One Monthly Goal: Finish the Union Jack quilt in January 2018

After participating in the Bag-It event at Elm Street Quilts, I have learned about the One Monthly Goal initiative and I am in!  I simply have to make a goal at the beginning of the month and try to accomplish it at the end of the month- and document my intentions/results.

After quilting the snails quilt, I put the Union Jack quilt right onto my longarm.  And it's been there for maybe a month?!  I am scared, I don't know what type of free motion quilting to do in the borders!  But I've got to get going on it, as there will be other things to load onto the longarm soon enough and loading a quilt onto a longarm frame is not something you want to do more than once for the same quilt.  I just need to myself that "finished is better than perfect," right?!

I haven't done well in documenting this quilt, but it's been a WIP for quite a while and finishing the quilt top a few months ago felt like a major accomplishment.  I hope to share a finished quilt at the end of the month!
