Q4 Finish-A-Long 2013

she can quilt

Well since I did so well last quarter getting 4 of my 6 done and since this is the last quarter of this year, (where did the year go?) I am shooting for a lot of finishes.


This is a wool wall hanging from "Lily Anna Stitches" I need to finish the top stitching and then back and bind.
Another Wall Hanging - This one is from Buttermilk Basin.  All of it is fused on I now need to top stitch it all and then quilt and bind.
I started this so many years ago - I just need to finish and be done with it.  Blanket stitch and then quilt and bind.
More wall hangings that just need to be finished.  I might even be able to hang during the Christmas season.  :) 
This is a that I did and got quilted a couple of years ago and just have not finished the binding.  So if this it what it takes to get it done - I'm for it. 
Okay finally something new - this is a quilt a long from Christa Quilts.  If I follow her schedule I should have this quilted and the binding done by the end of this quarter.  So here's hoping.

This needs to be quilted and bound.  I made this last March and that's where it stayed - just a top. 


Here is one I had from last time - I have sent this one to the quilter and unfortunately she had some health issues that delayed her getting this quilted.  So if she is able to get this quilted and back to me I will put the binding on and it will be finished.  This is  Sweet Land of Liberty by Cheri Saffiote Payne - with a few adjustments. 

  And for the final one - this another one that I had on last quarter.  It is a fall wall hanging.  It needs to be quilted and bound.  Hopefully I will be able to get all of these done.

Happy Quilting and Blessings,

NewFO for September

Well I have to say it was a wonderful month.  I was on vacation for 2 weeks so that does help to make it wonderful.  And I used the driving time while hubby was driving to do a lot of hand work that helped me to finish some UFO's.  So even though I don't have a lot of NewFO's this month I'm happy that I still spent time sewing. 

So here we go I am continuing on with the Daisy Days BOM from Jenny of Elefantz.  So last month I started Wednesdaisy  which I finished -

But My NewFO is Thursdaisy -
The picture is kind of dark but if I use the flash you can't see the lines of the picture. 

Then of course I did a doll quilt for September with matching pincushion -

And then I did other pincushions for my pincushion group and one extra for a friend.

And I made more bibs for my Great Nieces that were got to stop and see in California on our way to Arizona.  They are so cute (the girls).  Here are the bibs.

So that was it for NewFO's. 

Thanks for stopping by - Blessings, Lynn

Q3 Finish-A-Long #4

For my #4 Finish another wall hanging that I started way too long ago. It needed more embroidery, Quilting, accent buttons and binding.  Here is the before picture:
And here is the after - finished picture:
I had two projects that didn't get finished but 4 out of 6 in a three month period was not too bad.  I may just make a dent in these UFO's after all.  These were some of my smaller ones.  I have some large ones that I think one per quarter would be a great accomplishment.  So I will have to start digging and figure out what I want to link to the next quarter, but for now here are my accomplishments.

Have a great day everyone!   Blessings,  Lynn

It doesn't look much different except if you zoom in you can see the quilting and then of course it is now bound.
