Get it done! July / August

I just looked up my "get it done" list for July, and surprisingly, I actually stuck to it and got everything done!

1-3. Finish quilt for quilt shop.  Since I'm just assembling the top, this includes finishing the top, making the (pieced) backing, quilting and binding it.  I think that's at least worth 3 items :)  Done, done, and done :)
4. Finish quilting bear paw.  It has to come off the long arm in order to finish the other quilt, so this was an easy choice.  Done

And, I even did one more, which was on my June list and never finished - Hunter's Star is quilted too.

And now what's next?
  1. Storm at Sea is on the longarm, so I want to finish quilting it
  2. Finish labyrinth top, and quilt it
  3. finish binding Hunters Star, and Bear's Paw
  4. bind Storm at Sea
Drop by Judy's blog to see what everyone else accomplished in July.

Editedto add pictures - because Mary asked :)


  1. Congrats on getting all of your list items done! :)

  2. I have a question for you: Have you ever seen the Ricky Tims DVD `Grand Finale`.
    If you have not, then I suggest you get it. I bought it (and I do not have along arm!!) But it`s a DVD full of magic! He shows you how he marks his quilts, how he makes them so pretty and, the selling point for me - this I did not even realize was on there - he shows how he binds his quilts. He did a big project, start to finish, in about 4 hours! Uh, What!!! And he is DONE.

    So, I am going to be re-watching this thing (over and over.....) and I am going to lean his technique. And with the beautiful quilts you are going to be doing and are doing, I thought if you did not know about his method, I thought it was a really good way to get our things done - and uh, show worthy even!! lol!!

    And I love to read that you are sticking to your get-it-done plan and doing it!! yeah!!! Rock this summer and make it happen!!! Ten cheers to you!!!!

  3. Congrats, Done is Great! Pictures would have been nice. I'll have to look at previous posts.

  4. Congrats on getting your goals and to-dos done!

  5. Krista, You really stayed focused. I am giving you a high five here! Glad you added pictures too.
