Finish Along 2014 - Quarter 4 Round Up

Finish Along 2014

What now seems like a lot longer than three months ago I posted this list of goals for 2014's FAL Quarter 4.  Given all that has happened in those three months, I am quite surprised to find that I managed to tick off my whole list!

1 - Kaffe Fassett Sparkling Gemstones Quilt

2 - Apple Core EPP Quilt

Took a bit longer than I had hoped but I did complete it.  Definitely a quilt for spring in those fabrics!

3 - Wonky Stars Baby Quilt
My cousin had a baby girl, so this quilt hasn't been gifted yet, even though it's finished.  Rumour has it that my neighbour just had a baby boy though, so it might have a home to go to after all.

4 - Pixellated Heart Quilt
My cousin's beautiful baby girl Nina now owns this completed quilt.  Those horrible fold lines washed out before gifting thankfully.

5 - Butterfly Cushions

It feels good to have finished the year with a completed list.  The FAL was a great motivator and focus for 2014 which was a year I entered with way too many unfinished projects.  Over the year I managed 19 finishes which includes 11 quilts, 5 cushions and some miscellaneous items.  Not too shabby!

I want to say a huge thanks to Katy for heroically managing all the FAL admin and keeping us all in check over the year - no mean feat!!  Thanks Katy!

I haven't quite decided if I'll join FAL for 2015 as things are being mixed up a bit around here, but if you need a little motivation and encouragement to tackle your growing pile of WIPs and UFOs you should really give it a go!  There's even a way to play along on IG this year!

Linking up one last time with Katy at The Littlest Thistle.


  1. Woohoo, well done on all the finishes, happy new year :o)

  2. lots of finishes here now time to start on new UFO`s for 2015

  3. You have done brilliantly this quarter! And all such fabulous makes too

  4. You've had a wonderful year of finishes! I'm sure 2015 will allow for a little participation here and there when you can :). Happy New Year! X

  5. Wow, your quarter (and year!) have been super successful! Lovely finishes all of them. Happy New Year! X

  6. Very well done! This is an amazing year for you. I am again scared to check my list but know I managed to make one item the last day in 2014!

  7. You are a FAL star! I am hoping to get one more finish done this week, but I have not done nearly so well.

  8. What lovely finishes...and such a lot of them!!

  9. I've linked up for the first time ever, now that I can via Instagram. I'm looking forward to giving it a crack. Things have changed here too, with me not working from the start of the school year. There wasn't a teaching contract position for me. I was a little sad, but now I'm intending to sew my way through the fabric I've purchased over the last two years of working. Gives me a good chance to cross the things off my finish a long list anyway.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
