Q2 Finish Along Goals

I participated in all six challenges for Project QUILTING in Q1, making 4 mini quilts and two bags. I also made the first of my Island Batik projects, a pair of mug rugs and and a mini quilt. I also finished seven mug rugs from my Q1 list (though they didn't get shared on the blog of linked up). I finished my Wonderlust baby quilt and my minimalism challenge for Curated Quilts. Lastly, I finally put the binding on my Midnight Mystery quilt, giving me one large finish for the quarter. That's 16 quilts in Q1!

Last quarter the list got up to a whopping 45 WIPs. With the addition of a few new projects that number has been knocked to 40 for Q2. They are arranged here by stage of the project. Stay tuned! ;-)

      Thanks, Kathleen! It's a little daunting, but I like to have a good sense of what I have in progress, so I like the quarterly list... even if some have been featured for many quarters. ;-)

    Wow Sarah. You have a massive list here. I'm overwhelmed looking at it but it's so inspiring seeing all you are working on.

      It's all about deciding which are the current priority. ;-) Right now there aren't any projects that I'm willing to purge, so for now they all stay on the list. :-) Thanks for visiting, Lisa.

    There are some great projects in this list. I'm working on re-doing my WIP tonight. I need to make it detailed as to what needs to be done for each project. I also want to attach some timelines -- need to get moving on getting stuff done.

      I need to take a second look at my list and decide what the top priorities are... For now I'm focusing on a couple Island Batik projects and a quilt for the Stash Statement blog hop (featuring green and ORANGE!), due for me in a few weeks. I'm also getting close to packing up my sewing room.

      Thank you, Daisy. I like to be fully aware of all the projects in progress... it reduces uncertainty or something. ;-)

  5. So many great things here Sarah, you can totally finish up a few of them! Thanks for linking up with the Finish-A-Long on behalf of the 2018 global hosts.

  6. Such an organized, if long, list. I am so impressed that in the first quarter you finished more than you added. I wish I was that good! Good luck on continuing the great progress. On behalf of the 2018 global FAL hosts, thank you for participating in the FAL.
