My ALYOF goal for January was to complete my Jelly Roll Race quilt. If you remember I ran into a snag a couple of months ago trying to quilt it. Literally TONS of snags. My machine was eating my thread. I finally figured out the problem. I was using Aurifill thread I had won last year and didn't pay attention to the thread weight. Silly me, I assumed they were like the others I had purchased at my local quilt shop. Even though I changed threads, they were from the same pack, so they were all super thick. Even changing my needle didn't work because I need a larger size eye than I have.
The great thing about this mistake is that it gave me freedom to put my pedal to the medal and just freely quilt that puppy up. There was no way I was going to pull out all those threads and start over. I wanted this quilt done so I could give it away.
Can you believe how sunny it is?! Yesterday it was 61 degrees. My husband and I almost took the top down on the convertible. Almost. :) The weather could easily turn and we could have snow and ice next week, but today I am basking in the sunshine and soaking up some Vitamin D.
How are you doing on your goals this month? You still have a few more days to link up with Shanna & Melissa over at A Lovely Year of Finishes. I need to complete another quilt so I have a binding to work on again. :)
