OMG December Goal

For those of you who follow along with my quarterly WIP posts, you already know that my twin-sized Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt for my son has been languishing in the finished quilt top state for... let's just say quite some time. He does have a cuddle quilt I made for him, but it's about time I finish his bed quilt. After all, he did make a twin-sized bed quilt for his sister.

December is the month. I'm gonna get this one quilted and bound so G can have it on his bed.

The quilt is basted. It has been for a while. And I've got a quilting plan. I'll be using the rounded square spirals I used on this smaller version, also in the Marrakesh Variegated Aurifil 50wt. The size of the project is just daunting to me. I know it's possible. (Leah Day says so.) But, this will be the largest quilt I've quilted on my domestic machine, which has a 7" throat area.

Do you quilt large quilts on your home machine? You might enjoy Jessica Skultety's Top 10 Tips! The one I'll really be focusing on for this project is to work in short chunks of time.

I'm linking up to December OMG on Elm Street Quilts.

      Thank you, Patty. There's something about putting that goal out publicly that makes it more likely for me to achieve it. Thanks for hosting!

  2. For something that is daunting I like to make sure I've exercised or walked before to clear my head. Also have lots of bobbins wound, that could easily make me stop. Finally my favorite album playing in the background. Can't wait to see it.

      Thank you, Tisha. My asthma caused me to completely fall off my walking streak in November. Now that I'm finally feeling better I'm getting back to walking. That's a great idea to walk before I quilt. And for the first time ever I think I'll wind multiple bobbins. :-)

    Good luck. I think that's a great quilting choice. Looking forward to seeing it when you're finished.
