Review of August 2009 Quilting Goals


Here it is the end of the month. I must say I’m pleased with what I accomplished. I don’t know if I set more realistic goals than I’ve done in the past or simply stayed focused for the most part. Perhaps it was a bit of both.

* At least 2 sets of blocks for the SBS Brown/Blue Swap

The 3rd set was completed 8/9

* Keep up with the SBS BOW

5 blocks turned in for August

* Finish star blocks to go with birthday swap blocks

not only finished the blocks, completed the quilt top 8/22

* Work on Josh’s quilt

completed hand quilting block #10 and started block # 11

* Make up mind about applique on table runner

decided against applique, repaired quilt, made and attached label 8/27

* Work on DWR – top needs to be done by mid-October

attached row of 5 rings, repaired previous work and made more rings

* Make rest of Birthday Swap Blocks

completed them on 8/12 and addressed envelopes for mailing

* Keep scraps cut up

no new scraps added to scrap bucket

* Quilt a baby quilt to get a finish!

This is the one thing I did not get done.

In addition to the above, I finished another baby quilt top (blocks already made) and I completed the shop sample for the Kansas Spirit BOM for my LQS.

What’s on My Design Wall – 6/22

Last week’s design wall project is finished. I posted about it a couple of days ago. So, it’s on to a new project.

This week it is this table runner I made from the Kansas Troubles Quilters Cranberry Wishes line. Yes, it’s a new project (so much for no new starts). Last fall I bought a jelly roll to make a couple of table runners and a bag from the Jammin’ Table Toppers & Bag pattern, also from KTQ.

Although it looks to be finished, I want to add the raw edge applique flowers to the ends of the runner. I’m actually trying to figure out if I can fashion a poinsettia since this is a Christmas line. I’ll either figure it out, go with the flowers as designed, or call it done.
