Last quarter I only finished one project (again!), and it was a rather small one, too. I enjoyed making it though, and it was another planned project off the list, so I won't complain. It does mean that there are again a lot of projects from my last list rolling over to this one for the third quarter. I even was brave enough to dig out some old project that never made it onto the list before. I'm not promising I have every project on my list now, but we're getting a bit closer. Now I only have to make a proper effort to actually finish some of them!
1. Flower Fans
This project was started a while ago with the local quilt group. I am designing it as I go along, and I am finally using my collection of batiks. I have been working on this since the last quarter, only a small bit done though.
2. Feathered Star top
Yes, you guessed it, this still needs quilting!
4. Cubes quilt
5. Curved improv
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 lack of experience too much... (also not changed from last time).
7. Stack and cut log cabin
9. Black and white/folk fabrics quilt
This collection of fabrics are mainly Dutch national costume style fabrics ( I think I have a few more stashed away). I cannot decide whether I will move it to a black and white quilt (leaving out the red and adding different B/W or even grey fabrics), or whether I will keep to the folk style and include the red. Decisions to be made before I can start sewing.
10. Log cabin
12. ABC doll's quilt set
13. Lily Lapin's wrap/shawl
14. Flannels for a traditional quilt
15. Goody goody binding kit (swap item)
- no image -
I have joined in with the Modern Quilters Ireland summer swap, for which I need to make a "Goody goody binding kit" from a pattern by Lella Boutique. I have decided on a theme, but it is so personal that I cannot reveal it here, in case the recipient will guess I am making for her... It will have to be finished in two months, so this should be one I will most likely actually finish this quarter.
16. Flying geese sampler
- no image -
Lastly, I have a Flying Geese quilt hidden away (deeply hidden away, therefore no picture at the moment). It is purples and blues and creams, and has all variations of flying geese blocks in it. I started hand quilting it ages ago, so it needs finishing off the quilting, and binding.
I am sure if I took more time looking, there are more projects lying around. But I think this will keep me busy for the coming three months, if not three years! Maybe even three decades will be needed...
Linking up with the 2017 Quarter 3 Finishalong at She Can Quilt.
Now I better get busy stitching and sewing on this list!
