2014 Finish-A-Long, Q2

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.

Next up is my Selvage Block Along quilt. I have about 12 more blocks to make and then I will decide on a layout and start sewing the blocks together. This is one I really want to finish, but since it does not have a deadline I keep pushing it aside.

These socks are for my secret Post Sew South partner. I have one sock finished and have turned the heel on the second sock, so I am pretty sure I will make the May 1, mailing date.

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.

I get to pack up all my goodies too. I am moving in six weeks.

Totally do-able. Great idea to make socks for the swap! I wish I'd thought of that. I'd never get them done in time if I started now though. :)

Good Luck, it all looks achievable. I feel your pain with the packed up sewing stuff, I am still working out of boxes in lots of rooms, and it is driving me mad!

I can't wait to see your Briar Rose quilt. It's going to be so pretty!

I think the re-organise sewing space will be your most time consuming finish! At least you have some pretties to play with in the meantime!

Looks like a good list for someone who had their sewing space stolen!

You have some great projects here!

Lovely projects to work on! The last one looks like the most challenging! Good luck!
