I'm not going to get all 3 finished during the first quarter of the challenge, but I'm pretty sure if I stick with it I can finish two. The farthest along by far is Bejeweled.

The final border needs to be sewn on and this project will be a finished flimsy. It will still need the backing made and to be prepped for quilting so it can be sent out for quilting. This one will definitely be a finish by the end of March.
I've got a start on the third graduation quilt, Geometry.

But I need the design wall free so I can make sure my focus fabric ends up facing the the right direction on all the finished blocks. This quilt will be all large HSTs, so assembly should go pretty fast once I get the blocks made. This one should also be doable by the end of March.
I've not even started on the 4th graduation quilt yet. The design is done, but the fabric hasn't been pulled. I'll save that project for the second quarter of the challenge. There is one quilt that just needs to be bound, Poinsettias.

The quilt still needs to be trimmed and the binding made. But I think this one can be worked in sometime between now and the end of March. That would give me three finishes for the 1st quarter. Which is much better than I typically do this early in the year.
