Ready for the 2nd Quarter

Finish-A-Long 2017
I started the quarter with 26+ goals -- after linking up my finishes I discovered that I completed 14 items this quarter that I was able to show and share in the link up and that's pretty good for me. I'm hoping that I will be able to show many more completions in the 2nd quarter and I'm feeling pretty confident since April holds time with my quilt tribe at the Stash Bash and there's always lots of prep that needs to be done before then. So on with the goals.... 
  1. Complete all my secret sister sewing for Stash Bash -- there are several things going on for this goal already 
  2. Bind Mallory's Elephant throw when it gets back from quilting 
  3. A surprise for Stash Bash that is already in the works
  4. At least 3 more color bins for my scraps -- maybe more depending on the color selections each month
  5. Swiss Cross Quilt (May deadline) Swiss Downloadable PDF Quilt PatternThimble Blossoms | Fat Quarter Shop:
  6. Moda Modern Building Blocks abbreviated version -- this happens to be the item for April in the APQ challenge so maybe I can finally get it moving again this month. Image result for moda modern building blocks This is also my OMG goal this month as an extra motivator for getting the modified quilt top completed. 
  7. Tessellations Quilt -- still needs 20 blocks made
  8. Lucky 21 Quilt -- ready for assembly 
  9. Weekender Bag -- only the outer panels are made 
  10. More tunic tops -- I've got fabric pulled for at least 4 more already 
  11. Down the Rabbit Hole traveling quilt -- needs my contribution
  12. Spiderwebs quilt -- blocks need squaring and assembly
  13. Finish Patchwork Swoon -- at the long armers now
  14. Jen Kingwell Holiday Pillow 
  15. All Squared UP with Priory Square 
  16. Plus Side Quilt for Granny -- all the cutting is complete
  17. Broken Herringbone Quilt 
  18. AMH Scrappy Quilt 
  19. Botanics Pendant Quilt 
  20. Crafty Carrier -- this one may need to be made before retreat if I end up taking the featherweight machine.  Image result for crafty carrier

Well 2 dozen plus goals -- it looks like it'll be a busy few months. Time to link up for the quarter


  1. Very ambitious and worthwhile goals. Best of luck completing ... :) Pat

  2. Katie! You have a very ambitious list for Q2! Can't wait to see your finished work! Good luck this quarter!

  3. Quite a list here but it isn't clear which of these is your OMG for April. Good luck with everything (and please do add the link to the linkup to your post. Thanks)

  4. You do have a lot going on! I have a Violet Craft pattern in my goals, too. =)

    Good luck!!!

  5. Wow! You've definitely got some great projects listed for this quarter. I love THEM ALL! That elephant should be an early finish with just the binding to do when it returns. I will be watching to see that one finished. I also favor the bag you want to make the the Tessellations. Good luck and happy sewing!

  6. My goodness, girl, you have a List! But that's key in getting these projects all done. I really want to make a king-sized quilt with the quick curve ruler. That alone would probably take me three months full time, lol!

  7. Ooo. I can't wait to see what you bring to Stash Bash!

  8. Nice list! Good luck in getting most or all done. Can't wait to see your finishes.

  9. Good luck with your 2nd quarter goals. You've got some really fun projects to play with.

  10. Wow, thats a lot of projects. I love the elephant and the tesselation is a favorite, too. Wishing you a lot of motivation and sewing time. Enjoy!

  11. That's a great Q2 list! Your elephant is fab! Happy sewing in Q2!
