2017 Finish Along first quarter goals

It's time to link up my first quarter goals for the finish along! 

First up, I WILL finish my Liberty Plus quilt, which I have decided to make into a pillow. As you can see, I'm almost finished with the English Paper Piecing....
Second, I will finish my Modern Block of the Month from McKinney Modern Quilt Guild. The topper is pieced, it needs to be quilted and bound. This has been a fun project!
Third, this beautiful bundle of scraps needs to become a pillow cover for my friend, Chris. The guild had a scrap swap and I was lucky to choose Chris's fabric to work with!
Fourth, I will make my Word of the Year quilt for 2017. I haven't chosen fabric (or even a color scheme!) yet, but I've been doodling a bit and playing with ideas. Oh, I also haven't shared my word here yet! It's Present, as in BE Present (not "buy me a present" haha). I look forward to exploring this more....
Fifth, and finally, I'm going to get back to making myself some garments. I'm thinking this fabric and pattern will be a good place to start...
So that's my list for the first quarter. I'm linking up here.

Good luck! I list with some variety, like this one, seems a smart goal!

I can't wait to see your Liberty project get finished. I know it will be so pretty. Someday, I will have more Liberty. Right now, I have one F8th, I think.... I love that you have a list of projects to be finished. I have a bunch of things to finish, but I haven't gotten my act together enough to make a list, yet. I'm sure you'll get it all finished up!

I love your word for this year! I know you get get your list done, or at least make a big dent in it.

Whew! At first I thought you were going to list the things you had finished already this year!!! LOL LOvely projects on the go. I guess your word is rather like the Buddhist thing about living in the moment. Focusing just on what you are doing even if it is simply brushing your teeth. Love it.
