2015 FAL - Q4 Goals

I did a LOT of sewing during Third Quarter, however only two finishes were checked off my Q3 goals list:
Directionally Challenged,
And, My Jaftex celebration quilt, Winter in Bloom,
Small, spontaneous finishes continue to sway me from my quilty intentions...
Still I am happy to have at least a couple finishes that were actually set as goals for this quarter!

I removed those two finishes from my Q3 list and added several others to complete my Q4 Goal list for the 2015 FAL hosted by Adrienne at On the Windy Side:
Listed as pictured: Left to right, from top to bottom:
1.  Donna's Stars! Status: In queue. Four or five more hours of quilting, plus the binding.
2.  Cozy Afternoon Free Quilt Along, by Jacquelynne Steves - flimsy complete.
3.  Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt Along by From my Carolina Home - flimsy complete
4.  Christmas Sampler from 1990 - flimsy complete
5.  Sew Sweet Simplicity. Status: Flimsy complete - on hanger, still needs a back pieced.
6.  Christmas Scrappy Geese - Flimsy is still on a hanger
7.  Summer Gathering. Status: Flimsy is finished, on a hanger, needs backing!
8.  Leaders and Enders. Status: I may have enough blocks to create a setting. I suppose this and my next project are possible finishes, but really not likely!
9.  Daisy Chain Status: This flimsy has been on my mind lately. It is baby-size, but I have an idea for expansion and you never know, I may just pull it out and go for it!
10. Primary Circles Baby Quilt: I think of this one each month when I need to select one goal. Status: Four blocks!
11. Dr. Suess Improv Baby. Status: One little pile of fabric & this photo. Taken to remind me of whatever it was that was in my mind that day, month's ago, when I thought I ought to 'whip' this cutie up for my Etsy shop. Perhaps next time I pull them out, I will just do it!

Additional Goals:
 12. Bear Paw Wedding Quilt for Rhonda and Ernie - I have a stack of Hearty Good Wishes just waiting for this project.
13. My selfish-sewing Churn Dash UFO - 12 Blocks complete, need setting blocks and sashing.
14. Sew Kitschy BOM from 2014 - only 7 blocks are completed:
15. Southwest Summer Block Tote Bag - Block complete, tutorial HERE, I need to design the bag!
16. Strip sets that were started for my mother, but have turned out too busy for her liking. I have a great idea for these, however this is how they looked last time I had them out:

17. Blue and yellow quilt for Mom, something less busy. Status: collecting blue batiks. Will go with large HSTs I think..
18. Twister Blocks UFO's, I have several small panels I need to figure out a new plan to finish. Or, maybe these will be for the next Orpan Adoption event:
19. Tea towel for mom with embroidery from Cozy Afternoon Pattern.
20. Tea towel redwork from Jenny of Elefantz pattern
21. Le Challenge October finish inspired by GOLD- have not started and no idea yet...
22. Aurifil BOM from 2014 - Blocks are various sizes and a setting needs to be designed.

This lengthy list is set to link up with all the cool folks sharing goals for Quarter Four!
 Visit Adrianne at On the Windy Side to join in the 2015 Finish Along GOAL Setting Party!
Thank you for inspiring us Adrianne!

Note to self: Each time I am tempted by a new Quilt Along or Block of the Month, I must return to this post and stay on track!


  1. Another long list like mine! My Sew Kitschy wall hanging is also yet to be finished. We are in the same boat.

    (And thanks for planning for the next Orphan Adoption event. I think I have a project picked out already too!)

  2. That's a scary list - at the busiest time of the year. Pick one and give yourself permission to let the others slide (or go).

  3. THat's a huge list. Good luck with it

  4. Oh my goodness Heidi! Are drowning in those UFOs? LOL. I wouldn't dare list mine, there are so many of them I would just keel over and start something new. Hee hee
