Q3 Finish Along 2016

Q3 Edition: List of Goals!

1.  Red and White Peaks and Paddocks: For son #1 
Top is finished, all it needs is the sandwich fixins and to be quilted and bound :)
2.  Blue and White Irish Chain:  For son #2
Same as is finished, etc. 
Son #2 was not available for helping me with a new picture...his father found it to be a bit more challenging than expected, and gave up ;) Lol!

3.  Seeing Stars:  Same as above....I got a lot of fun in store, eh?!

4.  Barn Quilt Challenge Panel:

Now this is some fun!  I walked into the County Historical Museum just last week, and the Director, my friend and artist Martha Bladen had this packet practically "at the ready" for me! Inspired by a group of Iowa quilters, Martha has taken a photo of a barn belonging to the Historical Society, divided it into 4 panels to be interpreted by various local quilters, a total of 4 sets to be made and auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Historical Society. I have never done anything like this and already have a few good ideas for my panel :) Deadline is 19 September, so it is easily included in this Q3 list!
5.  Block House Frontier Outfit:
Looking ahead to another September commitment, I need a frontier costume! The boys will be so happy to have me in more appropriate attire at the National Muzzle Loaders Association Fall Championship Shoot. I will be working in the Block House, on the Primitive Range
 and really can't keep showing up in shorts or overalls :)
This addition to my wardrobe is very long overdue :)
I am thinking maybe a gray or navy gingham for the skirt....

That's it for me! Fairly realistic expectations this quarter!
If you haven't done so before, joining up with the 2016 Finish Along is a fun way to encourage and be encouraged to get some of those projects done and maybe win a prize for the effort :)
You may find all the details here!

The barn project looks like fun!!!
So does making a costume. I have a cupboard full of homemade costumes upstairs. They too are a joy to make. Why make something boring like a T-shirt when such fun is to be had!?
Yes, a colour like grey or navy will look good in the skirt. See what fabric you can find; I guess the right fabric will dictate your choice.
