One Monthly Goal!

Hello Blogland:

This was my One Monthly Goal Post for August.  I didn't sew a single stitch in August so I am making it to my September One Monthly Goal.  I plan to finish quilting and attach the binding to Jodi's Lattice.  You've seen it before.  Here are some close ups of what the quilting is looking like but I still have a lot left on it.

I only have a small corner finished.  The rest of the quilt still looks like the picture below:

I have other goals too, but you have seen the projects before so I will just post my progress on them as I go.

Fun Quilter's Luncheon

Today was the "Grand Reveal" of what we did with the fat quarters I gave my friends for Christmas.  We all started with the same fabrics and ended up with beautiful projects.

Deb did a Bargello.

Faye did a Buggy Barn.

Lorna, my mother-in-law, did a Missouri Star Quilt Company star block.

Mariella made a table runner.

Theresa did this beautiful courthouse steps quilt.

She took a photo outside where we had our luncheon.  Notice the beautiful quilting!

You have probably all seen what I did with the fabric.  It still needs borders finished and quilted.

Linda didn't get a quilt made.  She is the most giving person in this entire world and probably did so much for everyone else that she didn't have time to do for herself.  She is my idol!

We call ourselves the "Priceless Quilters"  because our friendship is priceless and most of them live in a town called "Price".  We have sewn together and gone to quilt shows and classes for many many years.  Others have been a part of us but these are the ones that have really stayed together.  I don't get to sew with them monthly anymore because I work full time but I still join in on our Christmas quilt gift swap.

On our way home we stopped at Lorna's to see all her finishes for this year.  I guess she gave us a little trunk show that I will share with you.  By the way, she is my sweet sweet mother-in-law who is responsible for teaching me to quilt.  I love her so so so much!

Her Dear Jane is all quilted and ready to bind.  The quilting in her border is SPECTACULAR!  I should have my top done this year as well.  This was a project we all did together, and we all have ours in various stages.

I am SO IN LOVE with this peacock machine embroidery quilt!

The one below is a hand applique' Hawaiian Quilt.

The quilt below might not look like muh but if you could see it up close you would drool!  I just love the machine embroidery on the seam lines.

She has really gone to town on her 2017 finishes!  I am so proud of her!

One quilt bound - another one outline quilted!

Yippy!  I officially have my Stashbee quilt from two years ago completely finished!  It is called Flowering Snowball and has blocks from around the world.  I love it!  I know I showed that it was quilted a couple of days ago, but I wanted to show it again all bound.

This was my One Monthly Goal for July, my OPAM for July, and my Patchwork Times draw number for July.  Thank you blogland for giving me reasons to finish projects!

Here is a snippet of the back.

On a side note, I got Jodi's Lattice all outlined and ready to fill in with the pretty stuff.  I hope to have it done this week.

3 basted, my design wall, and grandbabies

I now have three quilts basted and ready to quilt!  Yay, progress one stitch at a time is a happy thought.  The blue quilt is my sister's but I designed it and sewed a row together.  The other two are mine and have been works in progress for many years.

Here is a block I made this morning.  It will go into a quilt for a friend for Christmas.  I just wanted to check my measurements before sewing all of the courthouse steps blocks together.

This photo should explain why I haven't gotten much done this summer.  I became a new grandma twice.  We got a little boy and then 5 weeks later a little girl.  They are like salt and pepper, a little cowboy and a little princess.

Flowering Snowball is quilted!

I just finished quilting "Flowering Snowball".  It was a Stashbee quilt and I absolutely love it!  I have decided that it can also be an eye spy quilt because there are a lot of hidden pictures in all of the many fabrics.

My neice, Abbey, came to visit for a week and she loves to sew quilts.  I gave her some of my old scraps and taught her how to make stars.  She is making the star quilt you see on my design wall.  It is fun to see her having fun with all of my old scraps.  She is only 12 by the way.

A neighbor brought over this beautiful white dress that she crocheted for my new grand daughter.  It is so beautiful and takes so much time.  Abbey is showing it in the photo.

Abbey took a picture of me.  I look pretty bad.  We didn't do makeup or hair today.
