Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

One Monthly Goal for September

One Monthly Goal for September

This quilt was a 2011 BOM called Henrietta Whiskers from Bunny Hill Designs. I really liked this quilt, but life got in the way and I didn't get to finish it.  I am so hoping to finish the applique and borders this month so I can get it quilted next month just in time for the season!

One Monthly Goal for August

OMG for August is the same as OMG for July!

I really had high hopes for finishing this quilt in July but I didn't quite make it.  I started out with a small daisy, all over design and quilted it more densely than I had planned, so it took me longer to quilt.  I just have to finish quilting the sewing machines and the irons rows and then do the borders.  Hopefully, this will be hanging on the wall in my sewing room by the end of this month!

July Block for Starry Bright Sky QAL

Block One
These blocks were a joint effort with my daughter-in-law.
After spending a full week working on this block, I finally asked my daughter-in-law to help.  She is good at figuring out things like this. She likes a challenge. Lucky for me! LOL We worked many hours on this one before finally coming up with this design.  I know it isn't the star design, but this is as close as we could get. LOL

Block Two
We worked another day on this one.  I have to give her all the credit for both of these blocks.  All I did was the prep work on the strips! She did the rest. We looked at a lot of on line videos until she was able to make the cubes.  I honestly don't think the cubes were any easier and neither does she! Wow, they are finished!

2018 Mid-Year Review

What I am working on now.

Linking up with Yvonne at QuiltingJetgirl for a mid year look at my 2018 goals.

I tried to make my goals real and attainable.  Some days it is difficult, but I think I am pretty much on target.  See my comments in red below.

2018 Planning

Using my new planner, I have chosen 3 main goals for the year.

1. Empty garage of all moving boxes - I have been moved in for a year now and still have a 3 car garage full of boxes!  Oh my!  I am hoping to get one box emptied each day until it is done. I also plan to take before and after pics.
While I haven't emptied a box a day, I have averaged that by emptying more on other days.  I am just about half way through.  I did take pictures but I had a computer glitch and lost them. 

2. Sort all fabric - That seems to be a never-ending project but I have decided to start each week with a reasonable goal for sorting fabric for the week with before and after pics.  I forgot to  mention that I still have fabric in containers in the garage! Oh my!  
I am making progress with my stash but I don't know if I will be where I would like to be at the end of this year.

3.  Keep house clean - Now, my house isn't dirty, but I like to keep a handle on things and I figure if I make a plan, then I can work it around my quilting and I reference Cynthia Brunz's blog title "Quilting is more fun than Housework!"  I can assure you that I'd rather be quilting!
I am slowly working into a routine to keep the house clean with minimal effort so I can concentrate on my quilts and fabric stash!

Well, I have all of this written in my Quilters' Planner so lets's see how I manage everything.
It did help to write things in my Quilters' Planner.  I hope to do better with it next year.

I wish everyone their best in keeping up with their goals.
