It’s April and that means we are in Q2 of a the 2015 Finish Along. I already posted about my April, Lovely Year of Finishes goal the other day.
For my Q2 finish along goals we are going to ROLL over many of the items from last quarter that got pushed aside due to moving, having a bit of a quarter-mid (one third?) life crisis-freak-out and chronic distraction syndrome.
Oh a squirrel!
My Q1 rollovers:
1. Half Square Triangle of Doom
Okay this project will have a better name when it’s done but with 400+ HST using Essex linen and a variety of prints it’s destined to be amazing. I don’t have a layout picked and I’m probably 100 HST’s away from having all the blocks squared up. This project could accidentally live on my design wall for a long time so adding it to the finish along ensures that won’t be the case. Realistically I may only get the top finished this quarter but my stretch goal is to get it 100% finished, quilted and bound.
2. Running Through Daydreams
This stinking quilt needs to be quilted and bound. It’s sat an unreasonable amount of time with the batting and backing and thread for quilting. I need no additional materials for this aside from binding but I’ve been stuck on how to quilt it for some time now. Time to make some decisions!
3. Plus what?
This quilt has also sat for far too long, I have the top, back and batting together and I’ve picked the thread as well. I’ve second guessed how to quilt this for some time but I think straight lines 1/4″ from both sides of the seams is what I’m going to do.
4. My First Clutch (DONE!)
I actually started cutting fabric for this the other day and am really kicking myself to finish it this time!
New additions to my to-finish list
5. Lizette Bag in C+S
I designed a handbag and am working on refining the details of it to make the handbag of my dreams. I got the fabric the other day but totally spaced on taking a picture. I posted about the bag’s first prototype the other day.
6. Triangle Baby Quilt
The Triangle baby quilt was an impulsive sudden start just before I moved. It was a Saturday night and I was in and should have been packing but instead I cut a bunch of triangles and put’ em together. Earlier this week I made progress when I basted and quilted it but I did the binding wrong and need to unpick it and redo the binding entirely.
