August Blocks

I was very productive this weekend and also put together the August blocks for the craftsy block of the month quilt along.  Blocks 15 and 16 are stars using flying geese!

Block #15 is the Ohio Star.

Block # 16 is my favorite so far, the Double Star.

All 16 look so great together, only a few more days until the September blocks come out!

July Blocks

It is almost the end of August, but with a new job I have had little time to sit down to my sewing machine.  This weekend I accomplished the July blocks that have been sitting on my desk all cut and ready to sew.

I love the traditional and modern take on the dresden blocks. Block #13 is the Traditional Dresden Plate Block.

Block #14 is the Modern Dresden Wheel.  I love them both and slightly modified both blocks, by using a print as the inner circle.

I love the look of all 14 blocks together, only 6 more to go!

Just Three

traceyjay quilts

I am going to link up with Just 3 at Traceyjay Quilts this month.  I have come to a point where I am about to have a full time job and some school, so my creative time is about to be dramatically cut.  The job is a great thing, I have been looking for a job for months now and I now have an offer!

So instead of Work in Progress Wednesdays every week, I am going to have three goals for the month. I may still link up with WIP at Freshly Pieced every once in awhile, but for now, I need to make some realistic goals.

Here they go:

1.  Finish the Stand Mixer cover for my kitchen.

2. Make my Craftsy blocks of the month for July and August.

3. Quilt my placemats.

As for my report from last month.  I never got around to posting this because  school, but my goals were:

1. Finish my "Creative Project" for my intro counseling class.  It is completed and I will write it up so I am ready for my presentation this Saturday.  I have been without a computer for a week now so there are no good pictures.  Look for a post soon.

2. Finish my mom's table toppers.

3. Make a matching pillow.
