Q3 Goal Setting Party

The year is half over.  I'm thrilled to say I have had SEVENTEEN finishes for the first half of the year!  I don't expect this quarter to be productive for finishes because I have several customer quilts to longarm.  BUT I still have am ambitious list that I am working on.  I'm linking up with Karen this time for the Q3 Goal Setting Party at CapitolaQuilter.

Here's a few things I would like to move closer to the end (and have some finishes) for this quarter:

1.  I'd like to finish this Big Flower Basket quilt.  It is a charity quilt for my lqg that will most likely be for auction.


2.  I'd like to finish this Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge quilt.  You can see the details on Pat Sloan's blog, here.  This challenge lasted 182 days.  I need to make a back, quilt, and bind it.

3.  I doubt if I will finish my Garden Party quilt (pattern by Bonnie Hunter) this quarter, but you just never know.  These little blocks get addicting some times.  I like to play with scraps for the RSC17 when making blocks for this.  It is one row shy of being a half done top.

4.  This is another big quilt to longarm and finish for the guild.  The block is called Card Trick.  I need to make a back for it next, then quilt, then add the label, then bind. 

5.  I may work on my Kite Girl quilt.  All of the girls are now finished, embroidery and all (even though this photo does not show the embroidery or the orange Kite Girl.  It needs sashing and cornerstones, a fun border, a back, quilting, a label, and binding.  Whew.

6.  I might work on my Fortune Teller quilt (pattern by Cheryl Arkinson).  All blocks are made, I need a back, a fun border (maybe), quilted, and binding.

7.  I'd like to quilt my Homestead Harvest (pattern by Kim Diehl) quilt made it to the flimsy stage.  It needs a back, quilted, and binding.  I'm still not sure how to quilt it.

8.  I'd like to finish my Big O quilt.  I won these blocks in the Block Lotto on 12.31.2014.

9.  Spangled Stars This is my first red, white, and blue bed quilt.  It was part of the Spangled Stars QA at Susan's blog, Quilt Fabrication.    I thought it would be a great quilt for July.  I need to make a back for it, quilt it, and bind it.

10.  Still at a stand still on this quilt.  Picadilly Circle .  I need to finish blocks.  I pulled yellow fabrics in June for the yellow block.  I started this project with the RSC14.  The quilt will be smaller than I like, but it would be a nice quilt to show in the county fair.  They look like this:


11.  The Quilt Doodle Designs 2016 BOM still needs to be finished.  I need to add all the buttons and such.  This is the July APQS goal this month (originally #1 on my Goals list).  Let's do this!

12.  Kim Diehl's Homestead Harvest needs a back, quilted, and binding.
