May / June Goals


PicMonkey Collage May 2018May flew by, but I did accomplish my goals!

May Goals:

  1.  Complete Clue #4, Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.  Yes!
  2. Complete Clue #5, assembling the top.  Yes!
  3. Make donation blocks (This month, Kat asks us to make blocks for her friend Briawna.)  Yes, I made a dozen, and they’re in the mail!
  4.  Make a low-ish volume baby quilt.  Yes, the Train baby quilt (in a post soon). 

I’m doing the smaller (63″ x 72″) Fawn Lake quilt, so I think it needs some 6″ borders to bring it up to bed size.  And I have the perfect fabric!

June Goals:

  1. Add borders to Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.
  2. Quilt and bind Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.
  3. Make Heart baby quilt.  (low volume)
  4. Make Anchor baby quilt.  (low volume)


We’re looking at a week of cooler weather here (whew!), so I’m excited to get started on my June goals.

Good sewing to you this month!

  1. I keep thinking about your month to month goals. I have overall goals and I do make progress, however I like the idea of having short term goals to achieve my overall goals. I do keep track of small accomplishments, though I don’t always write about them. I’ll have to think about it.

  2. These few, clear goals have really helped me. I have terrible amnesia about what I want to work on; out of sight is out of mind for me. I guess I could keep a paper list, but this is easy to check and makes me feel accountable.
