The beginning of the month means......

Time to sort out what  item is up for a finish during the month.   Me thinks that it will be a couple of smaller items this time.    First up this panel just happened to fall into grandma's basket as she was walking around the fabric shop and seeing that Skye from Paw Patrol is one of Miss M's favourite tv characters how could I have left it behind.    Now what to do with it.   I feel a couple of pillowcases may come out of this.  


One of the members of my quilting group impressed us all when she made a few snap top bags.   Hopefully I can impress you also if I can make something out of this.


Then there is the little matter of some snowball blocks that were made a couple of years ago - like about 5 years - lurking at the bottom of one of my fabric crates.


Originally this was designed to be something big but after laying them out and having a play around with what blocks are made a tablerunner is their destiny.    I have decided that small and finished is better than waiting for something that may never happen.  

So enough about what I hope to achieve lets go and see what everyone who has signed up over at Elm Street quilts OMG aspires to finish during September.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Your GD will love a few pillow slips from that pretty Panel.
Hope you get all your projects finished.

Lots of fun things in your future. I like the pillowcase idea. There is a lot said for finished compared to piled in a box or corner. Good luck with your goals. B.

Nice projects! I agree that a few small projects for a month is a good way to accomplish some UFOs.
