Q2 Finish Along Goals

Well I didn’t do that great last quarter – I finished two of four projects and made a ton of new stuff instead. Naturally then, two of these projects roll over into quarter two’s finish along.

Firstly the Hadley doughnuts are as I left them- one partial block. I would like this to be a quilt but temptation to make something smaller is strong…

And so is the Left-A-Lone Star, naturally, given its name. By the way I’m still hating what my pebble quilting looks like so I think that part of the design is going in favour of more radiating curves…
q2 q1

A couple of new additions this time. I decided to enter Festival of Quilts again this year, so naturally I’m making a big Hankface, which I’ve already named “Frankly, Hank.” Just for a laugh, if I can finish this before 1st May I’m going to enter it into the Quilt Masters/ Art Gallery of Awesome thing they started recently. I’ll need to write some kind of pretentious description for it, like what it’s a metaphor for, rather than I just wanted to blow up my gormless pet’s face because it’s funny (if it gets in I will definitely regret not calling it “Haters Gotta Hate”). Chances are though they will pocket the extra entry money and tell me to do one. What am I saying? Chances are it won’t be finished in time and I’ll be entering it into pictorial quilts and saving myself £12. Either way it will be there at the show.


Also, I want to completely finish my English Country Garden BOM quilt. I need to baste and quilt it before someone beats me to it and before I totally forget about the thing!


With finishing my dress for Quilt and Stitch village and class samples to finish making as well as teaching those classes, I daren’t put anything else on the list, this is plenty optimistic anyway!

Linking up…

    I love reading your posts, and this one, especially the bit about your dog, are hilarious and wonderful. I love when you wrote about writing something pretentious for it, as it so reminds me of being in grad school and getting that elevated language thing going when writing about something rather plain. Loved it! I also loved your garden quilt, and am impressed by all your other projects. Wow. I’d better get busy!

    Quite a reasonable list. You’ll probably be sewing publication quilts too and be very busy. 🙂 I love the Left-Alone Star quilt and the Hank quilt is going to be too cool! Best of luck on your finishes!

    Frankly, Hank has to be finished! It is your dog quilts that introduced me to you !

    I do hope I’ll get to see Hank at Festival of Quilts. Good luck with all your show entries.

    P.S. I adore the Hank quilt already!
