6 and 6 and one monthly goal

We are finally up in the double digits outside but our thermostat won't rise above 66 - sigh... and a flat tire sigh....
I have finished clue 6 of On ringo lake quiltville mystery quilt. I used 10- 3 1/2 inch strips cut with my accuquilt die and the essential triangle tool to make the coral triangles. I didn't have any trimming to do since each of the pieces were accurate ( for a change).

I wanted to make a list for my One monthly goal at Elm street quilts.

For the month of January, I am hoping to cut out a turtle quilt.

and add borders and quilt the butterfly quilt that I have had for a few years.

There is a new ufo challenge -6 and 6 challenge at pomegranate and chintz
January is something new which will be the turtle quilt.

I see how this can run concurrently with the other challenges I hope to do.
I want to do the scrap attack at confessions of a fabric addict. Most of my goals involve scraps so I am good to go for project ideas.
