Here is where I set my August goal, and below is my August finish!
This project was started way back in March as part of a Guild sponsored workshop.
Actually, I chose fabric and prepared strip sets even earlier in the year.
As you can imagine, finally finishing feels FAN-tastic!

I have fallen in and out of love with it a few times as I worked.
Luckily, I'm in love again!
My husband built a frame so I can mount the quilt before our Guild's annual exhibit in November. The frame will give it extra presence when it's hung.
In the meantime it is laying flat on my sewing room floor. In the way. Guess I'd better paint the frame soon and get on with it.

Feels like I need a plan. BUT, I'd like to keep with the spirit of the project and at least attempt to work without one.
This is going to take some time.
Needing a break (Ha...I know! Three strips, and I needed a break!), I slipped out to the Gnome House and finished a customer quilt this afternoon. It was soothing to do a simple pantograph on a simple quilt.
Guess I'm back in the swing of quilting after a summer of travel, surgery, family, gardening, and cooking. Yesterday I even deciphered a pattern and made a sample block for a workshop I'll be teaching in October. (Still more prep to do, but at least I know the pattern works!)
