Q3 Finish-A-Long Goals

It 's time to make the goals for the third quarter. I hope to finish a queen-sized quilt, a twin sized quilt and a table runner this quarter.

First, the queen-sized quilt. I am planning to finally complete the American Beauty BOM. I have all twelve blocks made. I only need to make the sashing, sew setting triangles on the block and sew the sashing and blocks together and put the borders on. Then there is the shipping it off to the longarm quilter to quilt it for me. And, of course, the binding.

The twin-sized quilt is the other quilt for our guest room. I'm sort of calling it Split Rail Lattice, but I don't know how accurate that is. I need to cut the strips into 6 1/2" blocks, sew those to the Fairy Frost blocks, get it quilted and bound. 

The last planned finish is a table runner I made using blocks from the 120 Blocks Project (remember that?). It needs to be quilted and bound. I think it may be my first attempt at free motion quilting.  Here is a reminder of how it looks:

I think those three goals are doable. I guess we will find out.
