My 2018 FAL Goals for Q1
Can you even believe we're here in January 2018? Honestly, time is flying by. It's time to round up the projects I'm hoping to finish between now and March 31: my Finish A Long Goals List.
First up, we're carrying forward the Canadian Sampler.
I've actually changed my mind about the setting, so I need to make some setting blocks. But the fabric for those is bought and ready to go.
Next, a sample for a class I'm teaching at my lovely LQS Cherry Tree Quilts. It's a project from Make It, Take It: the Bigmouthed Thread Catcher designed by Krista Hennebury. My progress shot:
And third, just to make this a stretch target: I finally have a plan for these amazing Painter's Palette Solids from Paintbrush Studios and the deadline for submitting my quilt to Quilt Canada's National Juried Show (to be held this year in Vancouver!) is rapidly approaching (January 31!!).
I'm working full-time outside the home again, but it's a more regular schedule than when I was doing part-time and contract work so who knows? Maybe I'll be more productive than 2017. We'll see!
There's still some time to link up your list of proposed finishes for Finish A Long Q1 2018. Go here to link or here for more details. We would love it if you joined us.
