February OMG

February is a shorter month, so I was a little hesitant to make a major goal for my One Monthly Goal (OMG). However, this UFO has been lingering far too long--it is my Row Along Quilt that I pieced way back in July 2013. I got it out after Xmas and got the borders on last month, embroidered my label, and pieced my backing which leaves quilting and binding.

I got it pinned this afternoon and started on the quilting. I hope to get the quilting done between tonight and tomorrow morning, so I can work on binding it during the Super Bowl for Slow Sunday Stitching: https://kathysquilts.blogspot.ca

We are not that enthusiastic about the Super Bowl, but we will be rooting for the Eagles and I am making Philly Cheesesteaks in the crock pot with some other goodies. At least we can rely on the commercials and Justin Timberlake to entertain us while I work on my binding!

  6. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who watches the Superbowl for commercials and the halftime show. Philly cheesesteaks sounds like a perfect way to celebrate.

  7. That's a beautiful quilt, Tanya! I'm sure you'll be stitching on that binding by 4:30! Your Philly cheese steak sandwiches sound yummy.

  10. I guess that since I am in PA and no Steelers this year I'll root for the Eagles as well though I don't follow football very much.

    What a great quilt to dig out of the stash for a finish! :)

  11. I hope you met your goal! Care to share your recipe for the Philly Cheese-steaks? I am a big fan of the crockpot!

  12. I was sewing while the Super Bowl was on. We were rooting for the Eagles too since Carson Wentz, quarterback that was recently sidelined due to a torn ACL, is from our hometown and also graduated from our Alma Mater. We were sad he wasn't able to play but happy knowing that he helped get them there.

  14. I'n not a Superbowl fan either; I used to tape it so I could watch the commercials and half time later. I'm looking forward to see your quilt all finished up; it sure is a beaut!

  16. Hey, I remember when these were running- yours is pretty! Nice OMG. I need to get cracking on mine. I have one more quilt to run through quickly, then I'll put my OMG on the frame.
