One Very Soggy Lion

You would think - being a Leo - that I'd be ok with March blasting in with a big old roar.  Well a lion is an over-sized pussycat and I don't think they'd like all this water either.

I had a GREAT time at the quilting show in Puyallup.  Same weekend, my sweetie quit his job of 27 years (gulp) & my office landed an exciting new project.  Now Ash Wednesday is here.  Do lions always run this fast???

My ButtonI promise to blog later about the great fabric & classes from last weekend.  (I'll even talk about my total fan-girl moments with two of my quilting heroes, Nancy Zieman & Tula Pink).  But the order of business today is setting my March goal for AYOLF.

This month is less about meeting a deadline & more about getting to an IMPORTANT project that isn't an URGENT project.  I mean, it's one thing to need something for a baby shower.  It's a different thing to find time to finish a quilt that has no deadline but is for someone really, really important.  Well - in this case - it's my precious ManChild.  He's quite aware that other people got quilts before he did.  I finished his quilt top (except for borders) for his birthday.  In October.  (I'm blushing right now - trust me).

I made this Carpenter's star in Northcott's Stonehenge line.
This is actually a miniature mock-up.  Why can't I find a photo of the quilt top??

Now it needs borders & quilting.  Well - actually - quilting & THEN borders.  The MC is not small.  His quilt is also not small.  King-sized (the MC & the quilt)  So I'm going to quilt the center first then attach borders & quilt those.  I have to piece the minky for the back anyway & I'm doing all the quilting on my Pfaff Ambitions sewing machine.

So - being realistic - my goal for March is to quilt
 the center section of this Carpenter's Star.

(Hmm - this is sorta how I look when I go out...)
The ManChild will be so pleased & I'll be able to snuggle him up vicariously even after he leaves our nest.  
Or den.  (In keeping with the theme).
