Just a quick post to document that I achieved my One Monthly Goal for September.  These pillowcases were finished pretty early in the month and then I was inspired to move onto other projects in the sewing room. 

 I finished the album blocks I showed in the last post, but as I anticipated, there were problems putting them together into a finished top.  When I was making them, I had trouble getting the block size consistent and that meant that I couldn't get the sashing to line up. So I'm slowly taking the rows apart.  One row of four blocks will become a long runner to go on top of the TV stand in our guest room.  Another group of four blocks will be re-sewn into a square for a table topper.  I'll probably make a runner and a table topper from the remaining four blocks and give those items to my daughter for spring decorating in her apartment.  

I'm off to Bethlehem, PA tomorrow for a class with Catherine Theron, and then to Ocean City, Maryland for a guild retreat from Thursday to Sunday.  Hope all of you are getting lots of stitching done!

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal.
