Finish Along Q2 Review

Another quarter of the Finish Along is well and truly over and it doesn't feel like my most productive ever... nevertheless I do have 9 finishes and some of those contain multiple items, one is a large quilt and another is something that has been on my Finish Along list for literally years!

First up the oldest: I finally did something with the Dachshund I paper-pieced over 18 months ago. It's not what I originally had in mind, but it's finished, it's pretty and Jess likes it. It lives on her bed. It's a bit of an odd shape, but I love it for its quirkiness.

My Trinket quilt was the large finish of the quarter and I'm so chuffed with it I'm so pleased I decided on a alternative layout to the original chequerboard. It's light and bright and a rainbow! And it has dinosaurs on the back!

Pouches were a feature of this quarter: I made five from discarded blocks from the Summer Sampler 2017

And three from Zuma. These pouches are all the Speedy Vinyl Pouch pattern by Aneela Hooey - with one super-sized one thrown in for good measure. I still plan on making more of these because they are just so useful!

And two rabbits.

I finished a mini Dresden as a pincushion - click through to find out how I made life hard for myself...

And then there was the embroidery - I'm really proud of the February Embroidery Month piece - I learned a lot of new skills and it's really pretty!

And the Bloom hoop, which was another learning experience, though perhaps not one I'll repeat...

And my first finish of the quarter (not necessarily the first I blogged about though) was the Moon Moth for Jessica.

I was hoping for a few more large finishes this quarter, but the reality is that time and inclination was lacking. i did make good progress on a few items so watch this space. Going back to work has had a serious impact on my productivity! But I'm adjusting and finding my new routine, so maybe there will be a few larger finishes in Quarter 3.

And no... Michael didn't finish the dress he's making either. You can find my original Q2 list here.
