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
