Finish Along Q2 round-up

Hard to believe we're half way through the year already - time is flying. But that means it's time to see how I did with the Finish Along in the last quarter. My original list was its normal ambitious self, and I have a final finish tonight.



These hoops required very little effort and yet have sat on my desk for literally months, waiting for me to get to them. They took less than an hour on Thursday evening! I had planned to add more sewing - quilting or embroidery. But the reality is that the fabrics are so pretty, I didn't need to do much - on one of the horse hoops I've actually added nothing. These are for Jess and Mia for their bedroom walls.

As for the rest of the list, I do have one monster finish. The 365 Quilt Challenge 2016 quilt is finished!! And I couldn't be more chuffed of what I achieved - read all about it here.


And I finished three baby quilts, all using the Fancy Forest pattern by Elizabeth Hartman - you'll be seeing more like this in the near future.... a full baby quilt as per the pattern...


...just the fireflies....


...and just the owls...


All three of those baby quilts will be given away, much to the disgust of my girls, so I made them a quilt too - Get Cozy.


And that's it. That's all I got finished. All of the other projects, even the small silly ones that would take a matter of a hour or so, remain unfinished. I won't go through them all here - I'll leave that to next week's Q3 post! However, I'm pretty pleased with what I did get finished, and I progressed a lot of projects and I have some new projects to add to the list that are definitely achievable in Q3. So watch this space!
