Finish Along Q1 - how did I do?

Well, not bad all things considered! Here is my final finish for the quarter: the mini quilt for the UK Mini Swap. I'll write up a proper full blog post once I've (hopefully) added in some extras I have planned and sent it.

But this mini is just one of nine finishes!

January saw my first rash of finishes - four in total! I finished of a couple of swap items with January deadlines - a Whimsical Woodland Mug Rug...

...and a Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt.

As well as making a new mug rug for my desk at work

And with a final push and the help of my January goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes I finally completed my Essential Sampler quilt.

 And then things slowed down a bit. Life got in the way and I got distracted by pretty new projects! But I did get a few more things ticked off: My February ALYoF goal was the Trellis baby quilt.

And my March goal was the Preppy the Whale baby quilt

And squeezing in at the last minute - two more mini quilt finishes: Love

And Wild Flowers

That gives me 9 finishes!

The other 6 projects remain works in progress, with varying degrees of progress to report... Aspen Glow, the Skill Builder quilt, my secret sewing and the Jennie Rayment wall hanging have not been touched - but the wall hanging is packed in the "hand luggage" of the move so I can sew if I get the chance over the next 5 weeks of unpacking and building work.

The Power of Nine Quilt is basted and waiting for quilting, but I'm waiting for inspiration to strike

And the cushion cover in the same design as the UK mini swap is now half pieced (but not half-pressed!). So no doubt some of those projects will reappear on my next list!
