2nd quarter finish along goals



I love the quarterly finish alongs. First quarter I set my goals higher than I thought possible to achieve and I got them all done.  Lets hope 2nd quarter is equally successful.

One  great thing about 2nd quarter is that I will be out of school during June which allows me so many more hours on the machine.

This finish along requires a complete finish meaning quilted and bound.  Here are my hopes for 2nd quarter:

1.  Middle school student's barns
I started teaching them in November and was so pleased with how the blocks turned out. I am not putting a border on it so it is ready.


2.  Justin's bear paw quilt
I cut it out in the evenings at the hotel during a  teacher training last month. I realized I had enough fabric to make two so I ended up cutting out two.


This is what I will be making.  It is one of my designs.


3. Justin's Mystery Quilt




4. Christmas Log Cabin



5.  Crazy Busy Bees
 I have had the fabrics planned, cut into fat quarter sizes,  and stacked in their selected order for months. (It is a stack and slash style of quilt).


Here is a better photo of the bees.


6. 5 bags
I don't usually make anything but quilts; however,  my friend convinced me to try a bag.  I am making them for my girls for Mother's  Day since this is their first one as new mothers. I hope to make one for myself as well.  The pieces are cut and semi assembled.



7. Chicks in the Garden
I am making two quilts with the same flowers. This is the second one.   Again,  the fabric is cut into fat quarter sizes,  pressed,  layered,  and ready to cut.



8.  Pink Hexagon
I made this top many years ago. It is #5 on my  Patchwork Times UFO challenge list.  It needs to be done this month.

As usual another packed quarter. Amazing work too.

it looks like you have a lot of plans for your second quarter - the project that you say houses all around would be good - I agree - it is an interesting looking quilt though.

I love all that your working on! I've been watching the sliced quilt for a while now and can hardly wait to see it finished:)

I really like the look of the Bear Paw Quilt. Two of them sounds like quite the adventure!
