One Monthly Goal - March 2017

This is my third time linking to OMG 
this year, thanks for the motivation Patty!  I was able to complete my January and my February goals so I am going to join in again this month.

My project this month is a continuation of a quilt project for me called Colfax County:


 

My next step is to make star blocks as I now have the triangle pieces finished from last month's goal.  I would like to declare my goal for this month to complete 12 of the 24 needed star blocks. 

Here is my first star, finished.  I am loving the variety in the hues and prints of the blues:

This will be an ambitious goal for me as my son's Spring Break falls in March and the mild weather has me out and about more than usual for this time of year...and, yes, those are 1" finished hst's.
