Quilt Along Progress 11/30/2016 & One Monthly Goal

Earlier this month I posted my Goals for November, and here is a summary of my progress.

Joining up with the One Monthly Goal,- November Finish Link Up here is what was on my November List.

Goal #1 – (for the One Monthly Goal – November Goal Setting Link-in Party) was to finish at least one Pumpkin & Leaf Project for the Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along. – Close, but not done!

Blocks made, Sashing made, Layout assembled.

Table Topper Pumpkins-Leaves

Table Topper – Maybe I’ll get it done for next year!

Mini Quilt – Not Complete

Mug Rug – Not Complete


Goal #2 – Gracie’s Get Well Garden – Piece the backing. Done!

Backing Pieced 11-15-2016

I got the back pieced and the quilt to the Long Arm Quilter.  Actually, the quilting is done, but I won’t pick it up until Saturday.

Goal #3 – Binding. Binding stitched on 3 quilts.

Goal #4 – Make some more Paws. Not done.

I have worked on a few other projects during November.

1. Tic-Tac-Toe – Made a quilted Tic-Tac-Toe  Game & matching tote bag for our Grandson.


Using some Chalkboard fabric and scraps from a quilt I made him in May, I made this fold up Tic-Tac-Toe Game.  While waiting for our dinner at Bob Evans, he played several games with each one of us.

We got a chance to make a 5-day trip to visit with our Son and his family as well as spending some time with a quilty friend.  Even though I took my Featherweight, only a minimal amount of sewing was done.

2. Pink Chevron – Getting ready for the 2017 Quilt Show booth, I got some 3-yard Bundles from Fabric Café.

I picked up some Christmassy Fabric from WebFabrics and cut some pieces for several Churn Dash blocks.

I’m using these pieces as Leaders/Enders as I stitch other projects.

2 blocks done

It’s fun to get a 2nd project done while stitching other projects.  Two blocks are done.

2 blocks laid out

2 blocks need red-green pieces cut

I have 4 more Churn Dash Blocks pinned to my design boards (recycled Styrofoam packing pieces).  I need to cut a few more red/green pieces to finish up these last 2 blocks.  I don’t know what I’ll make with these – Table Runner, Placemats, Mini Quilt?

Well, I guess with a quick trip and Thanksgiving, I did accomplish several projects and made a dent in several others.


Happy Stitching!
