Lets see what I can get finished in the last Quarter of 2013..


I'm joining up with Leanne over at She can Quilt for the 2013 Q4 Finish-A-long, maybe just maybe I might get some of the these projects complete.  Two of these are carry overs from Q3.

she can quilt


Carried over from Q3 -
Mosaic quilt, not sure if I'm going to call it done and just back it, and quilt it.  Or whether to add on to it, it's kinda of small.

 Plus and X Quilt top.. Needs backing, and quilting.

Kaleidoscope Quilt,
 Needs backing, quilting, binding.  I have the backing already to go.


Spot of Fall - Just needs to be bound.



Stacks, pieces are all cut and some are sewn together.

Stop by and link up your unfinished projects, maybe it's the motivation you need 
and there's some great prizes!

Enjoy,

A spot of Fall...

I've been playing around with this wallhanging.  Not sure if it's done yet or not.  I'm thinking more stitching - some borders? or I might just bind it and call it good.  Decisions, decisions...



So I started by cutting 10.5" background blocks.
Then I took some Kona Solid and cut them into 8" circles.

I glued the blocks down using a glue stick.

The lightest yellow is not the right shade -but it'll have to do its what I had on hand. 

I did a raw edge applique.

Then I stitched free flowing straight lines down the center blocks;
 vertically and horizontally.

Then I stitched vertically on the outside blocks.  
I used three different color threads, rust, yellow and green.


I love the colors, they're my favorite!

Now do I add a border or two? Or just bind it?
