My Goals For FAL Q3

Well, the 2nd quarter of the 2017 Finish-A-Long came and went and I didn't finish one project on my list. So I'm reposting those projects plus adding one or two. Here are my lofty goals....
Thistle Thicket Studio's 2017 Finish-A-Long 3rd Quarter Goals.

1. Bella Solids Quilt: This project is my top priority this quarter as it has a September deadline. I've bought the fabric and have an idea, so hopefully I'll complete a quilt to enter in Moda's Bella Challenge.

2. Christmas Star Quilt: I have a couple of the first quilts that I made that I quilted very sparsely on my DSM that I'd like to load up on my long arm and re-quilt. This is the first one on the list. I want to custom quilt this with different patterns in the sashing, cornerstones, and star blocks.

3. 2016 Quilt Guild Challenge: Medallion Quilt. This one is still at the same place as it was on August 16, 2016 - the day my mom and aunt had their car accident while on our girls quilty road trip. I really want to get this one done. Even if I don't get it quilted, I'll consider it a success if I get the top completed. I have two more sides of the 3-D pinwheels to finish, then I have rounds of 4-patches, piano keys, flowers and stars to make.

4. & 5. Whole Country Caboodle Kits: I'm throwing in a couple of little projects to break up the big projects that I'll be working on. With little projects you can get a quick gratification of completing something and I think I'll need some of that this quarter! These little kits are mini quilts that button onto a larger "A Door A Doodle" quilt that I have hanging in my entryway. There are different seasonal ones that I've never gotten around to making.

6. 7. & 8. Halloween Mini Quilts: This is another set of little projects that I'm tossing in. These are free paper piecing patterns by Made By Marney and I think they are so cute. I'd like to get these done this quarter so I have them to decorate with this fall.

9. Hello Darling Frivols Kit: I started this one while the hubby and I were snowbirding in Texas in January and February, but I didn't have a lot of sewing time while there. I've worked on this some since we're back on the farm and have half of the blocks complete.
