It's time to link your Q1 FAL finishes!

Mod Pop

So as your hostess for the Finish-A-Long, I have the privilege of sharing my finishes from my Q1 FAL List - which is here - first.

I am very proud to show you my king size Mod Pop. She still does not have an official name, although I am leaning toward Molten or Lava Lamp. This quilt is big - king size - and I have been sleeping under her every night. You can read the Ta Da post about her here.

I finished this quilt as part of the Mod Pop QAL and you can see other finishes Mod Pops linked here or in the flickr group here. Julie's wonderful pattern is here.

Scrappy Trip

My second and only other finish for Q1 is my lovely Scrappy Tripalong quilt - Trippy #1. This quilt often cuddles with me when I am reading the internet. Her Ta Da post is here and the link to the pattern is in that post too.

That it for me this quarter, 2 finishes out of 6 excellent projects. I did make some bee blocks, and a couple of mini quilts and went to QuiltCon and stuff, and that old statitis has been acting up this quarter too. But no more finishes from my FAL list. I am going to have a long list for next quarter, it is a good thing the sun stays up longer in the spring.

Now it is your turn, link up your finishes. Remember this question from last post:

How do I link up my finishes? Do I need one link for each finish?
  • Please link one blog post or flickr picture for each finished item.
  • If you like, you can link up older blog posts where you first showed off your finished item, you do not have to write a new post for each finish. 
  • It is nice to see one end of quarter post letting us all know how you did overall, so feel free to use this post to link one item and then link older posts for the rest of the finishes.
  • Please ensure that at least one your end of quarter linked posts contains a link to your original Q1 FAL list so that I can check to make sure your finishes are of things on your Q1 list. It is even easier for me if all of the linked posts link to that original Q1 list. If you are linking flickr photos, add a link to the originally linked flickr photo in the photo description. And yes, I do check, Rhonda can be a bit of a taskmaster you know.

The link is open until midnight MST April 7 - don't be late. You must link your finishes by then for them to count in the draw for the wonderful prizes from our generous and wonderful sponsors. If you are trying to squeeze one last finish in you can link the rest now and that last one at the 11th hour - just saying.

I can't wait to see how many beautiful projects you have finished and gotten out of your sewing rooms this quarter. Oh, and you can start getting together your Q2 lists, the link for posting that list will open on April 8. Don't forget, we have all those great tutorials coming daily this week, in between the link ups - it is going to be a fun week.

I wish you all a lovely Easter,
