March ALYOF Goal

I've been stalling on posting my March A Lovely Year of Finishes goal because I was fighting myself on making the logical choice versus what I wanted to do. Since one week of the month is already over, logic won out, and I chose the project I need to finish and most realistically can finish. 

That means you're seeing the same quilt as in yesterday's post: the sunshine and batik chevron quilt for my friend.

It's not that I don't want to finish this...but I like to make my ALYOF goals something beyond what I "have" to get done if I can, because I'll likely get done what I have to regardless and the goal forces me to make more time for sewing. But at the moment finishing this quilt is looking like a good goal, and the sooner I can get it to my friend, the better. My goal is to have the top completed by the end of March. If I can get it quilted as well, that's a bonus!

No matter what I chose as my goal, it was going to be better than my husband's suggestion. He thought that my goal for the month should be to clean up my studio (which needs to be done and has a date on the calendar!), but he suggested that my incentive be that I not do any sewing until it's clean! Can you imagine?!?! 


  1. Haha, sounds like something my husband would say. He likes to joke about the morning I got mad at him when he tried to stop my sewing so I could eat breakfast... but I was on a roll!! :)
    Good luck with your goal!

  2. Well who needs cleaning when it's only gonna be piles again. I have tired to do that as a goal...and well the things you find when you're cleaning. It has driven me to finish that nearly done project...or better yet to start something new before you lose the idea! Bahaha.

    Well you have a lovely lovely goal!

  3. Ha, your husband is a funny man! He knows you don't listen to him right? Funnily enough, sometimes I can't do any sewing because my room isn't tidy enough to work in, either realistically or in my mind I just can't settle because there is too much c$@p on the flat surfaces. I like your quilt. Did you decide to put the alternate block in the top right corner? I really liked that idea in your last post.
