Finish A Long 2016: Q1 Goals

I’m jumping in on the Finish A Long for 2016 & linking up with Jess @ Elven Garden Quilts (one of this years hosts) in an effort to set and achieve some public goals during the year. This is by no means my full to-do list but I’ll try to keep my sights on a few achievable projects and maybe a stretch goal for the quarter.

2016 FAL


For Quarter 1 2016 I’m hoping to finish…

1. A quilt for my Nan – the top and back are pieced, the label is made, I just need to base, quilt, bind and gift this quilt.

Time to figure out my backing and get this top basted & quilted, Indi is helpering #helpercat

2. A quilt for my new baby nephew – the photo below shows my drafted pattern and fabric pull but I have since pieced most of the top together, just need to add top & bottom border strips then baste, quilt, label, bind and gift this quilt.

Any thoughts? I can’t decide between a) top or bottom layout and b) purple at the blue end or the pink end

Technically these two should have been done by Christmas but things (you know those pesky things) came up. They will be done this quarter!

This one might be my stretch goal but I’d also finally like to get this charity quilt quilted, bound and donated to the Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild charity quilt drive.

That should be plenty on top of 3 swaps I have due this quarter and the Mighty Lucky Quilters Club, once I clear out a few of those WIPs (and some brain space) I can start to form some more concrete plans for some other fabric selections I have waiting, and possibly a show quilt or two.
