Finish Along Quarter 4 2017 Goals!

Last quarter was a bust. Nothing finished. I did finish one top that was on my list, but otherwise the list is right where I left it… But I’m going to switch up a few things!

I have two holiday quilts I am super excited about making! A Halloween quilt and a Christmas quilt!

I want to start and finish my Christmas quilt! I’ve been thinking about it all year, but haven’t been able to get to it!

And I said I wasn’t going to do this, but I’m super excited about this Halloween fabric and quilt design I have up my sleeve!

Then there are two do Good Stitches quilts that I have to finish before the end of the year!

AprilDoGood-Minis-ImFeelinCrafty

And here’s a sneak peek at the next Nurture Circle do Good quilt. I have the top done for this one. I think the back might be the bottom fabric in the Halloween pile.

My second one for this year is the star quilt! I can’t wait to get this one put together!

This one is a new one! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this one. It’s our Seattle MQG BOM this year. And I’ve been keeping up with this one, so it shouldn’t be hard to get this one done!

And this is the reason I didn’t get more on my list done last quarter! I started this one! The top is done, so it’s close to being finished!

And now back to my nice long list of WIP’s that have been waiting around to get finished!

MightyLuckyJan-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

And there’s this one I’d like to finish from a year ago. It’s slated as a gift….

I’ve picked this one up again and hope to finish it ASAP for the whole gift giving thing!  This one uses the quick curve ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful

The last three I want to keep working on, or start, but I doubt I’ll finish them!

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

GreyQuilt

This is an old one that has been sitting on the shelf for about 3 years. Sitting there with a front and back done! So it just needs a little quilting love… It’s basted. It’s getting so close… Like right next to my machine!

And that’s my ongoing to do list! I know it won’t all get done, but I like having all my WIP’s in one To-Do-List!

Finish Along Quarter 3 2017 Goals!

Last quarter I got three of my to do list done! I got the Inside Out Pineapple Bed Runner, the Chaos Quilt and the Raindrops on Wildflowers quilt finished. Pretty good… So once again the list is going to be very similar to my last one!

MightyLuckyJan-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

And there’s this one I’d like to finish from a year ago….

I don’t know if these actually count, but the two above I only need to make the quilt tops. The first one is waiting on me! The second one isn’t quite ready!

The last three I want to keep working on, or start, but I doubt I’ll finish them!

I want to start and finish my Christmas quilt and I want to have it done for next year and at the rate I’m going, it won’t be done, unless I do it now!

TechnicolorBlocks-WholeCircle-ImFeelinCrafty

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

And that’s my ongoing to do list! I printed my list to help keep me on track near the end of this quarter. My friend laughed at me that I keep a copy of my quilting to do list in my purse!

Inside Out Pineapple Bed Runner

And you guessed it, another quilt!

Another one to mark off my Finish Along to do list! This one I am in love with, but for some reason wasn’t able to photograph it as wonderful as it really is!

RunnerQuilt-Full-ImFeelinCrafty

My stepmother told me she wanted a quilt made with my Inside Out Pineapple quilt pattern. I love the pattern, of course. You’d hope I would since I made it… But it’s so time consuming! So I was contemplating how long did she really want to wait on this project! And luckily before I asked that question, she clarified that she only wanted a bed runner. Oh, yes! I can do that without taking forever!

RunnerQuilt-Bed-ImFeelinCrafty

RunnerQuilt-BedFull-ImFeelinCrafty

A bed runner… It does look pretty, but I’m still curious about why… You’ll notice I don’t make many mini quilts. A couple of reasons… I don’t have wall space to hang them. And If you aren’t hanging them on the wall, what is the point of them? They don’t really serve a purpose. People make awesome mini’s and I love seeing other peoples minis, but for some reason when I quilt, I think it needs to be able to be used…  I don’t know why I think this way… So I’m still kinda miffed at the bed runner concept. But it turned out great!

RunnerQuilt-Details-ImFeelinCrafty

Her other request was for it to coordinate with the cross stitch pillow I made her a couple of Christmas’s ago. So that narrowed down the colors! And you know me and my white backgrounds! I was trying to figure out how to incorporate the white background and still coordinate with the pillow. Then my friend Debbie asked where the white was in the pillow! Ummmm…. there isn’t any. So what was I doing. Then I tried it with the grey background and, OH YES!

RunnerQuilt-GreenBlock-ImFeelinCrafty

The grey is my favorite staple, Sprinkle by Cotton and Steel! Love it!

RunnerQuilt-BlockYellow-ImFeelinCrafty

RunnerQuilt-BlueBlock-ImFeelinCrafty

Besides the grey, I used a combination of yellow, green and teal solids and prints. Prints! Another quilting concept that I don’t use much! Yes, it still kinda reads as a solid, but I did branch out and use prints with my solids!

RunnerQuilt-Folded-ImFeelinCrafty

RunnerQuilt-Label-ImFeelinCrafty

Throwin’ in my label picture!

RunnerQuilt-Home-ImFeelinCrafty

And here it is in it’s new home! It looks quite nice and does coordinate with the pillow. My step mother was very excited and put it on the bed as soon as she got home from visiting us! I’m glad to know it was well received and will be well loved!

RunnerQuilt-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

This was a great project to use the Inside Out Pineapple Pattern for! I got really quick at making it, but I also didn’t get burned out with having to make too many!
