October goals accomplished


It's certainly easy to meet goals when they are not very challenging. With my breast cancer walk this coming weekend and my son's wedding the following weekend my only two quilting goals for October were to finish my donation quilt for Quilt Pink and this quilt for myself.

I put the final stitches in the binding this afternoon so I'm all done! It's nice and toasty with a flannel back and it will go up to Minneapolis for use in our temporary apartment in November.

I've got the movers coming on October 30 to see how much stuff they'll have to pack - I need to finish culling through my studio so they'll be able to accurately assess packing materials and cost. So as much as I'd like to load another quilt I'll hold off until after the 30th.

I like being able to hang my quilts up to take the pictures but notice that sometimes they don't always hang completely straight using the clips on the curtain rod. This one looks a little wavy but it's the way it's hanging not the quilt which squared up nicely before binding.

Although my layout and borders are different from Bonnie's pattern, the blocks and inspiration came from her Pineapple Blossom quilt.

Wonderful, colorful quilt. I love the little touches of purple. And it looks perfectly straight to me.

I think it's good to scale back your goals when you have other life events going on-this quilt is certainly gorgeous Mary! way to go to have a new snuggle quilt for the new apartment.

Gosh! I had to go back and catch up, I haven't been here in awhile! I guess I didn't realize you were moving. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Honestly, I love Minnesota, but then again, I love snow too. The cities are such a beautiful place. If I ever had to move to a large city, they would be at the top of my list!

I had a good time catching up on your blog. The autumn quilt is lovely! I have been avoiding my quilt blogs since I cannot sew right now. It depresses me! But since we are in the home stretch of our house project, I thought I would start taking peeks!

Your quilt looks lovely.
You are good with your knitting needles to I see, and your little dog looks happy.
Good luck with the walk !
