FAL Quarter 2: Finishes

I only managed to get one of five of my goals finished this quarter. Going back to work has really taking up my sewing time plus having my long arm machine broken does not help get the tops quilted. 

This was my one finish. 

This is a great pattern by Dog Under my Desk called 2 Zip Hipster. The pattern is very detailed instructions and easy to make guess that is why this one makes number four and number 5 is already cut out and just waiting to be assembled. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

Five months in

I went back to full time work this month so there is not much sewing but I am still plugging away at works in progress. My long arm is still in the shop waiting for a part to be organised to fix it so I have not been able to get any of my quilt tops finished. Just keep adding to the pile.

Since my sewing time is limited now I always seem to have improv scrappy projects on the go.  These projects are great when you don't have much time. I never know where these pieces are going to go I just stitch till I feel they are done. 

My design wall is full again. I am still working away at my Girl in the Wind paper piece quilt.  The last few blocks have lots of pieces so it is taking a lot of time. 

I am still working on getting my scraps under control what better way then to make quilts.  I have this  half log cabin block quilt almost done. 

The other scrap quilt I am working on is my own design. I lots polka dots and had a bunch of 5" squares that was for another project that I can't seem to remember what it was so I came up with a new plan to use them.  I think I will have enough for two quilts since I seem to have gotten my math wrong but no drama I will just make another quilt. 

Thank you for stopping by.
