2016 Finish-Along ~ 1st Quarter Results

Where in the heck has all the time gone??  Seems like I've been busy, but apparently with projects other than the ones on my list. Anyway, here are my results for the 1st Quarter of the 2016 Finish-Along.  (See my original post here.)

1 - Elephant Parade.  Made some progress on this one ~ at least I finished all the blocks and they're all sewn together in rows.  Time to start adding the sashing and border.  

2 - Seasonal Silhouettes.  I finished fusing the first three blocks and I love the way they're turning out so far.  Like I said, it's a great long-term project.  Maybe I should focus on working on the blocks for the months coming up so that I can actually hang each one during the month it was intended for!




3 - Day Break Quilt.  Top is finished ~ will definitely finish it this quarter!  (I lied - NO PROGRESS!)

4 - 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

5 - Diamond District.  I'm still on six blocks ~ hopefully a few more blocks by the end of the year!  (This makes a good leaders-enders project ~ I really should take advantage of that!)  NO PROGRESS

This is the first quarter since I started the Finish-Alongs that I had ZERO finishes.  I had such high hopes for this quarter ~ I guess I'll set my sights on the 2nd quarter.  After all, the only pressure I'm under is my own, right?  :)
