My June Goals

It’s halfway through the month but that doesn’t mean I don’t have goals! <grin>

  • Make progress on a quilt for my daughter. I’m making a Star Trek quilt for my daughter’s graduation, breaking it down into monthly steps as a challenge hosted by the quilt store where I work. The step this month was to make two of the applique blocks.

  • Make a quilt or other project that uses a new to me technique for the June Island Batik challenge. I’ve been quilting for over 20 years so this one’s a toughie. However, I’ve never done a hexie quilt so that might just be the ticket.

  • Make progress on the January Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop challenge I made the modest goal last month of trying to finish appliqueing all the birds and leaves but didn’t get to it so I’ll try again this month.

  • Make two Bee Inspired blocks. I only have two more blocks to make for my bee buddies and I hope to get them done this month. The first is a house block for Janice @ Color Creating and Quilting and the other are two brick blocks for Kate @ Smiles From Kate. I didn’t get to these last month but I will.

  • Write two new patterns for Island Batik. I had three quilts in the Island Batik Spring Market booth, so I needed to finalize the three patterns and get them ready to sell. I’ve got one done, one underway, and one more to write.

  • Create a pattern for Hancock’s of Paducah. Hancock’s of Paducah has selected one of my patterns to kit, so I need to write that one asap.

  • Host two blocks for the Sew Let’s QAL. Block 7 was released Tuesday, June 4th and you can read about it here. Block 8 will be released this Tuesday. Be sure to come back and see my version of the block and to learn where you can download the pattern!


It’s not too long a list but long enough!
