Pineapple Hoop [A finish] and Q2 round-up

I think it's fair to say that I didn't achieve as much as I had hoped in Quarter 2 of the Finish Along. Various  commitments, and a desire to hand sew rather than machine sew, have meant less time at the sewing machine and as a result, fewer finishes. Though some good progress on my hand-sewing projects has been made.

First up, my final finish of the quarter: a hoop I started on a whim last year using a pattern by Louisa at Sew Motion. The pattern uses her signature curved paper piecing, and came together quickly. The ring was then appliqued to the background, and I added some hand quilting and a splash of embroidery. The pink is a Kona Solid (probably Candy Pink), the blue is a shot cotton, and the pineapples are from Art Gallery. The quilting and embroidery is in Finca perle #16.

Now for the rest of the quarter: just three other finishes... firstly a quilt for Jess, with lots of cats on it. 

The Inside Outside Pouch I had planned using a pattern by Aneela Hoey.
I planned one, but made two when I couldn't decide on the fabric!

And my favourite finish: the Tula Nova cushion. This is the centre of the Tul Nova EPP pattern by Tula Pink. It's what I made while at Simply SOlids attending her workshop. But in the end, it just wasn't right for where I wanted my Tula Nove to go, so rather than waste it, I made it into this cushion - a fab reminder of an amazing day!

You can find my original list, with all of the projects I didn't finish, here.

This was my worst finish-along quarter too - only one finish! I did start nine new projects though, making my WIP the longest it's ever been by far. Oops. Summer is for fun, right?
