2015 Finish Along Q2 Goals

14 Apr

I’m trying to be a little bit less ambitious but I’m hoping that the accountability will help keep me going! So here are my goals for the Q2 of 2015 Finish Along

Quilting:

finish Mom’s Winged quilt – nearly finished quilting, then I will need to do a bit of ripping before I add the binding

Rainbow Road Tablerunner – I have the pieces cut out and have been using them as leaders/enders – I’d like to gift this to my MIL. This is one of the projects from the Curves Class.

Red HST placemats – there is one up on my design wall taunting me. I have the layouts all figured out, I just need to sew them together. I’m hoping this will be a good project to practice FMQ

Giant Plus Quilt – um, considering how long it took me to just quilt mom’s quilt this is probably crazy ambitious but even if it doesn’t count as an entry for the FAL I would like to at least finish piecing this one.

Retro Flowers Quilt – I bought a curve master presser foot through Massdrop and haven’t had a chance to play with it but I need two baby quilts, and I bought the pattern back when I was doing the Curves Class. I have a FQ bundle of Mormor that I think would work well for this project – I will probably only do 4 flowers (2×2 layout) but I may do 9 (3×3 layout) if I think it needs to be larger. So this one is still in the planning stage.

Spiderweb Strings – I want to use more of the strings that I made my potholder with to make a quilt using this pattern, though I may mod it a bit. Basically my idea is to make blocks until I get bored or until I run out of strings. So maybe somewhere between a baby and a lap quilt?  (also, I should actually finish the potholder but that seems too small to list as a FAL goal. But that comes first)

Knitting:

Mother’s day socks – first sock down, second sock started.

Harry Potter scarf for T – I have the yarn and pattern, have not cast on yet.

Featherweight Cardigan – this was started while I was pregnant with Davy. I think I finished the body and some of the ribbing but I need to do the arms.

Other Craftiness:

Cross-stitch for Jen – I’m making a snarky pattern for my sis as a graduation gift – I’m almost done with the most complicated part. I’m using this cross-stitch pattern: Not my Circus, Not my Monkeys. This is my first cross-stitch project.

Felt food: I made a bunch of felt food for Davy that I need to write up properly. My SIL commented that my youngest niece, A, would love some and so I am making a set for her as well – I’m doing sandwich fixings, pasta, and maybe a few other small things (but probably not sushi since they are vegetarians).
