NOT DONE, and while I did join the guild, it turns out the service requirements don't include QOVs so I will have to continue to try to motivate myself to make one of these.
So, for the October Goals I've got a few definite deadlines which means I've got some real priorities that I have to really focus on. I will, however, keep the other things on the list just to keep abreast of them or in the hopes that some "extra" beyond the priorities can also get done this month.
1. WIP: My "Confetti" scrap quilt. There's a scrap quilt contest being held by Fabrics 'N Quilts with an October 15 posting deadline. The scrappy parts for this had been made as "leaders/enders" for the past few years and during September I found background and border fabrics for it (which I've already started cutting out) so now it's time to put the "pedal to the metal" and "'git 'er done"! If I have time, the extra in this category would be to also finish the update of a display piece by adding the Lincoln/Obama embroidery piece to my old Spontaneity quilt.
2. HSY: Now is the time to get my Halloween Quilt project done. I really want to get this finished this year and on the bed for the holiday. The good news is that I can start the blocks for this as leader/enders while I'm putting the top together for the scrap quilt in #1.
3. Wool BOMs: Xmas ornaments. Now that these are up to date, I want stay on track so these are ready for the tree in December.
A: my "Paisley Park" crumb quilt because it could also be entered into the Fabrics 'N Quilts contest.
B: I still have my Chronicles BOM, the last of the initial Civil War projects left to complete and something I already have ideas in mind for custom quilting.
C: My Heart & Home Wool BOM wallhanging (last seen here) which I want to finish and put up for Fall decorating.
I've taken the QOV category off the list until I see what I can get done over the next two months otherwise there's always next year! I already plan to add the quilting of my "High Strung + 2" Christmas quilt to the list for November and/or December. This time I'm going to try to set weekly "To Do" lists to better try to meet my goals so I'm not as easily distracted or diverted by the day to day things that pop up.
May the "To Do's" fall off the list like the leaves will fall off the trees!!
