Just under the wire !!! February One Monthly Goal

(SIGH) .......OK ....... so here we are a month later and so much for my big plan to participate in the January "One Monthly Goal" by Elm Street Quilts. I was all"I plan to spend just 10 - 20 minutes a day sewing" blah blah blah .  OK .... so that didn't happen .   Let's just move on to this month's "One Monthly Goal" challenge ...... which I signed up for at the last possible minute ...... well I signed up with just 2 hours left until the deadline ( thus the title of this blog post )

ANYWAY ....... this is my February  goal.  This is a baby quilt I started about 2 years ago for my niece's baby ( who is now 15 months old).

I finished up all the applique ......

and now my goal is to get it basted , quilted, and get the binding on and send this quilt off to my niece and her baby girl before that baby girl is old enough to go to college !!!!!  OK ...... so maybe basting, quilting AND binding is biting off way more than I can chew for a one month goal ........ so lets just go with getting this thing basted  ....... anything else that gets done from now until the end of February will be icing on the cake !!!   I better get moving ...... February is a short month !!!!   Here's the link Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal February
