Finish Along 2016 Quarter 2 roundup and Q3 Goals

The days are flying by and it's time once again to look back at the previous quarter and look ahead toward what I hope to accomplish by the end of the next quarter.   I did get a few things done this time, but there's so much left to do!

Quarter 2:
1. Pillowcase - finished!

2. Doggie quilt - finished!

3. Basket - finished!

4. (2) gift place mats - not yet started.. thinking of moving to Q4 just in time for Christmas
5. Pouches -finished!
6. Playhouses Doll Quilt - not yet started
7. Baby girl quilt gift - started and changed theme
8. Succulents wall hanging - not yet started
9. Picnic quilt - not yet started
10. Easter baskets - not yet started. I think this would fit better in my Q1 2017 list!

Quarter 3 Goals:
1. Laptop sleeve - I've been searching for a simple sleeve for my laptop and my husband suggested I just make one... why didn't I think of that? 
2. Baby girl quilt - This was to be a water or beach themed quilt, but will be from the Halfhearted Pattern. I've made about 20 blocks and have about 20 more cut out. 

3. Zippered pouches - at least 5, but hope to make more. I designed some fabric depicting the city symbols, so this will be fun to experiment with.

4. Shopping totes - I hope to make 2 using the same fabric.
5. Bee quilt - this is a throwback to last year. I think it needs one additional row. I put it aside because it's slightly too small for my current bed and because it's going to be a beast to quilt on my small machine. It is so easy to put off projects that will made for myself!

6. Commission quilt - I need to make a lap-sized quilt in jewel tones to be used as a couch throw.
7. Playhouses doll quilt - Now that she's finally started summer break, my daughter is happily choosing fabrics from my scrap baskets...and spreading them all over the floor. I have no idea where she learned that.
8. Supernova - I only need to make 2 more blocks before I can sew up this top. They take FOREVER but it would be nice to get this one finished for myself as well. Plus, maybe then my partner will be inspired to finish hers too!
9. Picnic Quilt - this bundle is still waiting patiently!
10. Another bee quilt - I'm being ambitious, but this is a pile of blocks just begging to be rescued from the cabinet and sewn together!

There are so many more things I'd like to put on this list, but I will stop here for now! Linking up to

Doggy Basket

Whoops, I was trying to link up this finish to the 2016 Finish Along through IG, but I had no luck, so I'm writing up a quick post to get it in.

This basket was made to go with the Doggie Quilt

I recently made for my nephew. I'm happy to say that they've received their package and were very surprised and happy. My brother had no idea that this was a basket though, and he was trying to figure out how to attach it to their stroller before he wised up and sent me a message. What a nut!

Just the right size to hold a baby quilt!

This is #3 on my Q2 FAL list.
