Quilt Diary: Finishalong 2019 Quarter 2 Goals

Quarterly Goals

Once again it is time to put together the list of possible finishes in the upcoming 2nd quarter of 2019. I will be linking up with #FAL2019.  My host is Capitola Quilter.

I have a lot of UFOs from last quarter to bring forward. Let’s get started!

  1.  Hexagon Charity Quilt.  This darn project is still hanging around.  I set it for my April one monthly goal.  I NEED to get this off my list.  The guilt is killing me! I also added this one to my @sunflowerquilting #ssqfinishalong2019round2 goals.

  2. 2010 New Year Eve’s Quilt.  Another one that has been hanging around.  I did actually work on it last quarter so the guilt isn’t so high.  Just have to finish the free motion and binding. I also added this one to my @sunflowerquilting #ssqfinishalong2019round2 goals.

  3. 2018 Quilters Planner Sew-a-long Classic Beauty BOM.  Still need to assemble, baste, quilt and bind.

  4. Shabby Fabric’s Sunflower A-Door-naments wall hanging.  I still only have to quilt this one and it is done.  I think I will skip the metallic thread and save the thread for another day and project.

  5. Shabby Fabric’s Apple A-Door-naments wall hanging.  I just need to baste, turn, and quilt.

  6. Sunflower Star potholders.
  7. Blue Pinwheel potholders.  I finished one out of the 3 last quarter.  Just need to layer, baste, quilt, and bind.

  8. Autumn wall hanging.  A little work done last quarter.  I finished fusing all the shapes on the pieced background.  Need to applique, baste, quilt, bind.img_1469
  9. Apple Blooming Vase wall hanging.  I have absolutely fallen in love with this series.  The itch is strong to drop everything and work on this one.  The apple one only had the background pieced.  I need to fuse, applique, layer, baste, quilt, and bind this one.

  10. Pansies Blooming Series has arrived and I have just got to do this one.  So I am adding it to the list for this quarter.

  11. Alison Glass Trinket Quilt.  Started the Sew-A-Long in March and we are supposed to have the entire quilt completed by May 20th. I am adding it to the list.  I also added this one to my @sunflowerquilting #ssqfinishalong2019round2 goals.

  14. Easy Pieced Table Runner for May by Shabby Fabric’s.  I watched the You Tube video a couple of days ago and decided I NEED to make this table runner for my kitchen island.  I haven’t decided if I am going with all the purples, but I have downloaded and printed the pattern.

Quarter Two: Work in Process

  1.  Peacock Colorstory Miss Rosie Blocks.  My goal is to finish 8 more blocks this quarter.  I did get them done last quarter 😉

  2. 365 Block Challenge blocks.  I am current for 2019! I still struggle with mitered blocks but am getting better every time.  My goal is to be current on June 30th still!

  3. Halifax Temperature Quilt.  I did finish through August 2018 last quarter as planned.  I need to cut some more triangles because I find making these little blocks as feeder of other blocks the easiest way I get these done.  My goal is to finish September, October, November, and December 2018 this quarter.

  4. Quilter’s Planner 2019 Block of the Month Sew-A-Long.  I am on target!  I meet last month’s goals.  This quarter is to continue being current so that would mean finishing the April, May, and June blocks each month.

  5. Farmer’s Wife 1920 English Paper Piecing Sew-A-Long with Gnome Angel in Australia.  I finished 8 blocks last quarter instead of my 9.  Close.  I am setting a goal for 9 blocks this quarter.  I am working on Block 20 – Churn Dash this week.  I have been pleased with my progress.

  6. Tula Pink Charm Squared blocks.  I started these quilt blocks on a whim but still need to finish them before I lose all the pieces.

As always, I have hundreds of other projects I could finish, work on, etc.  I will stick with these 20 projects.  Good Luck everyone.  The idea is to set a goal and work towards it.  If you make progress, it is a win!
