Finish Along: Quarter 2

I think you might all laugh at me.... but here's the plan - some things I have to finish, others that are so close to finished that it would be silly to leave them, and then things that I want to finish but which seem unlikely. So, in no particular order, here we go!

Daniela's Quilt: Fourth time lucky for this quilt. It has already been on my list last year in Q3 and Q4 and in Q1 this year. Q2 2013 is the quarter and this quilt WILL be finished. It is pieced, and basted and ready to quilt - the machine is set up and as soon as this is posted, I'm making a start - 13,000 square inches of quilting! Of course, if it doesn't fit in my machine I may have more of an issue :)

Steph's Quilt: Fourth time lucky for this one too. It's also pieced and basted and ready for quilting, and is second in the pile underneath Daniela's quilt!

Debs's Quilt: This is the quilt I introduced you to yesterday. I don't have the background fabric yet, but the whole thing needs to be finished by 28th June. Non-negotiable. 

Modern She Made Swap: the deadline for this is coming up fast and I need to decide on the layout and how I want to quilt it. But I have decided that it will be a cushion.

Anna's Place mats: Anna and Tom got married in mid March, so I really should get this set of four place mats finished.

Stepping Stones Baby Quilt: this one is pieced, and the backing and batting and binding are all bought. Just need to get it all together. 

Ellie-Jo's Quilt: this is another pieced top with backing and batting purchased, but I haven't bought the binding yet.

Bubbles Baby Quilt: There's still quite a bit of work to do on this one - I need to hem all the circles and applique, before I can even contemplate the quilting.

Strings and Things: Hexies and strings. Blue and pink. I would like to have a finished quilt top by the end of May as part of the Scrap Attack: String Fever. Wouldn't be good to finish it too?

Rhubarb and Custard: I'm so close on this one after so long... still sashing

Three Peaks: Pieced. Batting, backing and binding bought.

Neon Stained: this has been around a while too, but it is now fully basted and ready to quilt - number three in the pile, but I haven't really decided how to quilt it yet.

Hexie Table Runner: I made real progress on this in the last quarter, and it's also ready for quilting. But I'm thinking of hand quilting it, so this may have to roll over to next quarter, but I'm being positive, so here it is.

Rock and Romance: I think it's unlikely that I will finish it, but it's here because of the effect that having Steph's and Daniela's quilt on the list. If I move this quilt along, I will be happy.

Poetica Wedding Ring: I love this quilt. The colours are beautiful and I'm working on it regularly in classes at our Local Quilt Shop. I may well have a finished quilt top by the end of the quarter, it may even be quilted. But I have a feeling the binding will be a challenge.

I've just counted - that's 15 projects. In addition to these, and not eligible for the Finish Along, I also want to stay up to date on all of the BOMs I'm following along with. Wish me luck!
