With a to-do list as long as my arm, I'm linking up with Leanne's FAL (Finishalong). Perhaps this will be the kick up the butt that I need!
So what would I like to get finished this quarter?
First up are the two quilts for the Care Circle of do.Good Stitches. I promised Rachel that these will be done by the end of January. Before we came home, I bought thread, backing and batting so these should be among the first finishes of 2013.
There's the already pieced X and Plus quilt top...
...and the unpieced Patchwork Wheel quilt top
Another important finish for me and long overdue is the Stained Man with a Curious Nature quilt for my husband. It was the last thing I quilted with my machine before it broke. I hated the quilting and so it was a relief to unpick it all so that I could steal the batting and use it for my mum's quilt, now known as the Turning Corners' quilt (thanks Flo!). I have new batting for it, a recovered machine and no excuses!
Another one languishing sadly in a plastic body bag is the Drunkard in Central Park quilt top. I finished it in December 2011 and loved it. Only it was too small. Then in a serendipitous moment last month, Amy was having a destash of Central Park and I snapped it up! It arrived the day after we left but I shall ask my mum to send it over and somehow use it to make this quilt bigger. It may mean some deconstruction but it will be worth it as I love the colours in this top.
Lastly, it is almost a year since I made my granny squares - I jumped on the bandwagon and made a few and then there may have been a kona white crisis and I stopped making them. So I would like to finish this one too. This is a little ambitious as there are quite a few more blocks needed.
So I'm linking up with Leanne and crossing my fingers. This is very optimistic I know. I have a gagillion bee blocks to figure in as well. Wish me luck! So what are you hoping to finish? If you fancy joining in and haven't yet done so, the linky is open until Sunday January 13 at midnight MST.
