Q3 FAL Goals

It's time to list the goals for Quarter 3 Finish A Long. I have quite a few things I want to get done this quarter, before I head back to work in October after my maternity leave. This might be a bit of an ambitious list, but fingers crossed I stay on track!

1. Finish the Made to Measure Quilt. Only a couple of borders to go to get this quilt top complete, but the next one is a massive HST border and I'm not quite ready to tackle it yet!


2. Swoon 2013. I have 3 blocks done, and am doing this at a leisurely pace, but really want to have this done for the end of September. If you're still thinking about it, come over and join us on Flickr and on Instagram where we're using the #swoon2013 hashtag - we have almost 90 members Swooning again this year!


3. My crochet cardi for baby R. Not much to do on this now, and I hope to have it finished this week.


4. Placemats for my friend S - just need to quilt and bind these.


5. Liberty drunkards path cushion using these beautiful greys and blues:



6. Hexie Project: think these need to be a cushion (pillow) cover. I have almost all of them basted and need to start piecing.


7. Baby quilt. This has been hanging around unfinished for far too long. Time to move it off the UFO list!



 8. Lastly a carryover from my Q2 list - baste, quilt and bind my Ruby quilt top:



Do you think that's enough? I certainly do! Linking up with Leanne :-)

Yum! Your Made to Measure looks really great. Love the colors! The rest of your list looks interesting, too. :-)

Where did you get your crochet cardigan pattern? I love it. I want to make one! Thanks.

Love the baby blocks quilt! (#7)

And the cardigan .... grandbaby girl is due to arrive in the next ten days, would love to make one for her for this fall (yeah, I could get it done by then).

I think that's plenty - and all really wonderful. Enjoy the rest of you leave. The cardigan is so cute.

Svetlana said...

Sarah, that's a lot of amazingly gorgeous projects you have going on right now. Can't wait to see how you quilt your Made to Measure quilt. I'm sure it will be stunning.

Ella said...

Loving the quilts, especially the marcelle!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

All utterly gorgeous and that cardi is adorable! Looking forward to your finishes :)

Patchwork and Play said...

Definitely enough to keep you 'off the streets' and probably out of bed too! Love the little cardigan! It's a very pretty colour!

Good lord, get sewing! ;-)

All of those will be awesome finishes xxx

Catrin Lewis said...

I love the colours you've chosen for your swoon - very soothing. The baby quilt - I might have to steal that!

Cindy said...

What a super list! Can't wait to follow these over the next few months.

Sarah said...

It's interesting reading these to do lists. Baby R has obviously settled into a good routine and you are getting stuck into some projects during afternoon nap time. Good on you. I miss nap time! Now that my youngest is four he no longer naps and I've gone back to work, so no afternoons free any more.

I love your placemats and baby blocks but my favourite has to be the medallion quilt. I love colours espcially the neutral BGF. Really pretty.

Mary said...

Oh! I am also working on made to measure! Funny I am at the point you are....I have had to really think about the color for the next border - it is a big one. I love the colors you have chosen!

Leanne said...

I love the first quilt, well, I love all the other projects too but the medallions are calling me.
It is a great list, I am looking forward to seeing the finishes.

Katy Cameron said...

Good luck with them :o)

Really love your swoon blocks and your hexies. Makes me want to START a new quilt. I actually have no works in progress at the mo! :-)
