My Quarter 3 Finishalong List

 - follow the link to go straight to the Q3 Finishalong linkup if you want to link up your own list (but hurry, the link closes soon) -

It is time to post and link up my list of unfinished projects for quarter 3 of the Finish-A-Long  (follow this link for more information - anyone with an UFO, WIP or similar that they want to finish is welcome to join).
This quarter I am just editing my previous list, taking out the projects that have been finished. I simply don't have enough time at the moment to think much about it so I am taking the easy way out...

One change though, I am using my Project Planner (or Project List) that I made for a Finish-A-Long tutorial. If you like, you can use that, too, it can be downloaded from the Project List blog post (free), and it is great to keep track of your projects! If only I could find the list I made to show off my Planner the first time, I could have added Q3 to it, but I seem to have misplaced it. So much for planning and being organised!!

So this is how my list for Quarter 3 of the 2018 Finish-A-Long looks:

1. As part of Cork Textiles Network's 20th anniversary there will be an exhibition with work based on a book. This will be a selected exhibition for the Knitting and Stitching shows, but all work entered will be exhibited locally first, from which the selection will be made.

I have chosen my book, and I have some fabrics, though I need to add some more.
The ideas have been playing around in my head a bit, and I have been working on some parts, but this basically needs to be done still. Fortunately the deadline has been extended, but there is not much time left...

2. Feathered Star top

Well yes, this still needs quilting, but I really want to finish this one! It is one of my favourite tops.

3. Cubes quilt

This is the quilt closest to a finish. To finish quilting the borders, binding, and a label of course.

4. Sunflowers

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... I'm keeping it in here, because I really should get practising my FMQ.

5. Log cabin

The top is finished, and I am very happy with it. I had it basted, and started quilting, but I wasn't pleased with it. The tension of my machine played up, and I disliked the wadding I used. So I have taken it apart, bought new wadding and hope to get it quilted soon.

6. Shawl/wrap for myself

Inspired by the wrap I saw at Ireland's online fibre and crafts magazine Olann and called "Mind the Gap" (though I'm leaving out the gaps). The image above was posted on my Instagram ages ago, it now looks like this:

I am well into the decrease so it shouldn't be that long. If only there were more hours in the day...

7. I cannot resist to add one more project that was not on my Q2 list: A Black and White quilt:

I am still not sure whether I will add some of the red fabrics into it, but the current idea is to work with equilateral triangles, in a limited scrappy way, I think... I have a dinky cutting template, time to give it a go!

Linking up with the 2018 Finish-A-Long for Quarter 3 at the post on my own blog.




  1. Sandra, I literally just posted mine and laughed when I read yours as I did the EXACT SAME THING. LOL I totally get ya, hopefully you get time to think about and work on these projects.

  2. Red, white and black looks wonderful.

  3. I LOVE your list (and your use of your organizer)! I'm off to Staples to get my bound. Good luck and on behalf of all of us, thank you for hosting AND joining up!
