It's so cold out!

What do you do when it feels like -51*F outside? You boil some water and go throw it into the air.

January-OMG link up

On January 3rd, I listed my OMG goal as making progress on my Splendid Sampler quilt. Which has been a completed quilt top since April 2017.

As of right now I have all 80 quilt blocks quilted, the yellow border is quilted with ribbon candy, and the flower border is quilted in a meandering/stipple stitch. I ordered some thread and I'm hoping it will match the dark gray border on the blocks.

OMG January link up.

January OMG- 1/2 way

I have half the blocks in splendid sampler quilted! 40 blocks to go. Than I have to decide what to quilt in the dark grey block shadowed. I'm thinking ribbon candy, but I know I'll need to find a template or a way to draw i before I quilt it.

The kids are enjoying a day off from school. Roads were icy so they canceled.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I'll be participating again in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I'm planning on doing the RSC sampler. but I'm also looking at other projects to use up my scraps.

This Rainbow Irish Chainhas been in my list for a while now.

I recently seen a rainbow version of The village quilt and I plan on doing that.

I also think making these fish out of crumb blocks would be fun.

I also plan on finishing the rainbow Scrap quilt I have started.

I would also love to do this quilt.

Last year I seen lots of different posts for OMG (One Monthly Goal). I decided to check it out. And I'm going to join in this year.

I decided for January I want to make progress on my Splendid Quilt.

This has been a completed top since April of 2017. I started this in February of 2016 as part of a QAL. I've been scared to try quilting it on my domestic machine. But I'm trying to work out a plan, and hope to make progress on it. It might have to wait a little bit though, I think the kids are coming down with the flu.
