January quota met

I finished my 4 little preemie quilts for a local hospital (donation through my church) on the last day of January, one for each week of the month. I'm using all of the scraps left over from cutting the gowns and receiving blankets.
To keep the edges thin and flexible I just use a serger finish on them.
They measure anywhere from 18" to 24", some are square, some are rectangular.
I met my self imposed quota of 4 finished quilts in January too and added a tablerunner for good measure. They can be seen on previous January posts. I cut a few more pieces for the star quilt but didn't get any blocks made yesterday. That is what I will work on today.

Ha ha...thanks Wanda, you are making it harder for me to convince myself that I don't need a serger!

Those blankies are wonderful.

Congrats for meeting your quota!! I know in my mind I always set a quota, but rarely, if ever meet it. So I know what a big deal it is. Those preemie quilts are just fantastic and I am sure they will be loved!

The blankets are so sweet. You continue to amaze me with all you accomplish in such stellar fashion.

Brava for making your quota. I am so impressed with all you have accomplished. Now remember Feb. has 3 fewer days than Jan. so plan accordingly.

I am always in awe of the goals you set for yourself and meet them as well.

I smiled to see that you used the lime green that is 'so in' right now, in your sweet 'lil' receiving blankets. The happiness you give to those mom's is priceless.

I am so impressed that you set and meet your goals! I don't even set goals, therefore I am never disappointed...it works for me. Your quilts that are being donated are so lovely..they look warm and inviting. Who knows what beloved treasures they may become for the little babies who use them now.

That serger finish is a neat idea -- wonder if I could do something similar with the fake serger stitch on my Janome...
