My One Monthly Goal for August is to finish the puff stitches for the silk binding on this very cool autumn lap quilt, and do a label for it.
It's been sitting at this point for several months, so let's get it wrapped up and into use for September! :)
The Rest of the Story:
The August UFO drawn by APQ is #10.
My piecing #10 is my Sue Garman "And to All a Good Night" project.
Great timing! I'm close to being finished with the top applique panel.
I've pulled fabrics from my stash for the scrappy piecing of the main field in the quilt. I'm king-sizing the pattern to fit our bed. Hopefully it'll emerge the way my mind's eye sees it. Our room is blue and we put up a snow-flocked tree with blue accents in the bow window, so I wanted to incorporate blues and grays with a Christmas feel, but keep the green and red stars.
My longarming #10 is my Allietare from the Bonnie Hunter mystery of winter 2015-16. I finished the flimsy in a timely manner, but it's sat forever in my longarming closet.
I do have to finish a lot of remaining work on this GINORMOUS king-sized Dinner Plate Dahlia (also for our bed) before I load Allietare. . . which gives me time to scare up a backing for that cheddar and turquoise beauty!
And that is more than enough work for one month! Let's see how much I accomplish. :)
