Q4- Goals for the last quarter in 2015’s Finish Along
Oh wow it’s the last quarter people!
I only actually finished one thing last quarter (from the list anyway), but the threat of moving to Canada is getting ever closer so I need to make more of an effort because I want to start with a blank slate- and a new machine. Come Q1 of the 2016 FAL I’ll be living in a different country, further from the sea than ever before and the time zone will be seven hours behind!
All but one of my quilt tops have been destashed, but I have made progress on everything that was on my list last quarter, even if I didn’t finish it, so that’s something.
I also need to start and finish my Schnitzel and Boo mini swap. I wasn’t going to join in because of all-the-stuff, but I did and it may have been a stupid decision. I have three weeks, that’s ages to make 16 tiny scrappy pineapple blocks, right?
This is now over halfway finished in terms of piecing. It depends on what happens but I may be going to a long arm place and renting a machine to finish it, or if that won’t be possible, I’ll be QAYG, so it’s going to stay in quarters until the decision is made. Currently I have a quarter made, plus enough to make another quarter with a few blocks left over. Whilst I’ve run out of white/LV strips, I haven’t dented the colour ones. I don’t have a lot of yellows and oranges though which makes me think I may need to make MORE scraps for better colour balance.
I’ve added an extra row- I sometimes take this one to EMMQG to force myself to work on it. It’s a struggle but I only have five more rows of HSTs to go. Not sure why I hate this one so much. This will be a good one to learn longarming on when the top is done. One of these will be longarmed by me!
I updated this yesterday – one more border to go. I stalled for a while after miscutting, but I’m getting there now.
Baby Jane Quilt
The top is pieced but I think I will be adding some bunny appliqué to at least two corners. I need to make my templates and go from there.
I started this in June and I don’t think I’ve touched it since then, so it may as well be on the list! I may be without a machine soon anyway so there will be opportunities to finish it up. This is what it currently looks like.
