I am going to try to keep my goals for this month simple, even though I have deadlines on all three of these quilts!here.
My second goal is to finish the sailboat blocks on the baby quilt. The baby is due August 12, so I hope to get more than that done, but with my schedule this month, I'm not sure if that will happen! My Singer 15 is skipping stitches again and I'm not sure why! I hope I have time today or tomorrow to take it apart and just give it a thorough cleaning! Too bad I can't make Muffin do it, lazy cat! To see what else I have done with this quilt go here. http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/06/pinwheels.html
An acquaintance from Lubbock will be in town August tenth and since my family lives in Lubbock I'm hoping to get my nephew's quilt (denim) and my niece's quilt (great granny square) completely done so that I can send them back to my mom. They are Christmas presents but since I won't be going home for my birthday this year in September (I'll be moving), I want to send the quilts back with Ruby. This will save a lot on shipping and I won't have to worry about them getting lost in the mail. I also won't have to pack and move them! LOL I really hope I can get the quilting done, but I'm not sure I will so it is not a goal.
To sum up:
1 - clip and wash denim rag quilt
2 - finish sailboat blocks
3 - baste great granny square quilt
I should be able to meet these goals! I'm even thinking of maybe taking the sail boats with me and work on them at the hotel when my husband has his work conference in Dallas. I don't really want to spend any money since we are moving in two months. I'm sure they have some nice covered tables outside I can set up in, it's a great way to meet people because everyone stops to see what I'm doing! LOL
Have you set any goals for July?
P.S. Did I mention all of these quilts have been made on either a hand crank or treadle?
