Q2 Finish Along Plans

It's time to make some grandiose plans for Q2.  My Q1 plans went pretty well - all but 3 projects were completed.  That's 11 finishes, plus a few that weren't on the list (I think my count for Q1 so far is 16 finishes).  So for next quarter, I'm going all out, so that those "extra" projects I pull in on a whim are actually on my list this time.

First, my in-progress projects - these are ones that have not yet reached the quilting/binding stages, so they are the biggest stretch for finishing this quarter.
  1. Winding Ways - this is for a colour challenge, and is due at guild in May, so there is incentive to get it done.
  2. Ascension - another colour challenge, different guild, and also due for early may. It's ready for quilting and is pretty small so should not be a challenge to finish
  3. Blackford's Beauty   - my block of the month.  I should get my blocks back in April, so finishing the top & quilting it this quarter should be do-able
  4. Merry Mayhem New Year's Day mystery
  5. Northern Reflections

From my "to be quilted" list, I want to finish at least 2 per month which would be 6 this quarter.  I'm putting a bunch on the list though - some are quick & easy, others want more time/detailed quilting. Which ones I do will depend on my attitude of the day when my quilting day rolls around :)  And if the world smiles on me, they might all get done.
  1. turquoise &; brown rectangles
  2. turquoise & brown diamonds 
  3. turquoise & brown baby quilt 
  4. Building Blocks
  5. Easy Street - Bonnie Hunter 2012 mystery
  6. Glorious and Free 
  7. Brights baby quilt
  8. Tell it to the Stars - Judy Laquidara 2014 mystery
  9. One Block Wonder 
  10. Giant Scrappy Swoon 
  11. disappearing hour glass #3
  12. Baby Reflections
Photos below are in the order listed.

And my binding projects:
  1. 2 disappearing hour glass quilties
  2. Kaffe stripes quilty
I can't find in progress pics of any of these, so here they are waiting for binding:
