August accomplishments, September goals

I made some nice progress in August. :)

1. Finish the T-shirt quilt. Done!  And the recipient loved it!
2. Finish the Countdown and rocket pattern.  Done!

3. Cut out everything for the one-up quilt.  Not only did I get everything cut up, I got it all put together.  I just started quilting the first cloud even.

7. Aunt's throw.  I have a design and started cutting up the squares.

11. Charmed baby quilt (October).  I have the pieces cut out and four seams sewn together.

14. Surprise mini (Christmas).  Quite a bit of progress has been made, but I can't show any of it.
15. Baby paper airplane quilt.  Well, I got the fabric for the sky.  I also tried some fabric tea dying because I didn't look at the pattern close enough and realized I needed at least two, if not three, different shades of the same color for the airplanes.  I was really hoping to use some patterned fabrics, so I'm going to try darkening some and see how it works.

And for September...can you believe it's September already??
1. Finish the One-up quilt.  This is my Lovely Year of Finishes goal. So far I have one cloud quilted....and a lot of quilting to go.

Other things I'd really like to try and finish...

3. Send out the September Simply Solids Block

4. make the wall hanging for office.
