6 & 6 Report for February

I haven't been doing great on my 2018 goals so far.  Maybe I set too many?  Hmmmm, I don't think so.  There have been years when I completed between fifteen and twenty quilts, so the goals aren't unreasonable.  I just need to get focused.  And centered.  And concentrate.  And stop cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry!  

I finally finished my 6 & 6 in 2018 goal for January.  I'm really happy with the Zen Chic quilt even if it did take a while to finish.  What can I say?  It is a finish, and that's always a good thing!

It's 40" by 49" so it's a great baby quilt that can become a toddler quilt.  It's the first quilt I've made specifically to put back for great-grand/great-niece or nephew babies.  The first of many, I hope.

I hand quilted this one and enjoyed it.  There's nothing more relaxing than sitting in my rocker and stitching.  

The idea behind 6 & 6 in 2018 is to make six new projects and finish six old projects or UFOs.  Now that my January goal is met, and my February goal (the T-Shirt quilt) is progressing, it's time to choose a new project for March. That will be another "Put Back for the Grands" quilt.  I don't have a clue what it will be, but I need to decide quickly.  

In the meantime, here are a few more shots of Zen Chic!

I'm linking up with Meredithe at pomegranate and chintz.  Then I'm going to go sew.


  1. That quilt turned out so cute.

  2. What a perfect little quilt to hand quilt! I looked at the long straight lines, and thought, "She's brilliant!" Especially the little curliques on the flower petals, you genius!

  3. Congrats on such a cute finish, Sandy! I love that big flower :)

  4. Yay for Zen Chick finish! She turned out very pretty. Nice quilting, Sandy.
