So I didn't complete even one single quilt I posted about for the Quarter 3 Finish-A-Long (my last finishes were in Quarter 2) at She Can Quilt. However, because of the big move I'm letting myself have a bit of slack on that - BUT it means I have to work harder to finish my quilts in Quarter 4!
I can do it!
Fourth Quarter Finish-A-Long List:
1. A Weekend in the Country
No progress has been made on this. Still trying to figure out a nice backing fabric and get over how freaking huge it is!
2. A's Quilt
Again, no progress has been made - I have everything I need to finish it, I just need to get at it!
3. Irish Breakfast
Small progress! I pieced the blocks together but now I'm not sure if I want to add a border or just leave it baby sized.
No progress so I'm not even gonna change the description I wrote for the last post! --> So this little bottle isn't even a whole block. It takes five to make one block - and I want the whole quilt to be made of these blocks. I have a few more milk bottles partially sewn in the stack here but I still have a long way to travel on this project.
5. Night Candy
At the time of the last post this hadn't yet been named but lo and behold a name came to me!
Night Candy expresses it's darkness and its "pop"-y ness all at once. Ironically, night is the one time of day that I don't crave sugar. This New York Beauty Medallion Quilt turned out to be such a wonderful surprise when all I started out to do was learn a little foundation paper piecing. The new name isn't the only progress that has been made on the quilt. Mark moved down to Key West about a month before I did and I spent every minute of those first few nights after he left finishing the top. I knew I was going to send elna away to be cleaned for two weeks and that it would take a while to get settled in to our new place and I didn't want to lose my quilt mojo! Now I just need to find a proper backing fabric!
6. Fish School
Of course, while I didn't finish any of the ones above, I started a new quilt! And it is farther along than any of the others - it just needs to be bound! I am also writing up the pattern for this quilt and it will be available soon! I'll reveal the full design soon!
Once again I'm putting this list is out in the Universe and I plan to have a few finishes this quarter!
