One Monthly Goal

I am linking up with the women over at One Monthly Goal for this post.  
In addition to having this on my spreadsheet as a goal for May I am putting it here too.

I want to make a MSU quilt for my husband, for our camper bed, to use in the fall. 
 I have been diligently collecting greens I can use to piece the top, but had not done 
hardly any cutting until last night. 
 Here is what my cutting table looked like.

I have been cutting for this quilt, for another quilt that needs greens and making a pile for a friend.
She is making a quilt that needs 50 of the green squares 
(I think she told me she is actually making 7 of these quilts so she needs a LOT of green!!)

I figured out that if I cut my squares at 5" I will need 342 squares to make my quilt the size I want.
I have over 200 cut so far.  My goal is to have this top completed this month.  
I need to sew all the 5" squares together then applique a gigantic Spartan helmet to the top in white. 
 I have cut some MSU Spartan fabrics to add to the top also. 
 If anyone has any of the more green MSU fabrics and could send a 5" square that would be great! 
 If you have any other Spartan green fabrics (you can see the colors I was cutting) 
please email me and I will give you my address.  
Needing 342 squares, I would love some variation if anyone has any darker/kelly greens to share. 
 I may be able to help you with something if you ask too.  

My email is mamaspark@gmail.com

Thanks for the inspiration to get er done!

I am looking forward to seeing your finish. I am anxious to see your applique on the field of green!

It's interesting to read you're making a quilt entirely of green blocks and then adding appliqué, and that your friend is making seven! Is this a new fashion in home decor? I shall have to check back here again; I'm puzzled!!

This is going to be a cool quilt. What a cool idea to get green squares from others! Quilting people are so awesome to others!! Have a great day!

I have some greens left from my broncos quilt. Have a look on Instagram and if you want them, I’ll gladly mail to you. Let me know.

Wow, that's a hefty goal. I had to come see what you were doing with my favorite color. You are so nice to cut for your friend, too!
