August Lovely Year of Finishes

A Lovely Year of FinishesMelissa of Fiber of Sorts is hosting a "A Lovely Year of Finished 2013".

This is such a wonderful way to get those UFOs completed along and sharing with others desiring to do the same.

These are a couple of my projects that I want to have completed by August 31st. If you have been following my posts you know that I have started to follow Madame Samm's plan for time management. Each day I list 3 things that I would like to complete the following day. All I can say is "It's working for me!" You can read up on it here.

So here is what I would like to finish this month and I feel confident that I can do it!

I have been free motion quilting each block. It has been taking me at least one day to quilt each block since the designs are feathers, grids and lines. Hopefully, there will be a day or two I can complete more than 1 block per day. I will be so happy when this quilt is done! I am ready to work with different colors!

Another want to finish in August is at least a 1set each of Raggedy Anns and Andys, one size 15" and the other 20".

It may not seem like much to complete in one month but I have to squeeze my sewing/quilting projects with my accounting business and it is happening at budget time with a couple of my clients.

Thanks for stopping by.  
I appreciate hearing from all the wonderful quilters/sewists!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors in that quilt. Can't wait to see it all quilted, what a treasure.

  2. Joanie, I so appreciate this post! I'm headed back to school soon and we DO have to be intentional about creating balance between work and quilting. PS>>>I use to sew bunnies! Dolls are fun to make!

  3. You may wish you were done with the quilting but your results are fantastic. From the looks it's well worth the effort. Great job!

  4. Fun projects! Sure know what you mean by wanting to get something finished so you can look at new colors. :) Sure love those dots, though. It'll be a great UFO finish. And the dolls!! how cool :D
