One Monthly Goal for August 2018

It's been a busy week without a lot of stitching, which unfortunately is going to the theme for August.  A new project was approved at work on Friday with a very aggressive timeline.  Add in the family time already scheduled for a couple of weekends, sewing time is going to be in short supply this month.  That makes it a challenge to pick August's One Monthly Goal



My 2018 quilt plan says that the Twinkle Star quilt is the project for August.

Twinkle Stars was my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project for 2015.  I finished the final 4 blocks last year, but I apparently never put the blocks back up on the design wall so I could photograph the whole set of 72.  The plan is to set these together with a 1" sashing and corner stones.  That's a lot of sashing to cut and stitch. With the sewing time restrictions this month, getting this to the finished flimsy stage is not happening.  So my goal for August is to figure out the final block postions and cut the sashing strips so it's ready for assembly the next time this project comes up in the rotation. That should be doable.  The point is to move the project along.  Thankfully the deadline for this quilt isn't till graduation season next year.

  1. I love these stars so much! Your beautiful star blocks inspired me to make one quilt already - now looking at them again has me itching to make another! (Maybe I should follow your lead and use it for RSC, just to keep me from chasing off after *another* darn squirrel)

  3. Love Twiinkle Stars! Just yesterday I came across a picture of my ONE block from RSC a couple of years back and it made me want to make more.

  4. I'm starting a file of blocks I want to make next years for RSC, and these stars are in the #1 position! I'm glad you'll be moving this one forward and want to see how the sashing/cornerstone layout looks :)

  8. These are such great blocks! Hope the work stuff is manageable- I am in the midst of a busy period too so not lots of sewing going on here either,
