Finish Along 2016 Q4

It’s a cliche, but this year has flown by. It’s the last quarter of the Finish Along already!

I’ve booked to do a craft fair and thinking about booking another, so my list is largely so I have stuff to display and sell, and I need to finish these fast. I have things I want to start making (wallets and dog collars), but in the spirit of the finish along, these are the already started things that I want to get done.

Four Blanche Barrel Bags by Swoon. I’ve started sewing two, and I need to cut and fuse interfacing for the other two…

Two Weekender bags- cut out and I’m going to lightly quilt them. The plan is fusible fleece and then back with sew-in Peltex. I also need to find lining fabric that I will also use for the zipped panel on the top of the bags. I also want to buy premade piping for all of these bags, including the Blanches. I plan to go on a little shopping trip next week for zips and piping.

Crosswalks quilt. This guy is a magazine project. I actually need to write it up first within the next week or so because of this particular issue’s deadlines, so working on it a different way round to usual.

Also the Michael Miller challenge for QuiltCon. This needs doing very very soon, I’m actually a little bit panicked about this one, because the submission deadline is the end of November. It’s only going to be about 36″ square though.

Doggy dress. I started this about four months ago and it’s sat on the back of the chair that I sew at ever since. I was waiting for O rings to arrive, which now they have, and then I was waiting for more time. I also have some repairs and stuff to do to other garments I have made, but not interesting enough for the finish along I don’t think!

I need to make the “step-outs” for the step by step instructions in my book too. These need to be in by early December. If I get time later in December, I’d quite like to finish up my Lotus quilt too. It was the first project I started when we moved, so it’s been a good while since I picked it up, and it looks like this so far…

And in the spirit of previous posts, here’s where I was on Wednesday. We went to Moraine Lake and also Lake Louise (if that sounds familiar, it is where we got married a couple of years ago). It was snowy and a bit foggy but a nice day out nevertheless.

P.S. Thank you for the help with the blog reader last post. I’ve got it how I like it again, but not had time to read as much as I would like just yet!

    A lovely list and ambitious. Good luck.
    The picture of the lake is wonderful. I would feed it to the pallete maker tool and base a color way for a quilt on it. =)

    You’re keeping busy! Good luck 🙂 Love the look of the lotus quilt although I just keep seeing mostly formed hexies 🙂
