FAL 2014 Q2 Line-Up

It seems like I got nothing done from FAL Q1. Well, I did, just not what I expected to. So most of the items have moved to the FAL 2014 Q2 Lineup.

Finish Along 2014

N° 1 – Japanese Bag – Revisited

This was on the Q1 list and admittedly, it  looks done….

Japanese Bag - Done but Not
Japanese Bag – Done but Not

but in reality, it’s not. I did put it together as best as I could figure out with my non-existent Japanese reading skills. Then I used it. Not so happy with the final product. I know I did a bit of winging it when it came to the instructions as I wanted more than just a little pouch. As a little purse, it needs some reinforcement & a larger strap. So unsewing commenced and it’s at this stage now:

I’m thinking the new design features will help make it more durable.


N° 2 – Peaks 5 Mystery Quilt

This MUST be done soon but as it’s NOT done as of this writing, I’m putting it on the list. At least I know it will GET done! 🙂 As it is a Mystery Quilt project, I can only show you the fabrics & the starts.

N°3 – The Blue Quilt

This beautiful top was made for me by my sweet friends while I was in hospital late last summer.  Quilting ideas have been percolating  but others have been put ahead. I’m hoping to make a decision on my designs & get it on the longarm before summer as I’d like to use it! 🙂

N°4 – Peaks 4 Quilt – Texas Teardrops

I didn’t get anything done on this one. Too busy with the Peaks 5 quilt, which has priority since it’s a mystery and has to be done ahead of going to the Peaks retreat! 😉 Blocks need finishing with fusing and/or stitching, to be sewn together & quilted on the longarm.

I’ll need to work these around my client quilts.  Oh, and my daughter will be starting uni in September so there’s a Uni Quilt to be sorted. Somewhere in there I need to go to my “Other Job”. Now it’s time for me to go see everyone else’s project list. Because I don’t have enough to do. 😉

Happy Quilting!
