Q1’18 FAL Wrap Up

I’m both really happy with my Q1’18 finishes, and kind of disappointed.  I finished a few really great quilts that I am really proud of, but I also didn’t get to sew (or blog!) as much as I wanted to this quarter.  I had some changes going on at work that kept me away from my sewing room, but I’m hoping I have that under control so I can get more sewing in during Q2’18.

But for now, this was my list for Q1’18:


  • Bee Quilt – I’m about halfway done quilting this guy and should finish it soon.  UPDATE:  DONE!!  I wrote about it here, and it turned out so great!
  • Alison Glass Quilt – I have a secret project that I need to get done by mid/early March.  I have all of the fabric pulled so I need to get cutting, piecing and quilting to get this done.  UPDATE:  DONE!  This was my Glass Plus quilt for the Modern Plus Sign Quilts Book Blop Hop, which I wrote about here.  I love this quilt!
  • Hazel the Hedgehog – I made a few test blocks and I love how they came out.  I can’t wait to make the rest of the blocks and get the top together.  UPDATE:  DONE!  I wrote about her here, and she got sent off to my new nephew in Hawaii last weekend.
  • Dog Gone Cute Bee Quilt – these are the blocks from my Bee group last year.  They are so cute!  UPDATE:  I finished the last 2 blocks and decided on a sashing plan to finish it.  I also started piecing the sashing and have made good progress.  I really hope to finish this one in Q2’18.
  • Red and Blue Squares – all the little squares are cut out and ready to sew together.  Lots of squares and seams to match up.  UPDATE:  I have this mostly pieced so I should get it loaded and quilted soon.
  • Hawaiian batiks –  I finally bought the sashing fabric, so this guy is ready to be finished.  I may have a purpose for this quilt now, so I think I’ll get it done this quarter.  UPDATE:  I had good intentions, I really did.  I cut all the sashing strips, but I’m still not sure I love how it is coming together.  I will think about it some more…
  • The Cat Quilt – I have a plan for this quilt, as well as the fabric, but I need to figure out how to get it put together.  UPDATE:  No progress.  Nada.  Nothing.  Sigh.

So yes, some really great finishes and a whole lot of no progress.  But I think I have real-job-work-life  a bit more under control, so high hopes for Q2!
