To kick off Q1 of the Finish-A-Long, here's my first set of 2017 finish goals:
1. My 2015 VMQG Round Robin quilt. I had this on my final 2016 goals list but I wasn't able to get to it. I've put a small amount of time into it, and I've got a plan for how to build it up to the size I want. Hope to work on that in the next month or so, providing the temperatures cooperate. My sewing studio isn't finished yet and it's cccccold in there even with a heater!
2. My 2015 Bee Sewcial quilt - Winter. I've begun the quilting but I'm not in love with how it's turning out. I'm pretty certain I know the solution (MORE QUILTING! MAYBE SOME BY HAND!) and I plan to get it done.
3. My 2016 Bee Sewcial quilt - Lake Country. Needs only a small block to plug a gap in the layout, then it should be ready to assemble and quilt.
Three quilts in three months? SURE WHY NOT.
Why not add another goal and truly make this a stretch target kind of situation?
4. My 2016 VMQG Round Robin quilt. I moved away mid-year so I sadly had to withdraw my quilt from the group activity, but I plan to add to it on my own using the monthly prompts. I'm pretty excited about this one - what's not to love about low volume prints + bright florals especially Anna Maria Horner florals?
Other projects I'm working on besides these quilts include more pillows (to which I'll devote a proper blog post soon), a mini quilt for the MQG swap, and some garment sewing. I like having lots of things on the go, but with an over-arching plan and I think putting together this list provides the structure I need to motivate me.
I intend to get this blog more active in conjunction with all of this FAL work, too. Stay tuned!
