Are you tired of reading about my goal for August?

This was another HeartStrings donation top from the quilters at St. Mary's in CT. I had this one quilted but not bound before my I started my goal of 10 tops by the end of August.

I finished up the quilting on #10 yesterday and hope to get the binding done today so I can stitch on it tonight watching the Olympics.

All 10 tops are quilted, 8 quilts were bound (two I get to send back to their owners for binding) and I have one more binding to do. Not bad but I'm still not caught up so my plan is to go for another 10 tops quilted in September. I'm heading out of town on Monday for a week and then we'll be gone the first week of September so I may be overly ambitious here - we'll have to see.

I'm not tired at all of watching you go for your goal-- it gives me incentive to keep up with you. Doing customer quilts plus some donation quilts. And you're binding them-- so it's a great pace. I also love seeing how you quilt them-- keep that up.
