Last quarter I made it easy on myself and only put five things on my Finish A-Long list. I completed all five projects so I decided to make it easy again. This time there are five things on my list but only four will really count as projects eligible to compete on this list.
The first is a quilt for a secret someone. The top is all pieced and it needs to be basted, quilted and bound. I found the perfect fabric for the backing at Sew Modern in Los Angeles, where our monthly guild meetings are held. This Fig Tree fabric quilt will be my next finish and hopefully gifted soon.
Next up is a quilt I am making for Lemonade International. This is a charity I found through my friend, Valerie. It helps children living in a safe house in Guatemala. It is made with Briar Rose but it is a secret project right now, too. Let's just say it is going to make a little girl feel very special. The top is all cut and some pieces are already sewn together. I bought the backing last night at Sew Modern, too.
This is my project that will not count on the Finish-A-Long, but it is one that will take away a lot of my sewing time. This is most of my stash, packed away while we have a bathroom remodeled and then get ready for new floors to be installed and the interior walls to be painted. By the time the Finish-A-Long Q2 wraps up, this should all be back in my sewing room.
