July Finishes and August Goals

Another month has flown by! It goes even faster when you spend a good chunk of it out of town. Totally worth it though!

Here are my goals for July:

1. Top of the list is to quilt and bind the first sister quilt. DONE and delivered!


2. Since little Lincoln is here, I am going to make a label for his baby quilt. I made this last fall out of shirts worn by my son, my hubby, and my dad. DONE and delivered!


3. I would also like to get the 16 patch quilt finished for the guest room. DONE!

4. I would like to decide on a pattern for the second sister quilt. Not done. Not even an idea as of yet.

5. I would like to make a small quilt out of my leader ender HSTs. DONE!

6. I want to decide on my next leader/ender project. Not done. I am not sure why it is so hard to decide on something this simple! I am guessing it is because I want to come up with a bigger project this time.

Now, what else did I accomplish?

I finished this second quilt for Lincoln.


And I started two new projects, my EPP  project:

Time to plan for August.

1. I want to finish my scrappy lattice blocks and perhaps get them into a finished top.

2. Since my little Liam liked brother’s quilt so well, I plan to make him a quick quilt with a soft backing.

3. I am again going to try to come up with a plan  for Sister Quilt #2.

4. Still want to come up with a good leader/ender project.

I feel like I haven’t had enough time in the sewing room lately to even decide what I truly want to work on next so these goals don’t seem like much to me.  I hope to remedy that in the next week. But hubby came home from his business trip last night so it won’t happen today! Have a great weekend!

    That quilt out of shirts really calls to me. Everything you do is great, but that one made me stare–for quite a while! : )

    I love looking at all you accomplish! Explain about your enders and leaders! I don’t understand.

    Perhaps not having too tight a goal list for August might mean there’s some sort of spontaneous project about to emerge! I’ve just amazed myself by making a cushion cover within a day of thinking up the idea and the design – there wasn’t even time to add it to a to do list! Have great weekend.

    I’d say you were quite productive in the month of July considering you traveled, etc. There will be times that you feel you haven’t been in the sewing room as much as you’d like, BUT you have been spending time with loved ones and that more than makes up for it.

    Congratulations Katy, you have had a very productive month! Love your Hapi 16 patch.
