2017 Q4 Finish-A-Long Hopefuls!

Yes, I am calling these all hopefuls. I am fairly close to done with all of these and do think this is a possibility. Seriously! Yes, there are six here. Yes, that seems like a lot but I am hoping!

Here’s the annotated list.

  1. The Kimberly Einmo Lone Star. The center of the top is completed. Once I add the borders, it will head off to a longarmer and then when it comes home I will need to bind it. At least that is the current plan.
  2. Layer Cake Explosion. I started this one in May. I have the four paper piecing blocks to do and then sashing to cut and assembly to do. It too will most likely go to a longarmer. Although it does need a little more work than the Lone Star, I also think it is doable.
  3. Christmas Jelly Roll Race. I started this on a whim a couple of years ago. It needs some borders and then I think I might quilt this one myself. I really want to have it done for Christmas, so I think it has a chance.
  4. Finish the four table runners I have started for the church auction. Yep, these will probably get finished. After all, most of them just need quilting and finishing. And the auction is an important impetus.
  5. Kimberly Einmo Spinning Stars quilt. I would like to see this finished. It is a bright fun looking quilt! I’m not sure what I’ll do with it when it is finished, but I do want to finish it. This has a pretty long way to go though, so it is probably the least likely to make it.
  6. Disappearing Pinwheels. I have enough blocks made that I could just put them together and make the quilt top, but I think I want to make a few more blocks so I have more choices. Then the left over blocks can go on the back.

So there are my fourth quarter hopes and dreams! We’ll see how it goes!

Quilt on!

  1. That is an ambitious list, but not overly so. You are far along in most projects and can do it. Use the leaders and enders technique where you can.

  2. I’m seriously impressed with your Quilts, to be honest I’m so new to all this though everything beyond squares is super impressive! Wishing you lots of luck completing them all this quarter. TwoTinyMakes

    • Thank you! I developed my interest in blocks with lots of tiny pieces over time. It doesn’t happen all at once. I saw some hexagons on your Instagram feed though, so if you did those with EPP, I’m impressed! I am not an English Paper Piecer at all!

  3. Good luck with your list of six. Even if you don’t get them all done, at least you will have made progress on all of them.
