Q4 Finish-A-Long List

I'm in! 2018 FAL

Well, the last FAL list of the year! I’ve been debating whether or not to make a big list or small, but I think that for now my parameter will be that the projects on this list have to be more than halfway to completion. A partially pieced quilt top is good, but fabric that is cut but not yet sewn just adds clutter to the list. With those limits in mind, here are my projects for the 4th quarter of 2018.

Q42018FAL
List is L-R, row by row.
  1. Blue Dancing Cats Baby Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind. The nice thing about small baby quilts is that I can use a single piece of fabric for the backing!
  2. Pink Dancing Cats Baby Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  3. Pinwheels and Polka-Dots Baby Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  4. Ugly Flannel Baby Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  5. Nautical Nine Patch: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  6. Floral Checkerboard Baby Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  7. Bri’s Quilt: partially quilted, need to finish the quilting and then bind.
  8. Cheerful Primaries NICU Quilt: Top is done, need to find a back, sandwich, quilt and bind.
  9. Raspberry Kiss pot holders: one pot holder is quilted and just needs to be bound, the other still needs to be quilted. (The photo shows the first one bound, but it looked terrible so I picked it out and need to replace it now.)

I have a couple of other goals for the quarter that won’t result in fully finished projects, but I’d like to list them for accountability.

  1. Seeing Stars Quilt: finish piecing the blocks and make the top.
  2. Rasberry Kiss Quilt Top: I have the fabric starched and cut and plan to make this my retreat project at the end of the month. My goal is simply to get the top pieced.
  3. Rosy Plus Quilt Top: I pulled this old monster out of the UFO box and want to at least get all the fabrics prepped, cut and laid out. I don’t know if I’ll finish the top or not. (I had the fabrics partially cut, but am combining a couple of UFO projects to just get the fabric out the door, so kind of need to go back to the drawing board.
  4. Big Block Retro Quilt: Honestly I’d like to get this fully completed by Christmas for my grandmother, but not sure if that’s realistic. I hope at least to get the top pieced.
  5. Make small and large design boards for portable sewing days.
  6. Practice free motion quilting.
  7. Improve and step out of my comfort zone with walking foot quilting.
