BAQ Blocks 2 & 3

I just realized that I had not shared pictures of Quilting is My Therapy Build A Quilt (BAQ) Blocks 2 and 3. This is the BOM that Angela Walters is doing from her shop Quilting is My Therapy. So without further ado, here are my Blocks for 2 and 3:

Block #2
Test and BAQ Block



Test Block #3
 

BAQ Block #3
 

I feel like my test block is a bit washed out when it comes to focusing on the pattern. But I do love the one using the Green Goddess fabrics. 

I'm patiently waiting for the next Block to be shipped :)

Are you part of any BOM programs this year?

2017 Recap & 2018 Goals

Now that I've had a bit of time to think about what I want to do for my 2018 goals and took a good look around my sewing space, I've decided to call this year focus on WIPs! Years ago when I joined up for the Library Project, I would always start and finish one quilt before starting another project. This was back in 2014.....years later, I have way too many WIPs.

I feel like I didn't accomplish many finishes in 2017 which makes me a bit sad.

Here are my finishes for 2017:

Nighttime Blossoms

Donated to my hometown Relay for Life event.

Triangle Baby Quilt

 This one went to a good friend's adopted baby.

Snowtracks

 This lovely went to my Goddaughter in Manitoba.

Zen Chic's You & Me

This enormous quilt went to a best friend for her wedding gift. 

And then another finish that I can't post about yet. 

I have been sewing a bit but some times there are other things that need to take priority in life. This year, I would like to finish those WIPs that are hanging around my workspace. 

Here is my goals list for 2018:

  1. Dressed to the Nines Quilt - Quilt top was completed years ago. To finish it needs be basted, quilted and binding put on.
  2. X Marks the Spot Quilt - To finish it needs to be basted, quilted and binding put on.
  3. Twilight in the Garden Quilt - To finish it needs to be basted, quilted and binding put on.
  4. Blueberry Ice Quilt - To finish it needs the outer border, basted, quilted and binding put on.
  5. PEI MQG Mystery QA - Complete clues every month.
  6. Quilting is my Therapy BAQ - Complete test block and block every month.
  7. Tula's Block Sampler - Complete all 100 blocks using scraps.
  8. Modern Sampler Quilt - Quilt along with my sister. Fabrics are cut and ready to be pieced.
  9. Tokyo Subway Quilt - Most 2-1/2" print squares are done (Thanks to the Birthday Bonus Club). 
  10. Maple Leaf Quilt -  To finish it needs be basted, quilted and binding put on.
  11. Whispering Lake Scrappy Quilt - To finish it needs be basted, quilted and binding put on.
  12. Unraveled Quilt - Will be using up scraps from my bins. 
  13. Everlasting Love Quilt - Will be using blue scraps for this one. Background fabric purchased. 
Whew! I know this list seems long but a lot of these are quilt tops that need to be finished. And I figure I will need to make a baby quilt or two through the year. There always seems to be at least one baby that needs a quilt every year :) 
So have you made a 2018 goals list? I'd love to hear about it.
