At last…I have beaten the boys to the computer so that I can finally post about my projects that I want to add to the Finish A Long being hosted by Leanne over at She Can Quilt. The FAL is to provide motivation to finish any Un-Finished Objects!
The first two are rollovers from Q1.
The first one is my Echo Quilt. This was nearly a finish in Q1. It is about 75% quilted so it should be an early finish. I am pretty optimistic that it will be finish in this quarter.
Second on the list is my Union Jack quilt. Some concentrated sewing is required to get this quilt together and then to start the quilting. I like quilting, but I find it intimidating too. I guess my skills in the quilting department let me down and I always feel disappointed with what I have done. This quilt will stretch me when I actually get to this stage.
I am also going to add a couple of new projects. The 'biggie' is to complete a weekender bag. It is all cut out and some QAYG has started. I have been building up to this project since last December. I have been choosing fabric, ordering piping and practicing skills that I will need by doing some smaller projects along the way (perfect tote and triple zippy purse). I have been catapulted out into the open to share this with you as it has also been picked as our first project for the next meeting of the East Midlands Modern Quilt Guild.

This has to be a finish as I would like to use it in May as we are going away to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! So this may be the first project that I will complete.
Finally, I am going to add my hipBee quilt. I would dearly like to finish this one before the Fat Quarterly Retreat but I may be being a little unrealistic here! I will do my best to get it together, at the very least, as I would like to show it to my bee mates. The blocks have finally all arrived so now I need to make a lot of flying geese to get this one done!

I think that this list is a little unrealistic, but I will give it my best to get at least some of these finishes done. I am going to link this post up with the FAL over at Leanne's.
