Quarter One Finish-Along

So it’s been quite a while since I participated in the Finish-a-long and I’ve decided to try something different from the last go around. Last year, I listed a huge number of things on my list in hopes that it would give me lots of options to work on and therefore I’d be bound to get something done on some or even any of them. In reality, I think it just left things too open and let me do the parts that I’m already super comfortable with (ie. stitching things together), while ignoring the parts that challenge me the most or that would just get the project over and done with. This time I’m going to give myself a really limited group of projects – just four – in hopes that in stead of doing a small amount of a bunch of different things, I might actually do all of the things for at least a couple items on my list.

So here’s the goals:

1. Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long Quilt

Q1 FAL projects

This quilt top is my goal for the January OMG – One Monthly Goal – group, but for OMG I just need to finish the top; for the finish-along, I have to get the entire quilt finished! This photo was taken long enough ago that I’ve got units made of all the different components and I only need to put the units together into blocks and then the blocks together into a top and then get it basted and quilted.

2. Confetti Go Lucky quilt

Q1 FAL projects

This is a quilt made using the Confetti pattern by V&Co. and the Happy Go Lucky line of fabric from Bonnie & Camille, hence the name. I’ve finished quilting about 1/4 of this one.

3. Black and White Cushions

Q1 FAL projects

This should be one of the easiest things on any list I might come up with – I just need to make 2-3 pillows (~ 16-in) for friend who just bought her own house. She’s going to want boring black and white, hence this pile, though this isn’t a complete pile of possible fabrics. It is a start though.

4. Constellations Baby Quilt

Q1 FAL projects

And finally, a baby quilt for a little boy who is going to be too big for a baby quilt, soon. I’ve got a pattern picked out that just uses layer cake squares, so I’m hoping to get to this one soon!

And that’s my list for the first quarter of the year. I really, really hope to get them all completed!
