Finish-Along 2016 - Quarter 4 :: Another epic list ....

Having such a miserable completion percentage for Quarter 3 you might have thought I would have gone small for Quarter 4 ...... of course I haven't!!  I have taken off some items but others have been added and I really like all of these things and I really want to FINISH them.  I am going to try to complete some each month, rather than leave it to the last week of the quarter like I did in September!

1.  I made this panel for my daughter's birthday and I need to get it made into a cushion  UPDATED 16/10/2016 - this is now finished.  Click here to read more about it.

2.  Another birthday present that isn't finished!!  I have now pieced all the feathers and this needs to be quilted and bound.  Just waiting for the backing fabric.

3.  My quilt top from the Rainbow Rose QAL needs to be quilted and bound.  UPDATED 16/12/2016 This is now complete - click here

4.  My Christmas quilt needs some more blocks making, pieced, quilted and bound for Christmas 2016!!

5.  Dachshund project No 2 for my other daughter's birthday.  UPDATED 27/12/2016 This is now finished - click here

6.  I need to hand sew the binding for this mini quilt that I have made for a swap.  UPDATED 13/10/2016 This is finished and sent - click here

7.  I want to turn this test block into a mini quilt.

8.  And another mini quilt in the making!

 9.  This only needs a closure of some type to finish it.

10.  This is going to be a Christmas wall hanging.  I have all the pieces ready and the backing chosen.

11.  A Crayola Challenge entitled My Perfect Day issued by my local quilting club.  The Cloud9 Cirrus Fabric in iris fabric is the perfect colour.

12.  Back to Front quilt needs the top finishing and then to be quilted and bound.

13.  Studio window blind - an alteration on an existing blind to make it larger and turn it into a Roman Blind.

14.  A project, large or small, from Welcome to the North Pole.  I have already cut shapes ready when I made a couple of blocks for a swap earlier in the year.

15.  This is a quilt top with pockets for an advent calendar that my Mum found in her cupboard.  I am going to quilt and bind to finish it.  UPDATED 23/10/2016 - this is now quilted and a post about it can be found here

16.  Rope bowls - they were on my present list last year but never got made.  They are on my present list again this year so fingers crossed!!  UPDATED 22 November 2016  made and gifted - only one photo taken which you can see here

17. Black & White + 1 challenge quilt - I already started and discarded on project so I really need to get a move on with this if I am going to meet the deadline.

18.  Pears needs to be quilted and edged

19.  My quilt from The Bee Hive needs to be pieced, quilted and bound.

20.  This is for me!!!  Start and finish a Caravan Tote by noodlehead.

21.  This has been on my list for waaaaaay too long. I know what I am making with it and I bought the materials  last quarter so here's hoping I can cross this one off!

22.  Yet again a really old project - I need to turn it into something, probably a cushion, or pass it on this quarter.

23.  I need to finish this Italian Houses wall hanging.  I've just realised that I did this workshop a year ago and this has been sat there all this time.

24.  Lighting the Town houses from Anne Hellyer workshop

25.  A Christmas Tree skirt.  I have wanted to make one of these for a couple of years now.  I have a template skirt in the shipping that arrived from NZ and I have plenty of Christmas fabric.  I would love to make one of these instead of draping red fabric around the tree as usual.

Linking up to the Finish-Along over at Mrs Sew and Sow.


  1. That's a pretty ambitious list! Good luck!

  2. Good luck working through your list. It will be fun to follow along with your progress. :)

  3. Well . I started off thinking , yes you can do this then I realised how long your list is ! Good luck but don't be too hard on yourself

  4. I love a nice long list! Good luck! You've got this!

  5. That is a great list of works in progress, I will enjoy seeing your progress.

  6. Wow what a list Abigail. Good luck with this list and remember you can only 'do your best' lol. And your ' best ' is very good...looking forward to seeing pics.. hugs xx

  7. Your lists make me smile - that's about 5 years work for me! In my head I imagine you sewing at fast forward speed.

  8. You've got a lot of great projects here! I especially love your Italian houses. Good luck with Q4! (And it's nice to see I'm not the only one with a long list!)

  9. You and I seem to be in similar boats. You have a lot of fun stuff going on. And some that are really close to done. I love the Rainbow Rose. Congrats on your first finish of the quarter and good luck on the rest! :-)

  10. That is some list Abigail! On the other hand you have a great work ethic, if you don't get it all done I'm betting you put a huge dent in it. :-)

  11. There's a lot of projects on that list, luckily a lot seem small or close to finished. You have reminded me that I've got the Welcome to the North Pole book somewhere as well (amongst several other Christmas patterns). I should dig it out and make something... Good luck with your finishes.

  12. That is quite a list, but I like a big list. It gives you lots of options for things to work on. Good luck, I look forward to seeing your finishes this quarter.

  13. This is the never ending list! But a lot of them are so close to being finished, so I hope you are able to cross a lot of them off your list by the end of December.
