Fourth Quarter Finish-A-Long



Well, it's time to set goals for the fourth quarter for the Quilter in the Gap Finish-A-Long.  It's hard to believe that this is the last quarter - I sure haven't finished up as many projects as I had wanted, but I have finished up some (without starting any new ones), so I'm happy.

First goal (surprise!) is my son's Blue Bayou quilt.


Yes, I know - this quilt has been on the goal list every quarter so far.  But this time, I know I will finish it - I'm at the binding stage, so I have no excuse!!

Second goal is Stars Around the Garden BOM quilt.  (I really am going to have to do some digging before this is done, so I can tell you the designer's name).


This one, I know I will finish as well, because the quilting is done, done, done!  Chelsea at Pins and Bobbins has done a beautiful job and I got it back in the mail yesterday.  So, all that needs to be done is the binding.

Then, there is this quilt:

 

and its border:

That shouldn't take too long to finish up - once I actually get to work on it!

And, if I have time, I'll work on the Freebie Fifteen:

I have three more 12 inch (complicated) blocks and a bunch of 3 inch quarter square triangle blocks.  And sashing - which I think I've decided to make light grey / taupe, so as to keep the overall quilt in soft colours.

So, that's it - four goals.  Will I accomplish them?  Who knows?  I am the slowest quilter I know!  But, if I don't, then I'll just move 'em on to the next goal setting period.  It's not a race, right?

I really love the quilt for your son and the last one, although they are all lovely! Good luck on your plan.
