I'm a little late with goals. I needed time to rest from the weekend and then we had some really bad storms roll thru which made me power down a lot of items for safety. The good thing about them is the much needed rain and it will drop our temps and humidity.
I am keeping my goals light as I will be using the month to prepare for a very booked next few months. I even took my calendar apart so I could spread those months out for a better look.. I have more items to fill in as I go thru my paperwork and notes. Really scarey when you can almost see the end of the year - I thought it just started!
For my Let's Book It project I will be using this Shnibbles book. And although I could use scraps, I have the need to play with some new fabric. Well, actually this layer cake has been in that LC tote for a while.
This book is nice as it has the large and small version of each quilt pattern. I am going for the small version and hopefully can at least get it to the flimsy stage.
This month's RSC15 color is INDIGO with the option to use black. Since we've had 2 blues already, indigo would make my projects a little heavy on the blue side and I really don't like to make heavy black blocks - especially in charity quilts. So I may go for deep purple instead. But these may be a back burner project depending on my time.
This will come in handy as I have a lot of temporary hanging sleeves to add to some quilts as well as check my labels with the possibility of some being replaced with better ones. There will be bindings to do, also. I have some other booked handquilting demos and will using my star quilt and the melon blocks again. Those might be done by the end of the year.
I had a special request to make a Princess quilt for a classmate of one of my grandsons. This is actually sandwiched and ready for quilting. You can read the story HERE. This is a MUST finish.
I have been booked for an April bag making class. Yes, I make bags. But I have to have a prototype done up by Sept 1st so they can show it to the guild for sign ups. This is a specialty designed quilter's project bag to their requests - one of a kind. It's all drawn up and sections tested. It should be fun, but I HAVE to get that bag made!
And since my Juki is in the shop for at least 2 weeks, I drug my old back up Brother out and it DID NOT WORK. I couldn't get it to go - I had trouble with it in the past - and it would cost more to fix (if at all) than it's worth. So I bought this little cutey. Plain, simple, a piecer with a sweet stitch and just a few extras on it. For anything heavy or complicated, I can borrow my Mom's Bernina (which she hates and doesn't use) or use my SIL's Singer.
May your August be as bright as a Sunflower,
