2016 Finish Along Quarter 1

Ok so I totally forgot about the Finish Along until I  the reminder post on IG....

If you haven't heard about it there is a link in my sidebar...and above.....
a fun way to get motivated to finish your WIPs or UFOs in my case......eek!

As some of you might know I made the big plunge after saving for years and have ordered a long arm quilter. So one of my major goals this year is to get the 25 quilt tops sitting in my bedroom quilted and into use!!! But for this quarter my list will be more geared to getting my BOM samples done, along with the Bag of the Month projects done, so when my long arm arrives I can spend a lot of time playing and learning how she works!!!
Oops, should have read the complete rules....a completed quilt project is to actually be quilted and I'm out on that until my long arm arrives.....

My List

  1. Finish my samples and tutorials for BOM (Feb, March, April)
  2. Complete the Bags for Jan, Feb and March
  3. Complete 3 bags from previous years not done
  4. Finish all my Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks (all in Reds and White)(I'm still going to get my blocks done, so this can be on the next quarter's list!!)
  5. Adding 2 quilts, just incase the long arm arrives and I can figure out what I'm doing, lol!! Thinking positive!
Not a long list but that is 8 projects to complete totalling a lot of work......hope I can stay focused!!


  1. Wow! A long arm joining you!? That is exciting! I don't own one, but am sure you will love yours. And all those WIP, UFOs? What fantastic practice you will get finishing them on your long arm!

  2. It's great that you have ordered a long arm machine! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts.

  3. Impressive projects. What fun to have long arm - hope you will be able to finish most of your quilts!

  4. A great list of 'to do's -good luck! You will love having a longarm, might be a bit of a learning curve, but just do a lot of practicing and you will be fine! I have a Nolting, what are you getting?


Thanks for stopping by!! I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, idea, or question!!
