Although it seems like October just arrived, the middle of the month is already upon us...crazy, isn't it? I have a few things I want to be sure and finish this month, so I thought listing a few goals here might keep me on track! I've actually been quilting quite a bit lately, finishing 5 quilts in the last three weeks. I've pieced two market quilts for Joanna, one market quilt for Camille, and I've also pieced my two new upcoming pattern releases. I'll be sharing all five of those quilts as soon as I can, but for now here are my October goals.
First, I want to finish my "On a Whim" quilt which I'm piecing using the grey dot from Happy Go Lucky, Moda Bella White, and a variety of Anna Maria Horner prints from my stash. I'm using 20 different prints and have just 4 1/2 blocks left to finish!
Next, I want to be sure and get a new bag and accessories ready to take to market. I've fallen head over heels for Moda's High Street and keep picking up little bits and pieces...first I ordered two mini charms...then a charm pack and some yardage, and then just the other day I found some fat quarters at a new "close to home" quilt shop.
I definitely want to finish my Schnibbles "Clover" quilt before the parade November 1st, and I also need to bind my new pattern quilts. So that's about it for October, after all, the month is already half over. I figure if I can get these quilts and projects finished up I'll be ready to turn my full attention to Christmas gift sewing in November.
Oh, and before I go I just had to share this picture Natalia sent me. She started quilting my Moda Bella solids quilt yesterday morning and posted progress photos on Instagram throughout the day. It was so much fun following along. I'll do a final blog post on this quilt and all of the specifics when it's home and bound...
Thanks so very much for stopping by!
PS I've got a post up on the Moda Cutting Table blog today with a few ideas for your Layer Cake Squares!
