Q1’17 FAL Goals

I currently have a lot of projects in progress and I’d like to focus on getting a bunch of these knocked out.  Lots of good opportunities for practicing on the long arm!

 

  • Bow-tie Quilt:  this is a really old top I made forever ago that I pulled out to practice with on the long arm.  I need to finish the quilting and try some machine binding.
  • Mess-of-a-Quilt:  I started quilting this last summer during my long arm renting time/classes.  I got it about 3/4 of the way quilted before I ran out of time.  I’ll need to load this on my own long arm and finish it up.
  • Bright Squares:  this is another top I made a long time ago from the leftover fabrics from the Bow Tie quilt.  Another good quilting practice quilt top.
  • Death Star:  I saw this pattern online recently, just loved it, and had to make one.
  • Rings:  I’ve had these rings cut forever but need to put them on the top and get it quilted.  I pulled this one out again as a good practice quilt.
  • Black and White Stripes:  I got this one cut recently – it will be another good practice quilt.
  • Red, Black and White Coins:  This has been cut for awhile – another good practice.
  • Caterpillar Quilt:  I just love this fabric.  I pulled it to do a tumbler quilt for a new baby quilt.
  • Circa 1934 Squares:  I have a few more practice quilts to do before I’m ready to tackle this one, but I should get to it this quarter.
  • Sugar Block Club 3.0:  quilt top is done!  Need to decide how to quilt in and get it finished.
  • Blueberry Park Drunkard’s Path:  blocks are done – need to put it together and quilt it.
  • Splendid Sampler:  This has been a lot of work – we are up to 88 blocks, with another 10-15 bonus blocks.  We’ll get to the full 100 by about February or March, and I’m looking forward to wrapping this one up.
  • Bee-utiful Quilt along:  I’ve done 12 of the 20 embroidery blocks, so I’m not likely to get this one done, but I’m enjoying doing the embroidery every night relaxing after work.
