2019 Finish-A-Long Quarter 4 Goals

I thought I'd try something a bit different to help me finish some of my WIP.  I seem to be much more productive when I have firm deadlines.  So I looked through my pile of works-in-progress and made a list of some I'd like to try to finish in the next few months and I'm linking up with the 2019 Finish-A-Long Q4 to try to get more done.

Here is my list of proposed finishes for Q4.

1.  Pink Grapefruit quilt

I am taking a class with Coleen Merte in November.  Everything for the quilt needs to be pre-cut before the class, so surely I can finish a quilt top in a short amount of time, right?  It will just be the quilting and binding that will take some time.  But definitely doable.

2.   FQS mystery BOM

It just needs the binding stitched down.

3.  Kimberly Einmo class quilt

I want to do custom quilting on this one.  I just haven't worked out what exactly yet.  The goal is to quilt and bind it.

4.  Polar Bear quilt

I was planning on quilting this last week until I noticed that it is super wavy and crooked.  So it needs to be ripped apart and re-sewn.   Then quilting and binding.

5.  Lucky charm quilt

Another that I want to custom quilt but can't decided on a design.

6.  Cross quilt

This one needs to be quilted and bound.  I'm not in love with the backing fabric I bought, but can't find anything to coordinate with the top.  I do have a quilting plan already, so that's a plus.

7.  Strawberry quilt

This one is for my daughter and she wants custom quilting, so I've been dragging my feet for a very long time.

8.  Summer book club blocks

I started making some blocks this summer but got busy doing other things.  I need to make a ton of blocks and then figure out from there what to do.  It's unlikely this one will get done this quarter, but a girl can dream, right?

9.  Churn dash mini

This one needs borders of some sort and then quilting and binding.

10.  Range kit

Cut, sew, quilt, bind.  I can't wait to make this, but I've been holding back because I feel like I need to get more things finished first.

11.  Antique blocks

If you've followed my blog recently, you have read about these several times.  I think they are now sufficiently cleaned and the smell has gone away, so I will need to tear some apart and re-sew the center seam, then create a quilt top with them. If I am going to do this one, it will need to be done before February, so it seems like a great one to add to the list.

12.  Purple flower quilt

Quilt and bind.

13.  Crabby mini

Fabric has been pulled and pattern prepared forever.  I just need to do it.  I find so much of paper-piecing to be so intimidating.  Not the sewing itself, but the figuring out the right way to put the fabric and then removing all the paper at the end.

14. NASA quilt

The binding needs to be sewn down.

15.  American Jane Cupcake Mix 3

There is no way this will get done since one of the fabric lines I want to include doesn't come out until February.  I am listing it here because I am currently working on it and am intending to continue working on it throughout quarter 4.

Clearly I have a lot of quilting to do.  You can see I'm great at making tops, but not so quick at turning them into quilts. Let's get quilting!
