2015 Finish-Along


I’ve hemmed and hawed about whether or not I was going to join this year’s Finish-Along. I find that I list projects A, B & C, but then end up finishing projects X, Y & Z or start and finish something brand new. So, with this in mind, I’ve gone through my list of UFOs and have picked three that I think are realistic finishes (i.e. have deadlines separate from this year’s Finish-Along) and then put together a list of dream projects from my UFO list.

Here are the realistic projects for 1st Quarter (January – March).



  • Scrappy Trips – I want this done by mid-February
  • Jared Takes a Wife – also done by mid-February
  • Thangles BOM – I was looking for a quick 3rd project that could be finished and was started prior to 2007

Now for the Dream Projects:  Most of these are on the list because they were started prior to 2007 (my focus this year), the others have some other reason I would like to at least move them forward and if I’m lucky get them finished this year.



  • Christmas BOM – 2003 – My oldest UFO. I ordered border fabric earlier this week and already have the backing. As soon as I figure out how to quilt this it will go to the head of the line once the top is completed.
  • Sew Scrappy – 2013 – I’m not fond of my fabric choices, but know who I want to give it to. Getting it done will be a win for both of us.
  • Sisters Swap – 2005 – Once I decide on the layout (and if it’s one quilt or two), quilting it shouldn’t be a problem. A panto with lots of texture.
  • Orca Bay – 2011 – Although a newer start, I’m excited to get this done since I know where it’s going.
  • Alphabet BOM – 2013 –  a newer start, but I don’t want to see it become a UFO. I’ve got a rough idea of what my layout is going to be but need the last three blocks
  • Scrappy Hearts – 2006 – Currently the top is hanging on my wall. I have the backing fabric so perhaps this will be my “easy” 3rd project for 2nd quarter.
  • Star-a-Day – 2014 –  My newest project. I’m behind by 2 months, but plan on the top being done by the end of August. Will I get it quilted in 2015?  Ask me after I get the top done.
  • Quilted Sweatshirt – 2006 – As cold as it is, I should get it in gear and get it done!
  • Christmas Crazy 8s – 2006 – I want to modify a panto then I’ll quilt it.
  • Hancock STAR BOM – 2004 – my next oldest project. I want this year to be the year it’s done — but don’t see it happening before March.
  • Diamond Links – 2007 – Just missed the cut off, but since it’s partially quilted it would be nice to finish it.
  • Whitework – 2005 – started this in a class. I don’t think there’s much left to quilt on it, so I just need to get it done and make it into a pillow or something.
  • Stack-n-Whack – 2006 – I have no idea how I’m going to quilt it or what I’m going to use for backing, but it’s here because I want to clear the older quilts
  • Candy Sunflower Seeds – 2011 – this is on the list to have an easy finish as I know how I’m going to quilt it once the top is completed
  • Green & Cream Swap – 2006 – another quilt I want to finish so I can say I have started from prior to 2007. Will probably work on this one this summer.

What are you planning on finishing in the next few months?  See what other are by following the links over at On the Windy Side.
