WIP Wednesday - New Year's Edition

For the last two years I have made goals to finish up old WIPs and have had a varying amount of success.  I feel like I have a lot of irons on the fire right now, so I decided to list and prioritize all of my WIPs.  Here it is!

Skill Builder Sampler Quilts - I need to add borders to the large ones, but I have already quilted the small one and just need to finish the binding.

Meadowsweet Star Quilt -  I love this fabric!!!  I need to make 4 (?) more star blocks, sash the 8 inch blocks up to 12 inches, and put it all together.

Gold HST Quilt - need to put all of those hst together and quilt.

1930's Sampler - need to add borders and quilt

Dresden Plate Quilt -  need to applique all of the plates and centers on a background and quilt.

Red and White Sampler - I have a bunch more of these 4x5 Bee Blocks, but no picture.  I need to put the blocks together and quilt it.  I think I want to donate this as a raffle quilt to my very, very, very small local library - we need more books!

These last two I would really like to finish up sooner than later but I don't think that will be happening.  Most of my handwork time is in the evening and now my evenings are spent rocking and feeding the baby - I'm not complaining (for the most part) but handwork is not going to happen until she starts going to bed before 10 pm.  ;)

Flower Garden - I need to applique on the borders and find an amazing long arm quilter.

Hexagon Flowers - I've worked quite a bit on this since this picture, but I need to finish the last row, applique on borders, add applique flowers and hand quilt - this might not get done this year...  :)

I think that is enough to work on right now!  ;)  But of course, I want to start making a couple of baby quilts and other projects.  Thank goodness we are having a guild sewing day in a few weeks.  I need it!  What are you working on?

Linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday!
