But here it is the second week of the second quarter and there are no finishes from my list. 😢 It's not that nothing happened, all the projects have been moved along, just not to the finish line. So looking at what's on the list and what's doable this quarter based on what I know is scheduled at work and home, here's the list for this quarter.
1. Geek Chic (Chain Reaction), from the first quarter list.
This quilt is partially bound and will definitely be finished before the end of April. So unlike last quarter, there will be at least one finish this quarter.
2. Magnolia Mystery, from the first quarter list

The backing is made, the quilt just needs to be prepped for quilting, packed up and sent out for quilting. I need a weekend for that and March was very shy on free weekends for quilting. Hopefully April will be better on that front. This one should get done this quarter.
3. EnProvence (French Cherry Blossums), from the first quarter list
|En Provence, A Bonnie Hunter Mystery (2016)|
This is my April UFO. It was on last quarter's list as all that was needed was the backing and I had hoped to fit that in somewhere. Didn't happen. But now the backing is made and plans are to prep it for quilting this weekend, package it up and send it out for quilting next week. This one should also get finished this quarter.
4. Vintage Dresses, from the first quarter list

This project was my March UFO. Due to business travel, spring break and several nights where I had homework, this just didn't make it to finished top. The plan was to give this as a graduation quilt. Not sure I can finish it by May, but hopefully I can finish it off this quarter.
5. Christmas Angels

This is the last picture of it's status, but I'm pretty sure all the blocks are made, the quilt just needs to be set together, backing made and then sent out for quilting. Hopefully all that happens in time for me to get it bound before the quarter ends.
6. Red, White and Blue Stars
This is my oldest UFO, from 2005. I still need to make a few more star blocks, plus the alternating blocks. I doubt this one gets done, but I'll add it on as my stretch goal for the quarter.
There are some easy finishes on my list and some I'll be really challenged to get finished this quarter. But even if I don't get things finished progress will be made and that counts for a lot.
Good luck with your finishing plans for second quarter. I'm linking up with the 2018 Finish-A-Long over at She Can Quilt.
