February OMG Goal

I have always used various Finish Alongs to help me keep focused on finishing UFOs.  Now that they are getting under control, I have decided to use OMG (One Monthly Goal at Red Letter Quilts) to keep me focused on sewing up my older fabric stash.  Each month I plan on making a fabric pull that will be used to make a quilt that month.  I will try my best to gather up fabrics that will work for the quilt top, the backing and the binding - all from my stash.



Here is the fabric pull for February.  Once I figure out what to do with it, I might need to add a few more pieces...but only from my stash!  The fabric on the bottom is an ancient Jennifer Sampou print.

So I had better get cutting if this is going to be a quilt by the end of the month.  Be sure and head over to Red Letter Quilts to see what other bloggers have planned for the month.

Love the dots but you might want to look for yet another stripe or a plaid. I know you will come up with a great plan.

I love this fabric selection. That sounds like a good way to get things done.

That's a great goal, your fabric pull is telling me to buy black dotty fabric when my stash resolutions are met!!

Plenty of gorgeous dotty fabric in there, (I love polka-dot fabrics) and the colours are so lovely together. If I didn't had a full time job I would join you in this goal as I want to use up my older fabric too. Good luck with your goal. Can't wait to see what will become of this beautiful pile. ;^)

I have used that multi-dot with the black background as binding. It's darling! It will be fun to see what this becomes! Great idea to make a stash quilt each month!
