I posted my first Finish Along list in April 2015 when it was still a “big thing” and hosted on blogland. But even though it switched to @finishalong on Instagram, I never looked back. I still post my WIP list here on the blog and in a short version on IG. For me it is a very necessary and thus awesome tool – to keep track, to stay motivated… to hopefully, finally reduce the – for me overwhelming – number of WIPs… Sometimes there are also prizes involved – though that is just a nice bonus :)
What I accomplished last quarter
First finish was Little Kingdom. This oversized baby quilt is for the second daugther of my dear friend. I really enjoyed upgrading the little kingdom to a slightly bigger one with two extra villages and some fuzzy-cut inhabitants. And the trip to the Baltic Sea for the photoshoot is one of my favorite days from this summer!
PS: The quilt for her first daughter was “Precious” aka Gemstone Tumbler :)
Next up was my “Jungle Tiles” quilt.
I made this second version of the Modern Tiles pattern for the Sew Along. And I am very much in love with the confetti layout and the extra circles in the border!
Quilt Buzz Bingo is always a fun community activity and so I couldn’t resist jumping in for version 2021. This quilt was not on the FAL list but was started and finished within the quarter ;)
Inspired by the main red butterfly fabric this color combination was a bit out of my comfort zone but I am happy with the finish.
All my current projects
Of course I had hoped to finish more WIPs, but three is a pretty good amount in my book. And as I am still at the magic number of twelve projects… I am a happy quilter ;)
I hope that whatever your goal was, that you reached it and are happy with your sewing. All the best for the next quarter and all your Christmas sewing.
