Although I don't believe the first 1/4 of the year has already gone, I've been considering what to commit to in Q2. I admit that I was a bit mean with the number of finishes in Q1, so I've tried to stretch myself a little this quarter. I'm not going to have so much time as I'll be out on the garden more (if the weather ever gets any better) and a few visitors booked in, and a trip to the UK for a wedding. But here goes
1. The Blue Lagoon quilt
I only have to add some borders, quilt and bind it, so this should be a cert. Although the fabric I bought for the backing was not the right colour, so I have to search for some more.
2. Siblings Together
This is quilted now and I just need to sew the binding on and add a label, then I can gt it off in the post.
3. Stitch Tease Quilt
Just over 12 months ago I made this block for myself for the Stitch Tease Bee.
I sent it off to Hadley, and only last week it came back incorporated into a quilt top with blocks made by my fellow stitch teasers. As we are going for a bee wide/world wide reveal next week, I can't show any more, but this quilt is on my list of finishes, and will most definitely be done, and soon!
4. Circa 1934 quilt
A while ago I bought a jelly roll of Circa 1934, without any real idea of what it was for. I've been wanting to make a surprise gift for a friend, so after a bit of thinking I came up with using it with this pattern
|Avignon Picnic from the Moda Bakeshop|
|The S block|
|The Z block|
Maybe if it's on the list to finish, I might get around to tackling it again, but at the moment, I'm not enthused.
5. Little Blue Bag. (good name eh?)
From the leftovers from the Blue Lagoon quilt, I started to make a little square bag, for my sewing bits and bobs, and possibly for the Sample swap at the Fat Quarterly retreat in June.
Then I cut the lining panels too small, and I have no more fabric that will do! So this is another one that has to wait for a trip to the fabric shop.
6. Wheels on the bus.
I asked to join the X factor pillow swap this month, but when I was accepted, thats when I found out that it was due to finish on the 19 th April, not start. I also found out that there was a theme, and this round the theme is circles. Yep, my nemesis! Nevertheless, I still thought I'd give it a go, and picked out a pattern that I have wanted to have a go at for a while, called the wheels on the bus
I made 4 circles
|I can't get a good photo, but you get the gist|
I think that'll do for this quarter. I'm confident that I will finish the first three quilt and the bag, but the other two are in doubt!
Thanks to Leanne as usual for all her work hosting the FAL.
