August Goals

Seeing as we're almost (almost, yay!) in back to school mode here, I decided that it might be a good idea to write up my goals for August to keep me on track. I have a lot going on, with preparing the back to school stuff, trying to fit lots of activities/visits in for the kids before the summer holidays come to an end, and working on some requests for baby quilts & other items. As well as working with Cindy on some stuff for the Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland.

So I really need to keep a couple of my "own" projects uppermost in my mind so they don't get lost in there.

My August goal is very simple:

Finish my Swoon blocks. If I get them sashed and pieced into a quilt top, all the better. But I'll be happy with 9 complete blocks! I have 4 done already and am totally in love with them. 5 more to go, and 1 of those is cut. So it's definitely do-able!


If I'm very, very organsied, I'd love to get the final humoungous HST border on the Made to Measure quilt cut and the HST blocks trimmed. I think it would be too much to ask that I would get it pieced as well! This is my progress so far:


Linking up to Shanna and Melissa :-)

Beautiful blocks and quilt!

Your Swoon blocks are gorgeous and I adore your made to measure, they will both be stunning! I hope you get time to work on them :) One more month to go before the kids are at school here so I'm trying to maintain my sanity ;)

I found doing my blocks that you got two or three done together and then needed to have a break from them for a week. I'd say you will get them finished before the end of August. Still working on my scrappy ones, getting a bit done each day.
