Third Quarter List

     I am having a difficult time this year with finishes.  In Quarter One I had one finish and in Quarter Two I had no finishes.  I have moved some of my projects forward though, so all is not in vain.  I have a couple of baby quilts I have to add to the mix for completion this year.  One of these babies, my second grandson, is already a month old so I will add his quilt to the  Third Quarter list.  I have yet to start it but here are some of the fabrics I will be using.  The second baby will be born in August and I have no idea when her/his quilt will be finished.
The Toronto Modern Guild is hosting a curves workshop with Jen Carlton-Bailly this summer which I may or may not be able to go to.  It's on the long weekend in August so Dwight and I might have other plans.  You never know with his work in the summer. This has gotten me thinking about curves and it brought the next quilt to mind.   I thought this quilt must have been on a finishing list before but I couldn't find any pictures of it so I guess not.  I started it a long time ago so I should pay some attention to it. Step one will be to pull these blocks out of the needs to be done pile and iron them.

Here are my repeats from last quarter: 

Another curved quilt:  the clamshell.  You can tell I was on a warm colours kick when I was last working on these two quilts.

Snowflake Shimmer

This charm squares quilt which has now been made into a quilt top and is ready for quilting.

The tea cozy

Circle of Friends:  Also a quilt top, now awaiting to be quilted.

The second quilt top I ever made:  I think it's time I got this baby done.

I know it's a pretty big list but I'll be happily chipping away at it and we will see if I get any of it done this quarter.
I'm heading over to Leanne's blog She Can Quilt to join in the link up for Third Quarter Finishes.


  1. I look forward to seeing you work on these, but especially the baby quilt for your new grandson. I hope you have a great Q3!

  2. So much fun to see your progress. Will be fun to see what your two baby quilts look like. Congratulations on the second grandson! The Snowflake Shimmer is a beauty!

  3. Third quarter of the year! Looks like a great list of things to be working on. I'll watch for your progress.

  4. I wish you the best with your third quarter goals. The leaf one looks intriguing.

  5. Nice pull for your new grandsons baby quilt, looking forward to seeing what you make.

  6. Lovley projects on your finish it list - really like the circle of friends blocks.

  7. Good luck Lisa with your projects and thanks for introducing me to the 2017 Finish-A-Long. I am writing up my own list!

  8. I *LOVE* the look of that petal on grey fabric. I will look forward to seeing more of that. And while I've never had a class with Jen Carlton Bailey I have heard many great things about her techniques and patterns. Good luck with your list!

  9. A nice list Lisa. I would choose one on the ones that needs the least work first and get a finish, then move on to your favourite, favourite projects are so much easier to work on than the ones we are neutral about. Good Luck with your goals.

  10. It's a big list, but how nice to have all these lovely projects waiting in the wings. Any progress is good and I think none of us get as much done as we would like, just on account of real life and its constant interventions.
