February challenge

I'm determined to finish some WIP's this year and to make time to sew.  I'm joining in for the first time ever, A lovely Year of Finishes at Bittersweet and Fiber of all Sorts and Just Three at Traceyjay Quilts.
I'm crossing fingers and toes that it will give me an incentive to manage my time a little better and push me to finish at least one thing each month.

1.  Finish South Pacific Stars,  a Thimble Blossoms pattern, Hopscotch.
Hopscotch quilt top finished.
 I'm half way through quilting it.

2. Square up the starflowers to use as a quilt centre panel.

3.  Make one BOM block.
I started the Amitie Circle Game BOM in 2011, so far I think I've made 4 or 5 blocks. I'm determined to do at least one block this month.

  10. I'm so happy you're doing the Lovely Year of Finishes too! And I ADORE your Stars quilt. Absolutely adore it. If you are totally sick of it by the time you're done, I'm hoping you still have my address and can send it on it's way to it's new, loving home. :)

  12. Those stars look almost as pretty in the picture as they do in RL.

    Hopscotch is looking good...half quilted is a damn sight better than rolled up in the sewing room.

    Good luck with those goals my friend.
