The Lovely Year of Finishes

I achieved 9 finishes out of 11 (why didn’t I set 12?) in the 2013 Lovely Year of Finishes… I’m not going to take part this year, however I do have a wall chart and I will be doing the Finish Along for the third year running, I think that will be enough motivation!

Well, this is embarrassing…

I’m to name one thing to finish this month for the Lovely Year of Finishes, however I have grown my list quite considerably over the last few days and I don’t know whether I’m coming or going! I’m going to choose this as my finish- it’s going to be an Urban Nine Patch block with […]

Mini Quilt

An imaginative title there! I’ve finished the mini quilt for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap, here it is… It’s made with the quick curve ruler. I added some mini charms and some fabric as extras. There’s a sleeve on the back for wall hanging too. I’m posting it tomorrow and I’ll let you […]

November target

Well I didn’t finish my parquetry quilt in time for the end of October, but the good news is it just needs binding and it’s done, so hopefully by Monday I will be showing it all finished. I do need a target for November though, and the Mini Quilt Swap I’m taking part in ends […]


I had to sing that a la Gold. Sorry if that’s in your head now. It’s that time again, we’re entering the last quarter of the year and that means goals for me. Goals for the Finish Along and a goal for the Lovely Year of Finishes. My first is going to be a goal […]

Liberty Mandala Applique Quilt

I’ve not decided whether this is a Liberty flower or a Liberty mandala, but either way it was made from my stack of Liberty Stile I won at the Fat Quarterly Retreat… The design was made on Illustrator and then I printed the templates from there and glue stick appliqu├ęd them, with machine blind hem […]

Quilting Along

I’m making my Forest QAL project an official WIP because I’ve decided to go for it and get it done for the end of August so I can enter it into the linky party, pieced, quilted, bound. Here’s what my wall looks like now (just the stag block and some improv to go! OK yeah […]

Wallander Top, completed!

Yey, I finished it just before work this morning! The bottom right corner features some circles, the real reason is because I ran out of dark green, the posh competition reason is because I wanted to echo another theme from the same office that I drew inspiration from. Sorry the picture is a bit weird. […]

Goal setting and a winner

Firstly, my OH has solved the wonky Wallander block problem. It seems to be that if I number the pieces differently and put all the corners on at the end it lines up beautifully, look: However I am still needing to paper piece 100 of these in total which is harder than I thought. I’ve […]

2013, The Year of Finishes

This year I am going to continue with the Finish Along, now hosted by Leanne at She Can Quilt. Technically I’m a couple of days early for the link up but I also want to take part in “A Lovely Year of Finishes” too and I think these two things will work well together at […]
