The goal for September was to get a start on a new quilt for the Scientist in Training's dorm room. My start date for any quilt is when I start cutting the fabrics. And that has happened, there are even a few blocks up on the design wall. But I can't show any of these as the SIT follows my blog. So you'll have to just take my word for it that there's been a start.
There is one more day in the quarter, but not enough time to get another finish in for the 2017 Finish Along.
I didn't do too badly for the quarter. There were 4 quilts on the list to be finished. I managed to finish two.

It's a Mystery was last year's Meadow Mist Designs Mystery. The first clue in this year's mystery came out in September. So for once last year's mystery was finished before starting this year's.
The second finish for the quarter was Blooms and Butterflies.

The other two quilts on the list for third quarter didn't make it to the finish line. But there was good progress on both. Scrappy Coffee Cups made it to finished flimsy stage and has been sent out for quilting.

Actually, I heard from Trudy last night and the quilting is done. So these coffee cups will definitely be on my list to finish before the end of the year.
The last quilt on the "to be finished" list for third quarter was Christmas Angels. Though it didn't get close to being finished it went from just block units to finished blocks.

It's been a good year for finishes, there have been six. My record is seven finishes in one year. I'm likely to tie that for sure. As far as working down the UFO list, I'm pretty much where I was when the year started. But at least it's not getting any bigger. I'm finishing up my new starts, just not getting to the older projects on my list. but I've moved a few along this year. That should make it easier to get a few off the list next year.
Now to start thinking about what will be the October One Monthly Goal and what's going on the list for the fourth quarter of the 2017 Finish Along.
