One of the lovely and smart people out there is blog-land is Leanne of She Can Quilt. Leanne hosts the 2013 FAL, where we can link up our finishing goals at the beginning of each quarter and check back in to trumpet our accomplishments (or bemoan the distractions) at the end of the quarter. Like many of you, I have more projects than I have time. And spring requires a lot of time in the garden, which cuts into sewing time.
I’ve got a couple of longstanding WIP to finish up for Q2. First, the Sew Serendipity lunch bucket bag. This has been sitting around for at least a year, or maybe 18 months. I added batting to give it some insulation, but it needs more stiffening. Add interfacing, and stitch it up! So I can stop taking my lunch to work in sad plastic bags. Miscellaneous aqua fabrics purchased from Sew,Mama,Sew!
Secondly, the Noodlehead 241 tote. Hopefully my summer purse. The black and beige flowers is an outdoor furniture type fabric I bought at the end of summer sale in September, the lining is beige linen. Interior zip pocket made, remaining pieces are cut and interfaced.
Thirdly, English paper pieced pillow cover. It’s basted, just needs to be quilted and finished. I made this due to inspiration from the Traveling Pic Stitch Blog Hop hosted by Quokka Quilts. I’ve always loved this tumbling blocks pattern, even before I started quilting.
My last goal is somewhat wishful thinking, it’s a twin quilt for my daughter from the Bonnie Hunter 2012 mystery quilt, Easy Street. Still needs some flying geese units, and I only have 3 blocks assembled. The blocks are 15″ square, and I need 15, plus setting triangles which are also pieced. Mostly 30’s reproduction fabrics.
