FAL 2014 - Quarter 1 List

Finish Along 2014

I'm popping in ever so quickly to make sure I get my linky in on time to join this year's Finish-a-long with Katy at The Littlest Thistle.  Been dithering (as I do from time to time) about whether to join or not and then I thought 'why not?'  after all, my Quarter 1 list has almost written itself since I laid out my plans for a 2014 WIP attack on my last post.

So, with apologies if this post is rather repeating the previous one, here are my Quarter 1 goals:

1 & 2 - Siblings Together Churn Dash Quilts
I have a pile of 57 churn dash blocks donated via my Siblings Together Block Drive and these need to become two finished quilts ready to forward on to Siblings Together.

3 - hipBees Black and White Quilt
The hipBees have sent me a bunch of fun blocks.  Again these need to be retrieved from a shelf and made up into a quilt.

4 - Scrumptious Brick Layer Cake Quilt
This one already is a top so I need to make a backing and get on with quilting and binding it to finish.

5 - Embroidery Sampler
This little piece of embroidery stitched recently needs to be made up into something useful - a tote or a pouch or a wallhanging?

6 - Gift stitching
I cannot reveal what these fabrics are to become just yet as they're for a secret gift, but I have pulled two patterns and three fabrics (one is hidden under that top one) and hope to transform them into pretties this quarter.

Not as impressive a list as some I've been reading (!) but I think that will do me for my first ever quarter participating in the FAL.  Here's hoping that joining with everyone else will help keep my stitching focus where it should be!

I hope to be back stitching and blogging properly again next week (miss it soooo much).  Until then, take care.


  1. great list Sarah :-) Love the embroidery!

  2. Your embroidery sampler is stunning! I'm intrigued by that last one!! Jxo

  3. the black and white square quilt is going to be lovely, and I love squares

  4. Impressive is only because some of us start too much and then get sidetracked to other pretties! Lol! I'm sure you will master you list in no time at all! Still love that scrumptious bricks quilt, and your embroidery is stunning!

  5. Cute cute cute! Your stitch sampler is just adorable!

  6. Lovely list - the brickie quilt is beautiful and no.6 looks yummy x

  7. Impressive or not- I am not feeling able to make a list,even! Getting off my backside and doing may be difficult this year. Inertia set in early! So, your list is 100% more impressive than my non starter!

  8. It's always wise to link up when there's fabulous prizes involved :o) Good luck!

  9. What a good list. You are such a good sewist that I know that all these projects will be perfectly finished in time. Di x

  10. Great projects, Sarah! Love that embroidery sampler (I just started one last night myself!)

  11. Six finishes for a quarter will be heaps! That's two a month. Some people don't sleep I reckon!
