2019 Q2 Finish-Along Goals

My goals for Q2 2019 FAL are ambitious! If I finish the five items on my list, I will be Superwoman, but if I only finish the first one, I will call that a success. Sarah at Cedar Fork Stitches hosts the Finish-Along, and you can find details by clicking the button on the sidebar. You can still join in! Read on for my list.

1. If I complete no other goals this quarter, the one thing I will do is make a quilt for granddaughter #1, who has requested a quilt in shades of green (blogged about here), and finish in time for her 18th birthday in late April. I've decided on an old favorite pattern - Yellow Brick Road!

2. I finished the quilt top for the Meadowland QAL on Instagram and need to sandwich it with a backing and quilt it. This will reside on our living room sofa. I will blog details in a later post.

3. Quilt the Eternally Yours quilt blogged about here.

4. Piece the Craftsman quilt I blogged about here, for my husband; all the pieces are cut!

5. I've joined three quilt-alongs: Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict's 2019 Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge with a quilt to be completed by May 15; the 2019 Pantone Quilt Challenge with a quilt featuring Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year "Living Coral" and a deadline of June 14, and Sandra at MMM Quilt's Beothuk Star QAL with a finished quilt by June 15. Click on the appropriate buttons in my sidebar for more details about these quilt-alongs.

I'm considering combining the Pantone Quilt Challenge (see fabrics on the right) with the Beothuk Star QAL (Sandra's pattern on the left)!

How I pictured our retirement. Umm, not happening. ;)

  1. Well thank you for the shout-out on my QAL Linda! I love Atkinson Designs too, have made a couple of hers, own a book too. I badly wanted to do the Plus QAL with Cheryl and Paige but just could not. I love their book and your quilt is beautiful! I know what you mean on the granddaughter grandson requested a new quilt, um late last summer.... Good luck with all of these!

  2. I've made several Yellow Brick Roads! That will go together quickly for you. Love all your other projects and plans, too!

    1. Would you believe this is my first time making one? I've already had to take out stitches because I didn't read through the instructions and made too many sets. I never learn! :D

  3. You've got some awesome QAL projects. Love your Meadowland! On behalf of the FAL crew, thanks for joining in!


Thank you so much for visiting!
