2nd Quarter Finish-A-Long Goals

It’s that time again. Time to figure out what UFOs are going to get completed this quarter, and time to link up with Rhonda from Quilter in the Gap (I need to put it out there so I hold myself responsible!!!). There are only 4 this quarter because I want to set myself up for success this time (and I know this is going to be a rough few months for me!).

First and foremost I need to finish my mom’s mother’s day gift:

I’ve made some progress on this – I need to hand quilt in the butterflies still and maybe a few hearts if I am feeling extra ambitious.

Next I want to finish a quilt top I made before Anne was born, it is from a kit that my mom bought to make a hospice quilt for my grandma. She died from breast cancer when I was in college and I want to finish the quilt finally.

My third project I can’t share pictures of yet, I need to write the pattern, my second, for a quilt I designed. Wish me luck, my LQS has already shown some interest in possibly carrying it which would be HUGE for me!

My fourth project has no pictures either, but I need to make a pay it forward gift. Gotta finish!!!

What is on your UFO list for this quarter? I also have all my other on going fun projects and what not that I’m always working on so I should be nice and busy for the next three months!

    Looks like you have a lot of fun projects in the works! Your mom is going to love her mother’s day gift. It would be so exciting if the quilt shop carried your pattern! Right now, I am trimming 192 HSTs to 4.5″ for my oldest daughter’s quilt (due in July), and have just pressed all the Cape Ann FQs that I won from Meadowbrook, so I can start cutting pieces for my youngest daughter’s quilt (due in June). I also want to take some time to work on a spring table runner – I found a cute pieced butterfly block on Moda Bake Shop that I want to try.

    Good luck Melissa!! That’s what I should be doing right now ;o)…love your first block!

    Good luck with your projects!! I am sure you will get them done! After I finish up the Spring semester of school next month, I have a quilt to fix, and at least 2 to make aside from it. Hoping to get them done by mid-June. We will see if that happens. 🙂

    Oh those will be great ones to complete – good luck x

    Best of luck on your pattern — I hope the LQS will carry it! (Then I can say “I knew her when…”) LOL
    Love the colors and prints in your grandma’s quilt. It will be sweet when you are done. I think I have a lot of those flower fabrics, in a FQ collection that I built up. I never have decided what to do with it….you’ve got me thinking of how nicely large blocks would show off the flowers. 🙂

    Good luck with your list, especially the patterns 🙂

    I haven’t thought about making goals quarter by quarter. Maybe I ought to, but I try to weave the old ones in with the new starts.

    Oh lord…I have just gotten started in all this and have a list as long as my arm! Completing a project probably tops the list. And I’m sure I will complete several. I am inspired by your ambition! And love the projects. Keep the pictures coming…

    Well ladies I have decided that I need to join you and get some of my procrastination over with. I don’t know why basting the quilt top on, is so hard for me because it sure make the quilt look better when I do it.. I have 4 projects that need to be finished one quilt just needs binding, one needs to be finished machine quilted then bound, one needs to be sandwiched and quilted and bound and the last one, I am working on a Victorian table runner, it is very long and needs all the quilting to be done by hand since it has a lot of curves created by windows. I am half way done quilting and then i need to bind it in short strips since that is what the border looks like…
