Q4 Finish-a-long Goals

Time to set Q4 Goals!  This quarter I hope to finish some quilts for Christmas, and have a productive and fun retreat

Quilt #1 – Red/White and Black couch Quilt
This quilt has been on my list for a while now, and it is time for it to be finished.  When it is complete it will be put on my couch.  I used this one as a practice quilt in June and have no intentions to ever put it in any shows.  I just need to bind and label it.

Quilt #2 - Sister's Choice
This quilt is a present for my sister for Christmas, it is a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Sister's Choice.  It is nearing completion and only needs to have the binding and label put on.  I was able to get the quilting done last quarter but ran out of time to start the binding.

Quilt #3 - Science Fair
I still have a ways to go on this one but would like to have it done in time for Christmas.  It is a present for my nephew.   The layout needs to be finalized, then it can be pieced, quilted, bound and gifted.

Quilt #4 – Dr. Who
Next up on my list is my Dr Who Quilt.  It is still in same place it was last quarter, except I did un-sew a piece of sashing that just did not look right.  Other than that I have just been moving it out of my way.  Hopefully in this quarter I can complete the quilting (sashing), bind, label and put a hanging sleeve on it.

Quilt #5: Zig-Zag Batik Quilt
This quilt is black and turquoise with some fabric that I really love.  Once I add borders it is ready to quilt.  I am hoping to have this completed this quarter.  Unfortunately I don't have a photo of this with me.

Quilt #6: Snowball Quilt
So the Snowball quilt would look wonderful on my bed this winter.  I finally added some additional blocks and sewed them all together.  Hopefully at retreat I will add the borders, then it will be ready to quilt.  I want to have this one done this quarter so it can be used when the snow starts falling.

Quilt #7 - Son's quilt
So last on my list is a quilt for my son.  The fabric has been selected and purchased, now I just need to start.  I think I will probably do another Jaybird's quilts pattern.

These I will get to next year.
Grandmother's flower garden – Need to decide on a design
Wall Hanging 1: Totem Poles – need to finish the applique
