OMG: One Monthly Goals

My February single goal is to make a Swoon Mini.

Making a Swoon quilt has been on my quilty bucket list for quite awhile. So when Sandra of  mmm quilts asked if I would like to join her and Tish of Tish's Adventures in Wonderland in making a swoon mini. I said " yes please". We are going to keep each other on the straight and narrow and by the end of February we will all have a finished quilt. Thank goodness this month has an extra day as I might be need it.

Before doing my fabric pull I checked out this Pinterest board for some ideas. So many wonderful swoon colours!
I took a look through my FQ collection, I may have a little bit of a collection, every time I look they seem to grow. Such pretties! So many choices. I decided to pair a floral with a solid. I like my pull, although after looking at my photo I may change out my background fabric for more of a white.

Wish me luck in completing my goal.

We've got this! I love the fabrics you picked out, mixing solids with prints. I still need to do my fabric pull, sounds like a good idea for this evening. When are you officially going to start?

What a great ideas; I love that you have 2 friends encouraging you along the way. It will be fun to see all your finishes at the end of the month. As Tish said above, you've got this! :)

Yay! I love what you've got, and I think you're right to change that background out. I know my stash doesn't seem to have a lot of white-based fabrics, probably with quilting since the late 90s and backgrounds were mostly ivory. Here we go! This will be FUN!

Your fabric colors are luscious to look at! I can't wait to see what the three of you do this month! And I bet the end results will make me swoon! (Perfect theme for Valentine's month.)
