Tula Pink Sampler Update

Here is a little update on my City Sampler Quilt. I have added these block to my finished list...

Block #93   #tula100 Block #4   #tula100 Block #5     #tula100 Block #6     #tula100 Block #33     #tula100 Block #43    #tula100
 If I remember correctly, this gives me 29 blocks completed. I am almost 1/3 of the way done! I cut out 8 more blocks last night and I hope to piece them tonight at the City Sampler Sew Along tonight at my LQS! These are fun blocks, and as I look at everyone's blocks join this group or this group, it makes me think of many different possibilities for making more quilts with these blocks in the future! I hope to give you an update soon about tonight's fun!

June's Goals...

I am working hard already on my goals for this! can you believe that the month is already half way done?

Goal #1
I am still working on my Tula Pink City Sampler quilt. These blocks are still so much fun. I am setting a goal of 3 of these tiny blocks a week.  So by the end of the month I should have at least 12 blocks done.

Goal #2
A carry over from last month, I really need to finish my mother-in-laws quilt.  I have only a bit of quilting and the binding to finish.  It is not my favorite colors, but it is my mother-in-law's, I am starting to wonder if that is why I am struggling with finishing it. I am just not that into it.

Goal #3
Make my BOM for my LQS, and maybe catch up on some extra BOM blocks I have been making along the way.

Goal #4
Month 1

Finish piecing, and possibly send to the long-arm quilter, my Michael Miller Clubhouse quilt from 2011.
This quilt is going to be for my Mom and Dad. I think it will look lovely on their bed. 
Goal #5 I need/want to sew some skirts and dresses for my girls. Summer weather is definitely upon us and it will be fun to be in light/ bright clothes.

So what are your goals for this month? Is there anything you are working or trying to finish? I hope that you are safe and cool where ever you are!
 Chat with you soon!

May's Goal in Review

There is nothing in the world like that of knowing you accomplished something wonderful!  With that being said it is time to review my goals for the month of May.

I had made 5 goals for May to be completed in only 10 days.....(no pressure there!)
Well I am here to say that I completed 3 of the 5 goals!! (Does a little happy dance :-))

I pieced a backing, sandwich, quilted and bound my Postage Stamp Quilt.

Postage Stamp Quilt Complete!  Postage Stamp Quilt Complete!

I decided to keep the quilting simple with diagonal lines.  I was thinking about making boxes, but my hubs changed my mind for me. 

I love this quilt, and my oldest daughter does as well. I am believe that she will be keeping it on her bed.  I still have enough of the Farmer's Market fabric to make at least one more quilt! Oh the possibilities....I must ponder this for a bit!

 As well as a completed quilt, I was able to make my BOM for my LQS, and piece more City Sampler Blocks. You can check them out right here! I am enjoying these blocks and hoping that my fabric choices are as nice as Miss Tula Pink's Quilt. 

I was trying to get this post to you all you all sooner, but Blogger is being bad! Hopefully, it will start acting straight and I will be able to let you know what my June goals are, and about some more City Sampler Blocks. I hope you are having a great day and I will chat with you all soon!

17 Blocks in 2 weeks. These little blocks are like Pringles Potato Chips...."Once you pop you can't stop!" My LQS is going to have a City Sampler support group starting this month. I may not have any blocks left to make by the time this group rolls around. I am almost 1/4 of the way through the book :-) Are any of you working on this quilt? Are you enjoying these blocks as well? I hope you all have a great week and I will be back with a finish tomorrow!
