2014 Q2 FAL and new exciting things!

So… This is a first, but the list of ongoing projects is insane and need to get some finishes happening! And I guess that’s what FALs are all about. 🙂

Gridlock/Tula 100

Blocks and some sashing done. Need to finish the sashing, get quilted and get the binding done.


Virtual quilting bee lap quilt

Top and backing done but need to baste, quilt and bind.


Simple sample quilt

Just a pile of jelly roll strips and a backing fabric at the moment!


MIL’s Mothers Day gift

Again, just a pile of fabric at the moment…


Charity quilts x 3

Haven’t started except for some cutting of fabric…


Other than Maisy (no pattern here – going to try some fairly random bordering of the panels), there’s a strip quilt and an economy block project in my head, but the fabric pulling hasn’t really even started yet…

Will keep on keeping on with other longer term projects. These certainly won’t be finished anytime soon!

  • Blue Dear Jane
  • Pat Sloan’s Globetrotter BOM
  • Barbara Brackman’s Austen Family Album BOW

Surely I stand a better chance of getting some finishes done now I’ve sorted out my fabric shelves (erm, yeah) and *drum roll* I have my new machine.



Too much of a bargain to turn down and found a new friendly local-ish sewing shop. No more sneery-looking-down-through-their-nose ladies now I’ve found that one! So excited to get it out of the box and get some stuff done, especially some quilting. Look at all that throat space! Squeee!

AND, I have a new camera too! Woo hoo to the end of nasty iPhone/ipad shots on here!!!

And I’ll try to link up with FAL2014 at The Littlest Thistle… Newbie nerves…
