I had such a great time when I joined Leanne of She Can Quilt in the Finish-a-Long last quarter, that I had to make a new list for Quarter 4! However, when I sat down to think about what I really think I can get done this quarter, I realized most of the work hasn't been started yet, so I can't put it on the list. The big example is my Cotton Couture Challenge project which is due on November 18th.
My "project" is still a bundle of beautiful bright solids that look like this (image borrowed from Michelle, since I haven't even photographed my fabric yet):
At this point, I don't know what my plan is, but I think I'll probably make something for my eldest daughter, since I've never made her a quilt.
I have lots of small projects that are priorities, but don't count for the FAL since they haven't been started yet. I'll write them out for myself because I really do want to finish them before the end of the year.
1.Fab Bee nature block for Barb
2.Pac Man block for Chris
3.Farmer’s Wife blocks for Barb
4.Tote bag for VMQG swap
5.Halloween blocks for VMQG
6.Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus tote bag for Super Y
7.Totoro costume for Eleanor
8.Cotton Couture Challenge project
9.Christmas ornament for parents
Wow! Knowing myself, there's no way I'm going to get this list done! Better not add to much to my official Finish-a-Long list. I need to focus on my small projects so I'll have space to work on other stuff in the new year.
Just one quilt! If I get really ambitious, I may finish my Easy Going Modern quilt as a Christmas present. Here's the progress I made back in July 2012 when I took Felicity's fun workshop (mine's the ombre version in blue). A quilt top in one day and it hasn't made it further than that in the past year and a bit. I wonder how many of the quilters in this photo have finished their quilts.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is working on in the FAL this quarter!
