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 and appears to have died out, 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…
What I accomplished last quarter
First finish was “Criss-Cross” our group Community Outreach Quilt for QuiltCon 2022 in Phoenix, Arizona.
And I finally finished “Rainbow Fragments” my 12-color-gradient quilt from the “All the Diagonals” pattern.
This one was accompanied with a big pattern upgrade. You can find more information including lots of fun mock-ups in this blogpost.
I also started fabric tracking and wrote a blog post about my process including excel files for download if you want to join me with your own tracking.
All my current projects
No. 9 – Patchwork Hearts
Just for fun because of the sew along. Top and backing finished.
No. 11 – Bright Side I+II
One top done, one stack of blocks finished. Will most likely donate as tops… so I am counting this as one.
No. 12 – Pink Speckled
From pink-yellow speckled scraps from QuiltCon2020 in Phoenix. Top is done.
And I am back up to the magic number of twelve. That is what happens when you start new projects left, right and center just for the FUN of sewing. Though if I do donate the Bride Side tops as planned, they will shortly drop off the WIP list ;)
I hope that whatever your goal was, that you reached it and are happy with your sewing. All the best for the next quarter.
It’s an endless cycle, right? BEAUTIFUL projects thought! Too bad the FAL disappeared…kinda with no notice – ? OH well. Good luck making progress on your list!
