August Projects

Kelly, over at Charming Chatter, has started a club aimed at getting some projects finished. I'm in desperate need of motivation, so I'm playing along this month. Although none of these are whole quilts (and one isn't quilting at all!), they are the projects I need to get finished...they all have deadlines!

First up is a block for our Diocesan quilt project. I've been asked to create a block representing our parish. I'm going to do a Baltimore Album style block, red on white, with a small sketch of our church in the center.

Second up will be my new block for the Heartland Heritage block of the month from the Fat Quarter Shop. I've managed to stay up to date with this one, I want to keep it that way!

Third are my socks that have been on the needles for months now...I want these done before the weather gets cold!

I've got loads of projects going on my design wall. My fourth project will be catching up with my basket block of the month. I've got June, July and August to do, I plan to have them done by the end of the month!

And I thought I'd share my last two blocks finished...May in the basket swap and July's block from Gail Pan's block of the month.
I hope to make good progress on these projects because I have one more that I want to add to my list when I finish!

Looks like you're making great progress to me! I have a bunch of unfinished stuff too -- I need to get with the program!

I like the stuff on your design wall - a full wall means your creativity is showing. :)

You go girl - get those projects done so you can have new ones. LOL

You've got some excellent projects on the go and I know you'll get them finished.

Love the pic of your deesign wall. I
love FQS BOMs too as well as the Bunny Hill BOM and Gail Pan's BOM. Your yarn is so cute, and those socks
look warm, well one of them does anyway, LOL. Your feet will be happy campers this winter wearing those socks. The Baltimore Album block is so beautiful looking. Good luck with your projects :^)
