Fourth Quarter Quilting Goals – Yikes!


I am feeling like this year is flying by.  There are a few things I know I will get done, the others – handpicking projects – will not get finished this year.  So, for better or worse her is my last list for 2018!

i5oA8lLeSBSMNP3zZXEXkQ1.  Island Batik October Project:  Finish piecing, sandwich, quilt

Wild Things Jelly Roll & 2 Yards light/dark coordinates

3. Island Batik November project:  I think this is the fabric I am using.  It is a log cabin challenge and I have a few ides.

KQjFUusRRWiNdbELkDB28A4.  Island Batik December Project:  I am thinking I will use one of these grouping of fabrics.  The rest is totally undetermined!

img_42395.  Finish Indigo Project:  Well this is a handpicking project from many year ago. It was going to be done by September and has not yet been finished.  I did get much of it cut out, but its a real long shot.  When it went on my list at the beginning of the year, I didn’t know I was going to be an Island Batik Ambassador.  It will get done, and if something wonderful happens, it will be done; I expect it will be next year.

IMG_2382.jpg6. Rocks/Water Japanese Puzzle:  This has a chance, we will see.  Some work is done, but not much.  I can do it on a design wall in Maine, so it will go up with us in the car this weekend.

IMG_0500.jpg7.  La Passacagalia:  Fat chance this will get any momentum.  I am not making the whole quilt but a wall hanging size.  If there were some crazy reason I was doing a lot of hand-piecing, there’s an outside bet.  Put your money on next year for this one – -I would.

8.  Fireburst Mystery:  This one “just” needs sandwiching and quilting.  It should easily get done.
