Finish Along ~ First Quarter Finishes

she can quilt

I joined the Finish-A-Long at She Can Quilt back in January.  I posted my goals and now it's time to see how I did!  Here's the link to my original post.

#1 - A queen sized quilt out of this beautiful fabric for my bed.  To match the walls we Gord painted in the summer.  Finished!  See my blog post here.

#2 - I don't have a photo of it but I want to finish a mini quilt that has been waiting to be finished for a very long time.  The top was given to me by Amy of During Quiet Time and it will look perfect in my room.  Finished!  It was going to be for my wall but my quilting on it was less than stellar so I decided to use it on my table.  It looks very nice there!  Thank you Amy for the unfinished top.  It is finally finished.

#3 - A bed skirt for my bed to match above quilt and walls.  I might lazy out and just buy one.  Finished - I bought one. :-)

#4 - Finish up the photo wall and other stuff related to said painted room.  Just get it done already, Alisa!  Finished!  It was hard to take a photo of this wall but you get the idea here. Mostly photos of different places on hikes or trips and also one photo of each of our children and one of us.  These are all random frames, painted gray.  We are happy with it!

#5 - Sidekick Tote  Finished!  I actually made two of these.

#6 - A bunch of bibs  Finished! - most of these are gifted already, I need to make more.

#7 - Bias tape for my shop  Also finished!  I need to make more again.

#8 - Ipad Pouch Finished!

That was really fun!  It was good for me to set the goal to finish most of these things by the end of March.  It really helped in the case of my big King-Size quilt.  I am not sure I would have finished it without the push.  Thank you Leanne for hosting the Finish-Along!  I'll be posting a new list of goals for the next quarter soon.


  1. You've been busy! I love the colors in the big quilt.

  2. I am beyond impressed! I'm a little scared to take account of what I have('nt) finished :p

  3. WOW!!! I think I've touched my sewing machine 3x since January ;) Way to get all those things done.

  4. Wow!! Your queen quilt is just gorgeous! Horray for getting stuff done!! (I should try the goal setting thing - might get some more unfinished things finished too!)

  5. Wonderful work, I too love the queen quilt! Congratulations on the finishes!
