Finish Along Quarter 4 2017 Goals!

Last quarter was a bust. Nothing finished. I did finish one top that was on my list, but otherwise the list is right where I left it… But I’m going to switch up a few things!

I have two holiday quilts I am super excited about making! A Halloween quilt and a Christmas quilt!

I want to start and finish my Christmas quilt! I’ve been thinking about it all year, but haven’t been able to get to it!

And I said I wasn’t going to do this, but I’m super excited about this Halloween fabric and quilt design I have up my sleeve!

Then there are two do Good Stitches quilts that I have to finish before the end of the year!

AprilDoGood-Minis-ImFeelinCrafty

And here’s a sneak peek at the next Nurture Circle do Good quilt. I have the top done for this one. I think the back might be the bottom fabric in the Halloween pile.

My second one for this year is the star quilt! I can’t wait to get this one put together!

This one is a new one! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this one. It’s our Seattle MQG BOM this year. And I’ve been keeping up with this one, so it shouldn’t be hard to get this one done!

And this is the reason I didn’t get more on my list done last quarter! I started this one! The top is done, so it’s close to being finished!

And now back to my nice long list of WIP’s that have been waiting around to get finished!

MightyLuckyJan-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

And there’s this one I’d like to finish from a year ago. It’s slated as a gift….

I’ve picked this one up again and hope to finish it ASAP for the whole gift giving thing!  This one uses the quick curve ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful

The last three I want to keep working on, or start, but I doubt I’ll finish them!

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

GreyQuilt

This is an old one that has been sitting on the shelf for about 3 years. Sitting there with a front and back done! So it just needs a little quilting love… It’s basted. It’s getting so close… Like right next to my machine!

And that’s my ongoing to do list! I know it won’t all get done, but I like having all my WIP’s in one To-Do-List!

Finish Along Quarter 3 2017 Goals!

Last quarter I got three of my to do list done! I got the Inside Out Pineapple Bed Runner, the Chaos Quilt and the Raindrops on Wildflowers quilt finished. Pretty good… So once again the list is going to be very similar to my last one!

TechnicolorBlocks-WholeCircle-ImFeelinCrafty

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

Finish Along Quarter 1 2017 Goals!

Ok, I just got a new machine, but have been sick and haven’t even gotten it out of the box! But this weekend…. I’m starting my list!! It’s pretty similar I know…. Ok so these top three are all done and basted… Just waiting to be quilted….

EmbraceChaos-Pattern-ImFeelinCrafty

InsideOutPineapple-Cover-ImFeelinCrafty

2016 Finish-A-Long

Finish Along Quarter 1 2016

It’s that time again! Time to list all the projects I am looking to get done this quarter! Time for the the first quarter of the 2016 Finish-A-Long! Last quarter, I had ten things on my list! I finished four of them! I finished the glitz quiltDad’s quiltThe Inside Out Pineapple Quilt and the rag quilt (I just haven’t blogged about that one yet!).

I want to get the rest of my list done this quarter! Like usual, it’s going to look familiar….

FinishALong-RileyBlake-ImFeelinCrafty

First up, The Riley Blake Challenge quilt. I totally missed the deadline on this one, but I still want to finish it!

882182_AV_R

Oh, and there’s the EZ Quilting Challenge triangle quilt challenge…. Also a Quiltcon challenge like the Michael Miller one. Again, I’ve gotten the ruler, but no clue what to do with it. Totally missed the deadline, and totally still have no idea….

SMQGBOM-July-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

Technicolor02-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

Last year I joined in two Block of the Month quilts. The green one, the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month quilt, will be done this week! Still need to figure out how to finish the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt.

I’d love to get these two done too!

I have more on my to do list, but……

2016 Finish-A-Long

Technicolor Galaxy- Update!

It’s been a little while since I updated on this project! I got close to up to date, but now I’m really behind again….

TechnicolorBlocks-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I got up to date with blocks 3, 4 and 5. I’m still in love with the project, I just need to get back on it!

TechnicolorBlocks-Blocks-ImFeelinCrafty

TechnicolorBlocks-Blocks2-ImFeelinCrafty

Each of the three blocks was really 4 blocks, so the 3 blocks is really 12 blocks in total! Block three was the Piano Keys. Super easy paper piecing. I made one extra block of this one. You can see in my planning for this block I didn’t use a solid. Once I had the two prints together, I knew it was a big fat NO!

Block 4 was the scattered geese. Another paper piecing, just a little more in depth. And I made these with a solid first, then decided I didn’t like it that way. So technically the 12 blocks were actually 16 since I made a few extras….

And lastly, Block 5 was the Arrowheads. This block incorporated the applique. I’m not a big fan of applique because I’m worried about the fabric fraying after washing. But I did it anyway! And I love how they turned out!

