FOURTH QUARTER WISH LIST

It's hard to believe we are into the last few months of yet another year. Quilting a lot is one way that helps me cope with the long, dark, cold days of winter. I love sitting under a quilt while I hand sew the binding. For this last quarter of the Finish Along, I plan to focus on getting several tops done that are hanging in my closet.  Let's take a look at the line-up, shall we?

1. Glorious Fall.  Since this picture, I have added another row but I still want to add a bit more.



2. Scrappy trip (left over from last quarter)


3. Converging Corners  ( also left over from last quarter)



4. These are the scrappy trip blocks made by ladies in a club I used to host. I'm sure they would love to see me get this together and donated  : )


 5. Up Up and Away.  This has been a top far too long


6. Stringy Pinwheels


7.  x and + made from Comma


8. The quilt made from blocks sent to me from the Mid Century Modern girls


9. Lilly Belle


10. Hexi-bets


11. Plus Quilt.  I love this thing so must make it bigger before I quilt it.


12.  Twin Beach House quilts


13. These blocks need to become another quilt for Hospice


What a ridiculous list!!!  I decided to put lots of UFO's on the list this time so I can't get bored. One thing's for sure -- there will be an awful lot of batting and backing purchased over the next few months. 


On a personal note,  I will be unplugging for a bit to concentrate on these two. They get married on Saturday.
So excited for them  : )


Enjoy your week. I'm in for a very busy one!

As I was scrolling down the page, I kept thinking "Ooh, I need to remember to mention that one in my comment, because I love it." But it happened far too many times for my early morning brain. They are ALL just lovely. Best of luck to you on them!

You should finish the x and + quilt first - it looks like a perfect halloween quilt.
