Brutal Honesty {November 2017}

Yep, it's that time again already! October wasn't extremely productive but I did finish two quilts!

These were my goals for October:

1. Finish Stash Bee Star Quilt - done!
2. Finish October IBA project - done!
3. Start quilting Meadow Mystery Quilt - didn't even touch this project!
4. Put together Top Spin top - done!

1. Farmer's Wife Quilt (RSC 2016 project) -- Hoping to pick up this quilt from Michigan soon.

2. Traveling Quilt Bee (2016) -- My sister has this quilt to add on a section of her choosing.

3. Coast to Coast Bee -- My "quilty wish" was April Showers fabric for my border. I am waiting on a few more packages to arrive before I start!

4. Top Spin leaders and enders -- The top is done! Now to figure out how it will be quilted.

5. Meadow Mystery QAL -- While I wanted to get this done in October, I have things with deadlines to try to get done first so this will have to be pushed back for the time being.

8. Monthly Wall Hangings -- No progress

9. Sew Kitschy Blocks -- No progress

15. Gathering Mystery Quilt with Cora's Quilts -- Taken to the long arm quilter.

16. Magnolia Mystery QAL -- All done with our October assignment and planning to work on November's assignment this weekend.

17 and 18. Blue in Bloom quilts -- Need to finish by mid-December!

19. Secret scrappy leader and ender projects -- tops are complete and ready to quilt!

New projects:

I am doing a Moda Bake Shop project for this month that will be published around Thanksgiving! No other new projects allowed the rest of this year!

Here are my goals for November:

1. Finish quilt for Moda Bake Shop
2. Start December IBA project
3. Start quilting Blue in Bloom Quilts

Happy Wednesday!


  1. On your Top Spin Leaders and Enders, love the color choices. How to FMQ is usually a problem for me. Perhaps you could check out Angela Walters Shape by Shape book. She gives great ideas for squares, triangle etc. You could try a smattering of them on this top.

  2. I always enjoy seeing these updates; I hope you have a great November!

  3. You have made great progress and you have some wonderful projects going.

  4. You've got some very fun projects in the works and did pretty well in October in making progress. Good luck with your plans for November.
