Quarter 4 Finish Along- Projects to complete in 2019

I am making my list a bit shorter for this Quarter of the Finish Along at Capitola Quilter. I need to be a bit more realistic on my "To Complete" list. So if I'm going to try to quilt a bed quilt which is #1 on my list, I think I'm just sticking with my smaller unfinished projects for the remainder of the Finish Along projects.

1.) I am participating in Happy Quilting Melissa's Starstruck Quilt Along and I honestly would like to have my completed Quilt Top quilted and bound by the end of 2019. This is a photo from the Baby Size and I am making the Queen Size. The Quilt Along finishes in November so I'm going to try to get it done.

2.) Would like to finish this Frivol. I have chosen it for my OMG for October at Elm Street Quilts so surely I can try to get this accomplished.

3.) Would love to finish this Bonnie & Camille table cover. It is Christmas fabric so I would love to have this on my corner table in my family room this year for Christmas.

4.) This NEST Hexi Door hangar. It is 90% complete so I am going to try to complete it.

5.) Since Christmas is around the corner, I would like to give a Zipper pouch to my mother and my sister for a gift. So I will add this to my Quarter 4 list.

6.) Plus this 2nd Zipper Pouch kit.

7.) This Simple Whatnots Mini. I would think that I should be able to finish something this small. I'll give it a whirl!

8.) I would like to complete is this Sew Sampler Mini and turn it into a pillow.

8.) I might at well add this to my list. I would like to make this into a pillow, also. This is from the Moda Bake Shop website and is a pattern by Jen Daly. She makes such cute patterns.

In reality, it would be nice to complete all of these by the end of the year, but I truly don't know. Many thanks to all of the hosts for this event. I'm sure it is no small chore. Plus, thanks to all of the great sponsors. I do try to shop when I can.

Baby Size for Starstruck Quilt Along

Yeah! I got the next section, which is the baby size, done for the Starstruck Quilt Along at Happy Quilting Melissa. Gotta love chain piecing. That helped to finish this even though I was away camping all weekend.

Next, we will be moving onto the Lap quilt size. I'm enjoying this so far and will start working on the next section when it is posted on Wednesday, 10/9/2019.

Trying to Finish an old Frivolous Table Runner

I am trying to keep my OMG for October on the lighter side. This is because I am involved in 2 Quilt Alongs so I need to keep on top of those.

Therefore, I am choosing this small table runner to be quilted and bound for my One Monthly Goal for October at Elm Street Quilts.

I do like having a separate goal each month (other than keeping up with my Quilt Alongs) because that helps me work on my pile of unfinished quilt tops. Plus, it gives me something different to work on. This little quilt, when finished, will go nicely on my coffee table. This is one of the Moda Frivols. I think I started the quilt top about 1 year ago.

Q3 Finish-A-Long: Gingham Tote Completed

This is my 2nd finish for Q3 Finish-A-Long. I completed this Gingham Tote that is in Noodlehead's  "Handmade Style" book. I have been using it now for a month or so and I really do like it.

Here is my Original post for Q3 goals. It is #18 on my original list. I am linking this finish to Capitola Quilter Q3 Finishes
