Q3 Finish Along Goals

Well… progress wasn’t what I had planned it to be for Q2, but I’m okay with that. I finished my big quilt (Faceted Jewels) and one of my other projects (the Wellspring House Woven Quilt). On the other two, well… things adjusted.  The other king-sized Lilac Hill quilt took a back seat as I switched from a trapunto plan to an applique plan. And now it’s sort of a muddle. I haven’t picked what I really want it to be, so it’s back-burnering for the time being.

For the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along, I just wasn’t inspired to finish these blocks. I think because my original purpose was to make it in honor of my grandparents’ farm, but I’ve also been working on Grandma’s Garden to fulfill that purpose (and I bought another pattern at the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival that will do so better).  As I was talking out things in a failed podcast recording last week, I had the idea to use the blocks I’ve made so far, which are blue and white, in the baby quilt for our niece that is pregnant. She wants to do white and blue colors for her nursery, and using the blocks I’ve already made along with the leftover HSTs from Blue Swoon in the same colorway will work out nicely.

So, with all that preamble, here’s my Q3 “finish” goals:

  • Niece’s baby quilt, made of Blue Swoon buffalo HSTs and Farmer’s Wife blocks
  • Scrappy Trip Around the world quilt, a donation to Project Linus or other charity (depends on need)
  • Grandma’s Garden quilt, from the Saturday Sampler blocks
  • Faceted Jewels pillow shams, made of leftover buffalo HSTs from the Faceted Jewels quilt

  • Periwinkle Posie, a donation to Project Linus or other charity, using my sample applique block from my class with Jan Cunningham (shown here with some scraps and yardage I pulled in the same colors)
