CGQC Goals for September/October


I know, I am late posting my goals for the Charming Girls Quilt Club. It's already September 2oth..........dare I say I've been busy. It seems we've been gone a lot in the last 3 months: a wonderful trip to Yellowstone National Park, a couple of long weekend camping/RV trips to Pismo Beach and Julian, a couple of day trips to visit our grandbabies, and I spent a few days in Simi Valley with my mom.

In between these travels, I have managed to sew and complete a few small projects, also listed on my sidebar under OPAM finished projects:

(1)several pillowcases for the Conker Cancer Project in conjunction with Project 9 of Craft Hope (my daughter, Nicole and I hosted a few friends one night
and we all made pillowcases to donate)(2)2 sets of placemats for gifts (one set I forgot to photo so will have to post it later) (3)re-made the "cupcake" apron for my d-i-l, Angelina;
(4)a new "Charger" dress for my granddaughter, Gigi;
and (5) my husband's "Fire Patches" Quilt. Below is a preview pic, full pictures and details will be in a future post, following the "chief's" retirement at the end of October!
I've been working on a couple of baby quiltsboth baby quilt tops still to be completed, pinned, quilted and bound.
I hope to finish them both by the end of October.

Other projects I hope to also finish include my "Moose Junction"
quilt by Mckenna Ryan. I made the top at the February quilt retreat
and it's time to complete it!
I need to add another border to make it into a small lap quilt,
then I need to pin, quilt and bind it.
I think I will finally make the Moose tablerunner, also by Mckenna Ryan,
pictured here in an earlier post.

This coming weekend we will head north once again, to meet our Redding buddies at the Flying Flags RV Resort for yet another Brown Bag Quilt Retreat,
our last one of 2010! Here's to a great weekend with friends and lots of quilting!!
