A March Goal

Snowfall in progress

I am stopping in today to make a post my March goal so I can join A Lovely Year of Finishes for this month - today is the last day to do so over with Shanna at Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa at Sew BitterSweet Designs.

Those blocks are for my next Cycles quilt, Snowfall - made from the Oakshott Italy line and a bunch of solids from cotton and linen. I am going to finish this quilt this month as I already have the next quilt in the series in my head. I need three more blocks I think and then I can get started on the matchstick quilting, using my new long arm machine. It should be fun and I cannot wait to see if matchstick quilting on a larger quilt is any easier on the long arm than on my regular machine.

Did you see, I won one of the lovely February prizes in ALYOF, a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. Thank you again to Shanna, Melissa and the Fat Quarter Shop!

This quilt is also on my Q1 Finish Along list, and I guess I should dust off the other projects on that list as the end of the quarter is this month too.

I have had a very busy week at work, but it is Friday now and that is good.
