2013 FAL – 2nd Quarter

It is time to pick the unfinished quilts (UFOs) that I am going to commit to completing in the second quarter of this year’s quilt finish-a-long (FAL).  I have 4 projects.  I am going to focus on free motion quilting (FMQ) and finish a bunch of tops that have been lying around because I didn’t have any experience/confidence.  I still don’t have a whole lot of experience but I am ready to challenge myself.

Kimono

#1 – Kimono:  I made this wall hanging 2-3 years ago and it has been hanging in my closet since then. It needs to be basted, quilted and bound.

DragonFly

#2 – Dragon Fly:  Here is another wall hanging. It has some quilting but it needs to be finished. I also want to give it a scalloped border (I’ve never tried a fancy border) and bind it.

#3 – Sue’s Summer Breeze: This is a triple Irish chain quilt that I am making for my friend Sue.  I can’t show you a picture of it because she follows my blog and I don’t want her to see it before it is finished.

HydrangeaBlock

#4 Once again I am going to try and finish my Blue Hydrangea quilt that I had planned to finish in the 1st quarter.  I have to remove the grid stitching in the 16 flower blocks and then replace them with some free motion quilting that I hope will do a better job of showcasing the floral prints.  I am still waiting for the custom ordered silk thread to arrive so that I can start the FMQ.

    you little **^^%$$#$%$……..yes, I am one of your “Following”…..I am not too crazy about Kimona but I do however think that Dragon Fly is really nice…Dragon Flies are my signature here around my garden “stuff” for outside so I love anything Dragon Fly…it’s really cute…I don’t know why you did not finish Hydrangea, it’s really pretty….Guess you just enjoy the more geometric patterning……
