Finish Along 2016 – Quarter 1

January 14, 2016

Here we go again. Hold onto your hats, it is Finish Along 2016.

FAL 2016

I am starting small this year, sewing time is taken up by college work some of the time, so I have cut back a bit.

  1. Simply Solids Collection Quilt – this is a 9 part block of the month, learning hand applique as I go, so by the end of the year I might have the quilt completely finished! I have done parts 1 & 2 so far.

    By hand My first block is complete for the #simplysolidscollection BOM. First attempt at hand appliqué was actually a lot more enjoyable than I thought it might be. Not as straight as I hoped but not bad for a first go. #simplysolidsmakes #kellyfairysews #kellyfairylearns

  2. Bee Hive Quilting Bee Quilt – top sewn together, I just need to baste, quilt and bind. I might make it for Kate’s birthday and have a go at quilting myself.
  3. Crochet Star Bunting – this is nearly finished, just need to block the stars and string it all together.
  4. Sew Together Bag – I feel that sufficient time has passed for me to attempt another of these. Planning for it to be a present.
  5. Stitch Love hanging decorations. Kate has asked me to make her some stitched decorations.
  6. Lined Drawstring Bag for Kate – to replace a previous one I made that I have re-purposed.

I will not finish the first couple this first quarter but it is nice to have a list of what I plan on having a go at. There will also be college samples and Bee blocks to keep me sewing.
