First Quarter List for 2016

     For the last quarter of 2015 I managed to complete 3 of my 4 items,  which I think is pretty good, so for my first quarter list I'm carrying over the one almost finish and adding another 4 or 5 projects.

     The carry over is the pick up sticks quilt.  I'm in the middle of quilting in the ditch and plan to do some free motion quilting in the sashing.

       My daughter has been asking me to quilt this next quilt for a couple of years.  It's an oversized Churn Dash quilt.  The pattern is from Stitch Magazine and was designed by Alexandra Ledgerwood.  I told my daughter  I would get the quilt  to her in February.  I hope I can keep that promise.

    I've also got this baby quilt to finish the quilting on.  It's a simple brick pattern.   I stopped working on this quilt when it was about 2/3 quilted because there were no babies coming at that point.  Now there are a couple of babies coming so I think I better finish it.

     I'm working hard to catch up with the Midnight Mystery Quilt hosted by Cheryl at MeadowMist Designs.  I just finished trimming these square in a square blocks.  I'm ready to start constructing the blocks (November's directions) so I'm just a bit behind.

     Number 5 on the list is to make the graduated star block from the Fabri Quilt block challenge in to a quilt.  I've cut out the fabric into strips but I'm thinking I might have to switch out one of the fabrics now that I see them in the photo.

     I'd  also like to make a cover for my Quilter's Planner.  I think I'll use this Lizzy House Fabric for that.

     And finally I'm pretty sure this flannel will make it's way into some baby items this quarter.

     Well I think that is more than enough so I'll end the list here and link up with Leanne at She Can Quilt and with Lorna at SewFresh Quilts.  What are your plans for this quarter.

Great projects! I remember Alex's quilt and wanted to make it so badly. Some day! So much fabric, so little time. Good luck with finishing up!
