Q2 FAL Goals

For Q1 I was pretty conservative with my goals, but this quarter I really want to push myself.
1.  This might be impossible, but I would like to finish my Maple Leaf Rag quilt.  I am LOVING hand quilting it, but I have carpal tunnel in my hand and don't want to injure myself so I'm trying to take it slow.  But I can't wait to finish this one up so I can use it.  This pattern is from Sarah Fielke's book Material Obsession 2.

2.  Over the weekend I started a new quilt after seeing Amanda's posts on Instagram (are you on Instagram? my username is ericajackman).  It is the Bangles quilt from Sarah Fielke's amazing new book.
3.  I don't have a photo because this project is way hiding in the back of my closet, but a few months ago I started a simple patchwork square quilt for our bed.  Originally I was just going to use Lotta Jansdotter's Echo and Bella, but when I found out that Glimma would be coming out soon I put the project on hold.  I have already preordered a bundle of Glimma so once that gets here I can finish this one up.

I am looking forward to finishing these so I can put them to good use :)

  9. Oh, I can see how those paths on the maple leaf quilt would be such a delight to hand quilt. Wish I could come over and join in!
