October ended up being much more relaxed than I ever imagined. I finished my projects easily, and so I had some time for play on some other things I'd wanted to do for quite a while. So, let's just check out October's list of goals.
I'd like to try to finish off the Mom Cats quilt top. Complete!
If I can finish that one, I'd like to stitch to flimsy stage the Vintage Kitchen quilt. Complete!
4. Jumping in line ahead of everything else is my project for this month's
from this book:
5. And I've been my usual slothful self when it comes to participating in
Without knowing what the October block is, it's hard to say for sure that I'll be motivated, but I really, really, really am planning to make a block for the October lotto. Well, No progress. October's block required either a template or a specialized ruler, and I dislike both. Better luck in November.
Still on my list of to-do's is the next section for Mumm's the Word. Complete!
I took September off from making any more blocks for the Live, Love, Teach quilt, but I have four more blocks slated for October. These constitute blocks 29-32 of the 56 blocks I have to make. Complete!
Still...no bonus points for me. I missed the Block Lotto, and so I must pay the penalty.
So, let's take a look at November, shall we? Or don't. As always, it's totally up to you. We here at Cat Patches value democracy above everything but cats.
Quilting and Flimsies
1. Finally, finally, finally, the Doors of Ireland quilt has moved to the top of the quilts-to-be-quilted pile. I have a lot of ideas about how to quilt this, and so hopefully, the delay has given me enough time to practice my free motion quilting and I'll be able to pull it off.
2. Finish the top for "A Cat is a Cat". I kind of jumped ahead with my own kitty portraits and left Samson in the dust. Poor Samson still needs top-stitching.
3. And finish Smitty's pawtrait, of course.
4. This is always a fun challenge, and I've ended up with some pretty cool quilts that would never have been made otherwise. For this month, I'm continuing on with the Chicken Buffet quilt. Sharon kindly told me I could use it each time I completed a block for this fun quilt.
5. And I'll take another shot at the Block Lotto in November.
7. Continue on with the blocks for the Live, Love, Teach quilt. This time, I'll be doing Blocks 33-36 of the 56 total blocks.
8. Finally, for bonus points, I'll try to get the quilting done for the Feed the Cat quilt.
That's a pretty good list for the busy month of November. Think I'm up to the challenge? We shall see.
What's on your list of goals for November?
