Finish it Up!

I decided to link up with this finish-along for the final quarter of 2013.  I list all the projects I want to finish by January 1st, 2014 and link them to this blogpost.  Then in January, every project that I've finished from this list,  I can add to the group for an entry for some great prizes.  The prizes are a great incentive, but I know that just making a list and saying that I want to finish these all up is a great way to push myself too!

Anyone is welcome to join, but today Oct. 15, is the last day to enter!

Project #1 - Finish hand quilting this little quilt.  Shouldn't be a problem because it's set up on my quilting frame in the basement.  Maybe I'll get my mom or grandma to come help me and it will get done faster!



Project #2 - Another hand quilting project which is not on the frame, but I'm using it as my carry-along project.  It's taking too long though!  I realized that it's a little too big to cart around comfortably, so I tend to not bring it along with me when driving or waiting, etc.


Project #3  I made this quilt top awhile ago.  I've since decided that I want to make it queen size, so need to add a few more rows of squares around.  Then I think I'm going to finish it by tying pink yarn in the corner of each block.




 Project #4  This shouldn't take too long to quilt and bind, since it's a baby size.  Just one of those that I'm quite unmotivated about, although I know it will be nice once it's done.



 Project #5 - My selvedge quilt needs to be finished.  I'm still deciding if I want to add a border.  I'm thinking of a big bright floral print in a wide border around the outside...



 Project #6 - A scrap quilt top that's been sitting in the cupboard for a while.  I want to use a pink voile on the back and tie it with hot pink yarn.











Project #7 - I've got these four blocks which I really like, but I don't feel like making any more of them.  So I need to sash them somehow and make in to a baby quilt.

So that should be enough to keep me busy till Christmas!  Not to mention all the new projects that are sure to weasel their way in!

  3. So fun to get a peak into your projects, can't wait to see the finished products! And I am so jealous that you get to share quilting with your mother and grandmother, my Mom always used to say that she was allergic to sewing.

  4. Oh, thank you for all that lovely eye candy! Somehow I love the idea of hand-tying some. Even though I love modern quilting, tying seems just right. Nice and organic maybe?

  5. You are awesome to set these goals - I should think if I did that, I would get more projects completed. I REALLY like the salvage quilt and with the planned floral wide boarder - it will be so unexpected and funky - I would live to see that one when it is completed. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I recently did a post with pix on using scrappy, improvised sashing to put "leftover" blocks together. Your 4 blocks that need to be a quilt put me in mind of it. You can see the post on my blog at zippyquilts.wordpress.com

  13. Hi. I’m writing from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop in Toronto.
    I had emailed you last week – I used the address on your blog.

    Do let me know if you received the email – not sure if it landed in your spam folder.

    Looking forward to hearing back.
    Thanks
    Carol

  15. They are so beautiful! I can't wait to see the mini quilt :) The low volume fabrics in the backgrounds and very pretty, and the pops of colors are so fun!
