Q4 FAL Goal Post

I completely forgot to link up my finishes for last quarter! Can you believe it?! I had NINE! I felt like a rockstar and then dropped the ball. I hope this time goes better. I have a list of eighteen fabulous projects. I always put a list on my sidebar and link to it as I finish them so you can follow along with me. I'm linking up with Q4FAL over at The Littlest Thistle.

#1 Ruby Crochet Blanket - Since she had her first birthday this Summer and I usually have these done before their birth I've feeling a little guilt about this one and need to get it off my list. I think I only have 18 rows which would be six color changes left.

#2 Mint To Be Swoon - The fabric is Mint To Be and I think it would be wonderful as a swoon quilt. I made a swoon block for another project this year and loved it.

#3 Zigzag Baby Quilt - This one should be pretty fast and simple. I think it will end up being for my shop. Just a zigzag pattern with a print and white rectangle.

#4 Route 15 Quilt - This one has been pushed off for way too long. It will be one for me with the Happy Weekender tutorial I fell in love with.

#5 Route 15 Pillow - Made to match the above quilt. Should be quick, easy, and fun!

#6 Supernova Friendship Swap - The last blocks are being shipped this week. I adore this one and can't wait to play with layouts.

#7 Instagram Mini Swap - I joined in with the igminiswap and am so excited about this one! It's due the beginning of December so finishing it this quarter is a must. I picked the Cut Glass pattern from Vintage Quilt Revival and some Kona solids.

#8 April Showers Quilt - This one is so much more fun than I thought it would be! I love these fabrics more and more each time I play with them. I just have to sew these together in a grid then baste, quilt, and bind.

#9 Orange Fancy Fox Quilt - My youngest son adores all things orange and foxes. This quilt is going to be epic for me. I have all the pieces cut I just need to get it put together.

#10 Pink Seed Stitch Cowl - This is my second ever knitting project and I don't want it to be forgotten. It's a bit trickier than my first project but I'm still loving it.

#11 Dottie Mini - This was a total impulse buy at my LQS. I usually don't do that. It should be fun though. I think I'll try the pinwheel one in the middle.

#12 Halloween Dwell Mini - I joined in the Black Cat Crossing blog hop and picked up these fabrics to make a Dwell Mini. I have a few changes to the pattern by Camille Roskelley to make it fit my needs and I hope it turns out as fun as it is in my head.

#13 Sparklettes Quilt - Using Far Far Away II and Cotton + Steel Basics I'm going to make the first quilt in the Fat Quarter Style book. My middle daughter is over the moon excited about this one.

#14 Hazel Hedgehog Quilt - My eldest daughter is in love with all kids of animals and wanted an animal quilt. I'm in love with C+S Basics so the two combined should be pretty epic.

#15 Primrose Quilt - Ruby is about ready to trade to a twin bed. I was poking through the Fat Quarter Style book with her sitting next to me and she freaked out with excitement when she saw this quilt. She was bouncing around and pointing like crazy then patting and hugging the book. Ruby is currently 15 months old so this is pretty adorable sharing her opinion. I thought it was a one time thing but every time she's seen this quilt for weeks now she gets really excited about it. She even knows how to find it in the book now and won't stop for any other quilt. I decided to use the Miss Kate fabric from Bonnie and Camille because it will coordinate well with her baby quilt made from Ruby by Bonnie and Camille.

#16 Aviatrix Quilt - I'm sure this is biting off more that I can chew (especially considering the rest of the list) but I just can't help myself. This is going to be for me and AMAZING!!

#17 Vintage Quilt - Using Lotus Pond fabric I'm going to make the Vintage quilt from Camille Roskelley's book Simply Retro. I may or may not let my small people touch this one. We'll see how it goes. ;)

#18 Make Up Bag - When my mom was visiting this Summer I made her a bag with this fabric. I'm going to make her a matching makeup bag too and line it with vinyl fused onto the green print.
Once again a crazy long list. I'm excited about so many of the things on it now and can't wait to get working! It will be fun to see what I get finished and what I end up working on not on the list - there's always something. I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday.
