Stash Report and Goal Check

I have nothing to report this week as far as finishes go. I have been busily doing patchwork related stuff all week. I spent the first part of the week getting ready for my patchwork retreat which started on Wednesday, cutting fabric and generall prepping stuff for the time away. Then from Wednesday lunchtime till about 3 PM Sunday I was on the retreat. I did lots of sewing - made a total of 27 Sparkle blocks (from the Missouri Star Quilt Companies tutorial) which I will use in 3 baby quilts. I made all 16 of the paper pieced blocks for the Summer Reading Quilt Along. I made the last 2 blocks for the Amy Gibson 2012 Block of the MOnth on Craftsy. and I did a bit towards a couple of pencil cases but there were no finishes.

I did acquire some fabric at the Retreat. My friend Vicki and I won a quiz on the meanings of various quilting short forms (RR, UFO etc). We won 5 fat quarters that we cut in half so we both got some of each of the blocks. My gift in the mystery gift swap came wrapped in a fat quarter. And then there was the chunk of material I ended up with in the Silent Auction. (I put bids on lots of items just to get things moving. There were some pretty random or should I say ecclectic mixes of things in each lot.) I don't know how much was in the bundle and I won't be counting it as I am going to give it to Handmade with Love as it will make great shirts for boys.

Since we are almost half way through June, its time for a review of my monthly goals. They have grown from 10 to 12 since I wrote them at the beginning of the month

  • Catch up on the Summer Reading QAL that is being run by Pam and Lyn from The Stitch TV Show. Done. (I have done all the blocks.... got a bit keen this weekend)
  • Make Hanging Towels for HML - DONE 
  • Make Birds in the Air block for Twilters Swap - DONE and posted

That is the good news.
As for the remaining 9 goals. I've made progress on 3
  • Assemble the Amy Gibson BOM quilt - I have completed the last 2 blocks for it. Still need to square up the blocks. I have all the sashing cut for it.

  • Make 3 baby quilts (This is a late addition. I forgot to put it on at the beginning of the month) - I have the blocks made. Now to assemble them
  • Make Pencil Pencil Cases for HML. I have completed 2 and have 6 more started. (this is another late addition to my goals.)
The last 6 haven't been touched
  • Make backing for Hexie quilt 
  • Pin and Quilt Onya Bike - hope to pin this at Patchwork group this week.
  • Complete 3 more casserole covers 
  • Quilt Hashtag quilt  
  • Backing for My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes. This came to PnP with me and the box did come out from under the table but only so I could raid the fabric in it to use in the Summer Reading QAL wall hanging. 
  • Quilt Diamond Dash 2 quilt 
So my ambitious goals for this month aren't looking too good. "Onya Bike" is my priority. I want to get it pinned and quilted this month and the other quilting projects will have to wait. 

Sorry there are no pictures but its got way too late and I need to go to bed. I might come back and add them tomorrow but then again......

Linking up with Patchwork Times
