A Year of Lovely Finishes: February!

Wow, it seems like 2013 is flying by -- it's already February! My lovely friends Melissa and Shauna are hosting a year of lovely finishes on their blog this year. Basically they are encouraging us to finish up some projects this year, but focusing on each month at a time. They even have prizes and all sorts of fun things!  Since I have tons of sewing projects for this year to finish I think this it the perfect opportunity to encourage me to finish some of them up. I totally missed out on January, but it's never too late to start.

So for this month my goal is finish the x-marks the spot quilt for do good stitches. That means quilt and bind and everything. Last time you saw it, this was my progress:

Since then I have almost pieced together the entire quilt...and then tore it all out so now it looks like the picture above. The other day I had an apiphany about the design for this and changed things up. As a result I need to make a trip to my favorite local quilt shop and pick up some solids to finish it up. So after I finish up some assignments for school I'll reward myself with some fabric love. I am excited to share the end result with you - hope you guys will like it as much as I think I am going to =)

What projects are you working on this month??
