August Goals: Recap

As usual, I published my goals at the beginning of August. Now it's well past time to recap them and see how I did.

  • Make the June block for Bee Inspired. Jen @ A Dream and a Stitch was the June queen and I didn't get her block done yet. I can make any block as long as I stick to this color palette. My plan is to get the block cut out today. I find that after I get the pieces cut for a block or a quilt, I make progress on it!
  • Quilt samples for an upcoming workshop. My sewing machine is back from the shop thank goodness, but I have yet to quilt my Peppermint Twist and Water Vortex samples.

  • Make a quilt for the Island Batik challenge for August. The Island Batik Great Outdoors Blog Hop was a huge success! I hope you took the time to visit the blogs of the participating Ambassadors and to enter their giveaways! I love the quilt I made for the hop!

  • Finish the binding on a quilt I'm making for my friend Alice. I'm so happy that I got this done! Granted it took the shop challenge to make me finally finish it, but I'm glad I did because it think it turned out wonderfully. I call the quilt Besties because that's what Alice is--my bestie.

I tend to use up scraps to make my quilt backings, and I really love how this one turned out! To read more about Besties, click here.

  • Write a pattern for Timeless Treasures. Dino Roar is done but not available yet.
  • Write a Ruby McKim pattern. Although I made some progress, this project has been put on hold for a bit.
  • Finish the design for my project for the Designer's Showcase. I am the featured designer at QuilterChic for September and I made the cutest project! The pattern is free through the end of the month. Read more about Monster Mash and how to get the free pattern by clicking here.
  • Cut fabrics for my Happy Go Lucky quilt. Sherry @ Yellow Cat Quilts is hosting the Happy Go Lucky sew along, and I wanted to join in the fun but I haven't gotten my fabrics cut! Ugh. I have picked them out though.

    So how did I do?

    There were 13 projects to complete in August and I got 5 done. That's 38% One of my worst months yet. Sigh.

    I hope I do better in September. Maybe all I need is encouragement or a time machine! <grin> Please come back on Monday when I'll post my September goals.
