I have several projects that I plan to finish in the third quarter of this year. The first one is very doable since I recently finished piecing the Bowtie Pasta quilt top below, and since it such a large scale quilt, the piecing only took a few days of sewing. It will be going to my local quilt store, ThreadBear, for quilting as soon as the quilt top and backing are pressed. See my 2018 Mid Year Review post for more details on this quilt.
I plan to turn the Red Backed Fairy Wren bird block pictured below (pattern by The Tartankiwi) into a pillow cover for my 88-year-old aunt who is also quilter:
Another block that will be turned into a pillow cover is the Allie Owl block below (pattern by Elizabeth Hartman). This is my oldest UFO as I made this block in 2016.
A couple months ago I started designing a quilt for my stepdaughter who is getting married. I’m using the Fire Whirl pattern by Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced. I’m calling my version, Wedding Whirl.
I’m using many of the same Kona colors in the Butterfly Quilt that I am making for my best friend. Below are photos of the focal butterfly and two of the seven Butterfly Charm Blocks I am making:
I recently purchased a Fat Eighth bundle of Alison Glass’ beautiful new Kaleidoscope collection and plan to make her Feathers Quilt using the Raven Kaleidoscope background:
I will be choosing fabrics from the array pictured below (I’m referring to this fabric array as Colors of the Sea) to make a set of six paper-pieced string placemats:
I will also be using some of the Colors of the Sea fabric array to make a SparkleStash’ Fly Delilah Fly mini.
My last proposed finish for the third quarter of 2018 is to quilt my Random Intention Baby Quilt.
Linking up to 2018 Qtr 3 Finish-A-Long Goals.
So many beautiful projects. It’s nice that they are at varying levels of completion so you can work on what speaks to you most (or has the biggest looming deadline, I suppose!). 🙂
Good Afternoon! Wow, lots of fabulous, fabulous projects. I just LOVE your Random Intention baby quilt. WOWEE, it is gorgeous. Your colors of the sea is just luscious and will be great as placemats (in my house, thank you very much)! And just the best is Wedding Whirl – those fabrics!! I am sure your stepdaughter will just love it, especially since it is made by you with love. Happy Wednesday! ~smile~ Roseanne
some lovely proposed finishes here Cindy , my favourite is the wren. Interestingly you are using mostly solid fabrics like myself these days
