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.
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.
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.

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.
I love quilt fairies. Yesterday at the #wollongongmqg charity sew day our group of 3 picked fabrics from our donated vintage stash, cut & laid out the single bed sized quilt top, then all I had to do was sew while one fairy managed the layout & fed me the pinned pieces and another took them away and ironed. So awesome and after 6 hours we had the top & backing done, all basted and binding ready to go as soon as it’s quilted. Go team!
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.
