3rd Quarter Finish-Along - ta-da/to-do
Hello if you’re playing along over at Rhonda’s for the 3rd Quarter Finish-Along. Hello if you’re not. That’s everyone covered.
July? Really? Summer? Really?
Due to circs beyond, I missed the deadline for what I managed to finish last quarter, but aside from my Quilt of Good Intentions for Siblings Together, which has been finished and sent off to its new home, there was zilcho action, so this is a ta-da/to-do post …
Frankly, we could save us a heap of time if we just went to my 2nd quarter post - you’ll see the same guiltily unfinished projects. Sometimes I feel like my Finish-Along journey is akin to visiting a home for unwanted abandoned pets - you love them all but can’t commit to only one so end up leaving empty handed.
Obese Swoon is far too big for my pathetically weedy machine and my sanity, so I’m going to wait until (a) I get a new machine OR b) I have saved enough to have it long-arm quilted.
So, she has a bye until next quarter.
1. This one, however is still shivering like a whippet in the cage of shame and is my first entry into the next quarter:
The Not The Wedding Quilt was finally deconstructed back to triangles about half way through last quarter. It has remained thus for the remaining half of the quarter, so it’s a must do for the summer.
Unfortunately, I am still not even started on piecing the Wedding Quilt Mark II that this is supposed to be replaced by – Hey, Rhonda? Wanna rename this the Start-Along? …
2. Next up is my FQ Winterkist Designer Challenge, which I need to finish by the end of August.
I’m going to rag quilt a Crimbo Bath Mat …
These are the fabrics Lynne@LilysQuilts sent me … Squeee! I love Monica@HappyZombie’s eye for detail in her prints. The colours are lovely – not too highly saturated - the red is a lovely Heinz Tomato Soup red …
Hols are beckoning (from next Monday YAY!) and I’m hoping that a ridiculous amount of time will be filled with lovely languid EPP-ing –
I’m doing a scrappy gingham-centric version of Katy@ ImAGingerMonkey’s Spring Carnival and not putting myself under any finishing pressure for that …
