The Chosen Ones
(flimsies to be quilted in August)

If you looked for this post yesterday I'm sorry I'm late! I don't know what happened to the day - poof it was gone!

Here are flimsies pulled from the pile to be quilted in August.

left to right: 3" rail fence swap blocks, Four Seasons stitchery project, Whirligigs with Oh Cherry Oh fabric, X-Rated (enlarged Schnibbles pattern), A Quilter's Journey stitchery project, and an oldie (need to find the stats for this one). Take note there are 6 flimsies shown rather than 5 I promised in Friday's post.

Last week I quilted my "High Cotton" flimsy. This pattern can by found in Kim Diehl's new book, Simple Comforts.

And, I pulled this oldie; "Sweet Treats" by Fig Tree Designs.


I realize I have set some huge goals for the month of August. I work really well when I have a "To Do" list so I'll check them off as I go along and hope that all have been accomplished by the end of August.

I still need to set a goal for Kelly's, Charming Girls' Quilt Club. I've chosen something so I'll be back tomorrow to show that, as well.

Now, if you need me, you certainly know exactly where you can find me. LOL A friend told me one day that I don't seem to know how to do nothing. I think she might be right! ;-)

I hope that you'll leave a cheer or two through out the month of August as I pop in to show you my progress.
*
I appreciate your visit - come again soon!

In Friendship!
