Q2 Finish-a-long Goals

Yes, I know that I didn't participate in the First Quarter Finish-a-long hosted by Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap. I knew there was no way that I was going to finish anything.

This quarter I know that there are two queen-sized quilts that must be finished by mid-May. I have no choice. I sort of felt like that might be cheating (especially since one of them will be finished by the end of next week!), but Rhonda assured me that was not the case, so here goes.

The first quilt has been fondly nicknamed "The Never Ending Hand Quilting Project" and has been over four years in the making. (There will be a detailed post later this week about why you should never take four years to finish a quilt, trust me.) The real name for this quilt is "Janni's Woven Stars" and part of it looks like this:

The second quilt is a paper pieced quilt for my niece's wedding. It is from a pattern called "Woven Double Wedding Ring" that I purchased at Paper Panache. I have all the pieces printed but only a few done. Here is one:

The third thing I plan to finish this quarter is the quilt studio rearrangement and organization. I had to put it on hold to be working on these finishes. I'm not sure that the organization counts toward the Finish-a-long, but I wanted to put it in this post so that I would make myself finish it as soon as these quilts are done! No pictures of that yet!
