It's time to establish my goals for September. I haven't been doing too well on my goals lately, but at least I have them I guess. I'm going to try to get more goals done this month. Wish me luck!
Here are my goals for September:
Make the June block for Bee Inspired. Jen @ A Dream and a Stitch was the June queen and she said we could make her any block. I think it's that freedom that's been holding me up. Once I make a plan, things seem to go faster. Anyway, I've decided to make her one of my block designs, using the color palette she's chosen.
Make the July block for Bee Inspired. Susan @ Seven Oak Street Quilts was the July Queen and she wants a mushroom block in these colors. I don't have a lot of modern fabrics like the ones shown, but I'm sure I can come up with something.
Make the August block for Bee Inspired. Karen @ Tun-Na Quilts, Travels, and Eats was the August queen and her block looks like this. I love that she chose orange!
Make the September block for Bee Inspired. We have two queens for September, so you can see why I must make my bee blocks a priority. Irene @ Patchwork and Pastry is one of the queens, and she'd like a skinny log cabin block in white and red.
Make the second September block for Bee Inspired. Janice @ Color Creating and Quilting is the other September Queen for Bee Inspired and she'd like a block that combines her two favorite blocks--a house block and a star block. She wants house blocks that are all in one color, like these. Aren't they cute?
Make a quilt for the Island Batik challenge for September. The challenge for Island Batik Ambassadors for September is to make a quilt with stars in it. I'm looking forward to this one! I've got a design and a fabric collection for my quilt--Paisley Dot!
Write up a few new patterns for quilts I've designed. I'm going to be featured at Always in Stitches in October (the shop where I work) and there are a few quilts I'd like to have in the trunk show so I'm writing up patterns for them. This will be so cool!
Cut fabrics for my Happy Go Lucky quilt. Sherry @ Yellow Cat Quilts is hosting the Happy Go Lucky sew along, so I need to get the fabrics cut and make a few blocks this month.
Make the two September blocks for the Fall into a Quilt Along One of these is already done because it was released on September 4th--a Postage Stamp Turkey. Click here to learn where you can get the pattern. Then come back on September 18th to get the next block. I wonder what it will be...<grin>
I've got to do better on my September goals so give me some encouragement if you can. I'm going to be away a bit in October to celebrate my anniversary so I need to knock off a big chunk of my to-do list.
