January's lucky number was "2". Which for me was my red and white star quilt. This quilt is such a huge task with 2870 square in a squares so I knew I wouldn't get it finished all in that month but I figured that as much as I could knock off of the better. I started out the month with only about 50 blocks done but I ended the month with 724 blocks done which I feel was a pretty good effort. Some of these blocks are only 2 inches square. Actually most of them are. The 2 inch size block makes up for over 2000 of the blocks. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this through the month of January and glad that it came up as first off the list so I have plenty more months to work on it.
I decided that while I knew I wasn't going to finish the red and white stars quilt in the month of January I would try and finish another quilt that was on my list so that it would free the month up that, that quilt fell in to do some more work the red and white stars quilt. For January I decided to quilt my "tilt a whirl" quilt from Amy Gibson from stitchery dickory dock. I already had a completed quilt top so all I needed to do was baste it and get it quilted. Then add the binding. So I also got that quilt completed for the month of January and I was so pleased at how it turned out and that I am keeping a good pace with my quilting and finishes this year.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and thanks for reading.
