 What a week!  I'll be glad to see the end of this one.  My Guy is finally feeling much better and thankfully his test came back negative. Thank you for all the moral support and crossed fingers. I'm really looking forward to the holiday weekend. A few days off work will be nice. After this week, a sewing only day is definitely in the cards.  I should decide on my September One Monthly Goal before then.  

Next up on the 2020 Quilt plan is Daisy Chain.

It just needs two borders added, a tan and then a black, to be a finished quilt top.  I've gotten the first two border strips cut, at least one should be stitched on tonight.  This seems like a simple OMG, but borders always take longer than I think they should. 

I've also been working hard on getting my PHD this year. 

My spreadsheet hasn't changed since July. 

But I've been building momentum on those quilt finishes. Storm at Sea is out for quilting.

The 2019 Christmas Mystery Quilt has a back pieced and ready to go, it just needs to be prepped for quilting.

Finally, Frolic is finished. It just needs a back.

If I can keep up the momentum, these four should become finishes this year. That won't earn me my PHD, but it's a tie for the most quilts I've finished in a year. I'll take that.  

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the September One Monthly Goal and with Quilting Gail for the 2020 PHD.  I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for my 10 year blogiversary.

Great progress. After seeing the whole of Daisy Chain, I think you’re right about the tan border.

Love your Daisy Chain. Nice and crisp looking.

That must have been such a relief. I am confident that it was not just the well wishes of your readers but your TLC that helped him recover. Frolic looks fabulous. Just needs a back??? Aren't you going to quilt it? And then binding too? Congratulations on 10 years of blogging. Keep on sewing and stay safe Kate.

Good news on the hubby's health. Definitely make time for an all day quilt session. You've earned it. Have a good weekend and Happy 10th.

Emily said...

Hooray for a negative test result! So glad to hear that. You really do have a lot of momentum going!

Julie in GA said...

You are getting very close to some major finishes! I'd say that a tie for most quilts finished in a year is a major accomplishment!

Glad the test is negative! The Daisy Chain quilt will be beautiful. Good luck on your goal and all your projects.
