August progress and September goals
My goals for August were simple. I knew I'd be gone for 2 weeks so my goals had to be modest:
- Finish the puppy quilt top and get backing fabric ready
- quilt 4 more veterans quilts
- work on 4th of July quilt
- plan a project for another of my UFO items. I'm feeling some placemats coming on from a set of orphan blocks.
I'm pleasantly surprised that I actually got all of these things done! The puppy quilt top was the big accomplishment. It can now move to the to-be-quilted pile. I also quilted 4 more veterans quilts and have completed my personal goal of 40 for the year.
In September I will be working mostly on the sample quilts that I'm making for Paula Nadelstern. I can't share those until November so I'm going to set aside a little time each day to work on some easy projects like dealing with the things that I pulled out in August and also working on the 4th of July quilt. It's "easy" because everything is cut and planned and ready to sew. I can make progress on that with 15 minutes a day.
Here are the stats for the year so far:
Starting UFO 16 (15 in 2018)
Finished YTD 4
Started YTD 3
Ending UFO 15
Veterans quilts made - 7
Veterans quilts quilted - 40
Fabric Postcards - 57
Pet Beds 6
Quilted for others - 1
Goals for September:
- Paula Nadelstern quilts
- do something with the leaf print blocks
- do something with the floral applique blocks
- start making Christmas cards
- maybe grout the new mosaic sections of the weather and time permits

Good job on hitting your goals. There is always more to do though! LOL!! My focus this month is to get the flannel quilt done and to work on the 16 patch block quilts again. All the baby quilts that I have made are spoken for! Yikes!

I'm happy that I won! I'm looking forward to seeing all my luscious 'waste' fabrics. Thanks for offering such a generous giveaway of your beautiful fabrics. I love the embroidery blocks. I'm sure you'll come up with creative settings for those and the appliqued flower blocks! Thanks again, Vicki!
I care! Knowing you report and linking up when you had a link up kept me busy whittling down my unfinished projects! I remember how long my list was, and how unfocused I was each month. It’s so much easier to make progress with a short list and goals.

I finished four projects this month. One was my small group challenge for August and one from a challenge spot later in the year. That means I move another UFO to a WIP spot. The other two finishes were for charity and for my mother-in-law. Woo hoo!
