Q4: Finish Along To do list

Here is my to do list for the next quarter of the 2013 Finish Along at She Can Quilt. However, I have several Christmas gifts to work on, so I don't know how much will be accomplished from the list.

1.  These have been cut since I first discovered the Scrappy Trip Along craze on Flickr--back in January!  These strips have been moved from the chair in my craft room to the guest room, back to the craft room when guests arrived and now, I want to actually work on it! I actually got to put two blocks together this past quarter! I love it!

2.  A lap quilt from a pattern titled Three Bean Salad by Miss Rosie.  I loved the colors of the sample so much, I decided to replicate them!  This is partially pieced, one I usually take to the guild sewins.

3. A quilt top made during Pleasant Home's Sew Scraps Along 2012. The top is actually all pieced, I just love this picture, so I need to quilt and bind it.

4.  A quilt top started during Thought and Found's Oh my stars BOM last year. I only have about eight of the fifteen LARGE stars completed.

5. I hand pieced this sampler over 17 years ago. It was a class I took to occupy my time while my husband (then boyfriend) went away to college. It needs to be quilted and bound.


6. I actually bought this top at a auction my guild held.  However, I want to do some redwork in the open blocks and then quilt and bind.


7.  I finished this top in February. Now it needs to be quilted and bound.

8. Star Surround QAL.  I am not happy with the yellow fabric for the surround. It was so much brighter when it was folder up! I also mixed up where I placed those color corner pieces. So, I kind of set this aside.

9.  Another QAL that I started but then fell behind.  I don't want all of these projects to just start piling up.

10.  A Christmas gift I started back in March. I set it aside because first I was looking for the red flannel and then I kept looking for a white with snowflakes to mix in. However, I have decided to just go with these fabrics. They look much prettier in person-I will have to take a picture in the daylight.

11. Another baby rag quilt I had cut out and then set aside. Since more babies are coming-I better get these made and ready! (No babies for us, but others in the family.)

12. Yet another baby flannel cut out. These were set aside because I needed to get some more blender flannels.  I can't wait to work on this one! Love the patterns.

13. This is one of the first quilts I ever started, over nine years ago!  I have most of the blocks together, I just need to sew them together and piece the border. This one is a wall hanging. I kind of have put off finishing it because I wasn't crazy about the fabrics anymore, but it is starting to grow on me again.

I still have a few more projects started in the closet, but think this is a pretty good list for now! I can get those others photographed for next year.


  1. This is quite the list! I love that you have old and new projects on here. I really like the colors for your scrappy trip. Looking forward to seeing how it comes together!

  2. Oh You have some very cute projects on your hands! You can do it!!
