2015 Finish-Along ~ First 4th Quarter Finish

Check off one project on this quarter's list!  I realize it's a small one, but it was my first hand-quilted project so it took me a little longer.  :)

The pattern for this quilt is from the book Fat-Quarter Quilting by Lori Smith (which is a great book full of 16" x 20" small quilt patterns).  Fabrics are scraps left over from my Flag Quilt.

Linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social and Kelly for NTT!

WIP Wednesday ~ a few things

I can't believe it's been almost 6 weeks since I've posted anything.  I have been working on stuff, mind you, but haven't really taken any post-worthy pics.  (I think one of the reasons I haven't posted more is the crappy photos my phone takes ~ sorry about that!)  Thought I'd post some today anyway - photo-worthy or not!

I started hand-quilting my Medallion Star mini-quilt.  I haven't really warmed up to hand-quilting ~ my fingers and joints don't seem to react kindly after stitching just a few rows ~ so I don't think it will be something I'll be doing much of.  I will say, however, that with time my stitches have become a little teeny more even, so that's a plus.  


The Day Break blocks are coming along ~ 10 finished (one still needs its sashing).  Love this pattern by Julie Hermann @ Jay Bird Quilts!  I'm using the Simply Colorful collection by V & Co with Architextures in black by Carolyn Friedlander as the background.

I've made a lot of progress on my Log Cabin Sparkles quilt!  Top is done and I just need to piece a back together so I can get to the quilting ~ happy dance!  I love the way it's come together and Kate Spain's Horizon collection really makes this one.

All three of these projects are on my Finish-Along list ~ so that's a good thing!!
