Which was yesterday - in case you didn't know.
It dawned on me in the morning that half of the month was gone and I hadn't even started on the quilting goals that I had already moved from February to March. I decided National Quilting Day would be a good time to make an effort.
This scrappy log cabin quilt, which I put together last August, was one that I had hoped to quilt and bind.
Then I realized the reason I kept avoiding it was because I really wanted it to be bigger. At 42x56 it might be nice enough for a child's napping quilt but I'd rather have it large enough for me - or someone closer to my size at least.
So yesterday I set about to add another column and another row to it. It's now 56 x 70 - good enough.
I'll put the quilting and binding on my list of April goals while I decide what would work as a backing. Til then I need to spend some time cleaning up the mess I made of my sewing room on National Quilting Day.

I didn't meet any of the sewing goals I posted for February -- didn't do a stitch. For two of the weeks, I was busy helping to care for my mom after she had a fall. We finally got her settled into a nursing home on Friday to get some therapy. I don't know what my excuse could be for the rest of the month - I just kept procrastinating. And it was a short month.
But the month wasn't a total loss. I did manage to finish two small weaving projects. My first attempts at weaving - and I really enjoyed it.
They're both about the same size - perfect for a small table runner.
I'll shove the February goals into March and see if I have better luck. It is a longer month.
