November was busy for me, but a happy month celebrating Thanksgiving with my family. I hope you had a great month too!
Time to see how I did on my goals.
Make my bee blocks for Bee Inspired. Well, this is a bad way to start. I didn’t make progress on any of my bee blocks but after I get my December quilts done, they are the next priority so hopefully Karen, Irene, Janice and Kate will still be happy when they finally receive them.

Make a quilt for the Island Batik challenge for November. Squeaked this one in at the end! You can read all about my log cabin quilt here.
Write up a new pattern for Timeless Treasures. I’ve actually written two patterns for free download, but neither one is up on their site just yet. Watch my blog as I’ll be announcing them soon and providing a link to the pattern!
Write up a new pattern for a Timeless Treasures collection. Got this one done as well! It’s a pattern for fabrics to be released in January. You can look for the pattern here, and also as a kit through Hancock’s of Paduckah! <grin> The pattern is in testing but watch for it here soon.
Add the applique to my Fall into a Quilt Along quilt I got this one done too! I needed to add applique to my top to commemorate the quilt along and show off the final result by the Grand Prize announcement. See the final quilt top in all it’s glory and read more about it here.
Create three new quilts for Island Batik. Three of my designs will appear in the Spring/Summer 2019 catalog, so I needed to make three quilts for their Spring Market booth and a traveling trunk show by the end of December. I’ve made some good progress—everything is patterned and cut and block making is underway. I’m not as far along as I wanted to be because of the flu (ugh) but I’m doing okay.
Here’s a sneak peek at the colors in one of the collections I’m working with.
So let’s see how I did. There were 12 projects and I got 5 done. That’s 42%. Hmmmm. Three of those projects were the December quilts and I can’t say I actually thought I’d get any of them done by November, but I did hope to get them underway and I accomplished that. So if we remove them from the mix, that’s 9 projects to do and 5 done. That’s 55% and I can live with that! <grin>
Stay tuned for my December goals!
