Three for me.

I think I'm finally ready to admit that three projects should be my maximum when listing my Finish Along wishes. I'm so easily influenced by projects I see my friends making that I rarely get around to finishing what I stated on my list. 

Here are three I know I can get done this quarter. My proposed second quarter finishes are:

1. My pickle dish variation quilt is a classic example of me being influenced by my Instagram friends. Rita posted her quilt, with a tutorial last year, so I used it as my inspiration for my Stash Sewciety Bee. I asked my bee to make the starry looking blocks and I made all the drunkard path blocks. I have finished machine quilting this large quilt. It just needs to be bound. 


2. My knitting project for this quarter is a simple pair of socks. 


3. My third project is a repeat performer on my Finish Along list. I need to make several more blocks for this flying geese quilt before I can quilt and bind it. My Stitch Tease Bee made these blocks. I really want to make a partial ring of flying geese to incorporate into the design and also add some negative space.


Linking up with the Finish Along hosts. Thank you for hosting!

I'm guessing you will ace your list Di! And leave the way open for some exciting new thing too! Love the starry quilt especially!

Love your version of the pickle dish quilt. It has such charm.

I think they're all very achievable. I suggest you take one evening and do all the cutting for the flying geese quilt, then the sewing will go very fast.

All three of those are definitely worthy of being finished. I'm especially enchanted by your Pickle Dish, look forward to seeing it all done.

Love the colours and design of your flying geese blocks. I think this would be perfect for a quilt for an older teen boy for the charity Siblings Together, supporting children in the U.K. care system separated from their siblings. Are you OK with me using this pic as an inspiration picture for when I'm mama later on this summer? Many thanks. Jenny thelilaccat (at) yahoo (dot) com

I love the colours of your flying geese blocks as well as the design. I'm mama for a quilting bee for the charity Siblings Together in the U.K.. are you ok if I use your picture as an inspiration for my bee members later this summer. I think, as you've discovered, it makes for a lovely bee quilt. In case I'm a no reply blogger I'm thelilaccat [at] yahoo [dot] com Many thanks Jenny
