Sew Many Plans - August 2012

There are now quite a number of projects on the go in my sewing room and there are still all sorts of plans whizzing around in my head for more.  So, I thought I'd try out a new wee monthly feature to encourage me to be sensible about my planning and to ensure that not too many WIPs become UFOs, and that occasionally a UFO even ends up finished!

August is going to bring two weeks off work and hopefully a nice little package of sewing time, so for this next month's plans I can afford to be a little more ambitious than usual - 

Grey wonky block quilt for my brother and sister-in-law - finish it. It just needs the binding and label handsewn on.

Orange/brown/aqua ladder strip quilt - again just the binding and label to handstitch in place to finish.

Bee Block - hipBees is finally off the starting block (no pun intended) in August with Reene as our Queen Bee for the month.  Reene sent us this Summersville loveliness to play with make her a house block with, so I want to make sure I get that completed for the first ever hipBees quilt - yay!

"Ruby" Wedding Quilt  - this will be a gift for my cousin's marriage in September.  I'll be happy enough if I can just get the quilt top pieced in August.

Gift Quilt - Decide on pattern and fabrics for another gift quilt to be made in September/October.  I'm currently considering a few of the patterns in this book as options, but we'll see.

Recycled Shirts Bed Quilt - make a start deconstructing shirts and cutting for blocks.

Hexagon Quilt - this quilt has been on the go for two years now on and off.  I would like to shift it from the UFO pile again back into the WIPs.  

So, looks like I have a plan. Ambitious, yes, but hopefully because I'm due some down time it'll be possible.  Time will tell ...


  1. Wow! That's a lot of plans :) Looking forward to seeing what you create for me :)

  2. No harm in being ambitious! As long as you enjoy what you are making!

  5. What a great list. Anything made from Ruby will be lovely. I have made a couple of quilts out of that book, they are lots of fun to do
