February OMG and Challenges/Wednesday WIP

For my February OMG I planned to focus on finishing the Grandma’s Sewing Basket table topper. How did I do?


I added a Monthly Sewing/Quilting Challenge in February. These were additional sewing items I wanted to work on/complete during the month. How did I do?

My February Challenges:

      1. Continue hand quilting on the Cabin Fever baby quilt and maybe finish it? No finish
      2. Finish the passport cases for our cruise. Just 2 more to go. Done
      3. Start piecing Rhubarb Crisp table topper. Done, and sandwiched!
      4. Start the 6 Roman Shades I am doing for my neighbor. Started and will continue into March.

In another post I talked about having an open spot for something I might want to make that wasn’t in my sight. I didn’t leave a spot on my list for that, but I sure did find that something.

I Heart You from Cluck Cluck Sew

All in all a very good month considering it was so short. And I got distracted, by a game app and Netflix. Gah! I need an intervention!!!

Wednesday WIP plan is to get this top pieced together and add borders. 1st border will be a thin dark green. 2nd border will be a Flying Geese border in place of the HST’s on The Inquiring Quilter’s graphic.

    1. Thank you ma’am! I have now placed it on a different table until summer. I might run out of tables with all these toppers!

  1. Hi Chris,
    That Rhubarb Crisp table topper sounds yummy – I love rhubarb! Your basket table runner looks great, and I especially love that crosshatch quilting. It goes perfectly with your baskets. Good job finishing the passport cases! Where are you cruising too? We go in June to Canada and Maine on NCL. I can’t wait! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. OMG, one monthly goal. I’m going to have to remember this.
    I should make an OMG of each of the quilt tops that I have done to actually finish them into quilts.

  3. Lovely table topper! Looks like you made such progress on your goals. I love your miniature version of my Irish Eyes pattern! I love my original border (the flying geese) so much although now I’m going a different way. Can’t wait to see this finished! Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss!
