PHD Update

I did make a bit of progress this month!

I got all the binding sewn on Geese on the Trail!! So happy to check this off my list! Sitting in car line can be productive!!

One Monthly Goal

One of my goals was to finish the Island Batik Marvelous Mini Challenge, which was done. But the other goal was to quilt the color challenge quilt, but that did not get completed!

August OMG Hugs and Bow-Tie Kisses – Done!

For September my goal will be to get the September Tool Talk Blog Hop bound and posted. I would like to get 20 blocks of Madelyn’s quilt finished. I’m starting with the Tangled Star blocks. I love this block and AccuQuilt made cutting all these pieces so easy!
