Getting It Done Challenge--August

This is what I wrote June 30th...my goals for July.

So what will I do for July?
I'm trying to focus on the projects in the works and on getting some quilting done. These 2 quilts already have the backing and binding done and the batting is cut to size. The bobbins are even wound.  I'm really trying not to start any new projects.

How did I do?
  • I completed the mystery step--bottom right in photo. I didn't touch the BOWs.
  • Quilted Orca Bay-still needs binding--top right.
  • I quilted The Ultimate Scrap Quilt Lke Julie's--bottom left.
  • I made 15 Pineapple Crazy Blocks--top left.
I think I did pretty darn good.  Still need to set up the machine to do the binding. That's not going to happen today.  And that not starting anything new??? Failed that one. I started the Log Cabin-snicker snicker.

August Goals

  • Judy L's mystery step for the month
  • 5 more Pineapple Crazy blocks
  • Bind Ocra Bay and TUSQLJ
  • Quilt 1 UFO quilt
  • Work on Reach For The Stars
  • Work on Grandmother's Choice blocks
See how others are doing on their list at Patchwork Times.

Very good ESPECIALLY with the great summer weather we've been having in Washington! So tempting to be outside :D Beautiful quilts that you have been finishing!

You didn't mention your quiling helper. Great to finish your Orca Bay. You can rest awhile before the next Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I like Judy L's Back to Square One. Pineapples and Log Cabins. Not on my list...lol!
