A goal for May – #ALYoF

3 May

There’s been a bit of secret sewing going on this week but that’s finished so now I need to come up with a plan for the rest of the month. Now that the wedding quilt is finished I’m feeling a bit lost so need to focus and think about what’s next.

I could really do with promoting my etsy shop a bit more so with that in mind I’m setting myself a goal to stitch up a quilt top using fabrics from the shop. I have a few ideas in mind, I have a few blocks I’ve made in the past as testers that could become quilts:

A string block that I made as a test for my month in the Siblings Together bee.  I made another with a solid through the middle and prefer that.  I have a very large bag full of strings that would work well for this.

Back in March on our sewing retreat I made a few retro flower petals, actually that’s not true, I made the parts of some petals!

I also want to make another plus quilt!  So whilst I’m undecided on which pattern I am setting myself the goal to have made a quilt top using vintage sheets by the end of May.  I’m also cooking up a plan for Sew Mama Sew giveaway day which is just a over a week away.

  1. I have a similar bag of strings in my stash, although I doubt it’s as pretty and varied as yours! Can’t wait to see what you come up with before the end of the month x
