October Laundry List Post!

Hello all...
I decided to break up my post this month and just have a post for the linky party and explain how I didn't meet any main goals this month! lol

And yet I am still happy about my progress!  Because there has been progress on each goal... and I can see how THIS month will now bring my first two goals to a FINISH!


First let me share about the Vintage Star Wall Hanging I am working on... 


I had hoped to finish all 12 stars for the quilt... but at present I have these 3 to go along with the 3 I showed last month...
I am using black calico fabrics from my stash for the large diamonds and fun vintage fabrics for the triangles at the center... These have been fussy cut to the right and left... but the one below is some precious fabric my friend Wendy sent me... it was just a fat quarters worth so I am using it sparingly... but I thought a little new with the older fabrics might be fun... what do you think???

Next is how well I am doing on READING!

I have spent several days we needed for traveling to different places this past month to get in some reading time... this month I have been reading Judy Martin's book on making Log Cabin quilts :)
This month I focused on color value and how to sort and store your strips once cut... This is a GREAT book if you want to make a log cabin that isn't rumpley ;)

Still working on...

My quilt history as a blog page addition to my blog... I have 4 of the 14 I have done/am doing documented... hopefully once I finish the Byrum Family Quilt more will get done on this project :)

Byrum Family Quilt progress...

Here is most of the whole quilt...
I decided to start on the side blocks ... the star blocks .. each one has a name and special fabrics picked for it... I am quilting each a little differently based on their design... instead of an overall design.  So far this is what I have...






























And I saved the funnest block for last...
 Here is a close up of the center of this block...
And once I finish these blocks it is off to the top then the bottom.. finally I will make it to the tulip corners then the border!  Yippee :)

So then my goals for the upcoming month may now make a bit more sense...
If I can stay on track this month... by Thanksgiving I will have a full finish and a flimsy finish too!

Stay tuned to my quilty progress... :)
