Friday Night Sew In Goals

Hi y'all!  This week I happened upon a sew in going on tomorrow night.  I got all excited about the idea then never took the time to post about it.  Boy am I running late!  But here it goes...

It is being hosted by Sugarlane Quilts and there are prizes involved!  :)  Yup, just for doing what I'd be doing anyway....sewing!  So, here is what I want to accomplish...

First, I want to finish up the quilt shops for this month's row of the Quilter's Garden Swap.  Deana designed the cutest quilt shops and I've been making mini sized Dear Jane blocks for the quilts in each shop.  Here's Deana's design wall showing all of the rows so far....

Isn't she super talented????  I love this swap so much!  Can't wait to start constructing the houses.

Then I need to make the first block in our Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt AlongJulianna at Sewing Under Rainbow designed this fabulous paper pieced series just before Christmas last year.  She gave me permission to host a year long quilt along to finish up this quilt by next Christmas!!!  This month's block is the Christmas trees.

So, yeah, not all of that is going to happen Friday night.  Let's just say those are my goals for the weekend.  :)  You should come sew along too!  It looks to be a ton of fun.

And if you feel like joining in on the Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along, grab a button and come play!

OMG your not so last minute christmas cracks me up! I saw her posting those blocks and thought to myself, "Well if I quit my job and do nothing but sew I can also add this to my pre-Christmas to do list" and since I like paychecks I decided to forego adding another item to the list. I should be packing to move next weekend tomorrow night but a sew in sounds way more fun so thanks for sharing that!

Your Garden blocks are so cute. I love all your quilt shops. I'm going to make #5 on Monday. That's the goal anyway!
