October one monthly goal

 I didn't finish my one monthly goal for August until September, and, I didn't even make a goal for September. I have 45 of my own quilts in the 'to be quilted' closet. Which is ridiculous. I have set a goal to work on the longarm with my own quilts at least 30 minutes each day until the end of the year. I wonder how many I can do with just 30 minutes. I am also hoping that once I start I will just keep going past 30 minutes. But, we are still finishing the garden.

Read about the start of this almost amish here.

My plan is to quilt and bind this quilt for my one monthly goal at elm street quilts in October.

I have 5 quilts I am focusing on right now 

1. sea swept just needs backing and binding and a turn on the longarm.

2. fish school

3. scrappy mountain majesties is an older UFO I want to get to the top stage

4. boho heart is a QAL with my Friday quilting friends

5. and labels and prepping my quilts for the quilt show
