2016 Finish-A-Long

2016 FAL
This what I need!

As you may have noticed I have not had a post with any goals, words, plans or the like... I have got so many projects lying around that I am genuinely confused.

This was the case until I came across the 2016 FAL event...have not participated before but this sounds like exactly what I need...some direction. Even if I only achieve half of what I put down for myself it will be so worth it. The FAL is an event that has already run for a few years and allows quilters to link up with a list of UFOs at the beginning of the quarter and then at the end of the quarter with a finished item (each finished project is a separate link as I understand it). Each link is also an entry into a random draw for great prizes. The links will be hosted on a number of hosting blogs all over the world at once. If you wish to find out about the schedule, information and the sites involved please visit one of the hosts at  'A Quilter's Table' 

Now for my list:
#1 Baby Blocks quilt - the dreaded Y-seam
This is my current project so this should work fine. I only have one more row to go and then the outside hard can this be. Quilting, binding...we shall see!

#2 Japanese Panel
This must be the third time I am showing this photo. Given my obsession with FMQ, this spoke to me at a recent Quilt Show. I now have Cindy Needham's collection of stencils and thought that I could try a variety of grids on the Panel.

#3 Whole Cloth
This is an older project (year before last?) I did come across the other day...only the binding to be done. Not sure why this ended up in the cupboard. Definitely needs to be completed.

and..another Whole Cloth that will no doubt go into the second quarter but I want to start listing this as I keep putting this off. As a bit of a personal goal I want to at least get this marked on the fabric, ready to be tackled during the second quarter.
There are so many wonder I am feeling overwhelmed.

Linking up to Jess from Eleven Garden Quilts as she is closest to me.
