August/ September Goals

Leave a comment

PicMonkey Collage AugustIt’s Labor Day weekend here in the United States.  It’s been chilly and rainy, and the cats and I are on our own, so it’s perfect for sewing.

I did pretty well on my goals, achieving 3/4 of them.  Layer Cake Explosion took a long time to assemble, and I may take a break from it for a few days.

August Goals:

  1. Finish piecing Layer Cake Explosion.  Yes!
  2. Continue with Pacific Stars.  Yes!
  3. Make Christmas wall hangings for my shop.  Yes!  Here.
  4. Make a scrap quilt for donation.  No.  This did not happen.


September Goals:

  1. Make back for Layer Cake Explosion.
  2. Make donation blocks for Kat’s September/October block drive.
  3. Continue with Pacific Stars Mystery Quilt.
  4. Customer quilt commission? (in the works)


2017-09-02 15.00.11I’ve already pulled the scraps for the donation blocks, so those should be done soon.  These blocks use lots of 3.5″ squares, and I have lots!

Good luck on your goals, and enjoy your sewing time.
