Is it really September already?

What happened to August?  I blinked for just a minute, and poof! another month has flown by.  That means that I have only 3 months left for the Lovely Year of Finishes challenge - and there are WAY more than 3 projects left!
I completely lost track of time last month - I made a few more Dresden plates, but that's as far as that project went..... so, guess what I'm choosing for this month?  Nope, not my Dresdens!  This is going to be a really busy month, and I have too much on my plate already.  So, I'm going to work at quilting the New Year's day mystery quilt that I did back in January.  I posted a pic of the completed top back on Jan. 7th, but I'll save you all the trouble of scrolling back to see it - here it is again:
I layered it a few months ago, and started to quilt it a few days ago, but it shifted horribly, and the few rows that I completed have all sorts of pleats and ripples in it, so I'll have to start by removing the quilting, and then re-do the process.  
We had a demo at our last guild meeting - Sharon Schamber has an interesting way of assembling a quilt sandwich, and I'm hoping to give that process a try.  You'll have to check back to see how it worked for me...
