I try to avoid Christmas gift sewing as it's just stress and pressure I don't need. However at the beginning of the year, I did commit to the Scientist in Training that I would finish off quilts for her writing group buddies who are graduating from collage. The first is finished, I'm still working on the second, Twinkle Stars.
Getting this quilt into finished flimsy state was my September OMG. That didn't happen, though I did make a lot of progress with the assembly.
On the other hand, Vintage Dresses is back from the quilter.
Each dress has been quilted in matching colors with some great filler swirls in the rest of the block. It looks even better from the front. This quilt just needs to be trimmed up and bound. That would be a relatively easy finish for the month.
Also close to being a finished flimsy is Storm at Sea.

It just needs two more rounds of borders added to make it a finished flimsy.
I've not accomplished my OMG for the last two months. My success rate there is 7 of 9 or 78%. That's actually really good considering that my success rate last year with the OMG was 42%. The difference is being realistic about what I can get done. Due to some family issues, I'll be out of pocket for up to 2 weeks this month. Sewing time will likely be limited, so as much as I'd like to pick finishing off Twinkle Stars, that's not likely to happen this month. Finishing off Vintage Dresses is much more likely to happen as I can hand stitch when I can't get to the machine. So that's the OMG for this month, finish Vintage Dresses.
Linking up with Elm Street Quilts. Good luck with your goals for October stitching.
