😦 I did not make it for November’s OMG. I was supposed to sew 20 pineapple blocks but I only did 10 blocks by the end of November. See my blocks below.
What is my excuse for not meeting November’s goal? I was busy pattern testing a bag pattern by Urbanstyle Jantine. LOL. If you remember, I was sewing up 35 log cabin blocks for this bag. Let me give you a sneak peek on my pattern testing.
I pieced up all 35 blocks and quilted it. I will write more about this bag in another post when Jantine is ready to release her pattern.
Well it is a new month. New beginning. We have plans to meet up our extended family during the Christmas weekend to celebrate Christmas and my sister-in-law’s birthday. What do you give to a lady who has almost everything? After some deliberation, I decided to sew a gathered zipper pouch for her. This will be my OMG for December. I am hoping to sew it in time to make it for the Bag It event too. I intend to follow the pattern by Sue Kim. The tutorial for the pouch can be found here.
For the pineapple quilt top, I am still short of 12 blocks. I do hope to piece this pineapple quilt top by end December. Beside this, I also wish to make a table runner for a housewarming gift. Oh dear, so many goals and so little time. Don’t forget, I have yet to complete my Q4 Finish-Along goals…. See picture below. I am in the midst of ‘nemeshing’ one of the 2 Cambodian quilt tops. I bought a few books by Bethanne Nemesh where she teaches ‘nemeshing’, her unique quilting style. Finishing these 2 tops is one of my goals for Q4. Once done, they will be sold to raise funds for the Emmaus Women’s Centre in Cambodia.
Ok. Take a deep breath. Take one step at a time. Now back to quilting.
