Second Quarter Finish Along Goals

Once again it is time to make goals for another quarter. I love doing this! It's fun for me to pick through my fabric and decide which projects I'd like to focus on. There are 22 in my list but I plan on only finishing about half of them. The trouble is I don't know which half so I included them all just to be safe. I'm linking up with the Second Quarter FAL post. I'm also linking up with WiP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced because all of this certainly qualifies as a WiP. Without further ado here are my projects...

#1 - These 324 I spy squares that I've been collecting are going to be made into a giant picnic quilt for me. I think it's going to be so fun watching parades and fireworks on it and it will give us something to do while we wait for the festivities to start.

#2 - These 81 charms squares are going to be turned into an i-spy baby quilt. I had a ton extra from the fabric I bought to make mine so I'm going to make a small quilt and then sell the rest. You can find the listing for these squares here.

#3 - I'm going to make these leftover 2.5" by 5" rectangles into a baby quilt, probably for charity.

#4 - This is going to turn into the Twists and Turns quilt found on the Moda Bakeshop. I've had this fabric for well over a year now and even had a pattern I bought it all for. Well, I fell out of love with the pattern but still love the fabric so we're going to try again and see what happens.

#5 and #6 - Quilts for my Etsy shop. These two are going to be the Jelly Roll Jam pattern (you can make two with one jelly roll) using the Apple Jack line.

#7 - This one is going to be a queen size using the Simply Woven tutorial from the Moda Bakeshop. I started it well over a year ago and was so discouraged with how the first block turned out I put it away and never picked it back up. Look at it now it doesn't look so bad. It's a little bit off but not as horrible as I remember. Pregnancy hormones may have had a hand in this one.

#8 - This Scrumptious is going to be the Pinwheel Baby quilt from the Moda Bakeshop. The pattern for this one is so adorable complete with tiny prairie points.

#9 - This pile of lovelies is going to turn into the Honey Honey Layer Cake Quilt found at the Moda Bake Shop. It will be for me and I can't wait!

#10 - I'm a little late to the game but I'm going to use this layer cake and the yardage to join in the Layer Cake Sampler over at Material Girl Quilts.

#11 - This Bluebird Park fabric is going to be a Line Dance baby quilt and the pattern can be found at the Moda Bake Shop.

#12 - This cute charm packs are destined to be a Carm Pack Cherry quilt. I saw the free pattern from the fat quarter shop around a lot of my favorite blogs and want to give it a whirl.

#13 - I'm going to turn this cute little candy pack into the Contact Print Pillow found over at Crazy Mom Quilts. It should be a fun pop of color for my couch.

#14 - These will be another Happy Weekender quilt but this one will be for me. I recently made this pattern and then I fell in love with this fabric and just had to have a quilt out of it for me.

#15 - This flannel yardage will be four blankets with matching burp cloths for my friends with upcoming babies.

#16 - These bits of fleece and fur are going to be a stuffed sheep. It's going to be a fun Easter toy for my tiny girl.

#17 - These adorable fat quarters are going to turn into a baby quilt using the Starburst Pattern from Melissa at Happy Quilting.

#18 - I just adore every single thing about this quilt top. I really don't want to mess it up with bad quilting so I have been waiting. I think I just need to bite the bullet and get it done.

#19 - I made this quilt top around 18months ago and even quilted it a little bit but then my machine freaked out and I never picked it up again. Now I have a glorious new machine and I think it's time to tackle this one again.

#20 - The center squares were orphans from my husbands great-grandmother. He wanted me to put them into a quilt but make what I added on pretty plain. So I went with a giant border. It needs to be quilted and bound.

#21 - This one needs a couple of quick repairs and then to be quilted and bound. This is the second quilt I ever made and it has been hiding in the garage ever since. It's huge at around 112" square, which is also why it's not been quilted yet.

#22 - This crochet blanket just really needs to be finished. It's for my baby who is now 8 months old. I've never gone past a birth on one of their blankets but I guess that's what happens when you get to baby number five. I only have about 20 more rows to do  or five colors so it shouldn't take that long.
