This weeks’s goal was to finish cutting all the neutral fabric and to piece 5 large and 9 small blocks. Goal achieved. If my math is correct, I have cut 1317 pieces of fabric to make a lap size quilt. Yikes!

I’ve been working on Leftovers VI since the summer. I finally finished all the blocks in September so now I just have to come up with a design using my 25 blocks. I need a boot in the fanny to get it finished by year end so it is my December goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
I have my second FAL for the 3rd quarter (this is my original list). It is my little black dress lap quilt. It was a gift for someone that I have worked with for a long time. Unfortunately I was so rushed to get it to her before she went on vacation that I forgot to take pictures of the finished quilt. Here is what it looked like before I had the final borders on:
The recipient was kind enough to share a few pictures.

I’ve also managed to make a few dozen log cabin blocks for “Leftovers V”. This block has been on my bucket list for a while now. Log cabins can be used to make so many interesting designs. I like the way the blocks are coming together and I hope to the have the quilt top finished by the end of the month. Still mulling around ideas on how I want to quilt it.

It’s time to post my wish list for the 3rd quarter of the 2015 Finish-a-long hosted by Adrianne at On the Windy Side. I have 3 in progress projects that I would like to finish.
First is my little black dress quilt. It was on my 2nd quarter list and also on the May and June ALYoF list but still hasn’t been completed. I have most of the FMQ done and then I have to add a label and bind it. It is a gift for someone and it has to be finished by the end of August so hopefully I will make my goal this time.
Second is a lap quilt that is in the planning and piecing stages. I had a couple of charm square bundles of Scrumptious from Bonnie and Camille. I am making up the design as I go along so I don’t really know how the final quilt top will look.
And last but not least I have started Leftovers V. I am using strips and small rectangles left over from my Blue Odyssey Quilt. I’m also planning on incorporating leftover blocks from Blue Odyssey and Leftovers III somewhere in the quilt.
