September - Projects to get done - List

September is here!
My summer has been very productive, sewing-wise, with a little family fun thrown in here and there.

This is my September project list of things to do. (Maybe posting it will give me some accountability to get it done).

Here we go!

1. Quilt for Kids quilt that is quilted and now needs binding.

 This is the binding I am going to use. It is a strip of binding left over from the Baby girl quilt I just finished up. There isn't enough to go all around the quilt so I am going to cut this piece into sections about 8 inches long and altenate it with white 8 inch sections to make it go farther.

2.Now that my long arm is free I am going to load up my nieces quilt, get it quilted and put the binding on all in this month. Did I say "all in this month"?? I am sure she will be happy to know this since she graduated high school last year! I know what your thinking or at least I know what I am thinking (because I can't read minds - for real), but I think I can do this! (Or at least plan to do it, right?).Here is the pieced top laying on the long arm thinking about getting loaded on.

 I am going to piece the back of her quilt with all the fabric I have left over. As you can see I have a pretty fair amoung left over. If it isn't enough I will add white on the borders to make it bigger.

I should just stop here! but I am going to push myself this month so here goes>>>.

3. Here is a flannel Baby Boy Rag quilt that is on the list to finish up. All of the squares are cut and some are sewn together so on the list it goes!

4.Here is a table runner and a table topper all pinned and ready to be machine quilted. 

5. My lovely flower quilt that I would like to finish piecing and get quilted this month.
 When I get all of that done (hehe) a new project to start?

I know, I know. I still have other projects burning on the back burner.
 I have tons of ideas for newer projects to start!
I love the process, finishing up one and starting another, or maybe it's the other way around. Either way - I LOVE IT!

What is your project list for this month? I would love to hear about it. Feel free to leave me a comment as I love to hear from you.
I hope your summer has been productive too. Look out Fall here we come. :)  

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love the flower quilt. Gorgeous. Linking from Sew Many Ways. Cheers Karen

  2. Ambitious list! But I think sometimes it's good to have a list like that so you can push yourself. Good luck this month!
