FAL Q3 Goals

This list of goals will be very short and simple in the hope of keeping myself focused this quarter.  These three quilts MUST be finished.  There is no reason why they are still sitting around my sewing space instead of being all soft, quilted and in use.  Well, beyond the crazy warm (by Irish standards) weather we have had this week.  I do not want a quilt anywhere near me right now!

Here we go, then.  This quarter I will finish:

1. Liberty Love

This simple top has been waiting draped over the shop door for months.  I need to make the back, layer, quilt and bind it.  I even know how I want to quilt it, so I just need to get a move on.   Its really the design of the back that's holding me up.



I am super duper in love with this quilt top.  Yes, the top is finished.  The back is 85% finished.  It just needs to be layered, quilted and bound.  I am thinking of sending it out to be professionally quilted I am so in love with it.  I just need to figure out how I would like it quilted and then take it from there. 



Now this is just shameful.  The top is finished and I do really dig it...even though it coordinates with nothing that is in the house.  Details, details.  I have no thoughts RE the design of the back at all, so I need to start there.  It too needs to be layered, quilted and bound this quarter.


Fingers crossed I can get these three off my list to move onto a few new projects.  It will be so nice to finally have them as a functioning part of my home.

To join in the FAL fun, hop over here.  Once again, Leanne, thank you for organizing us.

Good list. Get Electronica done first. It is amazing!

Nicky said...

How about a giant electronica block floating on a background? Or just stripes as in the blocks going all the way across? Or four giant blocks??

The star one - how about four fabrics one for each quadrant!??

Remember Susan's KISS rule!

They all look great project so please finish them and lets see the end result!

Love the star ...............just to say got my fabrics they are gorgeous Cindy now to cut them !!!!

Leanne said...

For a while the back were getting me down so I bought some nice sheets and used them. They were soft and nice colours. Now I feel ready to make nicer backs again. Maybe you need to consider something like this?
It is an excellent list and electronica would make a great picnic and camping quilt if she does not work in your house.

Lovely projects on your lsit - how about some of the lovely extra wide fabric that Kaufman, etc. does? That way you can get on with the quilting, etc. and make fancy backs when you're feeling more inspired...

pennydog said...

Ooh yes get em all done! Looking forward to seeing them all finished and quilted

Catrin Lewis said...

Such beautiful quilts! I really like how the blue sets the liberty off. Whatever you come up with for the backs I'm sure they'll be wonderful.

Ruth Bourke said...

Wow that electronica quilt looks amazing. It wouldn't exactly match anything currently in my house either but I absolutely love it and I'm sure you'll find the perfect spot for it. Can't wait to see it finished.

Easy peasy!!!

Annabella said...

Go for it Cindy - gorgeous choices! :)

Leanne said...

I would like to see them all finishes, they are each going to be wonderful. It is a very good list.

Katy Cameron said...

Good luck with the list! And co-ordinated bedding is sooo overrated...

Katherine said...

Lovely projects on your list, Cindy! Best of luck finishing.

Like you, I chose a short list this time round with hopes I'll keep better focused and see some finishes! LOL Let's hope our strategy works. ;o)

Kirsten said...

Really love the Liberty Giant Star - good luck with all of your projects!
