A Lovely Year of Finishes - February goal setting

This month I should finish my chosen project fairly easily, in theory. I've even decided how I'm going to achieve my aim.

This is my Scrappy Trip around the World quilt using a Sweetwater jelly roll and some fat quarters. It is quilted and the binding machine stitched to the front. This month I need to hand stitch the binding and tie off the ends on each individually quilted block. I plan to take it to my Wednesday morning group where it is easier to hand stitch.

I also plan to finish my Bee in my Bonnet Row along. I am hoping that my turquoise backing will arrive tomorrow and I can use the excess to add the small frame around the rows. Then there's another thin white frame and the border before I load it on the machine. My Aurifil threads haven't yet arrived but I'm hopeful that they'll also arrive this week so I can quilt this and two other customer quilts which are waiting impatiently.

The Row along needs to be finished this month as it's one of the projects I plan to enter into this year's Eisteddfod needlework section.
