Quarter Two Finish A Long Results Update
Quarter Two Finish A Long Update
This year we did join the Quarter Finish Along. Our friend and fellow blogger, Nicole at Handwrought Quilts, is one of the Hosts for the 2019 Finish A Long.
So how did we do this quarter? Should we even continue making a list? Our first quarter results were 6 out of 11 items finished.
Quarter Two – Our List
Here are the items we chose to finish over the last three months. Was it another overly ambitious list? Only time would tell and it contained three fewer items than last quarter!
Dr. Seuss #2 finished and listed on Etsy New Dr. Seuss #3 finished and listed on Etsy
- Cinderella quilt for Addi’s grandma – started
- Harley t-shirt quilt – nearing completion
Hidden Stars quilt top quilted Rainy Day quilted(YES!!)
- Autumn Leaf – started as a hand quilting project
- Sandra’s Beothuk QAL – is a quilt top
Quarter Two Project Details
The first six items on the list are a carryover from quarter one in some form or another. The two Dr. Seuss quilts that were each a non-finish because I was bored is no longer accurate. Both are complete and one has even been sold. An additional version, although not a part of this list, quilt top has been started as well. Here are photos items number 1 and 2 from the list above.
The Cinderella quilt #3 for Janice and Addison is actually a pattern called Her Carriage Awaits from Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. The fabric has been chosen and Sue has cut the fabric for the HSTs. Once the fabrics were sewn together we tried our layout in the photo on the right. It looks like much appliqué will be happening soon.
The Harley Davidson (#4) t-shirt quilt has just been started. The initial layout is pictured below, and the blocks were put in labeled piles for me to sew. I love that orange pop in the center. This quilt will be finished and handed off shortly.
Our June OMG project is #5 Hidden Stars, and it is now completely quilted and bound. More details about the sew along and finishing details were posted on Tuesday.
Speaking of quilting, only one older item is still on the list as a quilt top awaiting quilting.
That would be #7 Autumn Leaf that is still awaiting quilting. The Beothuk quilt along has just recently come to a completion, and our quilt top is finished.
Additional Quarter Two Items
Several unforeseen projects that did not make it on the list or were even on the horizon when this list was created include:
- Sue is hand quilting this newly pieced top we whipped together in May
2. Dr. Seuss #4 is a quilt top awaiting the sale of #3 on Etsy.
3. True Red White Blue table runner was a DrEAMi – Drop Everything And Make It project in May
4. One of two more Dumbo baby quilts (a June DrEAMi project)
Quarter Two Rating
Participating in the Finish A-Long is providing thrilling results. Projects will always sneak in because they seem to find their way to me, and I say okay. Sue is along for the ride and occasionally has a project that jumps to the first spot as well. On to the Third Quarter. How did you do on your list if you’re playing along? If you’re not – jump in for the July – August quarter. You might surprise yourself with what you finish.
