This was my first finish of the second quarter.
I did finish quilting this top!
This was my second and third goal met for the quarter. I did finish piecing the mystery quilt and I did piece the back.
Below are my third quarter goals:
Stitch the President's blocks into a top. This is a sample of one block at left. I got close to finishing this goal at the end of June; but, didn't quite make it so I'm rolling it over to the next quarter!
I am adding that I will also:
Piece a back for it
Pin Baste it
Notice that I didn't write that I would also have the binding, label and sleeve finished too!
butterfly quilt--get it pin basted,
TQS BOM--figure out the embroidery for the border that I want to add,
Five past book club and one current book club projects:
Finish this little top.
Add the skinny pieces to liven up the background and appliqué the flowers to finish the top.
Add the quilting to this project. I also want to add some beads which will be a first for me!
Figure out how to fit the bridge on this piece and what to do with the open bottom right corner:
These are two starts to book club quilts. . .Are you seeing a pattern??? I must return to my word for the year. . .FOCUS on finishing!!!
Keep putting in a little time each month on appliquéing the pieces that over lap the blocks on this chicken wall hanging. I only stitched on it three times in the last quarter. I'm thinking that I need to designate a day to work on it each week to really make progress!
Finish the online mystery BOM top. I just have the last clue to complete!
Begin a pieced/embroidery project to keep the dust off of my embroidery skills!
Finish this little bib. I picked it up at a "sale" for less than a quarter. I figure it would make a good add on gift for a baby shower.
This is the fabric for a pieced, appliqué and embroidered project! I have it cut out; but, haven't started stitching!
I also need a new bag to carry my quilt projects. I have this bag of selvages to work with:
Sew another 50 yards from my stash during the year. I've been using fabrics from my stash; but, since I haven't completed much using them, I haven't listed where I am on that goal.
This is a lot for a list and many of the projects are hold overs from the first quarter. I'm okay with that. As long as I'm making progress, I don't mind having long lists! Also, I have found that if I am more specific about the result of the progress, I make more progress!
