Can you believe the year is half over?!! Time to really focus on getting projects finished.
I didn’t get nearly as many things done as I had listed on my 2015 Finish Along Q2 list; which I will admit was definitely overly ambitious. But I did manage to complete 3 small projects and two larger projects so I’m going to count Q2 as a success.
Now it’s time to post my Q3 Finish Along Goals list. And once again, I’m going to be overly ambitious as I can always roll any unfinished ones over to Q4.
I’ll start with the large projects.
First up is my DP9 quilt. It’s also my A Lovely Year of Finishes July Goal.
As of last night, I’m half way through hand-basting it. I plan to finish the basting today so I can start quilting.
Once my DP9 is finished, I’ll be moving on to my next oldest unfinished quilt… Smiling Sunflowers.
And then it will be my Holiday Celebrations quilt’s turn. The quilt top and back were made for the my day of the Tree Bird Blog Hop. I want it finished and ready to use come Christmas time and not be trying to finish it at the last moment along with any Christmas gifts I might be still be working on then.
The last big project will be to finish the quilt top I have planned for these Spring Bloom fabrics that I won.
I have a plan, I just need to get going on it.
I still have four small embroidery projects that need to be turned into something.
These large embroideries are back on the list as well.
I had decided to use the Seeds of Friendship to make a bolster for the bed in the guest bedroom but it got moved off the sewing machine to a shelf and got forgotten while I was working on my Sampler Table Runner.
The plan is still to turn it into a bolster. I recently won a mini charm pack from Fat Quarter Shop for participating in the Ho Ho Ho and On We Sew monthly link up. Once it gets here, if the fabrics work the way I hope they will, this will be off the shelf and on the guest room bed.
These fabrics were another win back in April.
These are destined to become a bag and other accessories for me to take to writers’ meetings.
The above list gives me a good mix of large projects and small projects to work towards finishing before the end of September.
If I finish the first two quilts and all the embroideries, I won’t have any UFOs made prior to March of this year. It would be an amazing feeling of relief to be able to accomplish that!
