The Month of September & October Goals

Even though September was a busy family month I was much more productive.  I was able to completely finish two quilts and lots of little projects.  Plus a couple more things I haven't even blogged about.   ;)

Berry Pie was the first quilt I finished.  It was my September goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. 

It makes me so happy to see this quilt used frequently, and not just by my sons.  We all use this quilt!  (Even my hubby.) 

The second quilt I finished is the sneaky sewing for my husband.  I designed this quilt specifically for him, and I love how it turned out.  I call it "Bear Tracks."

My small projects included pillows, blankets, and a bag.  I wrote a tutorial for how I made the simple minky pillow cases... 

 And organized my scraps while discovering that I have used more than 200 yards of fabric this year. 

 Plus I turned a blanket...

Into a quilt! 

[More on that finish in my next post.] 

Holy Cow!  I am tired just thinking about it.  Because I also spent a lot of time celebrating! 

However, I was able to do some hand sewing during soccer practice and piano lessons. 

I now have one flower worth of squares done. 

I hope I can still do a lot in October.  My goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to make a Halloween quilt. 

Plus, I need to continue with my sneaky sewing for the three boys while disguising it with other projects. 

Wish me luck!



  1. You had a great September, Jasmine! That was an amazing amount of work, and keeping things secret always makes it feel like so much more effort to me. I hope you have a great October, too!

  2. Great month for you Jasmine :) I see that quilt on the wall again in these photos. I LOVE it!

  3. Very productive month. Every time I see your big star I want to make one of my own!

  4. That star quilt is fabulous! The swirl quilting is the perfect design - if that quilt was in my house I'd be snuggling with it too! :)

  5. You sure got a lot done! Congratulations I can't wait to see what you come up with for a Halloween quilt.

  6. Amazing finishes in the midst of celebrations! You don't really need luck but I am on your side! Happy Goal Sewing!!!
