Monday One Day Late

I was able to complete my first goal last week, which was to complete step 3 of Royal Gardens, as my Breakfast Club's assignment at my LQS.  I only had to make four blocks which helped me.  I can not wait to get this quilt put together as it is going to be gorgeous!  My finished blocks are below.

This week my first goal is to cut out this lovely baby quilt, which will be a simple rail fence quilt.  I am going to make it scrappy, so I need to cut each individual piece out and then start sewing.  I did not make any progress on this last six weeks and failed to work on it.  So I really hope I can this week, especially since it is my October OMG again.  (My goal is to cut it out on Sunday)

My second goal is to iron and cut out the fabrics for my Proud Mary quilt, which is my quilt for Busy Hands Quilts QAL from the Splash of Color book by Jackie Kunkel.  My goal is to stay up to date with this QAL.

My third goal is to start quilting this panel for a chenille blanket.  My niece loves Doc McStuffin', and it contains her two favorite colors, pink and purple.  I hope to get it half quilted.  Simple straight lines 1/2" apart from one another.  It will be a lot of lines to get it quilted halfway.

This weekend is a retreat weekend (Friday and Saturday) with Cat Wilson a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor at my LQS.  My Mom and I will be quilting together, which makes it even more fun for me.  I have a few goals for both of my projects while we are there.  On my Woodcarver's Star I want to start on the spikes and fan pieces so that I can learn how to put them, as Cat told me at the last retreat there is a secrete way to put them together.  One my Vintage Rose quilt I want to get the 8 of either the left or right side of the thorns done, and learn which section after the thorns are done for me to do.  I am excited to spend a weekend quilting and make progress on two long term projects.

The last item is when I have spare time in the evening/during laundry time, which is to finish knitting this afghan.  I have about 3 rows left, maybe 6 depending upon size.  I made great progress this last week, and I even shared it during Breakfast Club at my LQS.  I am really hoping to finish this week so I can share it during Finish it Up Friday.

Hopefully I have not planned to do too much based on the time I have available, as I am still working on not planning too much.  Next week we will see how I did.
