A Lovely Year of Finishes October goal met!

Last year I think October was my most productive month of the year with 25 finishes, but this year has been a lot different.  Chasing a toddler and a preschooler takes a lot of time and energy.
I'm feeling great that I finished my October goal to piece, quilt, and bind this mini quilt for a store sample. It's laundry day by Kim Diehl.
I also finished a Christmas quilt top for a store sample. I'm currently working on two quilts for family friends for Christmas.  Marbles out of the I♡ Puppies by Heather Mulder Peterson and a Modern quilt out of Horizon by Kate Spain. All the piecing is done and I'm ready to put the tops together.
One of my favorite sewing projects this month was working on a purple radiant star with 6 colors that I'm doing on commission. It's a challenge,  but I've really enjoyed making the diamonds,  now to get it squared up and cut the background.

AYLF October goal

This month I hope to get back in the sewing studio & do some creating.  Tonight I finished a sample I should have been done with a month ago, but it's finished!  Luckily this next sample is miniature & I'm excited to work on it. So tonight I figured I would start sewing the hst's together. Excited to say I got them all sewn! Tomorrow I will cut & press & trim & be ready to sew the top.
