Q2’17 FAL – Wrap Up

I had fewer projects on my list this quarter, but a few pretty big ones a long time in the making.  Also a few that would require me to feel pretty confident with my still new long arming skills to complete.  I did reasonably well.

Here was this list:

  1. Circa 1934 Squares:  This is the quarter!  I’m doing it!  I have a quilting plan and will get it loaded up in the next week or so.  UPDATE:  DONE!!  Can’t believe it.  I posted about it here.  I think it came out really great.
  2. Red, Black and White Coins:  I finished the quilt top in Q1 and it is ready to quilt.  UPDATE:  DONE!  Man did I have a bunch of problems with this one, but he is done, and I posted about him here.
  3. Green Coins:  This is an older UFO that I recently reworked.  It originally had cream sashing and looked terrible, so I tore out the cream and inserted the green instead.  Much better, and ready to be quilted.  UPDATE:  DONE!!  I posted about it here, and am so happy with how it came out.
  4. Caterpillar Quilt:  Still need to get this quilt top together but it should be quick.  I think I’ll use this quilt top as another Pro-stitcher practice quilt.  UPDATE:  DONE!  I did use this as another Prostitcher practice quilt, and I love it.  I posted about it here.
  5. Sugar Block Club 3.0:  I mostly have a quilting plan ready to go.  I need to piece together a backing and get up the courage to do the quilting. UPDATE:  Top is done, back is done, batting is ready to go.  This will be the next one I load up.
  6. Blueberry Park Drunkard’s Path:  blocks are done – need to put it together and quilt it.  This one just hasn’t been inspiring me, so I need to figure out what I want to do with it.  UPDATE:  No progress 🙁  Still looking for inspiration on this guy.
  7. Splendid Sampler:  The quilt top is all together and it looks great.  I need to piece the back and figure out how I want to quilt it.  UPDATE:  Back is pieced and ready to go.  I’ll probably work on this one after the Sugar Block Club 3.0 quilt.
  8. Bee-utiful Quilt along:  I have 4 more blocks to do before I finish all the sashing and setting to get the top together.  This would be a stretch, but I will make progress.  UPDATE:  I finished all the embroidery blocks and have started piecing the top.  I’ll put this on the list for next quarter.

It was a quarter with some set backs and some good progress.  I had hoped for more progress, but I am happy with what I did get done.  Looking forward to getting the Sugar Block Club and Splendid Sampler quilts done in Q3.
