Sewing Plans for the Third Quarter of 2014

I can't believe it is already time to compile a list of all my unfinished projects for the third quarter of the year!  Where has the time gone?
Katy is hosting a Link-Up with prizes to help motivate us to finally get any of our long-term projects completed.  Feel free to join in: visit her blog here for all the details.

My Finish-Along goals for Q3

1.  My sister's quilt. Argh!  I really had hoped to get this done much earlier in the year, but I keep procrastinating and putting it off.  I really did want it finished in time for her to snuggle under it during the Australian winter, so hopefully it will get there at least before the daffodils open!

2.  I recently bought a fat quarter bundle from Anna Maria Horner's new fabric line Pretty Potent, and have deliberated long and hard over what to do with it.  I've finally decided on a pattern, and once some coordinating solids get decided upon, I am going to start cutting into these lovely fabrics!

3.  I have finished all nine of the Swoon blocks, and have sashed them together.  This quarter I aim to finish the quilting and binding and have it complete!

4.  I have had these Harris Tweed remnants for well over a year now, but have finally purchased cushions to go inside them so I have no more excuses to leave them undone.

5.  Will this finally be the quarter when I finish my needle-turn applique quilt????  Oh I do hope so!

6.  Earlier in the year I bought some gorgeous organic voile from The Village Haberdashery, it is Flight by Birch fabrics.  I have wondered what to make from it for quite a while, and have finally decided on a dress pattern.  I do hope to finish this in time for a holiday in August.

7. There is a wedding coming up in my husband's family, and the young couple are marrying overseas and so have requested that no presents be given.  So I thought a nice quilt made just for them would be really nice.  I have the pattern and colour idea, just need to purchase fabric.  My plan is to make the quilt on the cover of this magazine:

So, that is my list of proposed finishes for the third quarter of 2014.  I'll be linking up with the Finish-Along over at The Littlest Thistle.
