Second Quarter Finish Along 2017

I set my goal for three finishes and only finished two! I am really falling short on so many levels. I spent the majority of May making clothes and June cleaning out closets and looking through 8 huge boxes of my mom's old photos. If you have ever looked through decades of photos you will know how long this takes. My mom saved everything, including the photos where her finger was over the lens! Ha! Ha!

Now my finishes:
You can see my hopeful list of three planned projects here. 
The first finish was this pair of socks. You can read all about them in this blog post

My other finish is a large Alternative Pickle Dish quilt. I love this quilt and the way is all came together. It's super scrappy thanks to my Stash Sewciety bee, who helped me make all the starry looking blocks. For all the details see the blog post I wrote about it in April. 

I didn't get to the quilting and binding of this other bee quilt, but plan on finishing it for the next quarter. All the blocks are made and sewn into a quilt top, so if it cools off I should be able to baste it and quilt it real soon.

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who help to keep the Finish Along going and also to the many sponsors.
