Q3 List for 2018 Finish-A-Long

My Q3 list and my Q2 list didn't change much.  Work was crazy busy.  Summer is in full swing.  I hope I have a few finishes to show.

 I made progress on my Go Four It quilt by adding another row. 

I'm linking up on Ella's blog for the Q3 Finish Along Goal Setting Party.


I got a LOT of applique done on one of the current projects in my Sew To Go bag.  These are for a baby quilt called Catchin' Some Rays.  I need to do some flowers next.

I got found an old cross stitch project from the 80's.  I hope this to be a Q3 finish.

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).

The embroidery on this crib quilt is complete.  I need to get it on the longarm for the next step.

Here's another crib quilt that has all of the embroidery complete:

I have three jelly roll rugs planned.  I got the pattern recently from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have my Best Press and iron ready to go.  I have cut the cream strips.  I'm going to try to make three rugs that have watermelon as the color inspiration.  I will be cutting scraps and using them up to make these rugs.  No fabric will be purchased.  I have a "helper" that will be cutting strips of left over batting for me as well.  I have tons of batting piece parts that will do the trick.


This QA with Pat Sloan quilt top is complete.  It needs quilted and bound.

I'd like to finish this big card trick quilt for charity for my local quilt guild.

 I need to get caught up on my mystery quilt so graciously led by Kevin the Quilter.

I need to get caught up on my Gypsy Wife QA.

 I could work on my 100 Modern Blocks City Sampler quilt.  I haven't decided on a setting just yet.

A little project is this ruler purse.  The directions are kinda sketchy...  I don't know how many rulers are in each purse if you double them or not.  Gotta research that.

I forgot to add this WIP to my list...  I won these orphan blocks from my guild.

I'd love to finish my Garden Party (pattern by Bonnie Hunter) quilt for my friend her May birthday.

I need a few more circles for my Picadilly Circle quilt.   This is a slow-process quilt...

I'm working on the cross stitch on this pillow sham.

I have a lot of fun projects to work on.  Here's my whole list... 
Beware if you're a one-project-at-a-time person!

  1. You are a brave woman, I don't think I have the guts to type all my quilt projects out. I think I would need a friend to hold my hand. I love, love the four patch one at the beginning. The colors sing to me. You are awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  2. You made my day by posting your project list! I don't feel so all alone good luck!

  3. Wow Kathy good luck with your quilting. This is a very big list!

  4. Hi Kathy! I definitely understand long UFO lists, although my list is somewhat shorter. Good luck! Sandy at

  5. I need to bite the bullet and make a TOTAL list myself. You have so many beautiful projects pictured. I think your red and white Pat Sloan quilt is fabulous, and I am going to like that baby quilt - even without flowers, I like it! So much beauty in one post!

  6. That's quite a list! But so much variety, there should always be something to do when you've got the urge. Thanks for linking up to the FAL, on behalf of the global hosts. Have fun with your projects!
