All of the cool kids are doing it.
I wanted to join in on Rhonda's Finish Along (FAL) last quarter, but there was just too much running through my head/sewing room at the time to add another "to-do" on the ever growing list. Now, this quarter is a different story! I am super excited to join in.
What will I finish this quarter? Well, Rhonda is telling me that to "finish" a quilt it has to be quilted and bound before the quarter is out. I can do that.
1. Stargazing. Stargazing is currently being quilted by the lovely Trudi, but I will have it back in early June. I can happily have it bound and finished before the end of the month, therefore within the quarter. I'd kick myself if I didn't.
2. Cúchulainn. Cúchulainn has been on my to-do list for quite some time. I want to say since September, but that scares me a bit. The appliqué is now finished and the quilting well underway, so this isn't a huge stretch. Anyway, it MUST be finished off in time for the quilt festival. So, I will quilt and bind it this quarter.
3. Beginner's Patchwork Sampler Quilt. This is just a pile of blocks sitting in my sewing room. So, I will have to add the sashing, layer, quilt and bind it. Still, it's a very manageable size so I should be able to finish it off in the next month or so. I am really enjoying this little patch of craziness, so it will be fun to spend more time with it.
4. Electronica. Here is my stretch finish. Electronica. This quilt is being pieced by Sew Bee Blissful as our March block, so the blocks are now arriving at the house. It is going to be a whopper! So, I will have to collect the blocks, finish them off as needed, finish off 2 of the 5 blocks I have to contribute, add sashing, layer, quilt and bind. It might be a big ask, but at least I have all of the materials I need and a quilting plan in mind. We'll see how it goes!
