Finish-a-long first quarter list

I'm going to join in with the 2013 Finish-A-long being hosted this year by Leanne at She Can Quilt. I know that I need a deadline to really get me motoring on a project so this should really help me along.

Project 1 - Swoon Quilt
First up has to be the Swoon quilt started last year as part of the swoon-a-long, I want this finished soooo badly. I have 3 blocks done so 6 to go to complete the top, then the quilting and binding. This will be my biggest quilt to date so will be a a fairly big task to me.


Project 2 - Swoon Cushion
Again with the swoon but this time the floor cushion I planned for my trial swoon block, it'll need quilted and made into a cushion cover so this should be a nice quick one.

Project 3 - Paper pieced fox cushion
This project didn't even make it onto the blog at all but was started last year. I'm not sure how many cushions we really need  but it'll be very cute.


Project 4 - Scrappy trip-a-long quilt top
OK I'm now pushing it totally but I'd like to get my Scrappy Trip Along quilt top finished. At the moment I have 3 blocks done and I'd like it to be twin sized so that's another 27 blocks - ha ha I'm laughing now, I'll be amazed if I get this done this quarter even though they are nice quick blocks.


Project 5- improv cushion for eldest child
This is the last one and probably should be top of the list one because he would like it finished asap and because it's the smallest and easiest - excuse the instagram photo.

Making a start on 1st project for the new year - a cushion requested by my eldest.

So there we go a list which is longer than I was intending but it'll give me something to work towards and also a starting point for doing some wip Wednesday posts too.

I suppose I'd better go and pay the family some attention ;) happy sewing folks.

Bye for now
