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
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)
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.
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).
