Today's works-in-progress

Before I started this weekend, I made a list of some of the projects I wanted to work on and what I wanted to accomplish. As of today, 3 of the 5 goals are complete (Clifford's quilt top done, Fall Frolic's A block pieced together with 18 HSTs were 1 & 2). Today I worked on the third, which was prep the July calendar block for blanket stitch appliqué and do the paper pieced basket bottom for that block. Well, I actually got both July and August prepped, and was a little surprised at how well it all went, only having to rip out a couple of stitches along the way. Here they are, and now I have some handwork to do before finishing piecing them into their respective blocks.

But before I pull them off the wall, I'm going to pull out that quilt that needs binding and work a little on it this evening. Really it shouldn't take but a few evenings of work to sew the binding to the back, and I am determined to get that done this month! Claudia, you're absolutely right, and that's what I'm going to do - little goals of binding work, then my reward is hexies (or appliqué or whatever). :)
