It is the time of year when the marking is piling up and I am counting the weeks until finals are over – well mostly I am counting the number of assignments until the end of term. As things get busy I need something to keep me accountable for a few projects. For these reasons I decided to join up with the last quarter of the 2013 Finish-A-Long. My list of unfinished projects is really a lot longer than this, but I thought I would try to be reasonable with what I might actually be able to accomplish (along with the blocks for the bees and block swaps that I am currently in).
1. First up is this cute little quilt (the top is actually complete as of yesterday). It is made from some Dr. Seuss scraps and solids for a college at work who is due in December. It needs to be finished before she leaves on maternity leave!
2. Mug Rug sets. I promised a friend I would make some of these for her Aunts for Christmas. She needs six sets of two before Christmas and so far I have 2 basted, 2 more tops pieced, pieces cut out for 4 more and patters/fabrics pulled for the last sets. I also have one quilted that is a Christmas present for my brother.
3. Textured Baby Quilt. I have been working on this little baby quilt for a while. I love the colours and the different textures in the quilt (hence the name). I have no plans for this quilt other than I wanted to try a project with texture magic. I am sure someone will have a little girl soon who needs a quilt.
4. Pods of Seuss. I first posted this baby quilt months ago. Since then it has been quilted and the then it sat for another month or two. I then made the binding and again it has sat for weeks. I really want to get this quilt into the finished pile for no other reason than it has been patiently waiting its turn long enough.
5. Christmas Monkeys. I love Sock monkeys and made this quilt top back in January after getting my hands of some of this adorable fabric. The top is finished and I have the backing pieced, I just need to find time and space to get it basted. I would love to have it finished to snuggle under for the holidays.
6. Last but not least is a bit of an ambitious project, but I thought I would put it on here so hopefully I get some progress done. All these little squares are cut out for an Anchors Away quilt designed by Tula Pink. I know I probably won’t get this quilt finished (it is a queen sized quilt), but it is always good to aim high!
Well that is my goal, in reality I think I will be happy if I just get the presents finished.
