It is that time again to make a commitment to the final quarter of the 2014 finish-a-long hosted by Katy at the Littlest Thistle. I have one left over from last quarter that didn’t get finished and I am adding four more to my list for a total of five.
Leftovers III is on my frame and about 3/4 quilted so I just have to finish it off and bind it.
Leftovers IV is going to be a HST string quilt. I’ve got about 80% of the blocks made so I have to finish the last few, find the perfect layout, sew them together, quilt and then bind.
Yesterday I volunteered to be a pattern tester for Adrianne at On the Windy Side. I’ve got roughly 15 days to have a finished queen size quilt top. Although it is a tight timeline….I’m looking forward to the new experience. I am not allowed to share the pattern with you just yet because it is top secret until it is published and for sale at the end of the month. I’m primarily using Zen Chic’s Barcelona fabric along with some Grunge fabric from Basic Grey. When the quilt is completed I am going to donate it to http://littlewarriors.ca/events/quilts-for-the-be-brave-ranch/. Each child is given a quilt when they arrive at camp and when they leave they get to take it home with them.
At the 2nd quarter FAL wrap up party I was lucky enough to win a $25 gift card from Becca at Sew me a Song. I used it to help purchase this 1/2 yard fabric bundle. I think these fabrics, plus a few more from my stash, will make a cute quilt for a little girl. I am using the same pattern as above and it will be donated to the Be Brave Ranch too.
And my final project is a commission. A queen size quilt for my massage therapist. She gave me this pillow sham to use as my inspiration and left the rest up to me. No pressure there. I can’t say much more or show the fabrics that I’m using because she looks at my blog and I want this to be a complete surprise….hopefully a good one?!?!?!
Yikes….this is a big list.
