Q4 Finish-a-long

So, I've decided to motivate myself to finish up some stuff I've been working on here and there.  I find whenever I write things down I do try to work a little harder so here goes.

1.  My scrappy trip quilt started last week.  This is my winter quilt to be used downstairs.  At this moment I have 3 more blocks to make, then quilt and bind.

2.  Star Surround Quilt

The quilt along is finished and I am currently hand quilting but it's really slow-going.  Hopefully I can try to put in some hours on the weekend. I want to finish this as I'm using it as the Christmas quilt for my daughter.

3.  Christmas Quilt for my bedroom

This was actually started last year and I am definately going to try to get it done for this year.  I need to add the borders, quilt and bind.

4.  Christmas quilt for my son

This I recently started and it's going pretty good so far.  I have to do the dresdens which is what is really holding me back.  Oh, I just remembered I ran out of background fabric.  Need to order some.

5.  Shawl

Doing this to wear in the winter.  This I should definately be able to finish as I can at least do one row per day.

6.  My daughter's swoon quilt

Two blocks are done and two more to go.  Again I need to order more background fabric.

It's a Scrappy Trip

On Sunday I started a Scrappy Trip Quilt.  I've been meaning to make one for myself to use downstairs, and on Sunday there was a big change in the weather and so I decided to start.  Between Sunday and yesterday I did the following (8 blocks), with 12 more to go.

In the evenings I've been trying to hand quilt this beauty.  It's the quilt from my Star Surround Quilt-a-long.  I only get to do about an hour each evening and I want to finish by end of November.

Until next time.
