Finish-a-Long: 2016 Q2 List

I finished three quilts for the first quarter of 2016 (Marina's Garden Quilt, Quick Finish Mini Mini, and my Rising Star Quilt).  I also made progress and completed two quilt tops (Paradiso Layers-of-Charm Quilt--it became a lap quilt instead of just a mini, and my Breast Cancer/Pink Hearts Quilt).  I just need to find space big enough to lay them out and baste them so I can get them quilted already.  I'm participating in two quilt-a-longs (Project 48 Quilt, and Modern HST Sampler).  I've been enjoying the weekly/bi-weekly blocks, but since those are long-term projects, they won't be finished until winter.  I still have plenty of other projects to work on.
So here's my UFO list for the Finish-a-Long (ones in bold are my main focus for the second quarter--but since I tend to be circular in how I finish things, meaning I go around and around, I can't say what will come next):
  • Paradiso Layers-of-Charm lap quilt (need to piece the back, baste, and quilt)
    Paradiso Layers of Charm Mini Quilt Top
  • Batik Pinwheel quilt (decide whether to turn into lap quilt by adding more blocks) 
  • SueBeeStar quilt (have the design, need the fabrics)
  • SueBee Stat Quilt
  • T-Shirt Quilt(s)
  • T-Shirt Quilt(s)
  • Charm Quilt "Sister Quilt" (have the top done, just need to hand-tie or quilt)
  • Charm Quilt "Sister" Quilt
  • Tulip Quilt (do something with tulip blocks from eBay) 
  • Tulip Quilt
  • Homespun Plaid quilt (something with all the homespuns I collected)
  • Homespun and some Batiks
  •  Fall Leaf quilt (just needs layered and quilted; have the backing fabric)
    Leaf Quilt
  • Heart Runner Quilt (finish borders and quilt)

  • Rainbow Batik quilt (not sure what, but I have a nice collection of batiks now)
    More Batiks
  • Books-for-Baby quilt for my local library (have started collecting fabrics) 
    Possible layout for quilt
    Some novelty print for Books-for-Baby Quilt
  • Elementary quilt (not sure what, but I have a layer cake of this fabric line that I really want to create something for me with; finally found some backing fabric for this old line) 
  • Elementary Fabrics
  • Square-in-Square Quilt (do something with S-i-S blocks from eBay)
  • Square-in-Square Quilt Project
  • Mystery Quilt (have the top done from years ago, just need to quilt)
    Mystery Quilt
  • Denim Quilt 
  • Hexies (make into quilt top; more long-term goal because I need to trade more hexies)
  • Hexie Friends Quilt Project
  • Text quilt (something with all the text fabrics I've been collecting) 
    Some of my text fabrics
  • Daysail Quilt (need to come up with a pattern for the charm pack/fabric I have) 
    Daysail Fabrics
  • Yellow Brick Road Quilt Kit (bought it long ago, but never assembled) 
  • Blue/White "All Star" BOM Quilt (blocks down, assemble top and quilt) 
  • Green/White "My Favorite Things" BOM Quilt (top done, quilt) 
  • Teal/Green "Mystery" BOM Quilt (quilt top done) 
  • "Threads from the Heartland" BOM Quilt (some blocks finished) 
  • "Century Quilt" BOM Quilt (some blocks done) 
  • "Sunny Days" BOM Quilt (some blocks done) 
  • Bright Floral BOM Quilt (top finished) 
  • Pink/Green/Tan BOM Quilt (top finished) 
  • Blue/Red/Tan BOM Quilt (top finished) 
  • Breast Cancer/Pink Heart lap quilt
  • Windmill Quilt (pieces purchased off eBay long ago)
  • do something with my stash that is scrappy (maybe cut them into pre-cuts--not a FAL goal, but I'm leaving it here for me)
  •  and do something with all the charm packs/mini charm packs I've acquired the past two years (ones I bought and ones given to me as swap extras; probably a half dozen projects in there) 
    Some of my charm packs


Quite a list, I know.  And that's only a small part of the projects swirling around in my head or that I have in my UFO pile.

Wow, this is quite a list. Have fun circling around all these projects I'm sure you'll finish some of them.
