FAL 3rd Quarter

Well I'm not sure why I'm putting me or you through this again after the second quarter was such a washout with none of the four quilts on the list anywhere near finished, we have hot weather gauranteed for the next couple of months and I'll be in England for August but hey, there's always September!

So here's my list for what I would like to finish over the next 3 months.

My beautiful Stitch Tease quilt! I think I might add a scrappy border to it but this is definitely high on the list and will be done!


My Godson's quilt, which has made some progress and I'm nearly done quilting it..I 'm not happy with it but if I procrastinate any more he'll be too long to lie under it. I would like to finish this so that I can take it back with me next month and finally hand it over...but with temperatures in the late 30's early 40s I'm not taking bets.


What else? Oooh, my giant Cameo star quilt...I have the backing so just need some batting and binding.


...and just to make the list extra fun, let's add in my orange aqua and grey hexie quilt...yes, a hand sewn project!


I think that's more than enough especially given I have bee blocks and other sewing commitments which are long overdue!

Wish me luck...with 7 hours to go, I'm linking up with Leanne at She Can Quilt.

I love the colors in all of these projects! In your first quilt, I'm obsessed with the scallops on the side :) sounds like an ambitious (but doable) to-do list!

Your quilts are just beautiful. Don't worry about the finishes as long as your progressing. That the stance I have to take otherwise I would be quilting full time. Have a great day.

Di said...

Nice projects, even if you just finish one then it will be a result (that is my way of looking at my list) Di x

Hello! I have been the same as you. We have been away for 6 weeks (eekk) back home about 3 weeks now, I did managed to read some blogs while I was away but had to hit the "mark as read" button on most. Love your quilts, when I first started quilting I use to make and finish one quilt before I started on another one, hmmm, not sure when that changed! Its hot in France now, don't know how you cope with the heat over there, it's in the low 30s here and that's bad enough! Hugs xxxx

All great projects, and after the last couple of weeks hot weather, I can totally see why it puts you off quilting! Good Luck :o)

Gorgeous projects. I love your giant star, hexies and stitch tease quilts. Can't wait to watch these grow a bit over the next few months!

One has to have goals! Just don't stress if you don't reach them! Still love those hexies!

Carla said...

Wow! Beautiful quilts love that strip tease one and of course the hexies

Sarah said...

Good luck! It doesn't look too much for 3 months, but for one month it might be a stretch. Stay cool. We're busy trying to stay warm and dry in South Australia at the moment. It's like living in England.

blandina said...

Oh, I do love the Stitch Tease quilt, it is a bit of quirky art!
