Third Quarter Finishes

Back on July 14 I joined Leanne's (SheCanQuilt) Finish-a-Long. I managed to complete three of the four I pledged to do. I was feeling sort of bad about not completing my pledge, but then found others didn't do all theirs either. It's comforting to be in good company. Here's my original 3Q Finish-a-Long list.

First to be completed was "Bloom." I ended up entering it in the Jacksonville (Florida) quilt show (QuiltFest) where it earned an honorable mention ribbon. Leanne links her finishes to a "Ta Da post," so here's my Ta Da post about Bloom.

Finish number two was "Happy Hexagons," a baby quilt for a great niece born in August. Ta Da post.

Third and last for this quarter was this big (85" X 98") finish: "Roll Roll Cotton Boll" that was given as a wedding gift a couple weeks ago. Ta Da Post.

I will say I did get a lot of free motion quilting done! Miles of thread used, I'm sure.

Here's where to go to see all the other finishes - hundreds of them! Linda

  2. Three out of four. You should be patting yourself on the back--or buying fabric.....

  4. Well done you! And I think 3 out of 4 is pretty good. I have yet to finish one item from my list (but I still have to the end of the year, so there's hope). Congratulations to the honorable mention ribbon, although I think your Bloom quilt deserved more than that. Oh well, there's always a next time.

  9. Congratulations on three lovely finishes. I always have to enlarge your pictures so I can see your wonderful quilting. Your know the way I see goals - they are like moving targets. You do your best to reach them and they are always in a state of change as we move into the future. Goals keep us on track, but it's a never ending track.
