A goal for February


This is a very special quilt top. The goal is to give it to my grandmother who turns 93 this month. I wanted to have it quilted last month and it didn't happen. I'm setting it for my goal for a Lovely Year Of Finishes in February.

I may regret setting this as my goal since it hinges on other things. I'm signed up for the long arm certification class at my LQS and I want to do this on the longarm once I'm certified. I was signed up last month and the class was canceled. My grandmother's birthday is the 19th. I'm hoping I can get it done before then, but I have no idea what the rental schedule even looks like! So the goal is by the end of the month. It will probably be late for her b-day anyway since I'll have to bind it too. wish me luck!!

Good luck! The good news is that longarming is quicker to cover that kind of area than a domestic machine, I'll just hope everyone else has other quilting plans for Feb so you can get to the machine ;o)

Good luck! I like the idea of shops having a long arm you can get certified for then hire to use. We don't really have that in Australia.
