I was trying to decide what I could type to spell the sound the wind makes as it blows by you. I couldn't decide but I sure feel August has blown by at a rapid speed. Luckily I may have time to squeeze one more small quilt in before the month ends if I really focus on what I'm doing. (I'll let you know next week if I succeed.) I'm sorry to report the temps are hovering back in the 90s again. At 6:30 tonight it was 91. Good Grief. We're looking for relief after Wed. Back to Quilty stuff:
Here's the goal's list from last week.
✅Bind August UFO Challenge Quilt - Done!
Continue working on challenge piece inspired by a card - really no actual progress but I've thought about it a bit more.
✅Quilt top from quilt guild - Finished after several days of trying to figure out what I wanted to do.
✅Make a few Picket Star Quilt blocks - ok, honesty here: I sewed pieces of one together and cut out another half block so not a whole lot of progress.
Forgot to add ✅make composition book covers. - I need to make 12 composition book covers over the next month. 1 is done, 1 is started...
Here's the finished August UFO Challenge Quilt. I showed it two weeks ago with the backing fabric I picked. (Nann - thanks bunches it worked really well.)
This quilt is less than 40" wide by about 54" long. (That may be off a bit I was typing from memory and that is always questionable!) It will be donated through my quilt guild to someone.
Here's my plan for this upcoming week.
Make some composition book covers
Continue working on challenge piece inspired by a card
Finish sewing Ombre log cabin blocks together in columns
Sew one Picket Star top together (I have enough for 2.)
Start on Sept UFO challenge piece.
Another off list item I started working on last week was sewing the Ombre Log Cabin blocks into columns. I'm setting them on point so think of those columns as leaning. Here's what they looked like before I started sewing them together.
The squirrel came back to visit again this week but he didn't sploot. Nancy who blogs at Wyoming Breezes sent me a link to her local paper that talked about splooting squirrels. Fun to see the word is spreading. (If you don't know splooting you can read last week's Monday post for the meaning and see "our" squirrel doing it.)
I'm done for the night but first Linky parties. Enjoy some surfing time this week.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
