August was a super busy family month, so there was not much quilting (or blogging) going on. However, I was able to finish my August goal which was to complete a floral quilt for my Sister-in-law. I named it Garden View.
Then I started a pink and purple quilt at the request of my sons. I was able to finish the top and it is now basted and ready to quilt.
So my September Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to finish this pink and purple quilt. Does anyone have a suggestion for a name?
I really hope that things settle down now that both Cheetah and Panda are in school (although Panda is only in school half day). However, I know that may take some time. Panda and Monkey both have birthdays and Cheetah is in soccer.
I need to get into a good quilting rhythm, because I just bought fabric for four quilts for my boys (hubby included) for Christmas. They all have minky on the back, and I bought more minky for my sons to make fuzzy pillow cases. I am so excited to work with new fabric, and not just fabric from my stash. :) Although the rhythm will be extra tricky, because I will need to work on these when the recipients are not around!
In addition to the four quilts for my boys, I also need to make one more lap quilt, some pillow cases, table runners, and hot pads for Christmas. Better get busy!
Have you started sewing any Christmas gifts yet?
