Sidetracked (Finish a Long goals)

Like thousands of you, this week I made masks and scrubs bags. My local hospital, Northumberland Hills Hospital, partnered with my employer to make reusable masks for outpatients and others who require some protection but aren’t ill with Covid-19. I dropped off the scrub bags and mask buddies (to hold the elastics instead of sore […]

Lonely Q4 finish

So I finally got this quilted over Christmas. Then after a frustrating meeting of one of my extra-curricular groups, sat down and attached the binding. Most of the quilting and binding is with Gutermann white, easy, looks good, and will be sturdier than cotton thread. I may do more quilting with Gutermann, it’s easy to […]

Warm weather skirt finish

“Mom, since when do you wear a skirt?” “Why can’t you just say, gee, that’s a nice skirt, you look pretty.” This is the size XL of the Oliver + S Everyday Skirt, really easy to make. I’m not sure I like the 1/2″ elastic (two rows), I had to gather it a lot before […]

Quick shorts

I rediscovered these shorts — or at least the pieces — a few weeks ago. My daughter is 9 and after wearing her last pair into holes, I knew I should get these made up. The cutting was a bit crooked but at the end of the day, the $3/metre remnant fabric from 5 years […]

Q1 accomplishments (finish-a-long)

Three! Yes indeed, three sparkling finishes! Well, better than one, but certainly not as I might have hoped. My original list is at this post, but here is a quick summary: 1. Summer Sampler — I worked on some of the joiner blocks and started the border 2. Glamp stitchalot – no progress 3. On […]

Q4 in the Finish a long (2018)

I made a lot of items this past quarter, just not on my list! I want to participate in the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt starting late November, so I know I won’t get much else done during those weeks. So I might as well be somewhat realistic. Priority 1, Spooky Jack. Basted, needs quilting. Would […]

Easy peasy

To write this post, not to get things finished! Beacause I only finished one item on my list last quarter. I’ve got a few items started which I will add for this quarter. Halloween QST quilt (now named Spooky Jack) — basted, needs quilting Beach Ball baby quilts — I’m planning to make two smallish […]

Quilting hugs and kisses

Welcome to TGIFF and a finish for me that has been a long time coming. The Tic Tac Toe blocks were made by my bee-mates in the 2015 version of the Canadians Quilt Bee, from this pattern by Blossom Heart Quilts. I continued my free motion quilting practice following along the #freemotionchallenge by Angela Walters. […]

And a recycled set

Of goals for Q2 in the Finish a Long. Well, that’s not new for me. And as usual, I try to make these goals something that has been hanging around, not the seductive new project which has tempted me. Which means, that almost all of these goals are recycled from last quarter. Tic Tac Toe […]

Aim High

Yeehah! Time to link up my ambitions for finishes in Q1 of 2018. When I filled out the projects page in my new Quilters Planner, I realized I had started 4 quilts in 2018 and finished 4, so that is not a good prediction of being able to reduce the backlog. So here is my […]
