Woo Hoo, I Met My Goal!

Good evening, ya'll. Thank you so much for stopping by. I just wanted to share a quick post . 
Last month, I linked up to Elm Street Quilts blog in the One Monthly Goal challenge and Woo Hoo, I met my goal. My plan was to finish this small four patch green quilt which I finished this weekend.  Right in the knick of time. Wheww!
This little quilt is perfect for St. Patrick's Day and I have already tried to sneak it into my decor . 


Since that was a small goal ,I also set a 2nd goal of making at least 20 yo yos to add to my yo yo quilt project. Check✔ .I completed that too. Here are some of the yo yos in my newest addition to my spring decor - a metal truck from Walmart. 


My project for tonight is to work on Tree of Life Samplings "Beauty and Grace". I want to add a few more stitches into the house. I am loving this stitch. 

Thank you for the sweet visit. 

Happy Quilting and Stitching, ya'll

    1. I was glad to get the little quilt finished. I was a little worried because I misplaced it but so fortunate to have found it in the knick of time. Lol. Thank you so much , Robin for the sweet visit.

  4. I'm one of your unknown readers - love to look - ooh and aah - but rarely comment. Not today tho. ;-) I see you're working on a yo-yo quilt. My great grandfather made one many years ago. I was wondering how you had planned to finish it? His yo-yo's were hand connected and then hand sewn to a backing. Not a quilt - more like a coverlet I guess.
    Thanks for your time.
    I really do like your blog!

    1. Aah thank you so much, Donna for visiting and leaving a comment. How amazing that your great grandfather made a yo yo quilt . I hope that you have it or it stayed in the family. I have always wanted one. Rarely I see them at antique stores and they are expensive in my area when I do see them. I have debated on both ways of finishing it. The ones that I have seen have not been backed, but a backing sure would make it more secure. I have seen yo yo quilts on the internet backed. I am aiming for a full size quilt and have about 1/2 already joined which I need to post a photo. I am so happy that you left me a comment about this little project.Once this piece is done, I hope to work on a hexagon quilt.
