Finish-A-Long 2019 Quarter 1 goals

I guess it's not a surprise, but some of these are OLD.  I need to clear out a bunch so I can start new things without guilt.  I am apparently EMPRESS of WIPS.  One of my personal goals this year is to get rid of stuff I don't need/don't really want to do any more. I also want to sew clothes.  (I'm a bit torn on this one because I need to lose weight...and part of me wants to wait until I'm "skinnier" but then part of me says that's crap....I have plenty of fabric and deserve to feel that I look good in something I'm proud of making.)  I'm also not a good example for the Finish-A-Long because some of these won't have pictures....Please note YOU need pictures.  I can't win anything and have an insane list, so, there's that...ahem.

Sewing Goals

1.  Violet Craft's Lion quilt (SLOWLY hand GLACIER paced)

2.  Tula sampler block quilt, top done

3.  Tote bags.  (My plan is to make these as the year progresses so I have a stack of go to presents handy.)

4.  Garden Gate (partially quilted)  I hate the first part I did and am trying to decide if I really just wanted a mix of hand and machine quilting rather than ripping out the first part of what I did.

5.  Round robin Improv.  The top has been done for  A LONG time.  I'm just not feeling like my quilting skills are up to doing this one justice.

6.  Milky Way Sampler, hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts  (top done and recipient chosen).  This one is a priority finish.

Wow, I thought I'd reached the end of your list and then you listed more! :) Some fabulous projects on there, I look forward to seeing some finishes.
