January's Goal is Complete!

My January goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes was to put the borders on this quilt, quilt it and bind it.  I am happy to report the goal has been completed, with a couple of hours to spare!!

This was my second attempt at quilting a small quilt (31" x 37") on my Janome Jem.  Actually it's my second attempt at quilting a small quilt on any domestic machine.  I still need some work on getting everything pulled taut and basted.  I used a polyester/cashmere batting, since that is what I had available.  I definitely like a cotton batting better....less loft.  But I must say, this quilt is already soft and cuddly.

I'm glad I made this quilt my goal for the month; otherwise, it would still be unfinished.   
Now what will my goal be for February??
