Third Quarter FAL Goals

Once again I have quite the list for my finish along goals. I tried to narrow the list down to ones that I am more interested in and that I actually have a desire to work on. That took it down to 18. Here we go...

#1 Social Club Quilt - They are destined to be a quilt for my niece who is getting married on August 2nd. I'm using the layer cake to HST method I found at Material Girl Quilts and doing a block from her Layer Cake Sampler. This is also my July ALYoF project.

#2 Christmas Pillow - I'm going to turn this cute little candy pack into the Contact Print Pillow found over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Our guild is having a Christmas in July meeting so I want to get this one done quickly in time for that.

#3 Chirp Chirp Quilt - I used the Line Dance pattern again. This is the last one I've got planned with that pattern. It's so fun and makes a good size quilt with only one charm pack. It just needs to be quilted and bound.

#4 - MQG Challenge Quilt - I need to get on this one and I think I've finally decided how to quilt it. I can't wait to get going! It's due on the 25th of July.

#5 Mixed Bag Charm Pack Cherry - This was a fun pattern and so fast and interesting. I also used brushed cotton for the first time and love the feel of it. I need to quilt and bind this one.

#6 Octopus - I had this idea a while ago of making a cute stuffed toy octopus with buttons on the tentacles for fun texture. I'm finally making that happen for my baby's first birthday later this month. I found a cute pattern here.

#7 BYU Quilt - I went to college at Brigham Young University and just adored it. I've wanted to make a BYU quilt for quite some time but I just didn't know how to do it. Then I saw this and fell in love and will now make my own - just a little bigger. It was so fun to collect all the navy prints. Navy is one of my favorite colors.

#8 - Kate Spain Quilt - I was part of a Kate Spain charm swap earlier this year and I think I finally landed on what to do with them. I supplemented with some charm packs from lines that weren't as represented and I'm going to follow this tutorial.

#9 Mint To Be Swoon - Honestly I don't know if I'll even attempt this one but I'd really love to so I'm putting it on the list anyway and we'll see what happens. It's going to be a full size swoon quilt with these cute fabrics from the Mint To Be line.

#10 April Showers Quilt - I'm going to turn this lovely bit of fabric into a quilt for me using this Four Squared Quilt tutorial.

#11 Zigzag Quilt - This is going to be a pretty basic zigzag quilt for my Etsy shop. I have the squares made I just need to throw it together and finish it off.

#12 Road 15 Quilt - 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.

#13 Road 15 Pillow - I may have a bit of an obsession with the Contact Print Pillow. It's just so cool looking, easy, and cheap that I can't help myself. This will be my third go.

#14  Serenade Quilt - This is going to turn into the Twists and Turns quilt. 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.

#15 Scrumptious Quilt -  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.

#16 Simply Style Quilt - I missed the QAL but I'm going to use this layer cake and the yardage to join in the Layer Cake Sampler over at Material Girl Quilts.

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

#18 Nancy Drew Quilt - This one has been tragically forgotten for quite some time now. I made it as a practice FMQing quilt and did 11 of 36 squares and then my machine broke. I need to pick it back up and finish it most because I could use the practice.

So there you have it. I've been finishing about half of these crazy lists I've been posting so that's pretty good! I've been averaging 10 finishes per quarter so I'm interested to see how this goes. I'm linking up to the Q3FAL goal post and WiP Wednesday.


  1. Wow! That is quite a list! Looking good.

  2. Julie,

    Great line-up of projects. Can't wait to see your future posts.

    And can little Miya be any cuter?!

    Shine on!

  3. Wow! So much fabric goodness! Looking forward to seeing the finishes. I have just started one with the line dance pattern. I really like it. It's going together very quickly.

  4. What a list of projects! Good luck! Love all the fabric piles. So pretty. :)

  5. So many projects! I'm impressed. Your Swoon fabrics remind me of my Swoon fabrics but mine are only blue and orange!

  7. Awesome list! So much really nice fabric in there! :-)

  8. What a list! I love the mint fabric in the Mint To Be line, that's great!
    Are you going to wait and add Horizon to the Kate Spain quilt? I love the pattern you chose, looking forward to seeing that when you've finished it!

  9. Seriously impressive list! Don't even know where to start with all that I can't wait to see. But good luck!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
