Q3’19 FAL Plans

I actually did a lot of sewing in Q2’19, but I got amazing little actually finished.  Of 7 planned projects I only completed one.  One!! In fairness that one consisted of making 6 tote bags, and I made a lot of progress on the other projects.

Here we go:

  1.  Generative HSTs:  This one is nearly done – just need to bind it.

2.  Narrow Chickens:  I requested this block from my online Bee group to make quilts to donate.  However the block pattern/tutorial was a bit unclear as to which way the big block was oriented – one way made a narrow chicken and the other a wide chicken.  As a result, I made and received a variety, so I made two quilts.  Both tops are done and ready to quilt.  This is the narrow version:

3.  Wide Chickens:  This is the wide version:

4.  Dots:  I did get this top planned out and made from the jelly roll I started with, so I did make progress.  Now to square it up and quilt it:

5.  Purple X:  This started as a stash buster with 2″ squares, but instead of just joining all the 2″ squares together I decided to try something different.  I like how it turned out:

6.  Blue Plus:  Same idea as Purple X, but a plus and blue.  This one came from “Modern Plus Sign Quilts” by Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander, whose blog hop I participated in last year:

7.  Han and Leia:  I made these blocks to hang in my office and join my Death Star.  I’m just going to quilt them up as mini quilts:

8.  Wavelength:  I made a bunch of extra HSTs when I made the Generative HSTs, which I used in a different arrangement for this quilt top.  I think I’m going to quilt it with different color threads and have those colors go off into the grey.  Should be kind of cool, I hope…

9.  Spinning Stars:  I’m still trying to figure out what to do with these blocks.  Maybe it will come to me this quarter..

That should keep me busy.  I also want to plan and design a few more things – maybe my own sampler?  We’ll see.  Lots of quilting ahead this quarter!

Linking up with the Q3’19 FAL.

  1. Oh such a wonderfully colorful quarter! Can’t wait to see your finishes. Will you show us your death star when you get han & leia finished?

  2. Great stuff! I love the narrow and wide chickens. The Dots project is so fun! And those spinning stars are awesome! Good luck with your projects. Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2019 global FAL hosts.
