2016 Block of the Month

When I signed up for the APQ Resolutions and made my list I added things randomly with the hope that as each month came along I would be able to get that project completed and face some things that I had perhaps been putting off. 

This month was the first month and #6 was the Challenge number -- for me this was the Block of the Month from last year that I had actually intended to finish up last year and gift it as a Christmas gift to a 10 year old little girl who recently had to move across the country with her mother when her grandmother passed away. I never found the energy in December to get it quilted though I did manage to get it basted one afternoon at lunch. 

So I set forth in simple quilting around mid month and it only took me a few hours on a Friday evening. 

I already had the binding cut from the same fabric as the backing and once I got it all attached, the quilt was all ready to go. 

She loves her new quilt and was very happy to put it in her very own room now that they are getting more settled in the new place.  

This was my 4th finish of the month and one item off the Quarterly Goals list. 


  1. It's gorgeous! Congrats on the finish.

  2. Your 4th finish of the month, and its only mid month! You're a whirlwind this month. I too decided no bees or swaps this year but ....

  3. Congrats on the finish. It turned out great and I'm sure she will cherish it for many years to come.
