September OMG 2018 Update

It is time to report on those September sewing goals!

I completed my three blocks for the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler, and you can find that post (and information about the sampler) by clicking here.

I am so happy to report that I have finished my President’s Book fabric pages!

In fact, I have completed a tome, not just a book!  This thing is big!

I am going to have to come up with a plan to display it in my sewing space.  This book is very special to me, since life took a turn and I have not been able to spend time with these precious quilting friends.  Some have moved on, and some have passed on as well.  But I have wonderful memories each time I look at these pages.

Another goal was scrap control.  I did cut my scraps into usable strip sizes.

The strips are sorted by color and size and stored in plastic bags in bins.

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts OMG (One Monthly Goal).  Check out the updates of the other participants and get inspired and motivated!  It has certainly helped me to announce goals to the world…I am actually completing a few!

  4. You had a good month. I have small shelves on the wall behind my ironing board. That’s where I keep things I like to look at because I iron almost every day.
