July Goals Met!

Yippeeeee! All of my July's sewing goals were met!

X1) Quilt Angel quilt
X2) Quilt & Bind Polka Dot Girls
X3) Borders on Bloomin Beauty
X4) Borders on CK's NI quilt
X5) Piece backing for CK's NI quilt
X6) July's "Gardeners Journal"
X7) July's "Calendar Redwork"
X8) 4-"Life is Beautiful" stitcheries
X9) Stitch 3 "Tisket a Tasket" blocks
X10) Finish red/white 10-patches
X11) Start paper piecing my NI borders (1 side done)

Below is a new redwork project I am doing for my mom. My cousin brought me the pre-printed panels and I just need to stitch them. So nice not to have to transfer the design onto the fabric. I plan on doing one a month or more depending on how other ongoing projects are going.
Here is my Polka Dot Girls all quilted! I practiced my free motion skills I learned at a class.
The last thing I finished is my July's Calendar Redwork BOM. Time to drive over to the quilt shop and pick up August's block.
Time to list August's goals.

1) Pin baste "Blooming Beauty"
2) Paper piece 3 borders for "Nearly Insane-ish"
3) Gardener's Journal block for August
4) Calendar Redwork block for August
5) 4 - Life is Beautiful Stitcheries
6) 2- Catalicious Stitcheries
7) 1- Redwork Stitchery
8) 10 - Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Blocks
9) Start sashing red/white 9-patches

You rock girlfriend! I'm afraid if I set goals for myself, I'll not only stifle my creativity, but I'll feel rebellious and go do something insane like... garden or cook instead. LOL

Fiesta said...

wow Yvette, you have been busy again and your August goals are just as extensive. I need not see the Vintage Valentine goal in there? It's ok, you can still sqqqqqqquuuuuuuueeze it in.LOL

Terry said...

Congratulations on getting all your July goals done! Love the Polka Dot Girls quilt. Those fabrics are just lovely! :0)

Julianne said...

Wow Yvette, very impressive........when do you sleep???

Karen said...

You are my quilting hero!! Good for you and I am sure you will complete all your August goals too. Love the new redwork and the Polka-Dots Girls turned out just wonderful! I'm working on 'My Sewing Chair' block right now.

I think you must have cloned yourself and that's how you're getting so much done!

I can't believe the list of projects for the future. Well, I can, actually, because:

1. It's on Yvette's blog, who not only has such a list but will get it done!
2. There's a somewhat similar (in length) list in my sewing room. (However, I'm not EVEN fooling myself into thinking I'll have my list done any time soon!

You've inspired me again! Have a great week!!

Well done on ticking off your items on the list.
August's looks just as daunting.
