Finish-A-Long Third Quarter Finishes

The Finish-A-Long sponsored by Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap is never far from my mind. Which is good, as it keeps me going on wips in the midst of frequently finding new projects to start! 

This third round, I had 4 projects on my list. A year in the making was the 
4x5 modern Quilt Bee quilt. I had blocks from 3 rounds of the bee, and just needed to pull them all together.
After much debate, I ended up framing all the blocks in Kona Tangerine, then finished with a border in Kona Charcoal. In the end, it was a pretty traditional finish for these modern blocks, now known as G.O. Modern
There's a pretty photo-heavy post here if you want to read more about this project, and a run-down of my adventure in quilting it here. Major accomplishment for me, this one.

Marmalade "Storytime Squares" baby quilt was up next. I had the piecing of this baby quilt well under way.
So A Taste of Marmalade was a pretty sweet finish.

A QWERTY variation kind of loomed in the background for a while. This "re-do" of the original QWERTY was for my bookkeeper friend, who had given me a focus fabric to work with.
Once I actually faced this stack on my sewing table, Digits came together without much fuss.

What I haven't gotten done is my Christmas lap quilt to coordinate with the non-traditional tree skirt I made last December.
Wonderland tree skirt complete
I do have some blocks pieced, and this one is definitely going right back on the list for the fourth quarter!
Stay tuned - those greens and browns in the tree skirt photo will still be making an appearance!

I'll be linking my finished projects up to the Finish-A-Long Third Quarter Linky Party! Also linking up with Let's Get Acquainted Monday Link Up.

Great finishes this quarter - including the not-yet finish :) I missed out on your Christmas skirt but I really like it and think the quilt to go along will look great.

Great job for this quarter :o) I always start off tracking things pretty well, then lose the plot after a month or so and forget up until about a week to go lol

I love all your makes but the 4*5 modern bee quilt is my all time favourite!

The Patchsmith said...

You have been busy. I particularly like the marmalade quilt. Did you quilt it or did you have it done on a long-arm machine?

Rachel said...

Congrats on all your finishes!

Fabulous finishes! I think I missed your G.O. Quilt so I'm going to go and read all about it, especially the quilting stuff since I've now got 3 tops basted awaiting my inspiration.
