It’s time to post my finish along list for Quarter 2. Although I finished a few things, I suspect I added as many new starts for this quarter! Linking up with Sandra of Sew of Course for 2019FAL
Newest things first – I’m a good starter and a rotten finisher, but no need to bore you with the same old list!, so you don’t have to scroll right to the bottom if you’ve seen it before!!!
1 Luna Lapin
I go to a small sewing group on Monday evenings – we meet in one of the group member’s beautiful sewing studio, but there isn’t enough room for sewing machines so we stick with hand projects. Luna is going to be our group sewalong for next term – I can’t wait to get started! I’ve photocopied the patterns & I’ve already ordered some Liberty Lawn for her dress and just need to wait for the other ladies to order our felt etc.
2. Charity String Quilt
I made a quilt for Quilts for Care Leavers last quarter; I’m trying bigger blocks this time ! These blocks will finish up at 11″ square so 24 blocks will make a good sized quilt!
I’m hoping to make 4 quilts this year for Q4CL – these string quilt come together quickly, but I’m ready for a change so we’ll have to see what comes next! One problem with the string quilt is that the strings multiply – I started with one bag of strings but people keep giving me more and I found a load more in Hazel’s scrap box!
3. Arabian nights Shawl
I like to have a knitting project on the go – I finished a scarf just after Christmas (I forgot to put it on my WIP list Doh!!) so thought I’d start another one for next winter.
This is Drops Arabian nights; it’s knitted in garter stitch from two balls of self-striping sock yarn. I’ve got a bag full of bits of yarn from knitting various pairs of socks so this seemed like a good way to use them up!
Of course Nutmeg loves to steal the balls of wool….
4. Xing Quilt
My second quilt from Bonnie Hunter’s String Frenzy book. I started this because i had some small pieces of paper leftover when cutting squares for another string quilt – these little string blocks sew up quickly, but I suspect the star blocks will take me a bit longer!
5 Trinket Quilt
There are 40 blocks to foundation paper piece over 8 weeks and then a couple more weeks to finish up the quilt. I’m going to keep mine fairy small so will only need a few more than the 40 blocks
6 Liberty Kittens Quilt.
This is Elizabeth Hartman’s Kittens quilt made in Liberty Tana Lawn and Kona Solids.
This is my Monty Memorial Quilt – he was one of our gorgeous Bengal Cross Boys that I got for my Birthday in 2016. He was a bit of an adventurer (and pigoeon catcher) and met his fate on the main road near our house last May.
Progress update: the top is finished, just need to piece the back and quilt it!
7 Log Cabin Cushion
Another Liberty Tana Lawn project (can you tell I love it?)
This is a pattern from a magazine – I’ll update the details later!
8 Straits Of Mackinac
One of Bonnie Hunter’s brilliant quilts!
This is from her book String Frenzy; I’m going to make a slightly smaller version as her quilts are huge!
I’ve spent a lot of time on this quilt in Q1 – all the parts for the blocks are finished and I’m still working on the millions of pieces for the sashing.
9 Everything in it’s place bag
This is another “not yet started” – the pattern, fabric and a load of zips and vinyl are sitting waiting for me to get going!
8, 9, 10 Love Notions Pemberley Tunic
I’ve got jersey fabric to make three of these tops. I love the pattern, but it needs a tiny bit of size tweaking to fit me better!
10 Misdirection Quilt
I cut this quilt and made the blocks for the first YMQ retreat four years ago!
11 Candy Squares Irish Chain Quilt
Another quilt I cut out for the first YMQ retreat 4 years ago!
12 Dresden QAYG
This WIP is probably 6 or 7 years old – all the blocks are made but I want to quilt as you go with red sashing
13 Granny Square
Another elderly WIP – these were all the rage on Instagram a while ago!
14 Petals Quilt
It feels like I cut out a million of these petals!
A lot are fused to the squares, but it’s going to be a huge amount of quilting!T
