Q1 FAL Finish and February OMG Goal Setting

I have been ill since the Year of the Rooster.  Before Chinese New Year, I was busy rushing to quilt the commissioned pineapple quilt.  Meeting deadlines at work and staying up late at night to quilt weakened my immunity.  I caught the flu bug and ran a fever for the first few days of the Chinese New Year.  Urgh!  I cannot remember when was the last time I fell so sick before.

The good thing was I managed to finish the binding for the quilt before I fell sick.   The quilt measures 105″ x 93, about the size of a king-sized quilt.  This is the biggest quilt I have quilted so far.  Oh my, this quilt is heavy.  I think it must be the cotton batting adding to the weight.

My husband and daughter kindly helped to hold the quilt up while I took the picture.

Let’s see how the quilt looks like using my king-size bed as a model.

This is my first finish for 2017 Q1 FAL.  See my goals here

Ok now onto my February goal.  I have decided to do something simple using June Tailor’s Charming Circle ruler.  I bought this ruler with the intention to sew a denim tote bag.  Well I have started.  See my WIP.

Now for some good news.  I won a prize for my 2016 Q4 FAL finish!  Thank you Fluffy Sheep Quilting for sponsoring the prize.  In December, during the Sew Mama Sew giveaway, I won a pattern by Sandra (yes another Sandra) of mmm!quilts.  These are all my Christmas presents. LOL.
