Goals for Q4 Finish-A-Long!

For this last quarter of 2018, I am rolling over some unfinished projects from last quarter as well as a few new projects...

1. Zuma block: I used this vibrant new Tula Pink fabric to make a Swoon 16 block which I plan to make into a pillow to go with the Zuma Anchor quilt (see #5).
2. Infinity scarf: another crochet corner-to-corner scarf for a friend using this lovely Hue yarn.
3. Plus Squared quilt: using the pattern by Emily Dennis with these beautiful Aussie native fabrics by Jocelyn Proust - I have already made some of these blocks.
4. Chunky Crochet Cowl - using Lionbrand Woolease Thick and Quick yarn in Lemongrass.
5. Anchors Aweigh quilt: this is a Tula Pink pattern that I have always wanted to make and now I can sew it with the new Zuma range of fabrics.
6. White crochet C2C blanket for a baby girl.
7. Skipping Stones Quilt: using the pattern by Cindi McCracken for a quilt for my brothers birthday later this year.
8. Acadia corner-to- corner (C2C) blanket: I have quite a few balls of this Heartland yarn so hope to make a nice throw blanket for the bed.

9. Oh Deer baby quilt: a remake of the navy and orange baby boy quilt I made last year using the scrappy tripalong method of piecing.
10. Tula Pink - Hurray for Hexies EPP quilt: I have sewn most of the hexies in sets so now need to join them all together....
 11. Star bright baby quilt : the top is made - just needs quilting and binding.
12. Flannel baby quilt: blocks are made but I still need to finish off the flannel baby quilt.
Linking up my Q4 list with the Finish-a-long team here.

Minty baby blanket

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby but hasn't found out if she is having a boy or girl yet, so I decided to make her a baby blanket in a lovely mint green (which it seems is quite a tricky colour to photgraph!). 
I used my favourite crochet stitch, corner-to-corner (C2C) to do the blanket and I really like how it turned out.
I used a tutorial by Em's Fiber Arts to do a little border around the blanket which is just the right size for using in a car seat or pram.
This project was on my Q3 FAL list for this year so linking up with the 2018 FAL team.
