A Finish!



I was able to pin baste three quilt tops at the quilt shop on Friday and actually get one quilted. I just did a straight stitch 1/4" line quilting. Really easy and fast. On the back I put a white flannel with black polka dots. All I have to do is wash her and she will be ready for the birthday girl.
I also started the quilting on Blooming Beauty and hope to get that finished and bound next weekend.

I finished all of my August goals! YAY!!!! I guess it is time to post September's goals.

September Goals:
1) Quilt & Bind "Blooming Beauty"
2) Quilt & Bind "Be Attitudes"
3) September's "GJ" Stitchery block
4) September's "Catalicious" stitchery
5) September's "Calendar Redwork"
6) September's "Redwork Basket"
7) 5 - "Life is Beautiful" blocks
8) 10 - "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" blocks
9) Sashing & borders on "Crazy Cat"
10) Sashing & borders on "Tisket a Tasket"
11) Lose 5 pounds

I think I will get started on that list now.

Everyone, please have a safe and healthy week!
