Goals Met

Hello!  Can you believe it is nearly mid-March already?  I have so many plans and ideas but I don't feel like there is enough time in the day or days in the week, etc.!  I did manage my time pretty well this week and managed to get some things done.  I finished a quilt for my sister, Christy.  She really likes it!  I'm so relieved!  I did enjoy making this quilt and I'm pleased that it did not go on into forever.  I have a knack for taking way too long on some projects!  Here is the finished quilt with the specifics below.
I had fun taking it out Sunday morning with my Andy to his work.  I so did not want to take pictures in my drab, brown backyard again.  The industrial equipment was perfect, I think.
The above picture is the back.  I love it!  I should have shaken out the wrinkles though, sorry!  Below is one more just for fun.
Quilt specifics:
Pattern- Coming Home by Camille Roskelley from the book Simplify.
Fabrics - Prints from Tula Pink, Bonnie and Camille, Lecien,  Liz Scott, American Jane, Anna Maria Horner
Anna Griffin and Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton.
Quilted- by me.

Plus, I met my goal for this week!  I joined in on the fun over at Amy's Creative Side with the One Thing, One Week Challenge.  I challenged myself to make 11 Farmer's Wife blocks.  I actually made 12.  I just wanted to keep it all even.  It got me to 50 completed blocks!  And it was fun again.  Once I got going and changed my mind about matchy-matchy the blocks had to be it did become fun again.  I originally started with the intention of only using scraps but somewhere along the way I was trying to make everything match.  That is not going to happen so I just pulled scraps I like and used 'em up.  Here are the blocks I finished.
 I'm linking my finished quilt up to {Sew} Modern Monday and Fabric Tuesday !

And I'll be linking my met goal up to the One Thing, One Week Challenge, too.

Have a good week!  God Bless!
