Finishes are another story. The plan was to finish 8 quilts this year. That was a pretty aggressive plan as the most I've ever finished in one year was 7. But there have been three finishes this year, Vintage Tea Time, Midnight Tulips and Allietare (you can see all three here). So in contemplating November's One Monthly Goal I've been trying to decide if there is anything I can do to improve on that finished number. Zombies in Paris just needs to be bound, so that's one option. Poinsettias is a finished flimsy, but it needs a back before it can be sent out for quilting.

If I can get Poinsettias sent out and back, it has a good chance of getting bound before the end of the year, as does the Zombies quilt. I have the backing fabric for Poinsettias. It's just a matter of piecing the back and getting the quilt prepped for Trudy. I really hate prepping quilts, so maybe it's the better option for the One Monthly Goal because I need some additional incentive to get it out the door for quilting. So prepping Poinsettias for quilting and getting it mailed to Trudy is the goal for November.
There's a new host for OMG, Patty who blogs at Elm Street Quilts is taking over for Heidi of Red Letter Quilts. So I'm linking up with Patti for the November OMG. Many thanks to Heidi to coming up with the concept of the OMG. It's been a great motivator for me this year and I'm so glad that Patti is going to carry it on into next year.
