Quarter 4 Finishing Plans

After a miserably unproductive quarter 3 - NO finishes, in case you are wondering - I am editing and lengthening my Q3 list for quarter 4. After all, if I give up on these projects they will never be finished! And having them in the list at least motivates me to pick some of these up and work on them. While finishes are the aim of the finish-along, my personal aim is progress...

1. Drunkard's Path

The drunkards path blocks have been transformed into a quilt top, and I have progressed so far that I thought that I would manage a finish in quarter 3. It will surely be done in this last quarter of 2016.

2. Working on a non-quilt project, too.

 The project in this lovely basket (basket described in a previous blog post) has a deadline, and definitely will be done soon!

3. Hearty

The quilt top from (More) Hearty Good Wishes fabrics and sashiko-stitched linen is now finished. It needs to be quilted and bound.

4. 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! Rolled over from last quarter, still working on it.

5. Cubes quilt
Not worked on this at all in quarter 3, time to finish it though, it's so close!

6. 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...

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

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

As you see, more than plenty to be getting on with!

Linking up with the Quarter 4 Finishalong!



  1. You certainly have a lovely group of projects to choose from, Sandra. You are so close to finishing a few of them. You got this!

  2. I totally agree. Sometimes it is not that many finishes but still a lot of progress. Good attitude! :) Especially love your drunkyards path but wish you the best for all your projects.

  3. The cubes quilt with triangle corners on the blocks,my pick for the first in line for a finish. Every one will be waiting, and sometimes having a choice is way better than just one big one waiting to be all done.

  4. I love your sunflowers, it would be nice to add some sunshine in winter. And I love all things curve pieced, so I'm curious about the improv quilt - looking forward to seeing your finishes.

  5. You have some lovely projects in the making; good luck finishing them!

  6. Nice. I am looking forward to learn more of your projects. Good luck finishing some.

  7. Love the Drunkard's Path project. Very pretty ♥

  8. That's some list! It looks like you are close to several finishes, so hopefully it will soon be shorter. There's some quilts here I can't wait to see completed.

  9. That is some ambitious list Sandra, LOL. It's nice to see that you have been making progress though and it's like seeing old friends the have the projects listed again. I'm looking forward to seeing how you did at the next quarter!

  10. Love this list! Good luck! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts.
