2016 Q1 FAL

The only other time I’ve participated in the finish-a-long was TWO YEARS AGO! And I never bothered linking up finishes. I can’t remember which ones I finished during the quarter and which were finished later. But I did finish five of the ten I proposed. (Two were queen sized quilts, so I feel like that should count extra).

But that was then and this is now. So here’s what I’m proposing for Q1 2016.


  1. blue 15 minute blocks project

I started these in my late November workshop with Victoria Findlay Wolfe. I’ve got 51/80 blocks made, then sashing needs to happen before layer, baste, and quilt.


2. Finish one of the big quilts, either rainbow or grey tea leaves

These are super queens, something around 96″ square. And my domestic is tiny. Both are half quilted and that needs to change. I will get ONE of these done this quarter.

3. My soccer hexie project.

Buy background fabric, layer, baste, quilt. Also pull out the templates. Write a blog post for the history and multi-year design process on this one.


4. gap improv

Finish the quilting on this. Bind it. Right now the blue/yellow bit is all quilted. Nothing else is though.

Gap Improv

5. Husband door quilt

FML on this one. I need to add another row on the bottom. Talk husband out of “it needs to be bigger!”. Usual layer, baste, quilt, bind. Figure out how to hang it.

Value: barn raising

6. I’m in the Mighty Lucky club, so that will be an ongoing project each month. Putting it on my list to keep myself accountable.


So I’m linking up with Stacey at SLOStudio (and all the other hosts). Good luck everyone!