TechnicolorBlocks-Whole-ImFeelinCrafty

Here it is all together! You can read more about the earlier steps here and here.

TechnicolorBlocks-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

The next ring is waiting patiently for me in it’s box…. I’ve got one of the 3 sets done… I need to finish the rest of the ring to show! What am I talking about? I want to finish the whole thing before the end of the year…. We’ll see!

Finish Along Quarter 4

This finish list of goals for the 4th quarter just might look familiar… It’s pretty much the same as last quarter! Sorry to be boring! I finished my beach quilt, but that’s about it! Part of it was my machine was in the shop all summer. But I’ve got it back and it’s humming along beautifully! Yea!! So here’s my list…. (again)

FinishAlong-WIP-Dad-ImFeelinCrafty

Dad’s back is done, it’s been quilted by my friends at West Seattle Fabrics and now it just needs binding! I can do it!

There were two that I was supposed to do this sumer… First up, The Riley Blake Challenge quilt. I totally missed the deadline on this one, but I still want to finish it!

The second one was a baby minkie rag quilt and other nursery room accessories. I did actually finish it, but haven’t gotten to show it off yet!

FinishALong-doGood-ImFeelinCrafty

I also have another do Good Stitches Quilt to put together. This one uses my Inside Out Pineapple Block!! I can’t wait to see it all put together! I had to make an extra couple of blocks and as much as I love this pattern, it’s a bit time consuming!

882182_AV_R

First Quarter Finish Along Goals

After looking back over 2014, it’s only fitting to look at my first goals for 2015!  And seeing as how last quarter I didn’t finish ANYTHING on my list… I’m hoping to finish more this quarter! Can’t do worse than nothing, now can we! Here’s to the 1st Quarter Finish-a-Long with On the Windy Side…

2015 FAL at On the Windy Side

This list might look familiar… Since I used it last year! But I did mix it up a little and added a couple of other projects!

Gnomes-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

I did start this gnome quilt right before my machine took it’s nosedive. This one has been on for the last two quarters. It wouldn’t take much to finish, so I’m hoping to get it done this time!

WIP-Dads2-ImFeelinCrafty

I really want to finish my husbands quilt…. And I’m still trying!

Memory-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

The other two at the top of my list are tree quilt I started about 4 years ago and a memory quilt… Oh, yeah and there’s the teacher totes…

What are you going to finish this time around? I think I’ll finish at least 3 on my list!

A Christmas Curtain marked off the To Do List

ok, so this project isn’t very exciting, but it does have a kinda funny story. And it’s another thing to mark off my To Do List (which I was just reading and I can’t remember what a couple of the things are….)

ClosetCurtain-2-I'mFeelin'Crafty

For Christmas I made quite a few of my presents! And since back into blogging since the holidays, I haven’t had a chance to show them to you, so one and off over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing them with you! This project/gift was to my husband.

Curtains for our coat closet window. Why this closet even has a window is beyond me. Bad idea really…. But it’s there and it’s never had a curtain. We’ve put art in there, a stained glass window that didn’t really fit and I think there was even a piece of wood or something in there at one point. Yes, we do live in Seattle, and the sun doesn’t shine all that often, but when it does, I  don’t want it fading our coats. Also seeing them hanging in there isn’t beautiful to see from the backyard….

ClosetCurtain-before-I'mFeelin'Crafty

So this is what it looked like for the last little while. oh, and it’s not insulated, another bad design decision the designers had back in the day when the closet was added. for months I thought my husband had hung one of my son’s sheets in the window. Then when I took it down I realized it was actual yardage of the fabric that his sheets were made from! Not cheap fabric…. ergh!

ClosetCurtain-umbrella-I'mFeelin'Crafty

My husband has only been asking for a curtain for this window for years. Not kidding. Years. And I’ve had the fabric for years. Seriously. The curtain took me an hour or so to make, but years to actually do it. WHY??? I used the same process that I showed you in the Curtains are so Easy Tutorial. The funny thing is, I bought the fabric years ago when I saw it at the store and realized it matched our picnic table umbrella PERFECTLY! The stripes are a bit different, but the colors were exact. Notice I said WERE…. Here they are together now….

ClosetCurtain-after-I'mFeelin'Crafty

And the curtain installed! The picture isn’t great (at all, I couldn’t get a good angle without reflections of the bright pink slide in the backyard), but doesn’t it look nicer??

ClosetCurtain-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Needless to say, my husband was happy! If I hadn’t bought the fabric a few years back, I would have done the proportions of the fabrics a little bit different. Coulda Sholda Woulda. But it’s done and we’re all happy!
