My One Monthly Goal for November: JUST FINISH SOMETHING!
Ok, specifically, finish the task I started on my birthday (which was in the end of May)…
Finish testing my Penguin Postcard Quilt pattern, create a PDF a PDF of the pattern, and upload it to share on this site!

I received a postcard from France 4 years ago, and have wanted to turn it into a quilted wall hanging ever since. 😳 Decided to sit down and play with #QuiltAssistant today. Finally starting to make my dream come true! This is my progress after an hour of work. 👉 Swipe over for a picture of the reference postcard 🐧🐧🐧 🔸🔸🔸 #quilting #fpp #paperpieced #paperpiecing #penguins 🐿️ Do not disappoint the squirrel of judgement 🐿️

I worked on this all summer, then stopped at the very last piece. Which technically piece A, since I’m still learning how to properly “name” the sections when creating a paper pieced pattern. I put it off because the fabric I chose for the water is directional. It’s beautiful fabric, and I used it to guide the rest of my fabric choices for the piece. BUT directional fabric
can be is a huge headache when paper-piecing.
I joind a Sew-A-Long in August also… One thats traditional piecing, which means different needle, different thread, different sewing machine tension… really just more excuses to not paper piece.
I need to just bite the bullet and do it!
Then it’s just a matter of combining all of the files (instruction, diagram, pieces) into one PDF. I havent used CutePDF before, but I think that is what I’m going to try.
My goal is to get the tis up and ready to share by Cyber Monday!! That’s less than 3 weeks away, oh dear. But I can do it. Stay tuned!
