My goal for March was to finish quilting Caitlin’s pixel portrait.
Finished quilting my pixel portrait from 2011 PIQF! Can’t believe I finished the quilting just in a nick of time. Now just need to finish the blog, get it posted and linked up and we will finally have success. I seemed to always be challenged with the linkup so we shall see. Linking up with Elm Street March One Monthly Goal.

It’s been a very busy month. It has been fun participating in the Insgtagram Photo Challenge for #igquiltfest hosted by @amyscreativeside. It is quickly coming to an end with only two days left. I have loved looking at everyone’s projects, tips, fabric, etc. Continue reading “Quilt Diary: March Progress”
Hello Fellow Adventurers:
Last week while doing the #igquiltfest photo challenge, an interesting prompt came up that I realized I had no such thing – Solids only quilt. I have never done a quilt out of all solids. Obviously I use solids a lot just like most quilters. I have done solid read fabric quilts such as batiks, tone on tone, or blenders. When I decided to do this 365 Block Challenge in all solids, it really simplified everything! It will be so easy to add fabrics as needed. No matching required. I chose blue-green as my main color. The challenge is dark dark to very light. I decided to use black as my dark dark. I am happy with that choice. It looks great. You also have a background very light (white for me) and light (silver/gray) for me. I am so happy with these choices. I think the quilt will look so cool!

The weekend went semi how I hoped. I did get a lot of hockey in. Way more than I anticipated which cut into my quilt time. But I was able to update my Quilt-A-Long and Sew-A-Long list and feel like I know what I need to do and even get semi caught up. Continue reading “Quilt Diary: March 12 Update on quarter goals”

Recently traveled to Phoenix, Arizona so I thought I would give you my take on that fair city.
For President’s Day Weekend, I took Shaun, my grandson, to a hockey tournament in the Phoenix area. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Tempe. It was nice enough. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. They handled a gaggle of 10-year-old boys quite well. Continue reading “Travel Diary: Phoenix: Hockey & 5k”
March is upon us Adventurers!
Time to pick a new goal for the month. I have to laugh because this is the last month of the quarter and I had a long list for my 2018 FinishALong. So I plenty of things to choose from since I have only finished two things on that very ambitious list. So let’s see what should I pick? I have dwelled on this for the last two days and finally made a decision on what I want most to finish. Continue reading “Quilt Diary: March One Monthly Goal”
