November Goals.

Hi! If you're new to my humble abode, please feel free to learn some more about me or check out some of my finished quilts

It's November. Meaning I have less than two months to make good on my goal to handmake nearly all of our holiday gifts. Yikes!

Here are some of my favorite October finishes: 

  • Tote--have pattern picked out; fabric arrived
  • Finish wonky star table runner--need to finish binding
  • 100 Quilts for Kids quilt--need to finish binding
  • Finish Marie blocks--14 of 20 done
  • Andrea Mini--need to finish handquilting and binding
  • October block for HST BOM
  • Blocks for A Very Merry HST BOF
  • Triangle mini quilt--need to finish cutting fabric
  • Drawstring bags
  • Start work on holiday and birthday gifts
At this point, I'd be surprised if the triangle quilt gets finished before we move in January, so I'm taking it off the list for now. All of the difficult work of the piecing is done, but I am still wrestling with some design elements, and I don't want to rush it. I decided not to sew up a tote due to time constraints, but also because I was gifted a really fierce bag for my birthday, and I no longer need the handbag variety. (For now.)


  • HST quilt-finish piecing top
  • Marie quilt-finish piecing columns
  • Banzo and Lito's quilt-finish piecing top
  • cut fabric for holiday gifts
  • kidlet capes
  • finish skirt
  • BOM and BOF blocks
  • piece BOF top
  • Scout's blanket
I've started working on December's list, and Friends, it's a doozy! I'm linking up with Lily's Quilts and the Small Blog Meet!

  1. I'm loving the looks of your HST quilt! I'm always fascinated by all of the patterns HST's can make, but I wish they weren't so tedious to make.

  2. Look how organized you are! I must try that some time. Lots of great finishes too! I still love that mini quilt at the top.

  3. I agree with Chez Roo, you are very organized - no doubt the reason you get so much done! Congrats on crossing so many things off your lists.

  4. You seem scarily organized - good luck with finishing all your gifts - I love that first photo!

  5. You've gotten a LOT accomplished. I love your fabric color choices.

  6. Love the Andrea mini. And the pink hair! Wishing i had the 'you know whats' to do that! Found you through the Small Blog Meet.

  7. Visiting from Lily's Quilts -- beautiful things going on here! I love your Tula blocks and that gorgeous star on the top left!
