'Shall I? Will I?' Should I? has been a theme going around my head.
Shall I join the Finish-A-Long (FAL) hosted by Leanne or not?
After vowing, when I first started quilting, that I would never have any WIPs I can name at least 3 that are languishing in my sewing area. So I think that I should throw my metaphorical hat into the ring.
I am therefore declaring the WIPs that need to be finished in this first quarter.
1. The first WIP requiring a finish is the quilt that I am making for my elder son's 18th birthday. It has been cut out and I have started the piecing. I do have the deadline for this falling in the Q1 so I should achieve this.

2.The second WIP has been hanging over the back of the chair in my sewing nook. It is my Turning 20 quilt in the 'Bella' line from Lotta Jansdotter. I like it but I am not loving the straight line quilting. I know that it wouldn't take that long to finish but it is never at the top of my list, so it is definitely included in Q1

3. The next project I am going to put into the FAL is sitting in large pieces and requires the piecing to be completed before any quilting can begin. I got distracted away from this quilt and have never returned. I would be great to finish my UJ quilt before spring arrives. I have two of the UJs pieced and the third is nearly there. I know that putting the top together wouldn't take a lot but it does need quilting too.

4. The final project that I am going to declare in the Q1 of the FAL is to finish a Perfectly Quilted tote that is laying out on
my sewing table pool table. It is started but is in the early stages. It is a present (so I am not showing you too much) and it should have been completed waaaaay before Christmas.

That is all that I am going to put on my list for the first quarter. I have another quilt that is a WIP but I don't know yet if I will unpick it and repurpose the fabric as it looks a mess to me. I am going to sit on that one a while longer.
This list is probably a realistic list as I also have family birthdays to take into account during this quarter and hopefully there will be some swaps to take part in too.
Do you think I can do it or am I being a little ambitious here?
