Finish-a-long – third quarter

2012 Finish-A-Long

Wow, we’re over halfway through the year and so far I’ve stuck to my goals in Rhonda’s Finish-a-long, so I may as well participate in part 3 too…

I’ve taken some more up to date pictures of my WIPs. So this quarter I need to finish…

The dog quilt. Out of necessity as it needs to be posted off in about 2 weeks. I have about 20% of the quilting left to finish, a bit of fabric painting and of course I need to bind and sleeve it before posting it off for the Festival of Quilts.

Another necessity is finishing the Snapdragon Quilt. My sister’s birthday is 16th July and I’m really worried I won’t get this finished. It’s just going to have simple grid quilting though so hopefully I should be fine… It’s 10 columns and I have¬†four done so far. I have made all of the 9 patch blocks and I’m making the snowballs as I go to break up the monotony.

This time I thought I’d go for three finishes, since round 1 was one finish and round 2 was two finishes. This is not a deadline but I’m sick of it being shoved under my drawers because I haven’t got room for it in my WIP drawer. It’s my Salt Air slash quilt. The white is actually curtain lining and it’s a brilliant, dazzling white. I want to finish this for me when the pressure is off a bit, so that will hopefully be next month unless I get distracted…
