So as you know I am taking part in the Finish-a-long quarter 1
My list of tasks I hope to achieve can be found in more detail in this previous post.
Today is an update to see how I am getting along at meeting this list. Sadly I haven't got as much finished as I had hoped due to ill health, other unexpected tasks and things taking longer than expected but I'm sure that if I hadn't started this I wouldn't have accomplished half as much and I can always roll these items over to next quarter.
1- Strip piecing college coursework.
I had a mistake with one section that I stitched in college as I had the 1/4 inch seam set wrong and I stupidly didn't check so when I came to join it to a section I did at home they were completely different sizes. That college panel has now been repurposed into a journal cover for my blog planner.
The runner is now completed. I'm currently writing a separate post on this so pictures to follow soon.
b) seminole strips to edge pillowcases. I didn't like how these looked so I'm now looking at alternative options
c) applique initials onto pillowcases
d) 3 x log cabin blocks for D's quilt I've changed my mind and decided to do pineapple blocks instead.
e) 3 x dresden plate blocks for my quilt. I've printed out the templates
2- Finish the cushions for the living room sofa
3 & 4 - Sam library bag and innotab bag
5 - Finish my PJ bottoms
6. Alter my jumper
7. Finish my patchwork top.
8 - Mum's scarf
9 - Mum and Dad's blanket
10 & 11 - Japanese folded bags
I have finished Tracy's bag and she loved it so now that she's received it can finally share it with you all. There is a post to follow soon.
12 - Stack n whack
I've cut all the patterned fabric for this quilt and pinned it up on my design wall so I know which 4 blocks are rotating clockwise and which 4 are rotating anti clockwise. I've assembled 1 block so far so still to do:
a) cut the remaining shapes of the background fabric
b) Assemble the remaining 7 blocks
c) decide what I'm doing for the central block
d) cut sashings andjoin together the 9 blocks
e) Quilt and bind
Complete and delivered to a very happy Mum and Dad.
