2017 Finish-A-Long: 4th Quarter List

Quarter #4 is here!  Last quarter I finished 3 out of 3 ~ really happy with that!  I don't think I've ever finished all the projects on any list, but the list was pretty short because I knew we were going to be out of town for a long time.  Here's my list for the 4th quarter:

1 - Seasonal Silhouettes - December.  Still working with the Seasonal Silhouettes pattern book by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.  I love this month's pattern ~ haven't started it yet, but I have all the fabrics and I'm hoping to get it up by Christmas.

2 - Seasonal Silhouettes - January.  I have this one fused ~ hoping to finish it this quarter ~ it's one of my favorites!

3 - Christmas stockings for the twins.  Since we have new grandkids in our family, they desperately need stockings!  I happened to have a pattern by Sex Lux Fabrics for a Scrappy Spiral Stocking.  I don't think I'll do the spiral, but I love the size of this stocking, so I'll use it as a template.  I haven't decided whether to use this layer cake, or look for some brand new fabrics.

4 - C'est La Vie.  I used this pattern by Lella Boutique (from Fat Quarter Shop's November Sew Sampler Box) for a Christmas Mini.  I've been wanting to make this into a lap-size quilt ~ just like the pattern shows, I'm going to use charm packs of Olive's Flower Garden (just because I LOVE these fabrics!).  

5 - Freshly Picked Table Runner.  I love Bonnie and Camille fabrics, so when I opened up my September 2017 Sew Sampler Box I decided that I HAVE to make this gorgeous table runner!  Can't wait to dig into that Good Life charm pack!!

OK ~ I think I'm going to stop right here.  Five seems like a good number (actually 6 because I'm making 2 stockings) and with Christmas coming up ~ well, you know how that usually goes!  Good luck everyone!
