This is my second time linking to OMG , (Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal February Linkup. )this year, thanks for the motivation Patty! I was able to complete my January goal so I am going to join in again this month.
My project this month is a "new" quilt project for me that I have had sitting in a "to-do pile" as fabric I pulled from my stash and the pattern for (I think) 3 years!! It is a Primitive Gatherings pattern that my friend and I found and adored the sample hanging in their booth at a quilt show. It's called Colfax County:
My friend Cheryl is also making this quilt using the same background fabric as I am but different blues...the prep has taken us each about two weeks- so much cutting- I am not sure how many hundreds of pieces I have cut to make this quilt!! We are trying to urge each other on with encouragement that we will get this finished :) The hst's are 1" finished. Yes, they are...and, yes, there are a lot of them! Glad to have those little sweeties finished!!
Lots of background pieces cut too...
My goal for this month is to sew the triangle components for this quilt, I need close to 700 of this completed unit.
Those of you who know me well are aware I rarely sew with blue so my stash dive for this quilt went quite deep...that blue star print is a Marcus Bros. from... wait for it...1987!
