Finish Along Quarter 3

Well, it has certainly not been my most productive quarter! My original list contained a mere 17 items, but apparently I need lists of far more in order to be productive! I have just three finishes - the final of which is this hoop. And I cannot beleive it is only now being added to the list of finishes!

I made this EPP block way back at the start of the year: it was a trial block for the Alexandria quilt designed by Jodie @talesofcloth. I trialled Zuma fabrics by Tula Pink and didn't feel it would work for the whole quilt, so I started again. But this little centre remained, unloved. I took about half an hour to applique it the background fabric, which is Tula Pink Designer Solids in Cajun. That was several months ago. And you know what, it took a whole 15 minutes to put it in a hoop and call it done!

Also finished this month was the moth pouch: I changed my plans a few times with this, but eventually decided that done was better than perfect, and I love the result! Mostly I wanted to showcase that fabulous moth fabric!

My only quilt finish of the quarter is Lisa the Unicorn.

What about the rest of my list? The round of cat blocks are now all quilted - I don't think it will take very long to make them into cushions... I just haven't done it yet!

My Fancy Forest has seen huge progress! I've made owls and hedgehogs and prepared fireflies and thistles - there's a real chance this will be finished by the end of the year...

I've sourced a backing for my crumb block quilt: my Mum still had my duvet cover from when I was little. I have de-frilled it, but not actually basted it yet. I've made a few more penguins and added some stitches here and there to other projects, but you'll see them all again next quarter I'm afraid!

Linking up with the Finish Along for my hoop. You can find my original list here:

Such nice finishes. Well done.

Three finishes is better than none! I suppose the question is, how many new off-list things did you start in Q3 and how many were and weren't finished?! (Not sure I want to know the answer..!)
