Goal for August

      I keep forgetting I need to post a goal for August. I'm on a staycation right now so I guess time is a little more fluid.  As for picking the goal, well that's easy.  I'm planning to quilt my Postcard from Sweden quilt.



     I'm thinking straight lines with a walking foot ,side to side with a light purple Aurifil thread.  What do you think?
I'm hoping to be able to cross this one off the finish list before the end of August and then move on to Wayward Transparency.  
     Always hopeful, me as I am still working on last months goal.  I'm piecing the rows together and I have an actual date to get it to the long arm quilter on Wednesday evening.  Dwight and I are going on a little overnight visit to Georgian Bay so two days are out of the picture but there's still plenty of time to get the top pieced by Wednesday evening.  I'm heading over to Elm Street Quilts for the linkup before we head out.

  15. Ditto what Cheryl said about the purple. And you could quilt this in pretty much any direction and have it work well.
