FAL 2016 – Q4 List

Writing this list makes me realize, I've been blogging for exactly 3 months now. In this short period of time I've already met so many kind and supporting people in the quilting and blogging world, it's amazing! A big

thank-you-1434501_960_720for the very warm welcome.

Now back to the title of the post - my new list for the FAL Q4 2016. For all of you, who don't know what the FAL is, the button with a link to the FAL page is on the side bar πŸ˜‰ I've learned that this list is a huge motivation to finish your projects and considering, that I will be having more time next quarter, my list willl be a bit longer this time...

1. Three Place Mats

2016_09_hexies_rest

The first three had been on my Q3 list and are all finished πŸ™‚ Now it's time for these three. Again, the background will be black and the binding made from theΒ  same scraps as the hexies. The handquilting will be different on all place mats - but I haven't decided on all designs yet.

2. The Rainbow Star Pillows

2016_09_kissen2Two fronts are already pieced and quilted and only need the back attached. The other two still need to be pieced. One will be the rainbow rose (small scale πŸ˜‰ ) for which parts of the HSTs are already at hand (thanks to the left-overs of the one in the pic). The other one will be a completely scrappy star. The backing is going to be the same backing that I used for the rainbow quilt.

3 - 6. Jersey shorts, pants and hoodies

2016_10_stoffeOne of my good friends I sew with just celebrated her birthday and I got her a spot in a jersey sewing course, because that's what she's been struggling with and what she does most at the moment. So I got myself a spot asΒ  well and already got the fabric. From top to bottom:

 

  1. Gray jersey pants with petrol cuffs.
  2. Retro shorts πŸ™‚
  3. hoody in this gorgeous star sweat fabric. It's sooo soft and even organic cotton!
  4. Another hoody in this single jersey with triangles.

The course will be next weekend, and I'll be far from finishing everything on that day - but you know how it is once you get all excited over learning something new and then you start shopping... πŸ˜‰

7. Christmas Table Runner

Well this one is going to be a present, so I can't tell you all about it, BUT here's the fabric:

And, after having re-read the rules *ahem*, I've also noticed, that my quilt top shouldn't have been on my Q3 list. Soooo I'll be listing it here for making it a true finish

8. The Rainbow Quilt

20160616_093455

It has been basted and I've started quilting it (partially successful so far...) and I really want to get the quilting and binding done in this quarter to snuggle up under it for Christmas.

So a really large list for this quarter's

2016-button-250-best

to which I'm of course linking up πŸ™‚ Looking forward to seeing your lists and goals for the next quarter!

Hope you had a nice weekend,

Vanni
