October One Monthly Goal and Some Weekend Stitching

Hard to believe we've just got three months left in 2017 and those three months will go really, really fast.  I spent some of my stitching time yesterday contemplating which projects to focus on these next three months.  First decision, what's going to be the October One Monthly Goal?  

There's definitely not a lack of subject material for that decision.  I took a peak at what number Patchwork Times picked for this month's UFO-2017 project. It was number 6, which is En Provence on my 2017 Quilt Plan.  Hopefully Bonnie Hunter is planning a new mystery for next month, which means I should really finish up last year's version.  As of yesterday afternoon I had all the pieces finished to make the last block.

I still need to make the hourglass blocks for the last sashing piece, but those are all ready under construction.  All that will be left at that point is assembling the blocks and sashing strips together.  That should be doable in a month.  So the OMG for October is to get En Provence to the finished flimsy stage.  

There's another mystery quilt along going on over at Meadow Mist Designs.  I finished clue one yesterday. 

Magnolia Mystery by Cheryl Brickey of
Meadow Mist Designs

All 72 HSTs for the Magnolia Mystery are finished.  So I'm ready for clue 2 when it comes out on Thursday.  I'm really liking my fabric choices at this point.  

Now to figure out what projects are most likely to get finished before the end of the year so I can link up with the last quarter of the 2017 Finish Along.  The OMG and the Finish Along have been great motivators this years.

I love your Magnolia HSTs! I can't wait for this week's clue either but I won't get to sew on it until at least the 10th because we're going out of town. I'm hoping that this year is the year that I finally get to do a Bonnie Hunter mystery!
