March OMG and a Custom Quilt

I have so many works in progress right now that I am having a hard time choosing just one as an OMG. I need to buy backings for the two Sunshowers tops and the Meadowland top.  All three need to be quilted and bound.  I would love to complete the Frolic top. If you've done a Bonnie Hunter quilt before, you know it is a ton of sewing.  I have the main blocks made, but need to make all the edge blocks, do the setting, and put on a bunch of pieced borders.  I already have backing for that one.  I sewed together a bunch of leftover HST from another project and I'd like to do something with that.  Right now I'm leaning toward a pillow, but I'm just not sure.  

I like to have several projects going at once because often I get bored with the repetitiveness and need the mental break/challenge of working on something new.  But sometimes having choices is overwhelming! That's usually the point where I just start something new that is smaller and a quick finish.  But really, these WIP are getting a bit out of control.

Which to pick, which to pick?  I think I'm going to go with quilting the Meadowland for my March OMG.

I've been pretty slow-moving the last few weeks.  My back has been pretty sore after the tumble down the stairs.  I did very slowly work on quilting my friend's top.  I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.

I was privileged to hear Gyleen X. Fitzgerald speak last night at one of the guilds I belong to.  I have been very fortunate to hear and/or take classes with many nationally known speakers and Gyleen is right at the top.  She's a really fantastic speaker.  I enjoyed her so much.  I wish I could have been able to take one of her classes at IHQS.  If you ever have the chance to hear her or take a class, I urge you to do so.  Or you can check out her website here.  I just really can't say enough good things about her.
