October OMG and FAL Q4 Goals

It's time again to set some goals.  I like participating with OMG and Finish Along 2017 as it's a good way to be "accountable" to finishing up WIP's.

My October OMG is to finish this Letter A wall hanging I created using Jaybird Quilts' new book -- Alphabet Soup.  I am going to challenge myself to do a little bit of hand quilting with perle cotton.

I have four goals for FAL Q4:

1.  Letter A wall hanging (as above).

2.  Gem Stones.  I made these here back in February.  It's time to figure out how to quilt these four wall hangings.

3.  Zipper Pouches.  I bought three zipper pouch kits from Connecting Threads a year ago.  Time to buckle down and get them made.

4.  Slippers.  This is not a quilting project, but it's crafty.  It's been a long time since I've done some knitting, so I thought this pattern would be a quick and easy way to give it another try.  I wonder if I have any orange yarn....... 😃

I'm slowly making my way through my list of WIP's.  I have high hopes to get them all done before the end of 2017.


  1. Only 4 projects eh. Orange slippers would be ideal for you. I like your grouping of four wall hangings, I think some echoing would be nice oh and maybe some swirls.

  2. Hand quilting is a great idea. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  3. I love that cartoon. Good luck with your goals Anja. I love those minis!

  4. Of course you have orange yarn . How can you not have orange yarn 😉?

  5. Good list! I love those gems and can’t wait to see them quilted! Have fun! :-)
