Deana: June Quilt Goals

Yay!  I am so happy that June is here.  School is out for me and I have a few long summer days to sew sew sew.  I am also exercising and trying to eat healthier to lose some weight.  My goal is 15 pounds.  So far (this week) I have stuck to my guns and schedule.  I hope to start school in the fall a few pounds lighter.

Well, enough of that.  Now it is time to write my post for June goals.  I will be gone for 2 1/2 weeks in June for training meetings and my daughter is expected to deliver my first grand child this week.  I plan to take my sewing machine to the training to sew at night and to do hand stitching when my daughter has her baby.  That will leave me little time for machine quilting which is my real focus.  We shall see how the month all works out I suppose.

My "One Monthly Goal" for June is to quilt this gorgeous star quilt for my sister Felicity.  It has been basted for two months now and is so ready for my attention.  I hope to finish it up before the baby comes so I can deliver it when I visit.

Here are some other goals for the month:

1.  Finish blanket stitching, borders, quilt, and bind this baby quilt for my other daughter who is getting a baby in July.

2.  Complete my #7 draw from Patchwork Times monthly goal draw.  It is to complete the little missing corner of this long time UFO sliced quilt challenge.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this project and just needed a push from my UFO draw list to finish it.  I hope to also get it appliqued onto a square piece.  I won't get a complete finish on it, however, because I found the most adorable paper pieced winter neighborhood pattern online.  It won't be released until the end of the year so I'll have to wait.  I plan to piece the neighborhood and put a row at the top and a row at the bottom.

3.  Get borders on these two quilts to prepare them for quilting and baste them!  This was last month's goal that didn't pan out.

4.  Finish piecing Christmas Log Cabin.  This was a draw # a couple of months ago that didn't quite make it.

5.  Crochet around the edges of two receiving blankets.

6.  Hand stitch these babies down and wash out the glue basting.

I also hope to get the sashing on them pieced and attached.

7.  I also hope to quilt and bind my Star Crazy quilt.  It is basted and ready for some machine time.

    Beautiful amount of sewing in here. Just lovely

  2. Beautiful star quilt. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  3. Hi Deanna,

    My name is Elizabeth Rosenberg. I manage the quilt shop at Riverhead Vacuum and Sewing Center, which is located on the east end of LongIsland.

    While I was searching the internet yesterday, I came across your quilt, Sewing Delights. I fell in love with it, searched your name and found the quilt on Craftsy. You are a great designer! I would like very much to carry the pattern in the shop. Can you get back to me at about prices and other info?


  4. Okay. That is some list of goals for the month. Good thing you are on holidays now. I am retired and have all day every day to do stuff and I chose to complete just one fifteen inch radiant star block.
    Being a grandma is the best thing ever.

  5. Gracious! If you can accomplish all of that plus deal with a conference and a new grandbaby, then you will give me a run for my money! I have none of that extra stuff to do, and I have an incredibly long list of things I'd like to accomplish. Good luck with yours! I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I will need cheerleaders. You might, too! I will check in with you at the end of June to see how you did.

  6. Lots of wonderful quilts in the making! Really like number 2 and 6. Beautiful!


  7. Wow! Heaps going on! Crazy busy lives!

    I adore your round winter wonderland workpiece.... absolutely delightful... my DH has never seen snow... so I don't think we will make that one here. heh heh
