2016 Finish-A-Long Q2
Okay, so Q1 was a bit of a disaster for me in terms of getting shit done. I’m not saying it was a quilting failure, because a lot happened to be excited about. My travel schedule just reeked havoc on ticking finishes off the list. I was a big fat 0 for 7. Yeah. Um, just put my name at the bottom of the list. But this is a new quarter, and I’m starting fresh, jazz hands blazing! I’m going to even do one better and put an extra item on my list. Screw lucky 7, let’s take it up a notch to my favourite number: 8!
Some of you have been asking, “What’s going on with the Gender Kisses quilts!?” Truth be told, I was working on this business last night, and it is nearly finished. The quilting is in progress, binding is made, and it will definitely be revealed this quarter!
I’ve mentioned this last week, in my welcome back post, but to make it official: The Divas Alphabet pattern will be released this quarter or you can use it to call me a liar.
So will the Don’t Be a Dick pattern. There are so many politicians to make this for in Australia, trust me, it’s a priority!
Mr. Sparkles’s quilt was destined to be done in time for our Australian winter, (which let’s face it, is going to be a big ask), but just in case I get a burst of manic energy, let’s leave it right where it is.
One of the things I took away from QuiltCon was that not every quilt needs to be ginormous. Small quilts are more than okay, and actually can be beautiful, even if they do only cover one of my legs. So I think that’s what’s going to happen with these lanterns: just get ‘er done.
I contemplated the same rationale here, just a small reversible number, day to night sort of ensemble. But I really, really, realllllly, want this to be a medallion quilt, with at least a few borders. Contemplation will probably keep it from crossing the finish line, but I do have the fabric pull set aside regardless!
I actually had my Tidal Pool quilt finished last quarter but didn’t get around to posting about it. Well, you can bet that’s gonna change, because it’s ready for its Glamour Shots photo shoot! I just need a fur-lined popped collar, lots of rouge, soft lighting, and an inappropriate pose for my age, and we’ll be good to go!
Looks like I’m already a winner with my You Learn quilt, as I posted its finish last week! I’m already 1 for 8, which is already 12.5%, light years beyond last quarter’s 0%!
So there we go, eight projects that I should only be working on over the next quarter. I’m sure (like most of us) I’ll find a way to add in another eight unscheduled must do immediately style projects that will slow these down. Wish me luck, and I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store as well! Make sure you go to any of the blogs below to link up your own FAL lists!
