My Q2 List for the 2015 Finish Along

Happy Saturday!

I was able to make decent progress on my Q1 FAL list, and was able to resist adding too many new WIPs for Q2.

I have a few project left to finish, and have made progress on all but one...
# 1: First up is my Blue Sky quilt top. This one has been basted, and I'm halfway through quilting it. I can probably finish by the end of the month.

# 2: The next one is my Hapi Carpenter's Star quilt. This one is also basted. I've started quilting it, I'm doing both hand and machine quilting on it, so will take a bit longer. I really, really want to finish this quarter, so it can go on my bed this summer.

# 3: I also still want to make my moneta. I haven't started on it yet, but I think I'm changing the fabric. I want to have this one done this quarter because I'm doing it in light pink jersey....which is really just for spring/summer.

I have added a few new projects for this quarter:

# 4: A trail tote (top left). I have most of the pieces cut, just need to put it together. I want to finish this as soon as possible, I have plans for making this my new everyday bag.

# 5: A sorbetto top (using the Cotton & Steel fabric, bottom left). If this turns out well, I may make a few more. I wear a sleeveless top and cardigan nearly every day, so I am looking for a new wardrobe staple that I can make in my favorite fabrics.

# 6: My Alison Glass mini quilt swap quilt. I finished the top today, just need to quilt and finish it up before the end of the quarter. I'm surprised this top is already finished. I was playing around with strip piecing this morning, and got carried away :)

# 7: My Riley Blake Challenge. I have the fabric, the plan, and I've begun cutting. I just need to finish it before the deadline, which I think is June....?

This quarter, most of the projects are small and I don't have many that will take longer than a day or two to finish. I hope to get everything finished up in this quarter, as I do have a couple of new quilts I want to start this summer!

Linking with Adrienne @ On the Windy Side for the Q2 link up. Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck Kate! I'm so impressed you are making dresses and tops, I hope you love them!

  2. You are going to be busy. Love your blue sky quilt and those hapi fabrics are gorgeous against that background fabric.

  3. Love that carpenter's star! You are very prolific!
