Taking aim at finishing

I know that a lot of people don't like to make resolutions or join challenges but the accountability factor works pretty well for me (except MyFitnessPal - I just can't seem to get in the groove with that one).  So when I discovered the 2015 Finish Along, I decided to jump in.  I have plenty of possible projects but for the first quarter, I am aiming at finishing three.
1.  The grey basket quilt needs the flowers embroidered and then it will be a fun big stitch project.
2.  My Sue Spargo inspired quilt is one border short of being a quilt top and will be machine quilted.
3.  My Ashby Shawl is part of a knit along with no end date but I would love to have it finished before spring.
4.  I am adding my orange prayer quilt from my previous post - a bit of applique and then some surface embellishment before quilting with Pearle cotton thread.

So there we go - my Q1 list for the Finish Along.  I hope I have made this manageable because it would be great to start the year off with some lovely finishes.

The basket quilt looks good. Doesn't look like you have far to go.

I love setting goals and reaching them. It works or me! I think you can do this!
As far as Fitness pal, you had a very long streak last year.... I know you can do it if you set your mind to it.

I always have a list of projects I'm working on, things I want to concentrate on at the moment. Your quilts look wonderful. I've always really loved the basket one particularly.:)

I love your style of quilts, thats why I was drawn to your blog. Do you make up your own patterns, because often I like to do that. I will stop back by and see what you are making. I liked your post about pulling out the quilt that you had started 3 1/2 years ago. I certainly could relate to that. I enjoy embroidery very much also and adding it to my quilts. Thanks for the inspiration.
