Looking Back.. and Looking Forward


Reviewing the 3rd quarter of the year...
what's on the list and what's off the list.


I didn't get much of anything finished the last few months but
even though I didn't pay much attention to my "list"...
I started a few new quilts that weren't on my list and
managed a couple of check marks to take those off my list.
Like Whit.
Of course I managed to get the first project from the new year of 
Another Year of Schnibbles and a Bit More done.

And then there was this surprise...



Merlot was a project that I made at the beginning of the year but I 
wasn't able to share anything about it until it was published.
And here it is... in the new Quiltmania magazine!
(that's my quilt... I still don't have a photo of my own of it... 
I hear it might be displayed at Market)

I also made Suburbs earlier in the year... but
I made a second one last month in Christmas fabrics.


When it's quilted I am thinking about adding some sparkles in the night sky.

I also did this quilt below... 

and I'm in the process of hand stitching to binding now. 
Pattern tutorial from Missouri Star.

Now, 
as for things started and set aside...




Well, there is this one and that will be on my "list" for finishing this year.



And then there is Sail Away that got swept aside... that's on my list to finish this year.




also, this sweet little thing got abandoned. It's my 3rd project to finish this year.

So, that's my 1, 2, and 3 to finish up.
But...
I have a couple quilts to start.
Harvey being first because that is for our AYOS group... 
and the parade of Harvey
is a couple weeks away. 

And, well, heck, I don't think I can resist
 making this Fig Tree Spools quilt any longer.
Make this #2. 

I think this list seems reasonable, don't you?

I do love that spools quilt. It's also on my list. I'd just be happy if I can get a couple of quilts to the finish line. I don't want to make a list since it would be sooo loooooong.

That's an impressive list Little Lady!!! And Congrats on Merlot -- very pretty!

All great projects Sinta. Looking forward to catching up on your blog and seeing more!

Sinta! How can you manage all of those WIP? It's a lot! Well, don't panic and keep going on your favorites first. When I'm not really excited with some project anymore it really takes more and more to get it done. Congratulations on Merlot, it's really beautiful!

Your list sounds great love all the quilts on it! And yes, this spool quilt is great especially the Halloween version (it's on my list, too).

Reasonable to me! I have so many wips, that I fear I may never finish! I am so loving my new sewing room! Yesterday I finished an old Thimbleberries pattern for a Halloween pillow.
Hey, I had lunch with my Mom and Aunt the other day. I asked them if they would like to come to Bass Lake with me next October so I can attend your retreat. They both jumped on it. That way, they can do things together while I sew!!! So be sure to put me on your list when it is time send out the info!!
