July and August Goals

2 Comments


Before I talk goals, I want to share things from two other blogs.

I am completely in love with this top made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts!  It’s a modern use of a traditional block, and the colors!  Oh!

And BadAss Quilters Society has some guidelines on copyright infringement (stealing).

I was partially successful in completing my July goals.

July Goals

  1. Make blocks for Kat’s July/August Covered in Love block drive.  Yes!  And even mailed!  18 blocks.
  2. Continue with Layer Cake Explosion, whichever step I’m on.  Um, no, I put this off because it’s paper pieced, then my printer fritzed.
  3. Continue with Pacific Stars.  Yes!  Clue 3 complete.
  4. Experiment with some kind of floral, layered art quilt thingy.  (Vague enough?) No.  Nothing.

Bonus:  I made The Last Zebra baby quilt.  Got those scraps out from under my sewing cabinet.

 

August Goals:

  1. Finish piecing Layer Cake Explosion.
  2. Continue with Pacific Stars.
  3. Make Christmas wall hangings for my shop.
  4. Make a scrap quilt for donation.

 

I know many of you have far less sewing time than I do, but I’m enjoying seeing you working away at your goals as you can.  Keep it up!

  1. Good luck with your August goals.

  2. Before I went back to work, I also set goals and got a lot done. Now I’m mostly content with doing a little something creative every day. I miss my hours of uninterrupted sewing time!
