Flying through the Year - Time for Quarter 3 Finishalong Plans

With another measly three finishes last quarter (HERE, HERE and HERE), my list is not really shrinking fast! Time for an updated list, with many still on it from last quarter, but also some new additions. One day I will finish them, hopefully some this quarter... I keep trying anyway!

1. Hearty

This quilt top from (More) Hearty Good Wishes fabrics and sashiko-stitched linen is virtually finished. Time to make this top into a quilt, though I am still debating if I will add a border to it...

2. Oakshott
If I keep it in the list, it will be finished one day, right?! Every quarter some quilting stitches are made in this one, slow going though!

3. Cubes quilt
I did work on this one for a day or two last quarter, still not finished though.

4. Curved improv

The top is (probably) finished, time to turn it into a quilt.


The blocks are together for years, I intended to quilt it for free motion quilting practice. The idea is that the riot of colours and shapes will not show up my inexperience too much...

5. Stack and cut log cabin
Another top ready for quilting!

6. Feathered Star top
Yes, you guessed it, this needs quilting!

7. Drunkard's Path

While on holiday I cut a charm pack into Drunkard's Path pieces with the fantastic templates from Jenny of Pappersaxten, and started piecing them together by hand. I am not sure if I will continue by hand, or will grab my machine one day, but I do want to see how these will look together when done!

Better get to it pronto!

Linking up with the Quarter 3 Finishalong!



  1. You have plenty of fun projects to choose from Sandra! I am particularly jealous of your Feathered Star...have so long admired them but never made one! Also, that Drunkards Path in PB&J? It will be so fun!!!

  2. Oakshott, is that silk? and cubes, my pick for today. Love those fabric combos, deep and rich, with lovely contrasts.

  3. Very lovely collection of projects there Sandra... if you keep plodding with them, you'll finish something eventually!

  4. The projects are each so beautiful Sandra, that I think the hardest part would be deciding which you want to finish first. I will write a real letter soon!

  5. Even if you can't cross anything off your list you are making progress on lots of fronts. Maybe there'll be a quarter where you have 27 finishes!
