Here is my quilt top that was my "One Monthly Goal" and one that I took to the retreat.
Color me Silly -
No you are not seeing double - There are two tops. Originally when I started to make this I wanted to increase it's size and make it a king size quilt for us. Long story and many years later I decided against it and wanted to just finish the top. However, when I was done there were a lot of extra cut pieces. My oldest daughter loves it, so I thought I'd make her a throw. Well.... there were so many extra pieces I made another complete top - AND.... I still have some pieces. I even have backing fabric for both. I usually never make a 2nd of a pattern. And I don't make two quilts with the same exact fabric. Guess this will be a first.
Another retreat project was Savannah Flair. I had all the blocks done, I just needed to assemble and put the border on.
It was supposed to have a couple more borders, but I just couldn't get anything to work so i put a small black border on and it will work great because I want to make this into a wall hanging.
This next one - was my 3rd quilt I took to the Retreat and it was a supposed to be a fast fun quilt.
I had all these strip quilts lined up.... Hmmm not so sure. Actually I will still do them but unlike cooking from scratch where you can add a little of this and little of that - strip quilts and log cabin quilts are not forgiving of minor discrepancies. It took me way too long here at home after the retreat to fix it. I will be doing my next one differently. *smile*
I finally got June's Bag Lady done...
And here is my July one - Not done but got a start on it.
I did work a little on "Simple Joy"
I thought I would get more done on this one but I didn't.
I have to say - it was very freeing to tell myself that all my stuff on my list were want to's not goals. And I have to say it ended up being a productive month. I completed 4 quilt tops a couple of small gifts and some embroidery. Not too bad. So what's next? I'll see you in my next post.
