Finish Along: First Quarter 2013

I am ready for a fresh start, a fresh list of goals for 2013.  It seems that every focus I had was to finish projects for Christmas, so I am somewhat starting with a clean slate.  What could be better than dream of a few finishes, then?  Here's hoping I can finish the following:

1. A diaper bag for my SIL and brother.  I was hoping to have this in time for their baby shower, but just totally failed.  I did make the travel changing mat that is to go in the bag, but not the bag itself.  I am using this pattern:


with fabric from Sweetest Thing.  Should be cute!


2. Mouthy Stitches Tote V2.

Sadly, version 1 was lost in the post between Ireland and Austria   I'm off to make version 2.  I have the lining cut and stitched and an idea for the outer panel, so now I just have to get sewing! 


3. Chaos V2.

I am in love with version 1 and would like to have one for myself.  I have the pieced scraps all ready to go, so I just have to get cutting and piecing blocks. I might use a color instead of the Kona White in each block.  We'll see!  I would love to have this finished off this winter...to use it before spring hits!



4. Electronica.

These blocks were made as part of a bee ages and ages ago.  I just haven't finished them off and made a top.  It's time to pull them out, have a play and finish off this project.  I can't wait to visit this old friend.



5. I Spy Quilt for Donation

Our local quilting guild is gathering children's quilts for donation to the local hospital by May 2013.  I have an I Spy charm top nearly finished. It just needs boarders, then layering and quilting.  I would love to finish off this cutie.

6. Two Frame Purses.

I'd like to use Emily's tutorial to finish these off.  It will take no time at all...I just keep picking the (half made) purses up, moving them and setting them down again.  It's time to finish them off.

Thanks so much, Leanne, for hosting this FAL.  You'll keep me going for the next 3 months!

These are all great projects and I look forward to watching you finish them. I am hard pressed to pick a favourite but I do love those electronica blocks. I hope the FAL helps you to get them done.
