2017 FAL Q1 FINISHES

Out of the list of planned Q1 Finishes, I highlighted the ones I completed. It was not as much as I hoped, but with my surgery slowing me down and completing a huge project such as the Splendid Sampler, I really am happy. I plan to increase the production next quarter. I already almost have two more completed.

2017 Q1 Finish-A-Long, Finish #6

This was a big one, but I did it! First quilt for my own bed after 11 years of quilting. I am not a fan of doing king sized I decided, but I am a fan of how they look in the end.

Splendid Sampler is complete!! This is made with all Marcia Derse fabrics except two small pieces.

I am so happy to have the binding done. I used a new method by machine and love it. I’ll talk about that another day.

Pancho glad I’m done too.

Aurifil Top, 2017 Q1 Finish-A-Long Finish #4 

This is my Aurifil 2016 designer of the quilt blocks. I finished sashing it, but I feel it needs another border. What do you guys think? Should it be one solid border or another pieced border?

I also finished another of my Q1 Finish-A-Long projects. 

This is Chic Chevron. The fabric is by Moda called Chic Neutrals by Amy Ellis.  I started it in February of 2016 and finished it today. It was supposed to be a quilt donated to the Michigan Environment Health Association, but they couldn’t get enough help so they couldn’t accept it. Therefore now it is mine.

2017 Q1 FAL #1 Beth’s Wedding Quilt

I have finished my first quilt for my 2017 Q1 Finish-A-Long 🙂

Here is Beth’s Wedding quilt. I started it at her wedding in 2013. It has almost been 4 years, but I got it done! My new room is so motivational and I’ve been accomplishing so much. I think most of it is I don’t want all this clutter in my beautiful room.

If you are reading this, sorry sis for taking so long.

Here is a sneak peek on my next one. It is a gift so I can’t show it, yet.

Yep, the boring back. I was given this one to do a right before Christmas of 2015. It will be nice to have it finished too. Also, yes there are both from today. I’m telling you; this basement is inspirational.
