Finish Them!

When reading that title please pretend you are in the land of Mortal Kombat and channel this...

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.

4. Milk
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!


  1. Oh, I love the cliffhanger! They are all so beautiful. All I have to say is, FINISH THEM.

  2. Well, that last one you've got just about done- so that one has to get finished! And that medallion- Come On what a magnificent feat- keep it for 2013, don't drag it into 2014!! Do it!! Dropping in from Q4 QAL...

  3. So much loveliness! But I'm really digging that Night Candy quilt. Yum! :)

  4. Haha, that mortal kombat really brings back the memories! Your weekend in the country quilt is gorgeous! I'm excited to see what you choose for the backing. Night candy is also amazing. I'm excited to see what the last one is. I love a good mystery!

  5. Hopefully the universe will listen. You've got a lot of geese going on here, I'm impressed!
