Q1 Finish-Along

she can quilt

There are lots of people linking up with Leanne, our new hostess for the finish -along. Rhonda did a great job hosting it last year. I wish I would have linked up more, but decided to start the first quarter with high hopes of finishing some easy projects.

Most of my finishes this quarter will be quilting the tops that have stacked up the last few months.

1. HST BOM...this top needs borders first and then needs to be quilted and bound. I have the borders and binding, but need to decide on the backing.

2. Flower Girl quilt for my granddaughter. This one will be top priority because it needs to be finished by the first week in February. I still need to make 11 10 more (I made one since the photo was taken) blocks, sew them together with sashing and borders. This one is going to my longarm quilter, so I need the top finished by next week.

3. Ah, the #scrapptripalong. How I have enjoyed making this scrappy quilt. It needs to be quilted and bound. I need to order fabric for the backing.

4. A few months ago I made two of Jeni's Giant Star quilts with my lovely stack of Art Gallery Indie fabrics. This quilt top has been completed since this photo was taken, so it just needs quilting and binding.


5. And so does this one.


6. Probably the second most important thing I need to finish is to write the instructions and make a few sample clutches for the class I will be teaching at the Sew South Retreat in March.

7. I think this is a doable list, but I also have to make 2 Stitch Tease giant blocks/strips (which are still a secret) and keep up with my other bee, The Modern Stitching Bee.

Wish me luck.

I'm wishing you luck, but I know you don't really need it- you can do it Di! I love the flower girl quilt! Very pretty!

Trudi said...

That's as ambitious as my,list! But I feel sure you will achieve it all!

Katy Cameron said...

Good luck with your list! I have my star tops completed and one is about 2/3 of the way through quilting, I just need to baste and quilt the other one, but it has rather less urgency!

Beautiful tops, Diane! I'm looking forward to seeing them all finished!:) It's totally doable if you don't start working on something else :)

Wow, you are on a roll! Everything looks great and it seems like you have a great plan to get it all done! My favorite is the flower quilt for your granddaugther, she will treasure that for years to come!

Dianne Neale said...

I can't believe how quickly you've done the scrappy quilt. You should be able to whizz through the rest no problem!

Lisa C said...

They are all very pretty. Can't wait to see Flower Girl all finished.

Your list is certainly full of lovely projects. I expect you will do well and I am glad you are finishing along.
