I’m so excited to be joining in the 2nd quarter finish-a-long with Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap :) I really REALLY wanted to participate in the 1st quarter but knew there was no chance under the sun that I could add one more deadline to my list of demands. Between speaking and conferences and the clinic, OMG, it was insane! But life has slowed down a bit and I’ve been able to spend some more time with my machine AND just added a newcomer to the sewing studio as well (read all about my crazy extravagance here).
So, without further delay, here are my goals for Q2 of the FAL. If this is the first you’ve heard of it, then you DEFINITELY need to read about it here.
First, I’d like to finish my little table topper that I started last summer. Current state: it’s all sandwiched and the scrappy binding is already made up. I just need to quilt it and bind it, wash it and then we should be good to go!
Next up, my Swoon quilt! I really want to get going on this. In the time Pam at Hip to be a Square has made 2 Swoon QUILTS, I have made 2 Swoon BLOCKS, lol. Here are the 2 that I have completed so far – 2 down, 7 to go!
Finishing Swoon is probably going to be my biggest job this quarter, so I’m going to try and keep the others a little more simple. I would like to finish this wool project (yep, I realize Easter just passed me by…but think how far ahead I’ll be for next year!).
And last but certainly not least, my Charming LoneStar quilt. She’s just been sitting patiently waiting for me to send her off to a longarmer to be quilted but something keeps holding me back. Now that I have Scarlett and her big jumbo hoop, MAYBE I’ll get brave and do the quilting myself! I’ve just been so worried about screwing it up and I just love that quilt so much…but hey, what the heck right. Take a breath and jump right in
