Q2 FAL Report

Finish Along 2014

The Q2 FAL link to post your finishes is open over at Katy's blog, The Littlest Thistle and it will be open until July 6, 2014 at midnight in Scotland - which means at my house I have until 5 pm July 6 to post any last minute finishes.  I'll be scrambling to try for one more finish this week, but I'm posting one link for each of the three projects I already finished now in case things get busy. There are wonderful prizes from the sponsors, thank you, and I don't want to miss out.

Canvas - pillows from my quilt pattern

I finished three of the projects on my Q2 list - which is here. These Canvas Pillows now live on my bed and make me smile every day. I am linking this wrap up post to link these pillows.  You can read more about their finish is here.

By the way, if you want to buy my pattern, Canvas, which includes the instructions not only for quilts, but also for piecing pillows and other smaller projects (and there my tutorial for constructing pillows here) you can shop at any of the stores listed here.

Friends - a quilt

Friends, made from the blocks sent by my friends in the Modern Stitching Bee, was really fun to finish and now to use. The Ta Da post for Friends is here.


And rebel - well this quilt belongs to my dear spouse now. You can read more about rebel here. I so love the edgy urban feeling of this version of my Canvas pattern - this is one of my very favourite quilts ever. I might be collecting more similar fabrics for another quilt, I am not done exploring them yet.

Well, that's it, 3 finishes off my 12 project list. And I have to confess that I have not touched any of the others on the list all quarter. But hey, 3 finished project is not too shabby at all. I'm going to have to give some serious thought to my Q3 list, which will be due next week. Remember, everyone is invited to join in for Q3 of the FAL, if you have not been finishing along with us so far.

If you have not yet checked out the FAL finishes posted so far, head over to Katy's blog, The Littlest Thistle, here. There are a lot of beautiful and inspiring links already up, with more to come as the week progresses. And over this week the FAL tutorial series is also running over at The Littlest Thistle - I am looking forward to seeing those too.

Such lovely finishes. Your bee quilt is stunning and a fab choice of blocks. So sad I couldn't stay in the bee as too much was happening in life. It was the right decision but still wish I was in it every time I see blocks posted.

Rebel is my fave this go-round! Lovely finishes for sure! said...

The FAL always makes me laugh because we make and finish so much more than is on our lists.
