Q3 Goals

So I am going to attempt to list my goals, attempt to finish them, and then post them!  Last quarter I did have some finishes but I didn't get to blogging about them yet. That is in the works.

I like to know what I have in the works to try to keep myself focused and finish those that I start up.  I did clean up the sewing room yesterday and realized (not that I had forgotten) but I have a lot started and I have bought some more very pretty fabric recently and I need to keep sewing it up!

1.  Churn dash quilt- This quilt is together and I bought thread to match each section. Need to make a back and quilt it up.

2.  Batik scrap - this is now a top and needs a back and quilting.  This was the third quilt made from the same stack of batiks and will be a donation quilt.

3.  Simply Mini Quilt - Right now am planning a Dresden plate in modern fabrics.  This one is in the beginning planning stage and is due to ship mid October.

4.  Mini 9 patch in Cotton and Steel- These are super cute at 3 1/2" and not sure how many or what the final layout will be but they are cute.
5.  Low Volume Plus Swap-I did an online swap and had this block for my turn in a bee.  I have all the blocks and want to put this one together.  They are ready to be laid out.  These are only the ones from the bee.  So pretty.
6.  Tula Pink- Yes it needs to remain on this list and really hoping for some motivation to sew this one up. And I sure do have one missing block that I never made.

7.  Botanics-Precious Sew-Along- I picked the fabric and tested the block but want to spend some time with this stack of fabric because I love it.  Now I need to start cutting since I have my plan.

Seriously, I think that is enough.  I don't sew nearly as much in the summer as I do in the fall/winter. We have lots going on as always but with one son on his own and the other leaving for college in the fall I am hoping I have more time to sew.  However, the hubby does like to hang out with me and unfortunately not in the sewing studio.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday and On The Windy Side for the Q3 Goals.  I am coming up right under the wire.  Thanks for reading!


  1. Your projects are all so pretty, Beth. And your Tula Pink quilt looks amazing!!! Looking forward to seeing your finishes. :)

  2. I look forward to seeing how you put your plusses together. I wish I had done more for the swap - I only have 12 - so I'll have to make some more.

  3. I look forward to seeing your progress. I like all your projects especially your nine patch and plus quilts.

  4. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article. I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to start my own BlogEngine blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a fine example of it. heather grey fabric
