Quilters Accountability Report 10/27/10

As noted in my last post, I am joining back up with Bari at her My Crazy Quilting Life blog and everyone who participates in her weekly Wednesday Quilters Accountability check in.   I have nine projects I've committed to for Finn's Year-End UFO Finish Challenge (and a few more that I'd personally like to see put to bed before the end of this year) so once again I think I need the pressure of a reporting deadline to stay on track.

Case in point: despite planning to work on my aunt's doll quilt yesterday and today, I got zip, nada done (can you say "too much surfing?").  Fortunately all it took was Bari's blog to come up in the Google Reader to remind me of the tasks at hand that I am neglecting.  And since I have a meeting to go to with DS1 tonight and Parent Teacher Conferences Friday afternoon, I'm still not too sure how much I'll get done this week.  But I'll have a go at a list anyway (sorry, no work, no pictures!).

This Week's Goals:

  1. Complete the applique on the Amish Doll Quilt.  If accomplished start (and finish?) the quilting.
  2. If doll quilt gets done before next Friday, post to Amy's Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival.
  3. Complete the remaining six blocks for the Sage Sampler.  Decide on the layout and whether it needs/there is room for sashing.
  4. Cut out the Christmas Tree skirt.
  5. Complete assignments for the Quilt Whisperer class.
Well that should do it.  Now let's see what gets done!  Check out what everyone else got done this week and has in their pipeline for next week back at Bari's.  See you next week!

You know that was just a temporary loss of focus, you'll be right back in the fray in a jiffy! Gotta do a little looking around ya know. You're goal is ambitious, but I know you can do it! Hugs, Finn

Hello again, Vivian! So great to see you back with us, and I so hope we give you that little extra push you need to keep on track!

I love your applique! Strangely enough I have been itching to do hand applique also and have taken a couple of classes on it this year....my longarm schedule has kind of stalled that out though! LOL

Can't wait to see what you have done next week!

Bari

I'm a goal setter too, nothing like marking things off a list once they're done! Good Luck, I think your list sounds ambitious but doable! You do have a nice variety of tasks, that should help!
