Finish-A-Long 2020 Q1 Finishes and Q2 Goals

I have to admit that I prefer last decade’s Finish-A-Long (FAL) format. I’m much more of a blogger than an Instagram poster. I actually go onto IG fairly often, but for some reason, I drag my heels on posting. I think a big part of it is that many of the people that I make gifts for are on IG and tend to see my posts. Most of those same people don’t read my blog posts with any kind of regularity (if at all!), so I tend to share a lot more freely on my blog.

I had 8 items on my FAL Quarter 1 goal list. Here’s what happened with them:

 Stargazer (Modified) Quilt,Finished—blogged and posted on IG

Mime Kitty Quilt, quilted—moved to Quarter 2

Mug Rug—leftover HST of my mom’s—no interest in finishing it right now

Queen Size Medallion Lanterns quilt, Finished—blogged and posted on IG

Sparkler Mini Quilt—on hold for now

“Cheater” Turquoise Christas Tree Quilt—moved to Quarter 2

Reel Time Mug Rugs, Finished—blogged but did not post on IG

Camping Placemats, Finished—blogged but did not post on IG

Quarter 2 Goals

I have TEN projects that I hope to finish by July 8th!

  1. Hayden’s Graduation Quilt—quilted, plan to bind it next month
  2. Vertices Quilt—Quilt Top done and sent to long-armer
  3. Glimmers of Gold Quilt—quilted, plan to bind it next month

  9. Diamonds in the Rough Quilt—Fabric pulled
  10. “Cheater” Turquoise Christas Tree Quilt—Fabric pulled

It’s quite a list, but the projects aren’t super complicated, so I hope to have a successful second quarter of 2020. What do you have going on in the next few months?

April 2020 OMG

My April 2020 One Monthly Goal is to make a simple Sawtooth Star quilt top that will feature a hummingbird print in half of the star centers and will feature coordinating Kona solids in the other star centers and all the star points. This quilt will be for a niece of my best friend, Mary, and she will help sew some of the half-square triangles that will be used in the quilt.

March 2020 OMG Finish

My March 2020 One Monthly Goal was to make a high school graduation quilt top for my great-nephew, Hayden, with fabrics related to camping which is a major family activity/interest as well as some fabrics that reflect a few of his other interests such as fishing, bicycling, and cowboy hats and boots. I used Amy Ellis’ Soirée Quilt Pattern and cut all of the snowball triangles from one fabric (Kona Cadet) with the background fabric being Kona Windsor. It will be a nice size throw quilt at 54” x 72”.
