Summer Goals

It is that goal-setting time of year again for the Finish Along at Littlest Thistle! This quarter’s goals feel lofty. Last quarter, I had tops and backs and batting all set to be quilted, so finishing the quilts was No Big Deal.

This quarter, I have stacks of fabric and ideas.

First up, Metro Rings out of Botanics and Pure Elements with some custom quilting. This is the only project with a hard deadline, as it is for a friend getting married in October (or her shower, whenever that is). I’ve wanted to work with Botanics for a while, and B & G will be decorating their home in greens, blues, oranges, and yellows. The facing triangles will be orange and yellow, and I’m going to add a wide grey border similar to this quilt.  Finishing the top is my July Lovely Year of Finishes goal.

Next, I want to finally do something with these leftover blocks from LLamas in Log Cabins. My idea is to make some flying geese to sit between the blocks and then add a couple of borders, medallion-style to make the finished piece larger.

I’ve had this gorgeous Salt Water and coordinating solids stack on the top of the fabric pile for months, and I think it is time to sew them into a Honey quilt from Elizabeth Hartman’s second book, Modern Patchwork.

My last amorphous goal is to do something with this lovely Acacia and solids stack. I’m open to suggestions – maybe hexagons or a kaleidoscope?

This all seems a bit daunting, yes? Better start cutting fabric!

  1. I love your fabric choices and you can’t go wrong with an Elisabeth Hartmann pattern. As for the acacia…..hmmm it definetly seems to be a shame to cut the racoons up, so something that will do them justice?
