September Charming Girls Quilt Club Goals and a winner

Can you believe that September is already here? I certainly cannot. Time to set those goals again. This club is really helping me make a dent in my UFO's and my stash. Again, thanks to Kelly for organizing it.

Well, you probably saw most of these goals coming:
Goals 1,2 and 3 are to quilt and bind each of the baby quilts I have made. This is quite time consuming for me yet, especially since each one is over a 48 inch square. They are pretty big. Sorry to bore you again with pics of each one, but it is part of the rules.

I am going to be a risk taker this month and throw in a 4th goal. Say what you ask! Yes, 4! My fourth project is going to be making 2 of these cute snowman wall hangings.

The pattern and Crazy 8's fabric is by Sandy Gervais. I bought the fabric at Kelly's shop. I cannot say nice enough things about Kelly's customer service or her reasonable prices. You just can't beat it. You really should go check out her great selection of precuts and yardage.

Finally, thanks to all of the great comments on the giveaway. I enjoyed reading about everyone's favorite baby quilts. It was truly fun! The winner of the fat quarter pack is Mary on Lake Pulaski (please email me your address)! Congratulations.

Happy Sewing you Charming Girls!!

Kris, I got my lovely tea towel and other goodies. Can't wait to try the recipes. My husband is in the hospital very very sick. I have your towel almost finished but it could be a little late because all this. Plus, I've come down with some kind of cold or something. But don't give up on me. I love everything you sent me, especially the towel.. It's hanging on my oven door now. THank you so much.

Those quilts are so darling! You sure have set a lot of goals, but you can do it...I haven't figured out mine yet, suppose I better think about it!
Congrats to Mary!

How did I miss this post? Congratulations to Mary on winning the FQs! I too have that snowman pattern and it's on my to do list. I was just thinking today of what I want to get done before the holidays. I even have a Halloween wallhanging that I need to quilt from last year. So simple, just a panel but need to find the time. And I'm thinking of teachers gifts for Christmas and going through my patterns to see what strikes my fancy.

I don't mind seeing the quilts again. They are so pretty. Binding is my least favorite part too. At least the hand sewing part. I don't mind attaching the binding to the front of the quilt. :D
