick in the pants and participate again.  Actually the end of this month scares me a bit.  Back in January, I set a few goals for myself publicly (thank you my blog) and the end of March I should be checking back in to see how things are going.  Some are going great and others...ehhhh.  My OMG goal will at least put me a step in the right direction with my long term goal of finishing a UFO a quarter.  This month I will tackle my Labyrinth Quilt done in batiks.  It's a smaller quilt measuring around 56 inches.


I think this one managed to fall by the wayside over the years, because every time I set down to plan its quilting, I get overwhelmed by all the possibilities, chicken out, and fold it neatly and put it back in the pile.  That will not happen this month.  NO! It will be finished.

So the other evening I pulled out my trusty markers and plexiglas and tried a few things out.



Will any of these designs make the cut?  Honestly, I'm not quite sure yet.  The quilt is trying to talk to me but I haven't quite deciphered what it's saying.  I have backing fabric, batting and my threads have been picked out.



Now all I have to do is finish the December Aurifil mini Winter Stars by Celine Perkins and I will be on my way with Labyrinth.


Hopefully, if you check back in within the next week, I can show you all the fun I had with this little guy.  With my daughter's archery tournament being in town this weekend, I'm not sure how much stitching will actually take place, so it may be a bit longer till I'm finished.  But I promise you will love it.

Today I'm posting my commitment to my goal over at Red Letter Quilts March OMG Linky Party.  What better way to celebrate goals and finishes than with friends?  Hop over and join the party.

I love your idea for the middle of the star! Positive thoughts sent your way, the quilt top will speak to you and it will flow. I can't wait to see the finished product!

I know you can get it done. Looks like you already have a good grasp on the quilting of it.

Good luck. I need to get some plexiglass. Where did you get the pattern? I really like it.

Those designs for the quilting of your Labyrinth Quilt all look fabulous, Tish. I can't wait to see what you finally decide. And your Winter Stars is so pretty.... And so close to a finish! Hope you have a wonderful weekend at the tournament. Time spent with family is also important!

Ooh, I am liking seeing the progress you've made on the December Mini!! It's looking amazing. No surprise there. Well, hope, make that KNOW we will cheer each other on as we did with the Swoon Mini to get our OMG done and dusted! What you have planned on plexiglass is lovely; I especially like the Kathleen's magic shape (think that's what it's called) with feathers.
