Finish Along 2014 – Quarter 3

July 8, 2014

So in Quarter 2 I planned ten projects and completed six. Not bad going. Three have been carried over and one has been discarded for now.

This quarter I am determined to start making some clothes for me. I bought Tilly Walnes – Love at First Stitch and it looks great for getting making clothes so I just need to get started. I have purchased the fabrics for four different projects for me I just need to get on with it.

1) The Just Big Enough Blanket {carried over}

This is Mr C’s Christmas present that I STILL haven’t finished. I am just not in a crochet mood at the moment. It is too warm. Looks like this is more likely to be Christmas 2014’s present.

2)Hexagon cushions {carried over}

Finish the hexagon cushions for my room. I did manage to machine quilt the fronts and pick the fabrics for the backs. I bought the zips. I just need to cut the backs and sew them up. A couple hours work at most but it is one of those things that just keeps getting put off. I might still add some hand-quilting but I am not sure.

Um this one is still hanging around and I don’t know why. Weird.

3) Washi Dress for me {carried over}

Still not actually started this. Just need to make a muslin of the bodice and then I will get going I think. First step is to print and put the pattern together.

4) Coco for me

I have the pattern and the fabric. I just need the balls to try sewing with a knit fabric. Also, the weather is a bit warm for this at the moment so maybe this will be towards the end of the quarter.

5) Wiksten Tank

I have the pattern and the fabric. I have even made one of of muslin to test the fit. I just need the balls to do the binding on the armholes and neck. That bit scares me. I also think that I need a proper hem gauge.

6) Competition Mini Quilt

What this will actually be is linked to the winner’s preferences but I am excited to make something for someone new.

7) Sample Swap goodies for Fat Quarterly Retreat.

I am planning needle books and have everything set aside to make them. Making it up as I go along though.

8) Embroidered hoop

This is an overdue birthday present that I have been working on. It is pretty labour intensive and I want to have it done by the end of July.

9) Triangle City

I finished my EPP project started in Katie’s class at FQR last year. I need to applique it to a backing and make it into a cushion as a present for someone.

10) Tiles Mini Quilt

Started and never finished months ago, I want to get started with this again. I think the fact I am not great at matching points (it is made from quarter square triangles) is putting me off but I need to accept that it won’t be perfect but it will be brilliant.
