2014 Finish Along, Third Quarter Goals

     It's time to set the goals for Quarter Three of the 2014 Finish Along hosted by Katy at The Littlest Thistle.  Despite finishing only two of my five goals in the 2nd Quarter I'm going for six goal this quarter!  This gives me lots of options.  I'll start with the three projects I'm carrying over.

1.  Swoon.  A couple of quilters managed to complete their Swoon quilts in the second quarter.   I hope to follow their lead and get mine finished this quarter.

2.  Penny Patch:  I still have some blocks to construct before I can put the top together.

3.  Hexagon Quilt.  I did make progress on this quilt.  The top is together. Once I find backing fabric to go with it.  I'll be able to finish it up.

 And the additions are:

4.  Double Wedding Ring.  This one is on the hand quilting frame.  I'm loving making this quilt for my son and his future wife.  It needs to be finished in August.

 5. The Staple Dress.I don't make a lot of clothing but I love this pattern and this fishy fabric.   If I want to wear it this season I'll have to get moving.

6.  I'm  definitely ready to try my hand at Improv Quilting a table runner out of these Oak Shot fat eights.

This is quite the list and I don't expect to finish them all but a girl can dream can't she?


  1. This is such a lovely collection of projects. I like your swoon fabric and I ADORE your double wedding ring. The fabric looks so lovely. I've always wanted to try those shot cottons too. I bet they look wonderful all sewn up.

  2. The DWR is just beautiful and so perfect that you are hand quilting love into every stitch. I look forward to seeing your Staple dress!
