2015 Finish-Along ~ 4th Quarter Results

Hard to believe it's the end of another year ~ I managed to finish 10 quilting projects this year and, for me, that's a good thing!  Here are my results for the 4th Quarter of the 2015 Finish-Along.  (See my original post here.)

1 - Star Light Star Bright Quilt.  Another quilt-along that I lagged way behind on ~ I have 4 blocks done and hope to make at least some progress this quarter.  NO PROGRESS.


2 - Diamond District.  I'm still on six blocks ~ hopefully a few more blocks by the end of the year!  NO PROGRESS.

3 - Log Cabin Sparkles quilt.   FINISHED!  Blogged here.

New this quarter:

4 - Day Break Quilt.  Top is finished ~ will definitely finish it next quarter!

5 - Medallion Star Mini Quilt.    FINISHED!  Blogged here.

That makes 2 (almost 3) finishes for the last quarter of 2015.  Looking forward to next year (I really need to make some progress on those first two on my list) ~ Thanks, Adrianne, for helping us push ourselves along this year!

Finish #2 for this quarter

I'm happy to say that I finished Log Cabin Sparkles - and I actually got some outside shots for a change!

I took the easy way out (as usual) and did a simple cross-hatch on the diagonal.  I'm still happy with the result ~ I like simple.

I backed it in the Horizon Leaves fabric in blue with a circle of Grunge HSTs.  I love that this book includes a pattern for a pieced back for each of the quilts.

Quilt stats:
Pattern: Log Cabin Sparkles from the book New Ways with Jelly Rolls: 12 Reversible Modern Jelly Roll Quilts by Pat and Nicky Lintott.
Size:  72 in. x 72 in.
Fabrics:  Horizon by Kate Spain, Grunge Basics Ocean by Basic Grey, Kona Snow
Thread:  Aurifil 50 wt. 2021

Happy that I can check off my second (and probably last) finish on my 4th quarter list for the 2015 Finish-Along!
