September One Monthly Goal

It's time to link with Elm Street's One Monthly goal.  If you haven't checked it out, you can join any month, and if you post your finish, you have a chance to win prizes.  I'm always looking for prizes, so here are my goals this month.  I know, more than one, but at least I'll get one done.  

First, I need to finish the Island Batik Steam Engine top from last month.  It's on Vanna the Longarm as we speak, stitching away.  I finally called Handiquilter and their wonderful education department helped me get the Steampunk Gears design from Intelligent Quilting set up for the quilt.  There were a few extra steps that I hadn't learned, and after trying to do it alone, and asking for help on Facebook, I had to call.  Next time, I'll call first. It would save me lots of frustration and about 3 days of time, lol.  I'm hoping it's done for next weekend, which is Spirit Day at St. Anne's Church.  I have a craft booth there, and hope to sell a lot of quilts.  The binding is already made, but I have to make a label.

This was the instruction page.  

I'm still hoping to get the blue and yellow quilt done, and I'm also working on my Island Batik September Child's Play project using Petal Pushers, and the Accuquilt GO! Spider Web Block on Board.  I'm hoping it's done by the end of the month.  I've started sewing blocks.  

But I also have a custom order Flag, and the Funky Friend's Octopus to make, and I can't show the Octopus.  And a costume to finish.  I also have a design chosen for the Island Batik catalog next year, and need to get that started.  So glad I can have Vanna the Longarm quilt while I work on things, too.  

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing...
Thanks for stopping by.
