I begin to wonder if I set the bar too low for my first Lovely Year of Finishes goal of 2014. But then I remember that the point of setting a goal is to help motivate a less-than-favorite task. Adding sashing and borders is the needle scratch in my quilting dance party, so without the goal, this pile o’ blocks would have sat indefinitely. As it is, I have the rest of the month to sandwich, quilt, and bind it, if I dare!


The blocks are partly from the Music City Modern Quilters Guild’s 2013 block of the month, supplemented and modified with other favorites.


Anyone else still keeping up their January goals?
