ALYOF August goal

I'm late posting, largely due to the fact that it's Dragon Con this weekend.
I'll have a giveaway coming.
This post is just about my August finish of the ALYOF.

I set as my goal to get 50 blocks of my Tula City Sampler done.
Not only did I get them all done.  All 100 of them....
BUT (drum roll) I sewed 96 of them into a top.
The layout is not my original idea.  I saw a similar layout by CloudCouCoucrafts.

Here's my version:

I hope to get some tops basted in Sept.
Linking up!

Sigh...I'm a negligent blogger.

Ever have a project that makes you excited and then you try to finish it and it just seems to go off/wonkify?

I have all 100 of my Tula City sampler blocks done.  I'm trying to put it together into a top by tomorrow.

Not sure if it's how I've cut things....bias or something, but I feel like I keep squaring blocks and then resquaring again...and again..and again.


In other news, school has started once again and I've not been sewing much as a result.
Oh..and I turned 40.
...which was the one day in the last 2 weeks I've had sugar and bread.
Trying to get my allergies back in check.

How are you in cyberland?

Aug Goal ALYOF

I'm going to keep it realistic on this goal, as I have to get a ton of prep work done for school starting up again.

I want to hit at least 50 blocks on my Tula Sampler quilt.  As of August 1, I had 5 blocks made.  I have 43 prepped, waiting to be sewn.

I would really like to prep the remaining 50 but that's not part of this month's goal.

I need a little less pressure.  I've been on high octane mode and I have some knitting to do....and a MAJOR bday coming up.
