Q2 Finish Along Roundup

Not my best showing this quarter. I had four projects on the roster:

1. My Spring Bloom project, which I did finish:

2. A long-ago-pieced quilt top that I wanted to get quilted. Success!! This is its post.

It finished at about 50" x 60" and I quilted it on a longarm. I'm so happy that it's not sitting unfinished anymore!

More photos are in my Flickr stream, here.

Items 3 and 4 (Jeweled Squares and my Gee's Bend mini) aren't done. Instead, I finished a whole lot of other stuff, including:

A mini quilt to practice stitching on the longarm. I cut up a so-old-it-is-practically-vintage FQ bundle of Tina Givens fabric and pieced it in a really simple patchwork arrangement.

Different quilting in each square. That bottom right design is done with a ruler. So cool!

And the notebook covers for teacher gifts blogged here.

All in all, not a bad quarter. Stay tuned for my Q3 goals. Better yet, make some of your own and join in on the Finish Along!

  1. I am so in love with that black and white quilt, and how wonderful that it will be in the exhibit. Your quilting is great too, and it just gets better every time you make something.

  2. Pretty good odds I'd say! Yay for the long-time wip getting finished. And congrats RE: QKS!

  3. Your quarterly finishes is always an inspiring post. Maybe setting a goal for the quarter is a good idea......

  4. Beautiful quilts - love the Plus one and your Selfie is stunning!!

  5. Beautiful quilts, especially your Selfie - it is absolutely awsome!

    I have mentioned your Selfie Quilt in my blog as a good example when I introduced my own playing with Sumo Paint image processing program - work in progress.



I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
