Okay, I am giving the Finish-A-Long another go. First, as a way to be accountable and finish some projects and, second, as a way to get back to blogging in a small way. No promises on either!
So, here it goes:
No. 1: Lone Fir in the Fog
This project now has a title and is a holdover from my 1Q2016 FAL goals (yikes!). Started in a workshop with the incomparable Gwen Marston, I am finally quilting it. It will be finished with a faced binding (or at least that is the current plan).
No. 2: Embrace Chaos
Embrace Chaos is the result of a Seattle MQG workshop with Libs Elliot. Using dice to create block placement randomness, I followed Libs’ technique and expanded the quilt to sofa size. The color (or colour, for Libs) is inspired by a Target pillow. This one is with Dionne (dinglebobbins) for quilting. We came up with a great quilting plan and I cannot wait to get it back and start binding it.
No. 3: Embrace Chaos Cast-Offs and Extras Pillow
Do you always make just enough blocks for your project? Not me. I am one of those “make extras and use the cut-offs” kind of people. Making Embrace Chaos yielded a few extra blocks and many half-square triangle cut-offs. What to do? Make a pillow, of course.
No. 4: Seattle MQG 2017 Block of the Month
My Seattle MQG Minimal Day Sampler Block of the Month 2017 is definitely my aspirational project for this quarter. As you can see by the pattern page place markers, I have not finished all the blocks and have a few to do. This project has been so much fun and I have been exploring a low contrast, quiet color palette. At a minimum, I plan to have an update for the 2Q2018 FAL list post.
Wish me luck!
