FAL Quarter 1 2014: Round Up

Finish Along 2014

So, it seems that I responded well to the motivation of listing my hoped for finishes on my Quarter 1 FAL goals list -

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.  Yep, two fun quilts were pieced and have been sent on to the Siblings Together Charity ready for handing out at this summer's camps.  

This pile of blocks became ....
one lovely quilt ...

and a second lovely quilt.

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.  This was my last finish of the quarter and with the agreement of my hipBee buddies it is now making its way to Mexico City as part of the Soy Amado quilt drive.

My starting blocks ...

and some from my bee buddies became a funky top to donate to Soy Amado quilts.

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.  All finished and lovin' it!

This pretty top...

... got a finishing treatment.

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?  Made this one into a pouch for my embroidery.

From this ...

... to something useful!

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.  Made, sent and happily received by my gorgeous friend.

From a not very interesting pile ...
... to pretty gifts!

So, everything finished (6 in total) and I'm a happy camper.  FAL ticks also equal a number of UFOs completed and that can only be a good thing!

I hope you had a good FAL quarter too.  Thanks Katy for keeping us at it!  Need to have a think about my Quarter 2 goals and see if I can keep up the focus.
