2016 Finish-Along ~ 4th Quarter Results

Last Quarter of 2016!  I have to say I love being a part of the Finish-A-Long.  I jumped in for the last quarter of 2013 and haven't stopped since.  It's just so motivating ~ so a big "Thank You" for those who host and cheer us on every year!

Here's my 4th Quarter list and the results:

I'm working with the Seasonal Silhouettes pattern book by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts and I've decided that each block is going to be its own mini-quilt so that I have something to hang each month.  Here's my basket of fabrics for the next 3 months.  (BTW, this is the Oslo Craft Bag ~ a free pattern by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness)

1 - Seasonal Silhouettes - November.  This one is fused, but I didn't finish it.  Here's the pattern.

2 - Seasonal Silhouettes - December.  Still not started yet, but here's the pattern.  NO PROGRESS.

3 - Seasonal Silhouettes - January. I started this one when I first got the book and finished fusing the applique pieces.  Love the skates!  NO PROGRESS.


4 - Downtown Cabins - from the book Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting.  FINISHED!  Blogged here.

5 - Boxing Match.  Pattern by Nancy Mahoney for Quiltmaker (Sept/Oct 2015).  Quilt for my grandson in Detroit Tigers colors.  FINISHED!  Blogged here.

6 - Nonchalant.   Another pattern from the book Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting.  Quilt for another grandson in U of M colors.  FINISHED!  Blogged here.

Oldies but goodies (i.e. not much hope here):

7 - Star Light Star Bright Quilt.  Another quilt-along that I lagged way behind on ~ still have only 4 blocks finished.  NO PROGRESS.

8 - 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.

That makes 3 finishes out of 8 projects on my list this quarter ~ 3 big lap quilts for my grandkids, so I'm happy!!
