Finish A Long : Quarter 1

My main quilty goal for this year is to work on finishing up some of my UFOs/WIPs.  There are a number of them waiting patiently to become a real quilt.  ;)   To help keep me motivated, I'm joining in on the 2013 Finish A Long over at SheCanQuilt, so here's my First Quarter list.

1. Summer Sampler Quilt
I participated in this a couple summers ago and loved working on the blocks.  I have the backing and binding all-ready to go, so I need to bring it to work with me to baste on the table space.

2. Psalm quilt
This is a quilt I made for me using some lovely batiks and the Yellow Brick Road pattern.  It's sat for several years as just the top and backing fabric, so now it's time to finish this one up too.  I find it amusing that it was the first of three quilts I pieced with this pattern, but the last to be finished!

3. I have these great X and + blocks from a Flickr swap last year that are calling to be made into a completed quilt.  Not sure if I want to make 2 smaller pieces out of these, so we'll see how it turns out!

Short list, but they will involve some massive wrangling on the machine.  Wish me luck!


  1. Those are each lovely projects! I especially love the x and + blocks, they are so colourful. I am looking forward to seeing your finishes - I am glad you have joined the FAL.

  2. Gorgeous quilts good luck in getting them completed.

  3. Love all the colour! Especially on your summer sampler quilt. Good luck :-)

  4. Very pretty! That last quilt is sure colorful!

  5. Love your summer sampler - I am going to tackle that later this year for a bee I'm in. And the Yellow Brick Road is always a favorite go-to pattern for me. Good luck!

  6. I'm wishing you and me and all of us, luck!
