Quarter 1 FAL Round Up

Wow!  Quarter 1 came and went so quickly!  Here we are in early April and it's time to link up our finishes with Miss Leanne's linky party. All quarter long I was thinking I was right on track, but it turns out I wasn't!  Surprise surprise.  Three out of six were finished.  Here's how it breaks down:

DONE: A diaper bag for my new niece Nieve.  It was even received in Boston and is in use in Mommy And Me groups.  Hurray!



NOT DONE: Mouthy Stitches Tote V2.  
I have to say I'm quite happy to not finish this.  As it turns out the original bag was returned to me, then sent again to Australia and it's now in its happy home.  Woo hoo!  I did start making a new bag for Kirsten, that I guess is now for me.  You might see that in the Q2 list :)

Stolen from Kirsten's blog.  It looks happy down under, doesn't it?
NOT DONE: Chaos V2.  I did not even touch this, even tough I saw it laying in my sewing room each and every day of the quarter.

NOT DONE: Electronica.  I did finish the top (woo hoo!), but it's not layered and quilted.  The back needs to be put together and that's kind of putting me off.  Again, this might re-appear in Q2.




DONE: I Spy Quilt for donation.  I like this little finish.  Quick and easy and totally rewarding.





DONE: Two Frame PursesWhew!  Just squeezing in this finish at the last minute.  I'm so pleased with how these turned out that I'd love to make another.




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

Love those purses! A quick question- were they sew-in or glue in frames?

Lynz said...

Isn't it funny how if a back needs pieced we often stall? I hate that bit. Almost as much as basting! But Electronica is so cool it's a shame not to finish her properly. You did good this quarter though!

Well done!

Leanne said...

Excellent finishes, and lovely projects for Q2. I wonder if we all need to approach quilt back differently some how, as I have the same issue often.

Deborah said...
