2016 Finish-A-Long Q2 - The More Real Dream List

April 8 - 16, 2016:           Q2 proposed finishes linky is open
June 30 - July 7, 2016:    Q2 finishes linky is open 
July 1 - 6, 2016:               Tutorial week

Okay,  this will be my second list and I am getting more real this time!  My first 2016 FAL list was way too long.  I made progress on several items, but only finished one of them.  That Q1 Dream list ended up almost being a master list of things I want to finish.

This time I'm picking three older projects to finish completely!

1. My to be sent to friend in Colorado Tumbler Quilt - needs to decide about how to put the binding on. Will I add another row at the ends before actually binding? I don't know now.... This started the year just being basted, but the quilting was completed. Thanks to help from Candace at Saltwater Quilts and Cher at Marathon Quilter, the project is closer to being done!
Tumbler Quilt

2.  My Cultural Fusion > Bound for My Friend in Sweden Windmill Quilt.
Just needs binding to be done!

3.  My Husband Quilt - I need to finish putting the pieces together, to baste, quilt and bind it.  It's been a while since I have worked on it.
This is what it looks like now...

Here is the vision from 2013....

When the quilts are all bound with labels then they are done!

Hopefully before another quarter passes by in 2016!

These were also listed on my One Month Goal for 2016.  So far I have met the monthly goals, but the quilts are not finished enough for the FAL 2016 yet!

Jan 2016 Goal to quilt - Finish
Feb 2016 Goal to piece - Finish
Mar 2016 Goal to quilt - Finish
Apr 2016 Goal to piece

It's fun to have these different challenges to get me going on finishing projects up!


  1. These look like more realistic goals. I wish you the best in completing them.

  2. Good luck with your projects and thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts!

  3. Good luck with your finishes June.
