2016 Finish Along 3rd Quarter List

     It's time to link up the hopes and dreams for quarter three finishes.  The 3rd quarter is always a little tricky because it's summer and I never quite know how busy I'll be with other things and how much actual sewing I can get done:  As usual, I'll start with the leftovers.



     Graduated Cross quilt: tops done and it needs to be quilted.




     I still need to quilt this disappearing nine patch which is a donation quilt for my local guild.  It was my June goal to fmq it but I got very busy and the machine developed problems to boot.




     This years mystery has already started so it would be nice to get last years mystery quilted up.

     Now I do know that it would be a stretch for me to get even three quilts ,quilted in three months...but I'm going to add to the list because you just never know what you will feel like working on.



     The baby quilt is back in because honestly I came so close to finishing it last quarter that it should be finished next week.

      And I'll add the rainbow rose because why not.


     I'll also add in the Clamshell because I'd like to get some more work done on it.


    And the last thing I'll add to the list is a garment because they come together a lot quicker than quilts. I'll be continuing along with the sewing with knits by making myself a Washi dress with this Anna Maria Horner knit fabric.  I know it's a bit vibrant but I think I can get away with wearing this bold colour in the summer and it was on sale.  I'm just risking $17.50 here. Not to mention the fact that I'll be sewing it with my friend Wendy who is a very experienced seamstress, so it should turn out o.k.


     That's it for me.  What's on your list.  Linking up to the Q3 goal setting linkup with LeeAnne at She Can Quilt.

  1. These are great colourful projects for summer Lisa. Good luck with finishing your goals. I've also listed my Mystery Quilt as a finish for Q3 so hopefully we can both cross this one off our list!

  6. a great list Lisa. My mystery quilt last year was a non starter. I actually bought fabric, but didn't start. I wish I could have done the rainbow rose, but was on holidays. Excuses excuses. I love the graduated cross quilt and cant wait to see your dress.

  10. That's a big list Lisa, but YOU CAN DO it! And if you don't, no worries - no quilt police are going to come and punish you anyway. I LOVE that cross quilt - can't wait to see if completed. I have yet to set a goal myself, ever, as far as finishes go. I may have to start doing this soon. I get distracted by new ideas all the time...

  11. Oh man, your cross quilt is fab! And I'm so glad I'm not the only person who hasn't finished their Midnight Mystery Quilt. And yay for such a fun Washi dress. Good luck!

  12. Ambitious list, but hey, it's better to have more on the list than not enough, right? :) My mystery quilt is still folded and waiting to be finished but since it's a queen size top I need to have it long armed so it's going to stay on the UFO list for quite a while.

  14. Love the colors of your graduated cross quilt and your rainbow rose! I have a very ambitious list for this 3rd quarter too and won't get a fraction of them done because its summer and farming season. Good luck!
