Deana: October Goal Follow-Up



Hello Blogland!  Each month I make a post with my quilting goals.  At the end of the month I come clean on what I did or didn't do. 

Here we go!

1.  Finish quilting and bind the Windmill Quilt.  
Quilted and binding attached by machine - hand work still to do


There is a pattern available for this quilt    
In My Etsy Shop
Or in my Craftsy Shop

 





2.  Complete the entire top of  the bed section of this horse quilt.
FINISHED OCTOBER 27TH 
BEFORE PHOTOS
 This is the direction this horse is headed.  I still need to piece the last ring and then make it rectangular.  You can see partial paper pieced units.  The borders will be hand applique' silhouettes of cowboys and horses.  I have much to do to get this done in time for Christmas.

3.  Design, make, and pattern the November Quilter's Garden row block.  
FINISHED OCTOBER 30TH 
This is the October row we made.
 
 FREE IRON PATTERN IF YOU JOIN!  Details here!

Here is a single October block.  The rotaries in bloom pattern will be available for non participants to purchase at the end of the month.  You get it for free if you join and swap a block. 
 The sewing machine blocks were the September swap.  This pattern can be purchased here, at Etsy.  It includes patterns for three sewing machines.

You can also get it at Craftsy.


4.  Baste Jessi's Medallion to prepare it for quilting. The pattern is available  Etsy shop.  There are two parts in the Craftsy shop because the file was too big, so make sure you purchase them both or you will be missing some.  Etsy has the full pattern in one download.
NOT EVEN STARTED

5. Sew my monthly family round robin.
We all had to design a quilt for a sister or mom, but we all started with the same fabric (below).  As they pass around each month we do not know whose we are working on - it could even be our own quilt.  I have not received mine yet for this month.

FINISHED OCTOBER 16TH

6. Make a small quilt top for my Priceless Quilter Christmas swap.

FINISHED OCTOBER 28TH
BEFORE 
I will be using sewing machine blocks as well as the "mystery" blocks I am designing for November's Quilter's Garden.  A pattern is currently available for the sewing machines at Etsy and Craftsy.  Once the November block is revealed I will release the pattern for this small quilt.  
AFTER
I got more than a top done.  The whole thing is quilted and bound - yay!
7. Baste and quilt this top made by Sandra
FINISHED OCTOBER 

8. 10 Dear Jane blocks - I DIDN'T EVEN MAKE ONE.


Yes, I plan to be in the sewing room every second I am home.  My house will be a little ruffled up and my son and husband will wish I would cook; however, there will be a very clean home with nice meals, and special family moments when she gets home. 

I am linking up with Show off Saturday.

You know, even though you didn't get everything you wanted done, you did so much! And it's all gorgeous.
