October accomplishments, November goals

Here's how October went...I'm pretty happy with my progress.
1. Finish the One-up quilt. Done!  I'm really happy with how it turned out.

2. Finish the Charming baby quilt.  Done!  I've been lazy and haven't gotten the final post up yet, but it's done and sent out.

3. Send out the October and November Simply Solids Blocks.  Done!

14. Surprise mini (Christmas) - everything is done except the binding!  I really like how it turned out too.
15. Baby paper airplane quilt - all pieced. I didn't look at the airplane pattern closely enough before buying fabrics, so I ended up dying some of the pieces with tea to give them depth.

16. Baby quilt - undecided pattern/greens - I spent a lot of time thinking about this one and almost ended up with a Flying Dutchmen block.  But the the Urban log cabin tickled my fancy and I starting cutting before I could fourth guess myself.  (The last "log" still needs to be pressed open.)

17. Christen's T-shirt quilt - I've started ironing the interfacing and cutting the T-shirts

21. Quilt table runner (ideally by Thanksgiving) - done!  With loops like falling leaves.

22. Quilt pony quilt (ideally by Christmas) - started.  I'm doing cupcakes, faux-rainbows, and hearts in the main blocks.

For November, my top goal (and the goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes) is
1.  Finish quilting the pony quilt (pictured above).

My other top priorities are
2. Finish the surprise mini (bind)
3. Finish the top of the picture quilt

And the other things that are still on the list, hanging out:

4. make the wall hanging for office.
5. pretend to work on scrap quilt.
6. finish green coasters.
7. Aunt's throw. 
8. Pillow for family room.
9. Jeweled floors.
10. Lost piece (almost whole cloth quilt)
11. Baby girl daisy quilt
12. Baby paper airplane quilt
13. Baby quilt - undecided pattern/greens
14. Christen's T-shirt quilt
15. Simply solids green quilt

  1. My goodness, you have managed to achieve a lot! Well done ;-)

  2. Aack, I'm tired just reading your list. Enjoy!

  3. You make my head spin with all you do! wow.

  4. Love the charming baby quilt, I can't wait to see the picture of thr whole quilt. I love the gray background with the colors you picked!

  5. My list is also long. So, I have only one goal per month. :-) I like your Baby paper airplane quilt a lot

  6. Wow! You've got some gorgeous finishes and plenty more to be going on with! I'm looking forward to seeing you move through your list :)

  7. Your list is HUGE, wow and you're chipping away at amazing speed. I've got a t-shirt quilt to make for my son but it keeps getting on the back burner.
