FIRST QUARTER FINISH

I first posted about my 'Finish a-long' goals here. After three months all I have to show is one finish from the list. I managed to get my 'Chiclets' quilt done.


No progress:

1. Farmers Wife blocks - Not. One. Stitch.
2. Hexagons - some progress.
3. Scrappy trip around the world - together, but not quilted.

I guess one is better than none.  Too bad there wasn't a link up for the most starts  : )
That, I could handle.


linking up my finish(es) with Leanne at She Can Quilt


some hexies I started last night





These giants measure 2 1/2" across one edge. Soooo pretty

Happy Stitching today : )

Starting projects is so much easier than finishing them! Love your hexagons!

Some months we get lots done, other months, we don't get much done. Better luck next month/quarter.

Your hexies are gorgeous! And the Chiclet quilt is a beauty too! We all have start-itis in one form or another, don't we!!!

That Chicklets quilt is beautiful Can't wait to see what you sew-up with those big hexies.

Your Chiclets photo is breathtaking, Carla! I'm not doing much better on my finishes either but am putting off the post because I might be able to squeak one more in that needs quilting. We will see how tomorrow goes!

I would love a Start-along progress group--that is the only thing I seem to be good at. In fact, I excel. What are you doing with your luscious hexies?

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

That's one more finish that me...:)

Sophie Belle Designs said...

Oh you made me chuckle out loud with the punctuated 'not one stitch' comment. The finish you did achieve is beautiful and the others, well they'll wait patiently for you :)

Rebecca Lynne said...

Carla! I love your finish! Gorgeous! And what an awesome photo to boot! Hahahahaa Not. One. Stitch. Yup, been there... done that. Um, maybe next time? ;)

Nancy said...

I love the colors of your hexagons -- well, your whole palette, for that matter. They are light and bright and friendly colors.

Did I miss a post about Farmers Wife blocks? Is it a sew-along, a book, weekly, monthly, etc...?

Katie said...

Love the Chiclets quilt and those hexies are way too cute!

Lily said...

You're cracking me up! I need a most starts club too! Just finished my first bed sized quilt though! Love your colorful quilt finish!
