Given that I dyed over 400 yards of fabric this month, I'm pretty pleased that I accomplished anything! I finished Stars At Sea.
And quilted 2 quilts for Mom.
My primary goal for August is to quilt and bind this baby quilt for a baby that's due in 2019. It will make me feel like I'm actually accomplishing things to have a gift read so early! I have a few veterans quilts that I'll try to get quilted but I'll be away half of the month and am taking my sewing machine with me. Maybe I can get the Antelope Canyon top together.
My starting goals for 2018 were:
Starting UFO 15
Finished YTD Goal 12
Started YTD Planned 6
Ending UFO Goal 9
Veterans YTD Goal 40
Here's where I stand at the end of July:
Starting UFO 15
Finished YTD 2 (Goal 12)
Started YTD 6 (Planned 6)
Ending UFO 19 (Goal 9)
Veterans YTD 8 (Goal 40)
Fabric Postcards 57
Pet Beds 2
Placemats - 4
Quilted for others - 2
There's no way I'll hit my UFO goal but I'm fine with that. Conceivably I can get it back to where I started the year and, given my dyeing schedule and arm injury, that will be a fine goal.
I hope you are making better progress on your goals!

I just, not ten minutes ago, expressed my astonishment at the fact that you dyed 100 yards of fabric you wrote about in a previous post. And then, THEN, I read this post and discover that it was actually 400!!!!!!!! The mind boggles.

I mostly use circles, ovals and straight edges. Quilters Apothecary has every circle in 1/2" increments and a great selection of ovals. I lile Lisa Calle's ProPebbles and straight edge. She also has a good selection of circles and curved cross hatching rulers. Other sources are Gadget Girls and DeLoa Jones. I use DeLoa's Boomerangs for urved cross hatching. There are others and they are all good!

I think you have accomplished a lot this past month! All that dyeing and ironing you have done, that is a lot of work and you still manage to get some quilts quilted! I still have not found my list from when I moved to the job I have now. I know I made some equipment covers that were not on the UFO list and stitched a bit on the JB quilt, but that's about it.

I love the antelope blocks. I am mostly attracted to linear patterns. Log cabin is my favorite. Curves are attractive to me and the fabrics you use make them very interesting.

I haven't done any quilting for the last several months. We decided to make the move from Michigan to Ohio, so lots and lots of time went into making the MI house ready to sell. It officially went on the market June 14, but we had and accepted an offer on June 12. Closing was July 19. Now I'm unpacking boxes and waiting for my new quilt studio to be built!! (We are converting an existing sunroom to a studio for me - I'm a lucky girl!) Hopefully within a month or so I'll at least get out some hand sewing or even find a corner to put up my sewing machine.
