1. Landscape picture. Sewing stuff done, just has to be framed. I'm going to class on Friday, so should be finished. - DONE! It was the first thing to finish off and I posted about it here
2. Dolly Dress Up Block (2 of 6). This is a hand sewing project, which I will take to a Sewing Saturday session this Saturday so this may get done this month. The first block was finished while watching the Tour de France last weekend. Aim would be to make a start on block 3. - DONE! I finished the second block and now on the third, but also have a fourth one with wadding and backing ready to sew
3. Trip Around the World quilt. I've made a second top, like the first one pictured below. I've got wadding and backing, so no excuses. - DONE! I started on the quilting on Monday this week, kept to simple machine quilting and folded over the backing to the front to bind, finishing that on Wednesday.
I addition I also managed to make a couple of cushion covers for the charity stall with a spare Scrappy Trip block and a pinwheel block that I tried out after watching a Missouri Star You Tube video. With a couple of bags that I made but never use from the BQL bag challenge of 4 years ago I think that will make a decent contribution.
So that's my round up for July makes. It was good to have targets, this will continue for August too.
August's targets will be
1 While at Festival of Quilts I will get some backing fabric for my Tubix Quilt top, see my post about it here. I have the wadding for this already and hope to see if I can bag a bargain at the Festival which will go nicely with it and think about the quilting. See if I can make progress on this.
2 Have a sort out of my fabric and a good old tidy up. I've got a lot of children's novelty prints so see if I can utilise them in any way. There will be a table top sale towards the end of September (seems a long way away, but I'm sure that will come around soon enough).
3 I've joined Diane's (The Cheshire Quilter) daughter's Mixed Media Challenge on Facebook, which starts today. See what the challenge is and have a go at that.
4 (This is a difficult one) Get a job!!! I am signed up to local agencies and keep looking around, someone out there will want my amazing talents!!! I'm sure that will come right eventually.
