September Goal

     The pencil, the sewing machine and especially the rotary cutter have been getting a real workout at my place these days. First off I made these blocks for the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild's, quilt for Pulse.  I already worked on several heart quilts earlier in the summer but when I saw Sheila's design for the TMQG I just had to make one, or would you call this three.  When I was working on these little blocks my brain started thinking of all sorts of word quilts that I could design/make so I'll have to tuck those away in the creations file. 




     I made these sample blocks for a block lotto we will be having at the Royal City Quilt Guild.  I think our members will have a lot of fun making these great little bird blocks.  If you'd like to make some you can find the tutorial here.



    Wendy and I got together to cut 4 quilt kits for the RCQG community outreach program bringing our total to 8.



     I think this is the first year to try handing out kits for complete quilt tops. We usually hand out block kits and we are continuing to do that.

     I've also been working like a beaver on my Cloud9, Cirrus Solids block which I have completed. All I have left is to proof read my blog post and tutorial and tighten it up a bit.  Yay!

     And I've been sewing along with Yvonne of Quilting JetGirl for the Snowflake Shimmer quilt along, and falling behind on the Meadow Mystery that Cheryl of Meadowmist Designs is running.  I have yet to cut my fabric for that one...and truth be told I'm now trailing a bit with Snowflake Shimmer.  I have lots of time to catch up with both of these though, so I'm not worried.  Do you think I should throw Lorna's MOD Bear paw quilt along into the mix?

         In that vein, I have to report once again that I did not meet my August Goal which was quilting my Rainbow Rose Quilt.  I did make some progress towards the goal.  I made the quilt back and pin basted the quilt and I bought a quilting guide that will go to the left of the walking foot, just in case I need it.



     Ever the optimist I am rolling the goal into September and joining all the other folks who are linking up with Heide of Red Letter Quilts for the OMG linkup.

  1. I love seeing your progress and think you can get your Rainbow Rose quilted this month! Good luck deciding whether to join in Lorna's cute QAL or not. :)

  2. So many projects and they are all so colorful! Really intrigued how you will quilt your Rainbow Rose, you have the advantage of seeing several completed variants of quilting (or maybe it's a disadvantage?...)))

  4. I love your cute little bird blocks Lisa, so bright and cheerful. We seem to be doing much of the same stuff, my Cloud9 block is finished too and I am also behind in Cheryl's mystery quilt. This month I am just concentrating on one thing at a time and hopefully I might get a finish.

  5. So many projects on the go; it's not surprising you don't always get your OMG achieved, but on the other hand you are making progress on all fronts.

  10. I am glad I am not the only one falling behind on stuff :) I was planning on doing Lorna's quilt along as well, but it started 3 days ago...am I already behind?? Your bird blocks are adorable. Who ever wins them in the lotto should have a wonderful time turning them into something.

  13. You have a lot of fabric balls in the air, it's amazing that you're juggling them so well! I really wanted to participate in many of the QALs this summer but my plate has just been so full all summer long, and it doesn't seem like it's going to let up anytime soon. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've designed for the Cloud 9 hop. I really like their fabrics and would have loved to participate but again, I declined so as not to over-commit myself. Adorable bird blocks. I've never heard of that website and plan to look around. Thanks!
