October 2017 – To Do List

I’m trying to get my stitching mojo back.  Last month I shared a list of projects I wanted to accomplish for the month in addition to the OMG project.  I was fairly productive and so will post another list this month.

Here it is, my (ambitious) list of projects for October.

OMG for October  – As described in my post yesterday, I’m hoping to bind and label the Choo Choo Quilt when it returns from the Long-Arm Quilter. I can make the binding and Label while it is being quilted.


UFO Challenge for October  – UFO #3 – This is a quilt I started & then made some mistakes making the backing.  I may not get it completely done, but my goal is to get it at least quilted. It is just a throw size so I will be quilting it on my domestic machine.  I don’t do any fancy stitching, so I will have to figure out what I will do. Any suggestions on what colored thread I should use?

Project Linus Mystery Quilt Challenge – This continues to release clues every Saturday Morning – Beginning 9/16 it is to go 8 weeks.  So, September 30, October 7, 14, 21 & 28 will have additional clues released.  I have challenged myself to make 2 quilts and hope to be able to continue to make double of each of the October blocks. Wondering where Ethan will go next?!

Binding – Binding – Binding – See this stack of quilts? They all need binding and labels made so they can be gifted. They are quilted and some of them even have binding already half on.  So this month, I hope to complete binding & adding labels to at least one quilt each week.

Batik Scrappy Quilt – I’m going to try and dedicate at least 2 whole days to work on this.


Autumn Jubilee with Carole on her blog From My Carolina Home – I had fun last year following several of her quick, fun projects to celebrate the beginning of Fall with a lot of very nice prizes.  (Opps! The Autumn Jubilee starts today!  The sewing part starts on Friday.) She will start on Friday, October 6 and continue every Friday during October. She has sewing/quilting, stamping/carding and wool craft projects that shouldn’t take long to make. I only do the sewing/quilting projects and we don’t know what they will be. My goal is to try and keep up on several projects.

Halloween Stitching – Not exactly sure what I want to do.  So being a bit vague and we’ll see what develops! LOL!!

I’d love to see your list of Stitching To-Dos for October in my comments.

Happy Stitching!
