September - Just Three!

Pin It


And time for our "Just Three" report. :)  I can't wait to see everyone's progress and goals!

My report for last month:
1) Make some baby quilts (and crib skirts)

I finished my baby triangles, a love baby quilt, basted a couple more and made one of the crib skirts I wanted to make... as well as a little pillow (to go with this quilt) -- but I finished it at midnight and had to get it in the mail.  But I can't wait to see a picture of it with its new little owner! :)

I also have Scarlet's patchwork curtains hanging. :)

I sit and rock her and look at all the pretty fabric. ♥

2) Make something amazing that I plan to write the pattern for.

Introducing "Linky Love."

Linky Love

I have the pattern almost ready!  yea!  I've got a couple people testing it out now, and I still have to make the cover version, but the practice one, math, and most of the diagrams are done. :)

I'll show you the back... this quilt is going to one of my hubby's friend's wife -- she has been fighting cancer, and Jay wanted to send her something.  Her hubby says she likes U of M... so I chose a palette of blues and yellows, and made the back like this.

I am really happy with the quilting.  I used the little flowers (like I've used before here), and then straight-line free motioned the diamonds.  That was a new trick, inspired by Val's encouragement, and it turned out! 

3)  Make the Treasure Boxes quilt (for the Treasure Boxes quilt along!)

The quilt top isn't done, but I did make the button (over there on the side).  
Look for a coupon code from Julie @ Intrepid Thread and fabric requirements on Thursday!


Now for September's goals!  (No, I can't believe it's September either... or that my baby girl will be turning one next month!!!)

1) Make a little Strawberry Shortcake for Scarlet's birthday, as well as a little dress for her Birthday Buddy (Scarlet has a little friend who lives far away who was born the same day as her -- little Addison will be getting a Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday dress). :)

You can see where I'm collecting my inspiration here...

2) Publish my "Linky Love" pattern.  (So excited!)

3) Stay on track with the Treasure Boxes quilt, and also show you the finished Chubby Stars! :)

I'd say that will definitely be enough to keep me busy!  

We'll be starting Harvest this month too... eeps.

OK -- Link up with your reports!  Can't wait to see them all!

Is it really that time again? Didn't I just post the Just 3 for August? Oh my! I have lost all sense of time. I will have to go later and see what the goals for August were, I doubt I met any of them. I think I only seen the sewing room 4 times for about 15 minutes each time. I will be back later to do my linky.

Linky Love is amazing! That is such a great pattern Tracey, you are seriously knocking them out lately! So proud of you! And I seriously can't wait to see your Strawberry Shortcake in person. I can't believe she is almost one!

The quilting on Linky Love is wonderful, so simple and so effective

Katy Cameron said...

Well done on August, and good luck with September!

Kristie said...

Great stuff :)

Kirsten said...

The curtains are so pretty and I love your Linky Love pattern!

Tamara said...

I usually say i dont buy patterns because they aren't original or are too easy to figure out myself, but linky love!! i love and i plan to buy. It IS original, it is complicated enough that i want someone else to tell me how!! I cant wait. (I will be back later with my just 3!)

Megan said...

I can't believe Scarlet's already 1! I'm excited to see how the Strawberry Shortcake turns out. Good luck with your projects, and THANKS for hosting!!

Jenniffier Kramer said...

Great goals. I really like your pattern and can't wait to see your progress for this month. Thanks for hosting this. :)

Heidi Grohs said...

Thanks for doing this! I really love how this motivated me not only to do the three things, but I finished some other things because all 3 were finished in a timely manner!!!!

The patchwork curtains are beautiful, and the linky love? You know I love!!!!

Kristen said...

Whew, just made it! And I finished things too! Great pattern and can I say that curtain is gorgeous?!!
