2016 Finish-A-Long - Q3 Goals!

It's that time again... goal setting! After jumping on the 2016  Finish-A-Long just in time for Quarter 2, I found it very motivating. Here's hoping Quarter 3 is no different!

Goal 1 - Technicolor Galaxy
Last quarter, my goal was to get up to date on my Skill Builder BOM Technicolor Galaxy. Check! This time, I want/need to get this puppy assembled and bound. For reals. It's been long enough and I want my design wall back!

Goal 2 - Cotton + Steel Christmas Quilt

This one might seem a little familiar.  Yup, it was a goal last quarter too. But this time I'm really going to get it done. Part of my hang-up is how to quilt it. Suggestions are more than welcome!

Goal 3 - Selvage Challenge
I'm going to turn my pile of rainbow selvage blocks into something fabulous for Stash Builder Box's Selvage Challenge. The challenge runs from July 5th to September 25th (perfect for Q3) and all you have to do to enter is post your project on Instagram (yup... I've succumbed to the temptation) using #selvagechallenge.

Goal 4 - Paper pieced hexies
I made one of these awesome wee hexies during my May is for Makers mania. Must. Make. More. And turn them into something! I should set a goal to use a few of those lovely patterns I bought!

Goal 5 - Advent Calendar
Christmas Advent Calendar Pattern - Wool Felt - Christmas Countdown - Reindeer with 24 Treasured Characters 
Speaking of which! I started buying wool felt for this mega project just last week. Can I get it done for the end of September? It's a big goal, but I'm gonna give it a try!

I'm linking up with the goal setting post for Quarter 3 of the 2016 Finish-A-Long.

2016 FAL



  1. I love all these goals! I can't wait to see your progress on these, especially the Technicolor Galaxy and the advent calendar.

  2. Can't wait to see what you cook up with your selvedges. And that advent calendar is pretty awesome. Good luck!

  3. How about quilting your Christmas quilt with random loops occasionally interspersed with stars or bells or a mixture of simple Christmas shapes. If the shapes were simple, even I could manage that.
    That is a cute advent calendar!

  4. That little hexie is amazing. Good luck with your goals.

  5. You have such amazing projects here! Your Galaxy quilt is a stunner!

  6. What a fun and diverse set of goals for this next quarter! That pp hexie blows my mind! And your galaxy quilt is a real showstopper! Good luck accomplishing your goals! XO

  7. Great line-up of goals! I can't wait to see what you finish!

  8. Lovely projects! Good luck with your goals!
