Cross My Fingers - Finish Along Q3 Challenge To-do List!

Okaaayyy, will give this a go - The Littlest Thistle blog (aka Katy) is running a finish-along challenge - great incentive to win any of the awesome prizes and I know I will need the incentive!!

I had already planned to make a conscientious attack on my UFOs and WIPs, so for each one I finish by 30 Sept I'll get one entry into the prize draws.

Here is my "fingers-crossed list"!
  • assemble and complete my 2012-2013 Moda Mystery Designer BOM
  • complete my Jigsaw Blues quilt (quilt and bind)
  • quilt and bind the baby panel (with pram on it) that I bought two years ago
  • finish toy giraffes #11 #12
  • complete my Amelia's Hot Cross Buns quilt (below) (quilt and bind)
  • complete my Riley Blake baby quilt (at right) (border, quilt, bind)
  • complete my Country Jigsaw quilt (extra row of blocks, quilt and bind)
  • create and complete the String of Pearls QAL quilt that I have just bought a set of Robert Kaufman/Anne Kelle Remix Ovals fabrics for - bliss! (Have been wanting to make this one for quite..a...while!) got these colours yesterday at Kitz'n'Thingz, and have ordered the yellow, orange, blue and grey ovals fabrics from FabricFix and The Fat Quarter Shop (the US dollar is high against the NZ$ at the moment so I did add a few other wee goodies to the order as well LOL!)

    1. Thanks Vera! We'll see how it goes - once school starts again (next week) things get pretty full on!

  2. Great list and with the prizes as incentive I'm sure you will be finishing them all :) Nothing like the thought of free fabric to get one sewing the fabric you have together :)

    1. I am certainly going to try! Will be good to deal to the pile in the spare room!

  3. I LOVE incentives as motivation!! You've got a good list. That baby quilt looks super sweet, by the way. You might check out Stitched in Color's Purge-Along - I bet there's a way you can maximize your entries (extra incentives never hurt, right?) Just web search it. :)

    1. Thanks for visiting and thanks for the Purge-Along tip, I will look it up! My colleague is expecting a grand-daughter in August, so is keen to take the baby quilt - I am hoping to quilt it this week (just did a practice sandwich tonight with a stippled flower pattern in preparation for it). Have a good week!

  4. Those are great goals! I love your fabric choices for the quilt along.

    1. Thanks for the feedback - I am looking forward to the final Remix fabrics arriving so I can get on with the QAL!
      Have a good week!
