Quilt Goals for 2017

Fancy Forest, I have about half the blocks done but I would love to finish it this year. 

 I have a large list of UFO's, about 56 projects. I have been keeping track of them for a few years now and review them every couple of months. Sometimes I am adding in new project and sometimes I get to mark a project as done. The finished projects get moved to a list of completed projects for the year. Then I know when I finished it too. 

Grand Illusion Mystery quilt, top is now done and waiting to be quilted. Not sure I have a photo of the finished top. 
Needs Quilting
  1. Bad to the Bone – quilting and binding
  2. Grand Illusions – Bonnie Hunter mystery from 2014 – Need to piece a backing and machine quilt ( started Nov 2014, top complete April 2015)
  3. Christmas Tree Shirt – mom did the piecing and I need to Quilt
  4. I am sure I have a charity quilt in a bin that needs quilting

Christmas Postage Stamp Quilt, I hope to have this quilt completed in time for a Quilt show this year. 
My Goal to finish this year, in light of there being 2 local quilt shows. I need to enter some finished work. One quilt show is in June, Edmonton Guild then in October is the Leduc Quilt show.
