Another month has gone by....

And my how time did fly......  School starting, work as well.... I won't have as much time to quilt but


then again, I haven't quilted much this summer.  I did try to catch up on many of the BOMs that I'm in this year (Canadian Mystery Quilt, Splendid Sampler, Quilt Doodle, Block Lotto, and more).  But at this point I'm giving up in many ways.  The Canadian Mystery Quilt is caught up, and some of the Splendid Sampler, but my main goal is to finish up 2014's BOMs and some of my UFOs.  Most of the BOM's are sewn, it's the quilting that is taking me so long....  But I'll get there.

One of those UFO's is from 2012, the Midnight Garden - my goal for August.  I didn't believe that I would be able to complete the entire quilt knowing that I would be away for half the summer so I set a modest goal - three of them.  And I was successful!!!!!  I even named which flowers I would complete.  The tulip, small white flowers (Sorry, I don't know the name of them), and the Lily, the hardest one to do.  Notice how small the stem is, and all those leaves.  I did button stitching  around everything, and then some embroidery on each one.  I'm very happy with the results, and very happy that I not only completed my goal but then some.  On to the next goal.

Linking up to Red Letter Quilts and the OMG (Oh my goodess!!!! - I did it) party!!


and my favorite one so far...


Look at the stitching.  Very pleased that I completed this one.

That's five done and seven to go.  Here is the completed quilt by Sara Tuttle and Sandy Brawner.  Can't wait for it to be completed.  See the  tag "Midnight Garden to see all the others.

    1. Thanks Heidi. I was wondering what that flower was called. Yes, it's coming along nicely. My "Unofficial" goal is to do at least 2 a month to get it done before Christmas. Thanks for visiting my site.
