Finish-A-Long Q3

Just 3! That's all I am committing to this time. I alway have big ideas and grand plans to finish so many projects but then I get sucked in to all sorts of new bees, swaps and Blocks of the Month quilts.
So here are my 3 that I really want to finish by October 1, 2013


1. Stitch Tease 2 quilt top. This one just came together so beautifully and I am anxious to get it quilted and put to good use before the summer passes me by. Needs to be basted, quilted and bound.

2. Modern Stitching Bee Flying Geese. This one will need a little more added to it because I asked for blocks of varying sizes. I think I am going to sash all of the blocks so they are the same size. That will give me some negative space and should fulfill the vision I have for this quilt. Needs sashing, basting, to be quilted and bound.

3. And then there is the Hexy MF that is starting to be a thorn in my side. I feel bad for not finishing it. It really won't take much more than a few more hexagon flowers and some vines added. Then I will need to sew it to the background fabric, baste, quilt and bind it.



So that's my 3 for three months. Doable, right?

I have promised my son a king sized bed quilt for his loft and also to make a quilt from a friend's (who recently passed away) Hawaiian shirts. 

Thanks to Leanne for taking care of linking this to the FAL 3 while I am on vacation.

Seems perfectly reasonable, but I know how easy it is to get distracted, good luck!

The Hawaiian shirts sound like a wonderful memory quilt xxx

Great to see you not putting pressure on yourself....it's not always about the destination, is it? Enjoy the journey! Looking forward to seeing how our bee blocks come together!

Three in a quarter does sound very doable - one a month. Once again, we're off to the races!

Gorgeous WIPs! I love that turquoise quilt top with a pop of yellow! The bee quilt is going to be fabulous with the negative space. Great colours! How exciting to be so close to finishing a hexie quilt!
