Finish-Along: Q2 Finishes

Sadly, only one as per my Q2 Goals post - but what a doozy!

After four years of painstaking toil, the Plain Jane Passacaglia is DONE!

Full picture of it hanging in the show, this weekend just past:

Lovely as it is, I'm so glad it's done...well, mostly. I might do some more quilting on it. Or cut it up and remake it, just for fun. We'll see how I feel about it shortly...


I did get Break Free Or Build Upon to the flimsy stage - even to the basting stage!

And then, once again, my machine failed me in the final week, and I had to withdraw my entry in the Sydney Quilt Show.

To be honest, it doesn't do quite what I'd hoped it might. It's also overly-large and I don't know what I was thinking making it like that...


The other goals are being rolled over to Q3:

-2x Scrappy Round The World
-4x backings

List of hopefuls for the second half of 2018

While it’s good to have goals per quarter, I’m trying to draw up goals for the entirety of 2018. This should cut down a little on the chop-and-change nature of my quilting.

1. Get 4 more backings done and send off. FIND A NEW (LOCAL) QUILTER. (Love the one I've been using all this time, but she's in another city and not an easy one for me to reach.)
2. Bind 4 quilts returned from quilter.
3. Make 2 round the world flimsies from 2.5” strips.
4. #100blocks100days Challenge (Tula Pink 100 Blocks): make in Tula and Kona solids.
5. Snowflake block – publish (get pattern tested by the ModSquad ladies?
6. Swarm quilt – draw up pattern - publish in Make Modern?
7. Make 4 cousin quilts.

7. Design this – one side block, one corner block, one centre block
