2017 Q2 Goals

Here we go again.  I was four for four with my Q1 goals, and I’m hoping I can keep that trend going for this quarter!

Brendan’s Grad Quilt
My nephew graduates in June and ThePinkOne and I are heading to his party in TX.  I hope I’ve got a finished quilt to take along!  I’m about 1/3 finished piecing the strips.  In the pic the strips are hanging at 1/4 turn because my design wall isn’t long enough!  The pattern is New Wave by Elizabeth Hartman. He’s an avid fisherman and I hope he’ll really like this quilt!

B&W Log Cabin
I started this top a couple of years ago.  It just needs 2 borders and to be quilted, but it’s a big one and it’s going to be expensive to have long armed, so I’ve been procrastinating on it.  But I think I want it on my bed, so I’m going to suck it up and get it quilted and just be done with it (fingers crossed!).
B&W Log Cabin, Winner Winner Chicken Dinner Layout!

Cheery Christmas Star
This one is likely going to be donated to the hospital auxiliary that my mom volunteers with.  Big ole HSTs for the win and a quick quilt top!


Positive Directions
Fishing this one is a bit of a stretch, as I think I only have these 9 blocks done, and it’s not meant to be a mini!  I’m going to give it everything I’ve got at my next sewing weekend away though!

This quarter it’ll be a stretch for me to get these banged off my list but I’ll sure make a go of it!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
