2016 Finish Along Q1 report

My Q1 Finish Along list was pretty simple - four projects. That's it. How did I do?

1. Bee Sewcial Winter quilt. Not yet finished, and probably won't be before the deadline. I've begun quilting this quilt, and it's going okay but I don't want to rush it just for the sake of getting it in under the wire. I will carry this project forward to Q2.

2. Modern Stripes. YES! It was admittedly a "gimme" (only had the binding left to do when I put it on my Q1 list) but hey. It's a finish. The link with all the photos is here but I will link up this post to report on it.

3. Gee's Bend Mini. No. It's currently AWOL, actually. I blame the move. Sigh.

4. Mod Corsage. Actually, I did a bit more appliqué and used this sweet block as my starter block for this year's VMQG Round Robin.

The Finish along really helps keep me focused on finishing the projects I really want to finish. Why not join us for Q2?

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!
