Q1 Finish-A-Long Goals

Finish Along 2014
Ok, I’m jumping in with both feet and setting some goals for the quarter to link up with Katy at The Littlest Thistle.  I’ve tried this link up before and failed big time, but I think this in combination with A Lovely Year of Finishes I might be more successful this time. I’m also setting much more reasonable goals this time!

So here we go, my goals!

1. I need to turn these lovely fabrics into a zippy pouch for a swap.

2. Anne has requested a Giraffe Hoodie. I have purchased enough giraffe fleece to choke a horse and a wonderful pattern from Fishsticks Designs, all I need to do is get sewing!

I need to turn the fabrics below into an awesome quilt! (I have added extra Riley Blake Fabrics from my stash, so not all the fabrics in the picture are original to the challenge).

My design idea has changed slightly but I would like to quilt and bind this one before the end of the quarter. I already have a recipient in mind for it.

I was going to have 5 goals, but I actually finished my 5th goal yesterday before I linked up, so I can’t count that one! I will show it to you when it is ready to ship off!

Thank you Katy for hosting, I’m ready for some awesome finishes this quarter!

    Yup, combo is a great way to go, that’s what I did last year 🙂 Good luck!

    That’s a great idea – quarterly goals. Ugh, I’m going to have so many goals, I can’t do them all soon. LOL

  4. Vera says:

    Your star is great!

  5. Rhonda says:

    Thanks for linking up and thereby spreading the word. I hope you achieve your goals – I usually meet one or two (so glad we don’t get cut for what we don’t get done! Lol)

    I am combining the two too. I hope it works. You have set some very reasonable goals and I hope I have too. Good luck to us both!!! 🙂

  7. I did the same thing finishing my 5th goal before link up, ha ha. Nice to have your trial run already gifted so you can be motivated to finish. Most of my trial runs but go to waste.
