2013 Q2 Finish-a-long

she can quilt

I have decided that I actually need to start finishing some projects and get them out of my sewing cupboard. I have so many quilts that I want to start but then the momentum starts to fade when I think about the other projects... So what better motivation than blogland! I am linking up for the 2nd Quarter Finish-a-long at She Can Quilt. 

So my goals for Q2 

1. Spinning Stars Quilt. According to my flickr stream I actually finished the quilt top back last October and I think I had the quilting done by the end of November so that just left the hand binding. I hate hand sewing and teamed with the Australian Summer and me being in my last trimester of my pregnancy it wasn't going to happen. I have done about a quarter of the binding so I just need to find something on TV that I can bear to watch to finish it up!
REQUIRES: Binding

2. A Car Quilt for MissE. When I was going through my scraps a few months ago for my scrap vomit quilt I also started to fussy cut some prints to make a car quilt for my little lass. Kinda a rainbow eye-spy film strip quilt. As we are getting towards winter it might be a good idea to knock this one over!
REQUIRES: Finish blocks, Quilting and Binding

MissE's Car Quilt UFO

3. Washi Bedspread. Oh how I have neglected you beautiful Washi!Shame on me. The size daunted me to quilt. But as I am getting more confident with Free Motion Quilting I am convincing myself I can get this quilted on my good old Janome.Very ambitious for me to add this to my list but I would love to see some progress on it! At least getting it out to photograph is a start.
REQUIRES: I need to add another border for size, Quilting and Binding

4. Kids Quilt #1
REQUIRES: Just needs two borders and to be quilted and bound

Baby Quilt UFO

5. Kids Quilt #2
REQUIRES: Just needs quilting and to be bound

So hopefully this will help with the momentum. Fingers crossed my 3 month old continues his good run of sleeping and my visitors don't mind a messy house!


  1. I love the car quilt. Super cute! Nice list.

  2. Great list, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some lovely finishes. I'm also particularly drawn to the car quilt - it's going to be so cheerful and fun.
