A New Year, A New Finish Along!

Marci Girl Designs
I am excited to kick this year off with a bunch of long awaited FINISHES!
I so appreciate all the hostesses, and sponsors who keep this gig going!
My whole sewing year has become habitually framed by these quarters, and I love that!
To the 2018 Q1 List!
1.  Moda Bake Shop quilt
Ombre Confetti Metallic by V. and Co.
This quilt is pieced, all that remains to be done is quilting, binding and writing the tutorial! 
This will be done in short order!
And I hope you all love it!

2. Seeing Stars
You might take note that this has moved to the top of the list!

3. Friedlander HSTs
I foresee finishing these in list order!

4. Graded Linen Plus
Mmmmm! This patient love child of a quilt!
I scored on a great sale of Essex at Modern Studio Fabric,
so there is nothing holding me back on this one!  Be still, my heart!
I happened to find Modern Studio Fabric via Instagram! Janean is streamlining her shop to specialize in linens, shot cottons and basics...you may want to check out her website...she is wonderful to work with!

5.  Hunters Star

I am still figuring out a palette and pull for this one...but it is a custom quilt, a "cousin quilt" if you will to the first quilt on this list...so it will be made!

6.  Great Grandmother's Dresdens
Out of 5 small tops from 20 blocks, I have finished 1 and have 4 to go. 
I really, really need to keep after these and get 'em done!
I don't foresee getting more than one this quarter, but if I do, I will count each as a separate finish.

Sew there it is!
We can do this!
Make yourself a list of projects YOU would like to finish in the next 3 months, and link it up this week! Each finished project is an entry for some great prizes at the end of the quarter, so why not?

Beautiful collection of WIPS. Love the common palette throughout. Good luck with your goals. Thanks for being part of the linky party on behalf of the 2018 FAL hosts

I love your list! So, are those actually your great-grandmother's Dresden blocks that you're finishing into quilts?
