Knocking things off my List

Well August is almost gone, so hard to believe and my kids will be back in school day after Labor Day.  Hopefully, I will get a little more sewing time in on the weekends again.

My to do list for August has served me well with keeping me on task for getting some things checked off and done.  (that's the best part of making a list).

I finished my Heart Wedding Quilt.  Check out the full post if you would like more details.  It has been wrapped and delivered.  I love it!

I have made all 12 of the Fussy Cut Square Blocks.  These are too cute and really fun to make.  I will be sending them off at the end of this week.

I was also able to get the 6 blocks for section 2 in the Tula Pink City Sampler.  This definitely has not been easy for me to stay up to date with but hoping that I can get at least to the half way mark in September.

Here are the blocks 1-35.  This is a lot of color and a little blurry!

Here is my list to finish up this week and I will be making a new list for September as well.
My August to do List
1.  Quilt and Bind - the Heart Wedding Quilt
