One Goal, Two Goals, Red Goals, Blue Goals

I'm having a hard time staying motivated to quilt my Scrap{Bee} 2.0 quilt. It's big and it's cumbersome. The quilting is supposed to be wonky to work with the wonky blocks, but I find it sometimes just looks bad. This quilt is apparently going to test me all the way to completion. So I'm making it my April goal for A Year of Lovely Finishes to finish this one.

I was hoping to finish it for TGIFF! this week, since I'm hosting, but it's not looking close enough, is it?

I'm also going to do my Q2 Finish-A-Long goals in this post too.

Q2 Goals for FAL 2014:

1) Scrap{Bee} 2.0: As mentioned above.

2) Carsick: I think I'll need a smaller project before I tackle this one, but I'm putting it down to finish this quarter too.

3) Blue Improv: I really enjoyed the process of making Purplelicious so now I'd like to see if I can do one with blues, starting with this block.

 Or this one.

4) Re-finish Fibonacci Is Not Random: The binding was damaged several years ago so it needs to be replaced. And if I'm going to take off the binding, then I might as well add the quilting I had always wanted to do, but couldn't at the time.

5) Finish the two patterns I have in the works. Before I start any others. :) It's hard to write good patterns when you are terrible at following them. LOL!

What are you hoping to finish next? These lovely parties have some great prizes. Just sayin' :)

Finish Along 2014


  1. Your scrap bee quilt is really great! Keep going!

  2. I love the name "Carsick". You have an interesting opportunity to revisit an older quilt......maybe it was meant to be. I'm working on my FAL list, now. You're will be fun, to watch.

  3. I think your quilt looks great! Keep going! And, still laughing about the Dr. Seuss allusion!!!

  4. Head over heels for that first quilt!!

  5. I agree with Carla....love that one!

  6. What a fabulous list of goals. I love coming by and seeing all of your gorgeous WIPs...

  7. My goodness such lovely projects! I wish you well on the finishing of them! But I have to say I am crazy about the first one, even if its' giving you pains, its still AMAZING!

  8. I am loving your scrap bee quilt, YOU have to finish that one!

  9. these projects are awesome! I am all about QAYG theses days, if I can't take it apart to quilt in smaller bites, t probably won't happen. But I know you can do it! Great goals for the month.

  10. Love all your quilt projects. I like the quilting on that first quilting. When it's all finished and bound, it will probably grow on you! Keep going on it.

  11. That gorgeous Scrap{Bee} 2.0 quilt isn't just big and cumbersome. It's HUGE!!! You should get two finishes worth for that one! Looking forward to seeing your progress on each of these... and all the other stuff you just know you will end up starting, too!

  12. I'm yet to write my list but I love the scrap bee quilt so go go go :-)

  13. I think you are far too hard on Carsick. I really like that one. It would be interesting to reverse pixilate it and see what kind of water colour painting hides inside it!

  14. I am extremely excited by your srap bee quilt. It's simply gorgeous. I think you just need to let go and just go for it with the quilting. And I agree that you're too hard on Carsick. I think it's fab. Actually, everything on your list is fab!
