So, I layed them out. I took pictures and made notes of what I need to finish, not counting all the free time for the rest of my life... Here goes.
On the short list:
|Roberta Anne with an"E"|
|Twisted Mystery 20??|
I have no idea what year this is from. The year before I started at Jim's? It's huge. And, complicated. I'm 95% finished if I want to go the distance. Or, be done with the center and call it a lap quilt. But then, what to do with all the extra pieces I've already made? Fine. Second decision made, I'm going the distance. I think I only have to make Flippin' Flowers to finish, then convince Jane Hair to quilt it before June. I'd like to make it a wedding gift. We'll see if I get it done...
This one has been around awhile, too. It's not nearly as badly done as I envisioned in my mind. I had put it aside because I wasn't a huge fan of my workmanship. But, really, they're pretty good. I think I just get frurstrated with repetitive things.
I need to decide if I want sashing or not. I think, not. It could be cute block to block with little black, little pink, bigger black borders. Decision 3, done.
Another one I don't hate as much now that I've taken a break from it. All it needs is quilting. A perfect time for me to master free motion work.

This was my TAS challenge for 2015. I need to prep it for a scalloped border and buy backer & batting. Then, patiently wait for my name to come up on Judy Burk's list. I'm giddy with anticipation! So, I guess, basically I met my challenge. We didn't have to finish the project, just work on it. I know, we're a bunch of go-getters!
I just have to add a thin black border to State Flowers. Another one that I hated while I was making it. Getting it out to photograph, I realized just how much I love it now. This is another one that I'll quilt myself.
Here's another REALLY old one. It's a dresdan flower with origami centers. I started it as a store sample for Sweet Annies. So. Long. Ago. It just needs quilting. The folded centers make this quilt top crazy heavy! Rich will love that.

I got this fabric for Christmas last year. I made the top right away but never quilted it.
|Shoe Shop Girl|
I made this baby quilt awhile back and didn't know what to do with it. Turns out my cousin is going to be a grandma this summer and it's a boy!
Bethany graduated in May and I don't think I've worked on this much since then. I think it needs 2 more shoes, a border and then quilting. Now, Sierra graduates this year and I haven't even started hers...
I don't know if I did myself any favors by writing it all down. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed just thinking about it. I think I just need to grab one and get started. Realistically, I could grab 1 a week to finish it. That would knock out 6. Not bad for a start to 2016.
Mind you, this is just the short list...
