3rd quarter to-do list

after just posting about non-finishes for the 2nd quarter of the 2013 finish-a-long its time for my list of hopeful finishes for the 3rd quarter!

of course my first UFO on the 3rd quarter list is Lucy's quilt which I am 100% confident of getting done as its already quilted and the binding is sewn on ready for hand sewing - yes, I almost got it finished for the second quarter but missed it by a whisker !

and my poor old Mod Pop will go on my 3rd quarter list as well - I managed to make the quilt top in the 1st quarter and I pieced the back in the 2nd quarter so I'm really hoping I can quilt and bind it in the 3rd quarter - I'd love to see this on my bed while its still winter :)

I'm adding just one more UFO from my previous lists and that is to finish the whirlygig mini wild thing - I managed to get the top done last quarter.  As its only a small quilt I'm going to try some easy (LOL!) machine quilting so I hope to get this finished as well.

and now for a couple of totally new UFOs that I'm hoping to get done this quarter ...

Last year I was in a flickr group - Design Camp 2 - and for my month I requested mod mosaic blocks based on a tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman and I can't wait to see this put together - I only received the final blocks at the end of last year so I'm happy to get these out of the box and onto the design wall !

I have already started trying to work out the placement and how to cut the background - I think I'll do a two sided quilt like Elizabeth as some of the blocks are quite big.

In October 2011 I decided to do a hexagon quilt using Julie from Jaybird Quilts Hexagon Quilt-a-long.  I cut most of the blocks and even blogged about it and that's as far as I got !

I'm using Summer House which I got as a fat quarter bundle through the Fat Quarter Shop Blogger's Choice club way back in September 2011 - the colours are a little different from what I'd pick for a quilt now - no pink - but I've since bought some pink roses from this range for the backing !!

it would be fantastic to get this quilt done in the third quarter so it would only be two years in the making!

well, that's my list for the 3rd quarter - hopefully its do-able !!

  1. All the projects on your list are lovely, I'm really looking forward to seeing them develop!

  2. This a list full of excellent projects. Maybe you and I will both do better this quarter.

  3. How fun to see your 3Q FAL list! You're very optimistic and energetic about accomplishing a lot, aren't you? I've entered this for the first time, and am much more reticent about what I'll be able to finish with four quilts. I see we both have a Hex 'n More ruler-cut quilt at the same stage! How ironic is that? Are your hexies 4" too? Well, we'll be muddling through this one together. I've never sewn so many small hexies, so hopefully that will be do-able. I need them put together for a late August baby gift.
