August OMG

Since I managed to meet my goals in July I’m hoping to do the same for August.

I have a wall hanging I am doing as a pattern test for a December release. Great pattern with lots of paper piecing and Y Seams. I found some great Christmas fabrics in my stash which are perfect for this one.

The next is another pattern test for December release which is a combination paper piecing and traditional piecing. I love the design of this pattern. Fabrics are also from my stash and I think they will work well.

Another goal is to keep up with the Mystery Mosaic QAL. The fabrics I chose for this one are working well together and I’m having fun with it.

I also pulled a palette of fabrics in order to do a big girl quilt for my youngest granddaughter. I’m having a difficult time trying to find the right pattern for this sweet girl. Ruby is a Blondie with so much charm and character and just look at those adorable curls!

So far these are the possible fabrics Ruby’s quilt. She loves orange and pink!

I’m also searching for a pattern to make a quilt for my fourth great grandchild due to arrive in December on my great grandaughter’s birthday. I need to make this decision this month to get my fabric together. Any suggestions?

I have finished my block and design for a blog hop I’m taking part in in September. I just need to test my pattern to make sure my measurements were recorded correctly. The goal here is to have this one finalized by the end of the long weekend.

In my spare time I’m going to keep working on my knitted slippers. Somehow I just never seem to find time to sit and knit. I’m guessing our lovely summer weather has something to do with it!

So my goals for the month are;

1. Complete one wall hanging, Finished August 9, 2019

2. Complete a top for a pattern test,

3. Choose a pattern for Ruby’s quilt,

4. Choose a pattern for the next great grandchild, Blocks are in progress from the Once Upon A Story RAL in September by Marian from Seams to be Sew.

5. Keep up with the Mystery Mosaic QAL, Fabrics are cut.August 10, 2019

6. Finalize my pattern for the blog hop in September, Done, tested and pdf’d.

7. Work on my knitted slippers.

As far as I can tell it’s totally doable and even leaves time for those squirrels!

Thanks for stopping by to read my post! Have fun while you are fondling fabric. 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
