No. 3 of my Finish Along List for Q2 is finished!
These two Four Patch baby quilts were my oldest project – from at least 2015. I started them early on in my quilting adventure – actually I planned an Indian Orange Peel quilt. Unfortunately this design by Karen Stone – as beautiful as it is – does not lend itself as one of your first projects. Curves, FPP… need I say more? So the project went into a box and only got pulled out again in 2018 for the guest post “Bye, bye UFO” on Modern Cologne Quilters.
To get this UFO to the finish line I decided to cut up the huge four patches into smaller versions and extra squares. Then I used those extras to make more four patch units.
I added funky sashing and quilted them with a walking foot design. The binding is scrappy “rainbow” from what I had left of the solids used in each quilt.
For their photography session I went to the Museumshafen Harburg. It was a very hot, sunny day and the view over the water/canals with a nice breeze was great :)
The port is out of service but was once used for transshipment, including container handling. They had their own railway connection and all the old equipment made for some fun pictures backdrops.
Walked around a bit and I saw a few older boats but it was hard to get good shots there. But there are some beautiful ones on the website of the Museumshafen Harburg IG page.
So this is my last minute finish before the quarterly deadline.
Are you happy with your progress in the second quarter? I made lots of progress – finished three projects and made some progress on others. But I also started a new one and am planning two others ;) More on that in the next blog post with the new FAL (Finish Along) – WIP list.

These two quilts turned out so pretty. It was nice that you were able to turn a different design(that you had in mind) into these cuties!

Beautiful quilts. Love the “new” look of them. And, what a great backdrop for your pictures.
