4th Quarter FAL List

I can’t believe it is the 4th Quarter already.  Here are my goals.

Finish the Tabletopper or make another one???

Table-topper Challenge for Island Batik: Add Borders, Quilting, Binding
This project is close to being done. There is a companion block; a few more decisions need to be made – placemats, door hanging, both??? Time will tell but not too much time…October and the season require a finish!

Tools of the Trade Challenge for Island Batik: Everything
I don’t know if this will be the fabric I use, but it might. I have an idea which tool, but haven’t decided. So this picture is a placeholder for this project.

3D Challenge for Island Batik : Everything
I haven’t decided anything about this one. I am doing a 3D/optical illusion Electric Quilt 8* design course, so I am sure something will come to mind. I also have in mind a fireplace hanging – to update the living room for the holiday.

Cotton & Steel Baby Quilt: Piece, quilt & bind
I am afraid this baby quilt keeps getting pushed off to the side. Will it win this quarter and get done, only the quilting muses know!

Holiday Gifts To You: Everything
Partners in Design will have a Gift Hop from November 11-25. I promised to design a gift for you to make for yourself or someone else! Well, I have a few ideas for this hop, but am not yet decided. The picture will suffice for now. I don’t have a firm idea, but keep mulling things over in my head.

Catalog Quilt: Put the top together, Quilt, Bind, Mail
I was hoping that all the blocks for my first quilt for the Island Batik catalog would be finished by today – they almost are – but a power outage of 2 days put me behind. 32 seams and the 16 blocks for the center will be done then 4 corner blocks to be made. I won’t be able to show a picture at the end of the quarter but maybe a rolled up binding/quilt will suffice to prove it is finished!

Good luck to all participating in the FAL!
