Q3 Goal Setting -- WIP Wednesday

I have a long list of on-going projects again.  I am sharing in this post what I moved forward this week and things I hope to finish this quarter for the Q3 Finish Along.

I set my OMG goal for July as this "ugly fabric" quilt.  More rows need to be made.

This is my Go Four It quilt that needs finished.

I've been piddling with a bag that I won during the orphan adoption from Cathy who blogs at Cathy's CRAZY BY DESIGN.  It's the Dot Dot Dash Bag.   All the hard parts are already completed by Cathy.  The fabrics are gorgeous!  The bag was designed by Sara Lawson (of Sew Sweetness).   I pulled it out and tried to work on it during June, but our son came home unexpectedly from church camp and I had to put it away. :(

This is the Modern Blocks City Sampler quilt.  Blocks have been done and sitting in a lunch box for a while.

I haven't worked on my Garden Party quilt for a while...  It's a Bonnie Hunter pattern.

Our son would love it if I worked on his Mario quilt.  I may use this on the back of his Ohio quilt.

I haven't worked on my Ohio quilt for a while too.  That would be a really fun summer quilt to work on.  I'd love to have it done by the time we go on our RV vacation at the end of summer.  All of the embroidery on the cities are done.

Here's a string quilt.  The blocks are done but not placed in a setting yet.

Here's some Wings of Spring blocks that I won in the Block Lotto.  They could be made into a quilt.

These Scrappy Stars are another Block Lotto win.  They would make a cute crib quilt.

Good Fortune (a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt) needs finished before Thanksgiving.

I haven't been working much on this EPP table topper.  I just have a bunch of rows put together.

This pillow case needs finished.

I have a Soul Searching quilt that is not finished.  I'll make a pink block this month for the RSC19.

I love this Fortune Teller project.  It just needs a few more easy blocks before it's a top!

I don't know when I'll get to this Kite girl quilt.  It is really cute.  Strings and stems are embroidered.

Catchin' Some Rays needs quilted.

I'm helping a student quilter longarm this bright cat quilt quilt.

This week I finished the longarm quilting on this quilt.  (I do not put customer quilts on my FAL lists because I do not finish them.  I just longarm them.  But I can check it off my list!)

 I'm linking this post to the 2019 QAL Q3 linky party here at She Can Quilt.

I'm also linking this list on Susan's blog, Quilt Fabrication, for Midweek Makers #183.

I made a lot of progress on sewing all of the 2.5" squares for Kevin the Quilter's SSSSQ. 

When I cut my scraps with Accuquilt 2.5" multi die... little pieces are left over.  There were enough pieces to run them through my 1.5" multi die and make 800 pieces for ANOTHER quilt!

For the quiltalong, check out all the details on Kevin the Quilter's Blog.

I have decided that I'm not thrilled with the temperature QA.  I made it into part of April, and didn't like how it looked.  I'm going to see what I need to make a little table topper and change that project direction (design decision...)  It remains on the list.

  1. I don't think I have the courage to list all my projects. I do have them listed in a notebook and where I left off. You are pretty darn brave.

  2. SEW many wonderful projects!! Best of luck with additional forward movement. Hoping for a finish or two (or five) by Summer's end!!

  3. Good luck with your projects Kathy. You've got a lot of choices there.

  4. Love, love the Fortune Teller project. Am making notes to put in my scrappy totes. This is the first time I am posting for the Finish A Long activity. Folks are posting some lovely and interesting projects!

  5. You've got lots of fun projects on the go there! I love all your Bonnie Hunter quilts... :) xx

  6. I'm with compusword: Your Fortune Teller WIP is looking great! I bet it's been a great project to bust through strippy scraps. : )

  7. What a magical collection of unfinished projects, so much to choose from! I hope you will get some finishes this quarter, my favourite would probably be the Go Four It quilt, though the Bonnie Hunter quilts and the Fortune Teller quilts are at the top of my list, too. Good luck this quarter, and thank you for joining in the Finish-A-Long!
