Finish Along 2017! Q1

Nice button Leann!
I am sew thankful to the hosts and sponsors of the 2017 Finish Along! I was thrilled to win a prize from Mariners Compass Quilts for FAL 2016 Q3, with only one finished entry!
I had a dismal showing for Q4...ZERO finishes from my list!
I am ready to rumble this year, and especially this quarter!

1. Nash's Irish Chain
The quilting is in-progress! That bodes well!

2. Ben's Peaks and Paddocks
Top is finished. Backing is purchased and in hand. A finish sounds good in theory!

3. Seeing Stars
Same as #2 above. 


4. Doe/Carkai HST
Top is finished. And I really love this one, which is highly motivating!


5.  No Name Big Block
I have cut most of the fabrics for a fun new design in my notebook...an outside entry, but if I didn't think there was any chance of finishing this, I wouldn't put it on the list! Fingers crossed!

6. Baby quilt for Wee Shelley
Due the end of March, my niece's second child will have a quilt from Aunt Sarah to welcome him or her! Of course! Thinking I may use this pattern, which I saw on Debbie/A Quilters Table blog. If not this, something else, but a baby quilt for sure...
Egads!!!  I just came across this Medallion UFO...it would be perfect for a baby quilt as is, maybe? Yes or no??? 

7.  Southwest Wedding Quilt
Another much loved niece is getting married 1 April....sooooo, if it isn't finished this quarter, I'm in trouble! I have a design made, and will use an assortment of Me + You Indah batiks! 
I am very excited about this one...so out of my usual! It has a name, but both it and the design are kinda a surprise. You will have to trust me on this one!
8. The Meadow Mist Mystery Quilt!
I think the design is revealed in February, so there is a pretty good chance of finishing this one too!

9. Rainbow Heart Trio, pattern by Twiggy and Opal
I know these will be perfect to fill in spaces between the larger projects...and they are irresistible!
This may end up being 2 or 3 finishes...so, 9, 10, and +/- 11!


Whew! This is my longest list ever!!! Wish me luck! I am off to oil my machine!

Make'er Hum!

You have been busy and it appears you will be busy for a long, long time! I wish I could say I have something in the works or the wall or the closet, but I haven't bee quite as productive as you!

So many great projects! Good luck with your finishes.

There are some really lovely projects on there. I think my favorites are doe/ carkai and the stars :) So I wish you all the best motivation and fun to finish some or even all of those.

Looking beautiful. I think that medallion would make a great baby quilt! (FYI, this one was not numbered... so you have one more possible finish than numbers.)

GOOD LUCK!
