2017 Finish-A-Long :: Q1 Finishes

Goodness! I only had two projects on my Q1 Finish-A-Long list and am feeling quite the relief at having gotten them both finished!

First up was my Seattle MQG improv BOM which I was still in the process of designing at the start of the quarter. 

I ended up adding more skinny improv spikes along the left side, bringing it up to a size I was happy with (68" x 82"). Asking my guild-mate Matt Macomber/@odditease quilt it was a stroke of genius on my part, and he really brought the quilt to life. I call it Improv Alliance and still can't stop staring at it!

The Patchwork Forest quilt, using the Modern Christmas Tree block tutorial by Amy/Diary of a Quilter, very nearly did not get completed in time!

Making up the 100 blocks I needed wasn't the problem, but keeping on top of the process was. But whew! I took the last stitch in the binding on the final link-up day, and that made me a happy camper. Timing and weather didn't allow for an all-out photoshoot for my Uncommon Forest, but honestly, I'm just glad to have her done!

So now it's time to start a fresh new quarter and see what's up next!


  1. love them both. working on my Q2 list now...
