Adventures in Fabric Art

Getting It Done in September and October

1 Comment

The September goals really focused me this month.  I accomplished all of them.  Well, I was a little weak on the Oh My Stars Christmas quilt(s), but I had used the verb “revisit”, and I did revisit it.  I found it in its gym locker where it had marinated for two years.  I put the stars up on my design wall.  I unsewed some stars made with a white fabric that just wasn’t working, and I looked over the original directions and tried to remember what in the world I had been planning to do next.  I think that’s “revisiting”.


In addition, I also made 32 Quilt of Valor blocks, and I made a throw quilt from a batch of string blocks I had laying around, and got started with the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt.

September Goals

1. Quilt and bind Coffee Quilt.

2. Make some fall wall hangings for my shop.

3. Make a small art quilt from a vacation photo.

4. Revisit my Oh, My Stars UFO.

October Goals

1. Piece and quilt Oh My Stars throw quilt for shop.

2. Piece and quilt OMS throw quilt for myself.

3. Step 2 of Scrapitude Mystery Quilt

4. Several Xmas wall hangings for shop

I’ll make up both Oh My Stars quilts if I can get interested in it again.  If not, I may substitute a UFO for the second one.

How are you doing with your goals?

I’m linking up with Getting It Done at Patchwork Times.
