My PHD in August

Gail from Quilting Gail introduced me to her PHD Challenge and Tracker.

I love being held accountable and keeping track of my projects and Gail’s tracker sure helps.

With being at home because of the Evacuation Alert and needing to keep busy I did have a good month.

I finished several quilt tops and one of them was for the Orange You Glad Blog Hop.

Then I managed a trip to the studio once the Evacuation Alert was rescinded.

My last bit of fun before I left the Okanagan (masks were worn the while I was there due to the rise in Covid-19 cases) was to deliver some quilts for the Quilts For Lytton Drive.

I will be heading back to the studio to get some more quilts finished to donate to QFL again at the end of the month, after I work for Elections Canada. It is interesting to see that our Federal Government is following our Provincial Guidelines to having an election during the Pandemic. I did work for the provincial election during the Pandemic and was pleased to see that with great protocols it wasn’t a super spreader event.

I also finished a test pattern quilt which is 68” x 85” in 3 days! This is a great quilt pattern and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you in a few weeks. All I can share now is a sneak peak of some of the fabrics/strip sets before I started cutting them.

The end of the month has me playing with these piles of fabric:

All in all, August was a good month and I’m happy with what I did get finished.

My favourite quilt this month was Phoenix Rising. I’m really looking forward to getting it one the frame and really finished 😉

Can you see how bad the greens were from the heat wave, heat dome and smoke? Luckily we’ve had a bit of rain and the grass is coming back. 😄
For clarification, I do count my starts as done once I get them to flimsy stage. Then I move them to my UFO list because that is where almost everything gets stalled since I’m not at the studio as much as I’d like. If I can get another half dozen or more off my UFO List by years end I’ll be doing a happy dance. 😉

Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. It’s nice reading and responding to your comments. 😄 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.
