Q1 Finish Along Goals

It's once again time to reassess the project list. I have already finished three quilts this month and I'm excited to get working on some others. Q1 is full of Project QUILTING challenge plans, and I have some Planned Improv: All About Angles projects in progress, but I'm hoping to also get back to some of my older WIPs in the coming months. This quarter will also see me moving back into my newly renovated sewing room. Most excitingly, I have some awesome new lighting. :-) And in February and March I'll be making some updates to my blog/website.

Here are the four Q4 finishes from my list:

I realized that I miscounted my 2018 finishes last week since i didn't get my class samples onto the blog. I finished 34 quilts last year (including two pillows) and 3 finished bags this year.

    That's quite a list. I think I'm tired just from reading it. LOL I just updated my WIP list. But I need to double check it to make sure I've included everything.

      While I have a hard time knowing exactly what projects I'll focus on finishing in the quarter, I like having all the projects listed in one place. ;-)

  2. Hey Sarah, That's quite the list and I'm glad to see improv abstraction made the cut! On behalf of your fellow 2019 Finish A Long Hosts, best of luck with your goals and thanks for linking up. So much fun to have you on the crew!
