Finish-A-Long, Quarter 3 Goals

fal-q3 goals_2013

It’s that time again, time to set out some goals for the next quarter.  The rules state that they have to be projects that you need to finish, and since I’ve been laid up with a foot surgery this summer, I’m repeating some of the projects from last go-round, that still need to be finished.

The repeaters are the Hunter’s Star (really, it’s so close. . . yet so far), the Lollypop Tree quilt, and the Friendship Quilt.  The Lollypop Tree will require me to be all the way healthy, so I’m not even sure I should put it on this quarter’s list, but I certainly don’t want it bumping into the next, where holiday fun things take time away from quilting. So here it is.

New to this list is my Four-in-Art quilt for August 1st’s reveal and while I’d like to add on November’s Art Quilt to this one, it’s not started yet.  You know the rules.  I am also making up a little quilt with citrus colored fabrics that Laurel brought to me post-op (to cheer me up), and I’ve had fun making the stars (it’s also a Schnibbles quilt).

I’m also making a quilt with Anne’s Design, from SpringLeaf Studios–the Facets quilt is so intriguing and so fun.  She provides multiple ideas for you to create; this is just one of them.

For the first time, I’m including two handmades on the FAL list, as I see that this is a possibility in the FAL Universe.  I’ve had the pieces cut out forever to make this Pleated Tote out of Keiko Goke fabric.  Time to finish it up.  Likewise Hot Mitts for Rhonda–fabric pinned early in June, but not yet completed.  It’s awaiting quilting and construction.  Time to get that out of the sewing room and off to Rhonda (it was her birthday present–which was last month–!).

And that’s the beauty of Finish-A-Long (FAL): to get things finished and done and out of the sewing room, as Leanne says.  Join up with your goals *here* at She Can Quilt, and get some of your projects finished!

  1. I’m amazed at the number of projects you and others get done in 3 months. (I think I’m slow with one hand-quilted quilt in 3 months.) I like the looks of your citrus block and the pattern. It will be a fun quilt. The others look bright and fun, too (except the owl, which looks very serious).

    I hope your foot is feeling better and that you’re getting around a little more easily than a few weeks ago. Maybe you’ll be on two feet again in a few weeks? It seems that doctors say “6 weeks” before surgery, then after surgery they add another 2 or 3 weeks to the healing time — at least that’s my experience. I hope it’s not so for you.
