Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Whew. The past week went by in a blur and I'm so glad to have a holiday weekend to do some catching up and relaxing. It has also given me a chance to take stock and begin planning for some end of the year finishes. I decided to be bold this quarter, so there's quite a list. ;o)
Are you ready?
Trying to decide if I'll make one large quilt or two small ones. Still have a couple more blocks to sew, either way I decide to go...
Blocks are made, but due to the varying sizes of those blocks I need to fashion a grid onto my design wall to help me proceed with the layout I envision.
This project has been on my list for each quarter of 2013. I'm making mini blocks and have sewn half of the total blocks I will need to make this into a king-size quilt. The strategy to get more blocks made is to use these as "leaders and enders" to help guarantee a finish by the end of the year. Fingers crossed that this will work!
I want to add some sort of border and I may add a few more touches of machine embroidery to finish this project that I dreamed up. Can't believe it's been unfinished for a couple of years now.
I need to make as many blocks as possible using the remaining lime fabric I have on hand - so not sure what size this will end up being. Just want it done!
Since sewing these initial 4 blocks back in January, I have avoided continuing this quilt. Still not sure I like what I have going, but I have been told it will look better the more blocks I make. Time to see if that's true. ;o)
Yet another project that has been put aside for quite some time. I have removed some parts as I wasn't happy with what I had and know I just need to stop dithering and finish.
8. Snowman Faces.
I whipped up these cute fellows a year ago and then stalled out on a finish for them. I've begun sketching projects using them and would love to have them for decorating for the holiday season this year.
9. Nordic blocks.
I'm finally sewing up blocks I've had designed for about a year. I'm still playing with project ideas for them and would love to have them ready to share as a PDF pattern this quarter.
Yes, this WIP has been on a couple of FAL lists, too. I've pieced more scraps together for this and still need to work out what I'm making with this scrappy yardage.
The time has come for this to be a finish!
Okay, before I overwhelm myself any further, I'm going to stop at 10. I have plans to do some other sewing along with this list - I have another list for clothes I hope to finish, a list with the patterns I'm writing and gifts to make list as well. Yes, I think that should keep me busy this quarter. ;o)
Time to link up my list with Leanne and all the other lovely ladies participating in the homestretch of this year's Finish-A-Long. Best of luck to each of you!
