2013 FINISH-A-LONG

Accountability is good. Real good. I've decided to "finish along" with Leanne over at She Can Quilt. The idea is to list projects I hope to get done over the next few months and stick to it.

So here goes,



My pile of hexagons from last years Hex-a-thon. I want these sewn together.





My Farmers Wife quilt. I don't expect to finish this, but progress would be nice.



These blocks are nearly all framed, then I can cut them up and reassemble!



I've been playing with a few different layouts for the Scrappy Trip quilt.



That's probably enough to try and get done. We'll see how I do in the first quarter.

In my last post, I mentioned I had joined a couple of new on-line swaps. One of them is the Mid Century Modern bee. To kick things off, Carla asked for "juicy fruit" churn dash blocks. She wants red, orange, pink, and white-----together!  This is not a combination I've done before so when I mentioned to my hubby that I was struggling putting these together, his eyebrows nearly flew off his forehead as he pointed to my Scrappy Trip quilt.

Point taken.

Carla's block



I made another block for the Dancing Stars quilt. This one I will only work on when I am feeling especially patient........


and lastly, I sewed the block together for my Scrappy?Sew Bee It partner. 


That's it for today. I am off to the post office to mail my blocks. 
Happy Stitching.

Yay! For the Finish A-Long. I love reading your list of things to finish. Hey, let's be real. I love seeing all of your projects and love the "quilt vibe" that you have. It's also fun to have you in the MCModern Bee. I felt the same way with my block, but got it done . . . and sent!

It's fun to be introduced to new quilters, and I'm really enjoying your blog and projects.
