Hard to believe it's already August and time to decide what's on the quilty to do list, including what's the August One Monthly Goal.
The goal for August is to get the Vintage Dresses quilt prepped for quilting and sent on it's way to be quilted.

The back of the finished flimsy needs to be cleaned up. White is so clean and crisp, but it requires the most care with snipping off loose threads on the back so they don't show through once it's quilted. That is my least favorite part of quilting. So making it my OMG will ensure it gets done.
What else is on the July to do list? Finish adding the borders for Storm at Sea.

There are 4 more borders left. That may seem like a lot, but it needs that many so it will fit on our queen sized bed. My Guy asked that I make sure this quilt has more drop on it than our current quilt so it overlaps the dust ruffle more. Our current quilt just reaches the top of the dust ruffle, so you have to be really careful when making the bed so you don't have mattress showing on one side or the other.
The cutting directions for the Mosaic Mystery Quilt along have been posted, so that's on the list for August. I've printed off the instructions, but that's it so far. I'm looking forward playing with these rich colors.
The Simply Sensational Summer Scrap quilt along with Kevin the Quilter is on the list for this month as well. Clue 1 and clue 2 are making 4-patches.
These are pretty easy to fit in with the other stitching that's going on.
Stitching on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, Wild and Goosey, will continue this month as well.

These blocks take a good bit of time to make, but I'm slowly adding blocks of each color.
The last project on the August to do list is this year's leaders and enders project, On Ringo Lake.

I'm also playing along with Quilting Gail's PHD in 2019. I'm not doing so hot.
I've not added any finishes lately, just two more starts for 2019. So it's doubtful I'll earn my quilty PHD this year, but it's been fun and motivating to play along.
That's my list for August. Hopefully your list is shorter and full of almost finished projects.
