OMG January 2020 Finish

72 log cabin blocks (some in a pile)
I completed my #onemonthlygoal for January. I finished the 72 blocks I wanted to make and got a good start on the final 72 I will need to make the quilt. I'm linking up with One Monthly Goal

OMG January 2020

My one-monthly-goal for this month is to make 72 mini log cabin blocks for a quilt I want to have done in April. The plan is to make a lapquilt from 4" (finished size) log cabin blocks and I will need a total of 168. I have 30 made so if I made 72 this month and 72 next month I will be ready to assemble and quilt in March.

Sunday Stitching Post #12

I sewed for at least 15 minutes on 20 days in October  which is 64% for the month and 52% for the year for my 15-minutes-to-stitch goal
November is only at 7/23 days as of yesterday.
In the past month or so I have mostly I worked on my scrappy purple Irish chain quilt (which I am happy with so far) and on the scrapping goals basket.  
Scrappy Irish Chain in Progress

I finished the new purse I was planning. 
I have some things I want to sew for Christmas gifts, and the black dress from my last post is still only a concept.  It is cold and grey and bleak around here which contributes to a lack of motivation. 
Curated Quilts has a really interesting mini quilt challenge at the moment: faces. It is due in early December which may be too soon for me to get anything done, but I am playing with an idea.

OMG November (unofficial)

crumb quilt with binding fabric
I made my One Monthly Goal for October so am setting a new one for November. It isn't big, but it is binding which is one of my least favorite things. My #onemonthlygoal for November is to get the purple crumb quilt bound. I will need to make the binding, attach it, and handsew it to the back of the quilt. 
I was having trouble getting the picture in this post and then forgot to go back to it in time to link up with One Monthly Goal so this is unofficial.

OMG October Finish

90 finished blocks and the pattern
I completed my #onemonthlygoal for October. I finished all 90 blocks for my purple Happy Scrappy Irish Chain. The next step is to sew the blocks into pairs (they are pinned and ready to sew) then assemble the top.  I'm not sure yet if I am going to add a border, I will decide when I see how the blocks look put together. 
So far this quilt has 1,440 pieces in it!

Sunday Stitching Post #11

I sewed 14/30 days in September, so a little short of 50%. In October so far I am at 17/27 (62% or my 15-minutes-to-stitch goal ). Mostly I have been working on my scrappy purple Irish chain quilt. At my September quilt retreat I also made some log-cabin blocks. I got fabric recently for a new purse which I plan to work on soon. I might also start on a black dress in the near future. Motivation has been a problem lately, so will have to see how that goes.
