Third Quarter Goals for the 2018 Finish Along

     It's time to link up the third quarter goals and I am happy to say that I managed three finishes last quarter and I'm feeling optimistic.  My local guild is having a non juried quilt show in the fall and I've have three quilts that I am hoping to finish up to enter into the show. Technically I've already entered them but if they aren't done I can pull them.  So I'm hoping to finish these first three quilts in order to get them into the show.

1.  The Quilters Planner quilt along quilt.  These are the latest three blocks I have made for this quilt.  I'm making the on point version.  There are 17 blocks in total and I have 11 completed which leaves 6 more blocks, sashing and setting triangles.  This one is booked in with Mary to be quilted on her long arm at the end of the month so that deadline should spur me along.



2.  Postcard from Sweden.  I have the top done and I'm planning to quilt this one myself with my walking foot.   I hope the snow in this picture cools you down.


3.  Mango Smoothie.  This is my Wayward Transparency quilt top.  To be honest this one is stressing me out a little.  I love this quilt top and I'm hoping I don't screw it up when I quilt it with my walking foot.  I also think it would look awesome hanging in a show.  Look more snow to cool us down.  Is it as hot where you are?


     These are the projects I know I will be working on, but I always like to toss in a bunch more possibilities as maybes if I have the time.  So here goes.

4.  The Quilters Planner bag.  Honestly I should just get this one done so I can take it off the list.  Are you getting sick of seeing it yet?




5.  There's the Celestial Plus baby quilt that might draw me to practice some free motion qulting on it.


6.  And there's a challenge for my Modern Guild using Swhe swhe fabric.  I can't show you anything for this one as it has to be top secret so I'll show you some other Swhe Swhe fabric for fun.



Well that's quite the list, but I am ever hopeful.  I'm linking this list up to the 3rd Quarter Finish Along link up and also to the Let's Bee Social link up.

  1. You commented on my blog about my colorful quilts. I can see why because you must love color as well. I love your sampler and those wonderful happy stars!

  2. Celestial Plus baby quilt with free motion quilting on it would look great. A little snow right now might help cool the temps down and add some moisture to the dry soil.

  3. Having time with your longarmer booked will definitely be a big motivator for the QP QAL quilt top. The snow photos are nice and refreshing in this heat, and I really don't think you can mess up the Wayward Transparency quilt. Walking foot quilting will suit it beautifully!

  4. Hi Lisa!
    What a list but you can do it! Your Postcard turned out fabulously and it will be even better quilted. Your Wayward Transparency quilt is gorgeous - a hands down winner I think. Happy Wednesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. So fun to see these beautiful quilts and quilt blocks! I'm imagining standing in front of your Wayward, feeling that icy breeze, since today we are steamy hot here with a very high heat index. I'm not tired of your QP bag; love the fabrics! I'm behind on my QP blocks (and just about everything else too).

  8. Great to see your sewing projects. The Postcard from Sweden quilt is my top favourite followed by the wonderful Quilters Planner blocks - looking forward to see the pieced quilt top.

  9. What lovely quilts these are going to be! Great colours! You'll do a fabulous job on the Transparency; there's lots of walking foot inspiration for it on line. Enjoy the snow- I'm enjoying not having it.
