Another September Finish

Yes, I can't believe that I have been on a role completing my WIP's.  Here is another one to check off my list.  It is another house quilt.  This is a wonderful pattern for scraps because anything goes!

And its a special quilt because it is part of this year's 100 Quilts For Kids.  It will soon be on it's way to a forever home via Margaret's Hope Chest.

Finish It Friday - Tilt!

Yes, I can finally say that Tilt is finished!  Started December 2011 and completed September 2015.  

This pattern is found in Kaffe Fassett's "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts".  The fabric is Olivia's Holiday and 10 various solids.


This is the first quilt that I started to machine quilt and was about half finished when I ran out of light gray thread.  I was having a tough time struggling with it in my machine so there it sat for a few years.

But with the help of making monthly goals during A Lovely Year of Finishes and quarterly goals for the 2015 Finish Along, I was able to focus on my WIP stack and get it completed.

Le Challenge - Wilderness

Who knew that my scraps could ever look so good?  I had no idea that I even had enough orange colored fabric in my stash.  I think it's the cute Fancy Fox pattern that makes my modern and traditional fabric scraps look so good together.

I think these foxes work well for this month's Le Challenge theme of "wilderness".  I have to admit that I was a bit stumped with this month's theme, but that's why it's a challenge right.

This quilt was made as part of the 100 Quilts for Kids project and will soon be on its way to a new home via Happy Chemo.

Finish It Friday - Sew Together Bag

Woo hoo, I am glad to mark off another WIP from my list because my Dalmatian Sew Together bag is done!

This finish comes about a month late for my Disney cruise, but I am sure that there will be another opportunity to use it.  This is the third Sew Together bag that I have made and its for me.

I have been really proud of myself for attacking my mountain of WIP projects, but with the holiday weekend here I am just itching to start something new.

But for now, I think that my September goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to finally finish up Tilt.  I am oh so very close.
