Four (!) finishes in Q2 2019 from my Finish Along List for Q2.
Wallet “Grete” No. 2
This was my first finish: A long overdue wallet for my colleague. You can read more about it in this post.
And a very colorful baby quilt as the second finish. This project was almost on time :) All the details and many more pictures of this color goodness are in this post.
And here is a finish for myself. The second quilt I am keeping. Here is the link to the post.
Greyscale – Meadowland No. 2
I am adding quilts to my own pile! As always the details in the post.
And then I had two small in between finishes | And see what also happened :)
Fish Drawstring Bag
No individual blog post – “only” posted on Instagram.
QuiltCon 2020 – Austin, TX here I come.1 My adrenaline was pumping as I registered for classes as quickly as my fingers would type on the keyboard!2 Here’s my happy dance for being able to register for all the classes I wanted this morning!3
Build out of three quotes: This would have been the perfect caption
Did I finish as much as I had hoped for. Definitely not but that was to be expected. I always overestimate what I can get accomplished, especially when I count in vacation time :)
But I am on a good track and very happy about it. See for yourself:
All my current WIPs
No. 1 – Ocean Waves
Started big stitch hand binding because all attempts to machine bind it failed. Totally unusual and very new for me but so far I like it!
No. 4 – “Good Wishes”
I started some block plannig but then got distracted again. But at least some small progress.
No. 8 – Bee Quilt 2019
Started working on a layout. You can see the start here. Now considering on point :)
gift for my IT guy :)
“order” from my Mom
I am tempted to write my own pattern and host a Sew Along.
Will keep you up to date :)
My Goal for 2019 is to get my WIP list down to 3-6 projects.
I am still not managing two finishes a month but I am getting the number down! This quarter I finished four and added “only” two. So far from originally 15 down to 12. Yeahh!
No. (1) Ocean Waves, (3) Whirly Girl are relatively close to a finish. And (10) the wallet is soooo long overdue. Also I think (11) the bag will be a not too complicated project. So I am hoping for lots of finishes in Q3. With three in Q1 and four Q2 it should be five now, right?
