January OMG

One of my longest-running UFOs is an Ohio Star quilt in scrappy purples for close friend.  I have no idea how long ago I started making it but it's been years.  I'm determined to finish it in 2020, ideally by May since we'll see each other in person.

I am using the One Monthly Goal link-up hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts to help move this project along.  I currently have 16 blocks made--all finished a year ago or more.  My goal is to make at least that many so that I double my number of completed blocks.  So at least 16 newly finished Ohio Star blocks.

Want to set your own goal for January?  Here's the linkup:

  3. Good luck with those stars .I'm sure your friend will love the quilt when you get it done.
