Finish Along - Fourth Quarter Goals

Since the third quarter wasn't very productive on the finishing thing {because of the little, insignificant, moving-halfway-across-the-country thing}, I'm posting this early and getting moving on the list.

Once again, this is a repost of my neverending UFO list, with a few specific items highlighted as must-dos in this quarter.

Family T-Shirt Quilt #2 - in progress {my only finish last quarter!}
Chevron Baby Quilt - cutting
Matching PJ set - ordered
Gobble Gobble Mini - ordered
Pillow Shams - ordered
Vera Bradley Stars Quilt - ordered
Witch Table Runner - ordered
H is for Henry - binding
Squadron T-Shirt Quilt - ordered
How Charming Twin Boy Quilts - ordered
Rainbow Boat Quilt - piecing, due Nov. 15
Wedding Quilt #1 - cutting
Wedding Quilt #2 - ordered, due Jan. 15

I'm kind of freaking giddy about how awesome this came out. Like, I can't describe how much. It's a level of professionalism that I never felt my quilts had, because I couldn't free-motion quilt at home and my straight lines were...boring. And usually not very good, with puckers and all. All the sudden, I feel like I'm making REAL quilts.

And kids, this is just a panto. Wait until I get the nerve to really quilt something. I'm studying up all the free-motioning quilting blogs and practicing doodling with my elbow off the table. {I'd go get some of the books from the base library, but the government shut down. Libraries are non-essential.}

And oh, there will be a finished post tomorrow. Because when you're this giddy about a quilt, you get the binding on that.very.night.

  1. The free form looks incredible!

  2. That's quite a list! Love the star quilting and your Swoon quilt. You'll be an old pro at the free motion thing before long.

  3. Great aspirations! Nice job on the quilting btw!

  4. LOVE the free form. Love!
    And holy lists Batman! Although I'm intrigued by the Star Wars and the Mason Jar items...

  5. Epic! Sorry to hear libraries are non-essential. Wish Congress was non-essential! Can't wait to see finished projects.

  6. OK, this is the longest list I've seen yet. Your swoon quilt is very nice. I look forward to seeing your finishes this quarter.

  7. Your swoon caught my eye right away. It's gorgeous. Happy quilting!

  8. Looking forward to seeing and reading about your Swoon in the Festival. I should put together a neverending UFO list. Gook luck with all of your finishes.
