I did finish my August Island Batik Project using Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 ruler “Four Patch Square Up.”  You can read more about it HERE.

The Carpenter’s Wheel (Star) is sandwiched … and the thread is chosen and it is sitting at the machine … but not a stitch of quilting has happened!

  • 15 minute days:  January – July: 210 / 212
  • 30 min days/  Aug:   9/9
  • Total days in 2020: 219 / 221
  • Percentage = 99%

  1. A good week for progress even if all the to do’s weren’t checked off. It’s amazing how many finishes you’ve had this year. You’ve done so well at finishing most everything you’ve started this year and that’s an impressive number of projects!
