Q1 - WIPs and To Be Finished!

2014 was a rockin and rollin year, both personally and in the quilting I did.  I finished a LOT - several challenges, and some swaps, baby quilts, and even a family quilt.

However, as we quilters seem to do, I swear I started even more!  So, this year I am joining the 2015 Finish Along at On the Windy Side.

2015 FAL at On the Windy Side

So here is my Q1 list, and a few WIPs tossed in I know I wont have totally finished - but I need a good boost on.

1-  2015 Guild Spring Challenge

This is a test hexie for a quilt guild challenge I am going to do.  My first attempt as english piecing, I think I love it!  The challenge will have to be done around April, so this is a must finish.

2- Sister's Oregon Quilt Show quilt

In 2014 I won a selection of blocks from a block challenge hosted by Sister's Oregon.  I want to make a quilt and enter it in the outdoor show.  It would have to be finished by June, so I better get crackin!

3 - Friend swap in 2014
 I figured we would get off track on this friend swap.  I am still working thru the packets of goodies she has sent me.  However, I would like to have them done and the top done by Q1 so I can say 'yeah!' and focus on 2015.

4 - 2014 Around the World Swap
 This is the results of a swap with people from all over.  I have seen a few of our facebook participants post finished quilts which has me inspired to make this happen and get it quilted.

5- 2014 Quilt Guild Paint Chip Challenge

I really love the design I created for this challenge.  I still need to finish 6 blocks and then get it quilted.  I would love it on my couch this summer.

6- Garden Wallhanging

This is a gift for a friend I want to have done this summer.  I got stuck on quilting the tiny little bits I fused, but I think I have a solution.  This should be finished this quarter.

7- Shop banner wallhanging

This has been around for at least 2 years.  Again, I got stuck not sure how to quilt the edges of the small pieces.  However, I want it done and on the wall and then photographed for my etsy shop.

8 - awake my soul wallhanging

Similar to the above.  Inspired by Mumford and Sons song lyrics, I would love to do a line of wallhangings with song lyrics like this.  Just have to finish and then do more.  I want to add building silhouettes and a few simple things to give depth, then quilt.

9 - Mini Swap

I am waiting for fabric I ordered to do the binding, then this will be off to it's swap partner.  This is a definite finish in Q1.  So fun to make this kind of design!  I might make one for me.

10 - hexi mini

This is kind of a personal challenge to figure out hexis and hand sewing.  I actually kind of love it, and made a ton of 2 inch hexi forms I can use over and over.  Hoping to have the mini on the wall in Q1,but i also plan to hand quilt this baby, so we will see.

11 - Saving the Pillow Top

This is for my cousin.  My grandmother made this for her years ago, and since grandma has passed it is one of a kind.  It has been well worn, and I don't think can be a pillow anymore.  I am thinking I will turn it into a wallhanging, and then make a pillow for her using this pattern.

12 - Commissioned quilt

 I have to get this done.  I have gotten stuck on designing an applique tree in king size.  I just need to get the base on the wall and do it, and stop waffling.  I want at minimum the top done in Q1.

13 - Baby quilts

I have 3 of these tops done in scrappy HSTs.  I just need to back and bind them.  I will donate them when finished.

14- Disappearing Blocks Quilt

This is a quilt intended as a Christmas gift.  however, life got busy and I did not finish.  I would like to finish it this spring to gift or put in my own closet.

15- HST quilt\wallhanging. 

 I challenged myself last fall to work with half square triangles and pink.  I have a lot cut and pieced.  I need to square up and iron and then decide on the top.  I would love for this to be a quilt I gift or sell -and not hang around!

16 - Winter Wonderland art

I painted some snowflake designs on fabric and have been adding thread to them to create unique art with them.  I want to make a wallhanging with them - or maybe a couple of wallhangings.  These were intended to be done for last holiday, but life got in the way, and I got stuck on the sewing portion which is taking a while to make each flake unique.  I love how they are coming out - this may also turn into a teaching aid for a fiber art class.

17 - purely fun pot holders

I made a couple of potholder gifts from a pattern I saw online - little R.V. designed art.  I loved them, my recipient loved them, and now I want a few for me!

Well, quite a list!  I would love to get 75% of this done in Q1.  Here we go, linking to Adrienne!
