2016 Finish-A-Long Second Quarter

Two projects to finish for the second quarter of the 2016 Finish-A-Long.

My ten year old grandson walked into my house one day and said “Grandma, if you ever have time I have an idea for a quilt that you could make for me.” Of course I was interested, he then showed me some pictures on the internet and we looked through my fabric to get an idea of colours. What he wants is the Minecraft character Creeper.  So my first project to finish for the second quarter is Owen’s Creeper quilt.  Here is a picture with the squares cut out and ready to sew.

Second project is the one project that I did not finish in the first quarter, so here we go again.  From my 'quilt top' rack I chose a very old quilt top, perhaps the oldest in my collection, an Irish Chain in yellows and blues.  I will need to find a back, probably a white (I do have an extra wide bolt of white – that should work), and plan to do some custom quilting, of continuous curves and I’ll have to decide what goes in the middle of the white.  I am determined to finish this quilt by the end of June..

And that’s it, I did finish two of my own projects in the first quarter of this year, so I should be able to finish two in this quarter.

Take a minute to check out what others are hoping to finish, or perhaps join in the challenge fun at Finish-A-Long.

Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from people having too much to do, it comes from not finishing what they started.  ~ David Allen
