Q4 Goals for 2014

I've seen a few bloggers making quarterly goals, and decided to join in for this last quarter of 2014. There are a few rules for these goals:

  1. the goal must be a work in progress, not just a plan to start and finish something
  2. you have to link up a goal list at the beginning of the quarter
  3. you have to link up each finish at the end of the quarter. Each finish gives you one ballot into the prize drawing.

So I looked at my pile of project boxes on the floor and thought "Which ones am I going to work on in the next four months?" Or more accurately "Which ones did I want to finish as Christmas gifts?"

In no particular order, here are my goals!

Christmas table runnerChristmas table runner - needs border, back and quilting
string bags goalstring bags - need binding and handles
fire quilt cornerFire quilt - needs backing and quilting - kid REALLY wants this!!
block bagsBlock Bags - needs quilting, sides, binding and handles
cabin pillow goalLog cabin pillowcase - needs borders, back and cuff
red/white/black blocksRed/White/Black blocks - this collection of BOMs and shop hop blocks (more in a box!) can become a quilt!

Six goals, four months. And only 78 days until Christmas - that's what facebook told me this morning!! I think five are doable, the r/w/b quilt is the stretch. There are a few other gifts I'd like to whip up, but since I don't have any fabric pulled for them yet, I'll keep those secret for now....

Ever make a list and feel you might have bitten off more than you can chew?
