One Monthly Goal

I have decided to participate in Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal
I would usually set my goal as something outrageous like " baste and quilt 8 quilts "

This month i am going to try something more sensible. 
To quilt and bind my Tulip quilt.
I may even surprise myself.

Planning for 2019

2019 Planning Party

Here is my list for 2019.
I need to plan a timeline.
I will see how many photos there are to upload of finished projects and how many blogposts that will be.
I also need to update my number of finished projects. 

For my quilting list, i have all the backings selected,  the battings cut and the bindings made.
One top is basted and i will start basting the others today.
I have a timeline of 3 weeks before i switch to the Jinny Beyer quilt. 
I want that one finished by March 10th.

I am participating in a link up hosted by Quiltingjetgirl
