Why I won’t have a finish for the Finish A Long 2nd Quarter

Since the Finish A Long first began at the start of last year, I’ve always reached at least one of my targets, sadly this month it wasn’t to be.

Lots of progress (I think I had only sewn a couple of blocks when I started this quarter) but no finish. There was no way I’d get Hello Chevron done (the other item on the list) when Wallander was priority and I didn’t order enough Kimono Silk thread to finish the bits between the feathers. So by the time I am free to finish the quilting, and then bind it, it will be July (I’m working in London for a couple of days and then I’m away this weekend). Too late!

Here’s what the quilting should be like all over (it’s not wonky, it’s “organic freehand”)- the bottom right hand corner is all complete…

And the giveaway winner of the Superior Threads voucher…


Can you believe it, Janine has won for the second time in a row?! I’ll be in touch soon.

    Feeling your pain on the running out of thread issue. The same has happened to me. At least I’m pretty sure I can get some tomorrow.

    LOVING you quilting though. This is going to be a quilt that you’ll cherish forever.

    So the link for Q2 will be open till July 7 in case that gives you enough time next week. Otherwise, you will have more finishes for Q3. I am not sure I will have any finishes either, it has been a crazy quarter at my work, but summer is coming, right.

    Well that is a pain but it is a truly beautiful quilt. I too have failed to finish a quilt on my FAL list, so we are in good company! Di x

    This quilt is looking great and I love the way you’re quilting it. I can’t believe I’ve won another giveaway from you! Thank you so much! I’m usually very unlucky with giveaways 🙂

    There’s no shame in not finishing anything this Quarter. You join the ranks of us mere mortals who can achieve it regularly!! Wallander is going to be worth the wait though!
