OMG October from Urban Quilter

Quilting in progress, Sept. 2021
My #onemonthlygoal for October (which ties into my goal of finishing 7 in-progress quilts) is to finish my blue string quilt. I started quilting it at my guild retreat in September and finished about 2/3 of it. I need to finish quilting it, then get it bound.

Finish #4 of 7 from Urban Quilter

Flower Boxes Quilt

I am continuing to make progress on my goal of finishing 7 of my in-progress quilts by the end of the year. This quilt was made from a Moda jelly roll (Sew & Sew by Chloe's Closet) which I won as a door prize at a guild retreat a few years ago. I added the lavender fabric for the border but otherwise this is just the jelly roll. The pattern was super quick to put together, though as is often the case arranging the blocks in a way that I was happy with took longer than actually ...

Goal for 2021 from Urban Quilter

 

I have 9 quilts currently in progress, 6 of which are at the point of needing quilting. I have begun quilting a couple of them, but they all still have a good amount of work to be done. One (the house quilt, which was my June AND July OMG) is finally quilted and needs the binding finished.
I have set it as a goal for myself to complete as many of these 7 quilts as I can before the end of 2021. 
Completing all 7 of them is ambitious, but seems possible over the next 3 months as I have ...

September goals from Espritpatch

  I really doubt my sewing machine will make it out of her box before the end of the month sadly, my sewing space is nowhere near ready to be set up and there are much bigger priorities to deal with. Maybe I will at least find the time to work on some hand sewing projects, as long as I can locate the necessary supplies....

New Beginnings... from From the Strawberry Patch...

At this time of year, with graduations and end-of-school-year excitement,  my mind always travels back to those "last" days when I was young. There was so much anticipation of what was to come, what great things awaited, those things that were always just out of grasp and view. I ran across this photograph the other day. This was my graduation day from Vermont College in 1973. Mr. G and were just

Another small project - Fun and Done from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

...from another online class!

FWIW, online classes are a necessity given our current global pandemic state. I know I've mentioned that I'm not necessarily a fan, but remember when I said how much I clicked the "Buy Now" button? This was the result of one of those moments.

I've done some collage work and while I like it, I think my technique can be improved. I subscribe to Emily Taylor's (Collage Quilter) (NAYY) newsletter and she offered in... November? December? a free online class showing how to use her method to create her Winter Cardinal pattern ...

March goals from Espritpatch

 March, really? Well, after over 2 months of all of us at home (working and schooling), we should finally get a minimal sense of normality again when the kids return to school on 8th. It will so good for everyone really. They will finally have proper lessons again and mix with their peers and their teachers. They desperately need the interactions and the education. As for us, we will have a breather during their school day and it should be much easier to concentrate on a task without interruptions. Not too mention that the amount of cooking I will need ...

February goals from Espritpatch

 February is a short month and we have birthdays in the house so it would be prudent not to plan too much! Or maybe to have a varied list to see what takes my fancy?

Quilting:

1. Super Mario quilt - I think I still need 2 more blocks
2. Halo quilt sew along - I need to cut the arcs to be able to continue
3. 
Boho Heart quilt-along - a brand new one quilt-along starting today! 
4. Snowflake quilt-along - needs quilting
5. Modern HST triangles -  I have 23 blocks completed and not enough background fabric to make the 24th block ...

My Goal Planning on Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre


 So after writing last week's post on SMART goal setting, I had a good idea on how to go about it.  Now I just had to sit down and do it!!  hmmmmmmmm...okay....where to begin.  As most times in life lately, it began with a google search (of course it did!).  That brought way more information on goal setting and goal setting worksheets than one girl really needs!!  I settled on a worksheet layout that was created by Aimee, at the Crazy Craft Lady.  I liked how she broke up the time for the goals into a 90 ...

Setting Goals on Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre


 Is it just me, or did it feel like all of 2020 was spent just "waiting it out".  It kinda reminded me of my childhood in the 1970's on the Tug Hill Plateau in upstate New York. (And when I say Upstate NY, I don't mean 45 minutes north of New York City, but the truly Northern end of the state)  We would get these ridiculously huge snow storms where you were lucky to make it the mailbox more less to the grocery store.  You just spent the next few days, just waiting for the weather to break ...

Happy New Year! And, a Finally Finished! from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

Yes, dear readers, today is only January 2, and I have a Finally Finished to reveal. And some thoughts about learning curves.

Happy New Year! I know I already said it, but it feels good to say it. 2020 is SO LAST YEAR as the kids say, and I think we are all grateful that it is.

Who knew a year ago that when I may have mentioned how awful 2019 was, that 2020 would be worse?

But more about 2020 in another post. I know it's been a while since my last post. There are many reasons for ...

Happy New Year!! from Appalachian Quilts

 


I'm not a "Resolution" person.  I am more of a goal setter.  Statistics show that most people who make resolutions actually break them before the end of January.  Disappointment sets in and that is it for the year.  I set goals for the year:  spiritual, career, homestead, relationship, financial, etc.  With my love of list-making, it is easy to keep track of what I want to do and what I have accomplished.  An old employer taught me about SMART goals:  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound.  I have used this in my goal setting ever ...

2021 Goals from Goer

My tradition is to post my goals for the new year on December 31. Plans... Goals... Resolutions... I seem to be in good company with people who are feeling like planning is hard to do at the moment. I seriously considered a blank post here. Hats off to you much more ambitious folks.

Okay, here are some thoughts. They aren't grandiose. In many ways they are continuing status quo.

Life

  • Walk daily.
  • Read daily. (I read 33 books this year which was awesome!)
  • Watercolor and other creative pursuits multiple times a week.
  • Board games 5-7 days a week with ...

What a long, strange year it's been from The Academic Quilter

 Hello everyone, and welcome to the end of 2020! I'm so happy to say that, aren't you? What a year. There's no reason to go through the litany of why I am so glad to see this miserable year come to a close, is there? I'm betting that many of you are feeling the same way. I was going to say "we made it!" but of course that isn't true for too many families. Instead, I'll just say that I'm grateful that my husband and I remained healthy this year, and my parents ...
