I've never really been a list maker, which might explain my fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of ways. It's this little bit of my personality that drives Dave the Quilt Engineer nuts. I do things on a wing and a prayer, but recently, I've found myself needing to be a bit more grounded and focused on some tasks that need to be completed. So I made a list and have even crossed a few things off. I have to say, its felt pretty good.
Ever since I've started reading blogs, I've always enjoyed reading about other's "Quarter Goals" and the follow up posts at the end of the month. Fellow friends, you should pat yourselves on the back, you are pretty darn productive. So you have inspired me to join in and see what I can accomplish.
Luckily (for me), only two items really have dead lines.
1. A Hop Project For Paint Brush Studios
This little baby still needs pieced, bound and quilted.
2. Read With Me--A book shelf quilt
I have been asked by a family member if I would make a book shelf quilt for their MIL. I've always wanted to make the Read With Me quilt by Melissa Corry on Moda Bakeshop. Now I have the perfect excuse to make this quilt.
3. Mini Round Robin
I had hoped to have this one quilted by the end of September...it's basted, does that count? It needs to be a finish before this year slips past me.
4. Snowman Quilt
More details on this quilt very soon. It seriously just needs quilted and just might be my weekend project.
5. Stay up to date on the Meadow Mystery Quilt
I think that's pretty self explanatory. I don't want to be crying in January if I'm still on October's instructions.
6. Finish MOD Bear Paw Baby Quilt
I knew when I started this QAL with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts, I would fall behind, but that's okay. I'm giving myself to the end of the year to get it finished.
7. Piece at least six more blocks for my Moda Modern Building Block Quilt
Wow, it's been almost a year since I've worked on this one. I just want to spend a little bit of time with it so it knows it's still loved.
8. Finish piecing Pat Sloan's 2016 BOM My Secret Garden
Really I just have one more block and putting everything together...I can almost see the end.
9. Quilt Psychedelic Cat Lady
It's a bit embarrassing...this one should have been quilted and gifted MONTHS ago.
10. Charity Quilts for the Guild
Recently our guild was gifted several larges bags of fabric. I volunteered to take two panels home to quilt for baby quilts, so that we can donated them to a local women's aid charity.
11. Finish a UFO
I just want to finish a UFO. This is what I call Flirty Four Square, but any of my UFO's would work.
12. Quilt Ocean Sky
This is a quilt I pattern tested for Brianna at Iron and Needle back in January. I have a plan, I just need to get cracking.
13. Midnight Mystery
One of these deserves to be finished before the end of the year, right?
14. Small Gift for a Friend
This is something I pieced a few months ago that I am hoping to give to a dear friend of mine. Guess I can't gift it if I never finish it.
So, 14 goals in 3 months. Things should get interesting around here...wish me luck!
