Q3 Quilty Goals for 2015

I've found that in order to make clear progress on projects - and not get caught up in the excitement of starting another new project - that I need to set goals. This year, I am taking part in the quarterly finishes link-ups with Adrienne at On the Windy Side.

Ashley's Quilt

I'm calling this Ashley's quilt for now - because my friend Ashley asked me to make it - but that name is kinda dull....The quilt idea however, is not! I took two bags of her boys' baby clothes, and chopped them into either 6.5 inch squares or 3 inch strips. One side of this quilt is the squares in a 14x9 grid. The other side is the 3 inch strips on a diagonal. This needs to be finished mid-July, so it's an easy first finish for the quarter!

Neutral Log Cabin

This quilt is for my sister and brother-in-law, who will celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary in August. I don't know if it will be finished by then, or if I'll be heading back home to deliver it - but I do want to finish this soon so I can definitely deliver it at Christmas!

As You Wish Quilt

I started this quilt only 2 weeks ago after visiting friends who told me their daughter loves this movie. I've had this pattern on my radar for two years and I keep showing it to my family, but needed a kick to get started. I have 2 character blocks done, one more half done, and another is ready to sew. I really can't wait to get this on my bed!

Row by Row

Last summer I collected several patterns for the Row by Row Experience, but only sewed one. This summer I intend to collect more patterns as I am exposed to quilt shops. (I know, it's such hardship!) I really need a few more quilts for the trailer - so this is a great way to try new techniques and create a memory quilt of my journeys the past 2 years.


So that's a fairly modest finish list. Four goals in three months is quite manageable - if I don't get distracted in the meantime :) Have fun challenging yourself to making (and keeping) some goals!
