February -One Monthly Goal

One Monthly Goal for February (OMG)

I have decided to set up a big goal for  myself this month....  and join in with  Heidi and the others at the  OMG group for inspiration.

Hosted by Heidi at Red Letter Day blog

*** Quilty Note:    One Monthly Goal is open to any quilter who would like to set (and achieve!) ONE monthly goal, and share the success in a group environment! This is a friendly and social linkup: Loitering is permitted and Participant's are encouraged to spread cheer: Encourage and congratulate one another!  see rules here

My February Goal:  
Quilt and finish my Millhouse Inn  Petite Fleurs  quilt

This is the flimsy top for my   Petite Fleurs Quilt ....I started sewing  the quilt last week....  It came together a lot faster than I imagined it would!

I have accumulated  hoarded  a HUGE pile of Millhouse Inn fabric  ( Fig Tree and Co  by Moda ), since about 2009!  

The fabrics I set aside for this quilt.
And,  yes ... there is MORE fabric for more quilts to come!

( I think Millhouse Inn was my first fat quarter bundle of fabric that I purchased ,  and apparently I kept buying more  fabric each time that I found it on sale , to "go along" with that fat quarter bundle .  )

I bought the pattern back in 2009 or 2010, when I saw this design would work well with my Millhouse Inn stash obsession.  The pattern  has been sitting  on top of the fabrics, patiently waiting to be used.

I used the Millhouse Inn  "clotted cream" fabrics for my cream background fabric, too.
I hope  it will look shabby chic-ish after it is quilted.

 So, now , I am deciding what kind of quilting to try on this 71" by 81 " quilt.
I better get started on it.  

Note to self:   Remember to remove the persistent kitty helper before I start sewing!

Hop on over to Red Letter Quilts to see what other folks are working on this month for their goal.  And you can see more pictures in the Flickr group HERE.
I'm off to my sewing room!

  1. I can't wait to see your finish, I love fabrics & design.

  2. Beautifully done! Love the soft colors in your version. Good luck with your February goal.

  3. Oh that is so beautiful Susie! The perfect combination of fabrics and pattern. You got it put together so quickly it's amazing.
    LOL, sometimes I do the same thing with FQ bundles. You sort of forget about all the fabrics you bought to go along with the bundle.
    Best wishes with your Whiskery quilting! :)

  4. I love Whiskers - lying there all innocent - stopping you from reaching your OMG! Your quilt top is gorgeous and SO big. That is going to take you a lot of quilting. So stop reading your comments and get to work. ;-)

  5. Wow, you started that only last week. I'm impressed. I look forward to seeing how you choose to quilt it.

  6. What is it about cats and quilts? They just can't seem to resist laying on them. (proving cats are the smartest animal) I bet you are thoroughly enjoying working these cherished fabrics. I look forward to seeing what you decide to do with your quilting.

  7. Very pretty!! You must have worked very hard every day to get this together so fast.
