January Finish!

So, at the beginning of the month, I talked about a Lovely Year of Finishes... and I'm so excited to report that I met my goal for January.  I came in nearly right to the wire finished two nights ago, but I'm so happy to see this one to the finish line.

I started January with this design up on the wall. 


Each piece was lop-sided and needed to be trimmed to 4 inches square to tidy things up.  What a lot of trimming... but it seriously made all the difference in the world when I pieced everything together!


And.... Ta Da!  It's pieced.   Setting this goal helped me realize that if I trimmed and pieced just a few rows a week I would be done in no time.  And to my delight, that approach worked very nicely!


Here's the top folded after ironing.  It's so nice to see it all come together.  


A closer look at it sewn up on the design wall again.


And an up close of the razzle dazzle center.  


My plans for this top are to turn it into a hawk quilt.  I know, you're looking at this thinking what does this have to do with a hawk.  But stick along, and you'll see!

Isn't it nice to set a goal for each month? I don't know about you, but it made me more focused and productive.

Great job! Im also working on finishing up a WIP list that is way too long. I especially love the little strawberry fabric you've got pieced in this one. Any idea where you got it? HAPPY FRIDAY!
