Leftovers pillow finish 

A visit to our shared ownership cottage this past weekend allowed a little handwork so I was able to finish the binding on my Grand Illusion Leftovers pillow.   This was a goal on my Q1 Finish-a-long list, as well as a goal this week with To-do Tuesday. Along with that, I progressed the assembly […]

Roundabout – Q1 in the Finish A Long

Hurray for another round of the global finish a long!  I’ve been working away on my longstanding works in progress and have decided on goals for this quarter.   Some are recycled from last quarter as usual. Starlight, Stardark quilt Quilting is in progress, this is achievable. And a bonus shot of some of the […]

Tumbler Quilting Excitement

Exciting enough that once I added watching “The Crown” to chatting with others via #saturdaynightcraftalong on instagram, it was practically done. I mentioned previously that I used fleece to back it with. Well, I learned some very important things. 1. Although the thrifted fleece throw with the hockey sticks (how Canadian!) was cheap ($2.00), it […]

Goals for Q4 in the Finish-A-Long

Well, I seem to be continuing my trend of finishing one quilt per quarter. However at the rate which I start new quilts, that pace really needs to pick up.  So I’m going to join the #ridiculouslylongFALlist club with Helen (Archie the Wonder Dog) and Leeanne and Jess and everyone else! So here goes, my […]

Yuma pillow finish (TGIFF)

Finally it was time to finish this pillow off (see tutorial for adjusting the pattern here).   And it was a good choice to practice free motion quilting on my new Pfaff before i finished my MQG challenge quilt. Once it was quilted, it got set aside again waiting for a back and a pillow […]

Goals for Quarter 3 in the Finish-a-long

Hi there! How did you do last quarter? I excel at starting new projects! Oops, not the goal of this particular party. So with 2 out of 5 projects finished last quarter, this quarter I think I shall choose about 5 again. Christmas Grand Illusion quilt carries over from Q2, just needs quilting Sugar block […]

A new Summer purse (2016 FAL)

Finish number two for the 2016 quarter 2 finish-a-long is here!  Woohoo!  OK, maybe that’s a little too much excitement but it is nice to have a finish that’s quick, for one, and something that I started in 2015.  Not to mention actually finishing my summer purse while it’s still summer is an accomplishment. This […]

Q2 2016 in the Finish A Long

Hmm, what longstanding projects shall i choose this quarter?  Leanne has shown us a large selection of projects,  and I think I’ll do much the same. Grand Illusion mystery quilt, I did get it basted last month. Summer purse. Oops, no progress last quarter. As you can see, I even have the interfacing cut out, […]

Squeak

I have to say this seems like my best ever quarter in the finish-a-long. I finished the Refracted Quilt, Cargo Duffle Bag, and Windows Sweater. Then, to squeak in at the last minute, this shining star pillow (goal-setting post here). This pillow started with 8 Kona azure triangles that I cut for another project and […]

Nothing but net

You know it, that feeling of satisfaction and victory, of getting the basketball in the net right at the buzzer. And what else but another finish for my 2016-Q1 Finish-A-Long! (goal setting link here). I started this Cargo Duffle bag (free pattern by Anna Graham/Noodlehead) over a year ago, by cutting out all the pieces, […]
