Well, I might just sneak Wallander in during “bonus week”- Leanne has given us until the 7th to get our second quarter finishes in and I’ve been squaring up (well, as best I manage it really) this morning, a bit naughty really since I still have 3 little sections left to quilt but I ran out of thread yet again! And of course, progress was hindered in the usual way by my canine companion. Making binding tonight? Maybe.
So that brings me to what I want to achieve this month for the Lovely Year of Finishes, and also my WIP list for the finish along, third quarter to take me to the end of September.
This month for TLYOF I want to finish piecing my Helsinki Square Dance top! I’ve got eight blocks out of 12 made up and they’re all cut out, so hopefully that’s an achievable target, even with the Fat Quarterly Retreat and finishing those pendants (and I’d like to make a dress too!).
For the rest of the finish along, I want to completely finish the Helsinki quilt: quilting, binding and all, and get it sent off to become a magazine tutorial.
Secondly I want to finish the Forest QAL quilt, of which very little has been done so far (including scrap paper sketch), and the QAL entry deadline is the end of August…
Lastly, I also want to get my Row by Row quilt top assembled and finished. I think three’s plenty enough to be going on with, especially since I have a couple of big bee commitments to finish over the next two months.
