Setting a Goal! Meeting the Goal!

Earlier this week I share a corner of the mystery quilt I was assembling. Life was conspiring against me all week, but I have been determined that the quilt front would be assembled before the week was through. This morning early it was done...then it was pressed....and I took it outside....brrrr....to take a photograph of the assembled top. The temperature of -22C made me work quickly. The windchill of -30C made it hard to get a photo that I found acceptable. You can see the results. Determination is a good thing.

Beautiful quilt but I have trouble sorting out "F" from "C". It sounds like C is cold as F.

Thank you. I'm quite happy with the result to this point. Now I need to find a backing fabric and then get it quilted. It's one of many that are waiting in queue for me to get to them.

@peachpurple I've been giving a woman lessons for several months. Yesterday we began to assemble her quilt top. She is very pleased.

@jstory07 thank you. When I started to assemble it I had my reservations. I thought it might be a little too busy and chaotic...but as I added rows I began to rally like it. Hanging on my clothesline this morning, I love it!

This is beautiful, I admire how brave you have been to go outside to take a photo.

Trying to get photos of the quilts inside is difficult. They take up a lot of space (imagine?) and then getting the lighting and a clear photo becomes an even bigger challenge. Outside....in the snow....I have an easier time. I laid it out first and then decided to hang it from the clothesline.

@Morleyhunt It rains from two days here, so it would have not been an option. The temperature is not too bad here, 8 degrees Celsius.

@Morleyhunt I also do like doing the same way, too. A good reflection of what we've done for the day.

It is a learning process. With each quilt I make I seem to learn something new. My accuracy is improving .....now if I could only learn to finish a project before beginning a new one.

Thank you. This is the third time I've done a mystery quilt. I think this one is in the running for a favourite. I've liked all of them when the top has been assembled.

Your quilt is stunning! At first, I didn't see the clothes line and it looked like the quilt was floating in air!

That would have been a trick. I'm not that talented. The wind made it a challenge to get a decent photo.

Just this weekend I read. Aim for the sun.....you will achieve much more than if you aim for something at your own level....even if you don't achieve the sun.

Once I set a goal I usually try to see it through. I've learned though to work towards my goals in smaller steps so I'm not getting discouraged.

I like to finish things. Now if I could only get my UFO (unfinished objects) pile to shrink, I'd be blissfully happy.
