March: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

Hello March!

It's time to think about another month of 'A Lovely Year of Finishes'
One month, one project, one finish for 12-months. 2013 a year of lovely finishes.

Do you need a primer of what 'A Lovely Year of Finishes' actually is?
and my awesome partner on this project
Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs has a reference page found here.
So I have to actually choose a project too? Pshaw!

I actually visited most of the finish link-up's from last month and my brain is on overload it could also be the fact that I've been able to watch some of the QuiltCon lectures over at Craftsy.

I have such a pile of WIP's that choosing a project shouldn't be that hard.

So here's what I want to get done.  This lovely pile of clothing came from a high school girlfriends.  It's taken a million hours to deconstruct these pieces, and then testing stabilizing requirements. Oh the challenge of doing something like this.
March #ALYoF goal - just the quilt top

I'm going to finish the quilt top (just the quilt top) by the end of this month.  It's going to be a stretch as I have two weeks of work travel - but I know that I can get it done! 

What do you have planned for your March Finish?
Remember you get to choose what you consider a project and a finish.
