the last quarter of this year's Finish-A-Long

I had a list of proposed finishes for the 3rd quarter Finish-A-Long and of course didn't get any of them done - its been a bit hectic around here lately !! as there are still a few hours to link up with the last quarter Finish-A-Long I'm just going to repost that list - I'm hoping to have some time in November and December to get these long overdue quilts actually quilted and finished !!


I'm hoping to finish at least these six tops listed - all except one have appeared on at least one Finish-A-Long list !!

Nested Churn Dash quilt - a Care Circle quilt that has been sewn together and needs quilting and finishing.

Star blocks quilt - this quilt top needs quilting and finishing.

Polka Dot Circles quilt - blocks need to be sewn together into a top, quilted, and finished !

Scrappy Plus quilt - blocks need to be sewn together into a top, quilted, and finished !

Pink Pez Mod Pop - this quilt is from my first Finish-A-Long post back in 2013 ! I had a quilting plan that I tried a couple of years ago and it didn't work so it was put away - I've now got another quilting design in mind so fingers crossed this one works :)

Mango Dreamin' - this quilt design is Jacquie Gering's Atomic Squares Quilt which appeared in Modern Quilts Unlimited and I just loved the mid century mod design ! I still need to organise thread and a backing for this one but I have a simple quilting plan in mind so hopefully it will get finished !

I'm pretty confident that I'll have these done by the end of this quarter and I'm hoping that will set me up to get a few more finishes done next year :)

September Quilty 365 blocks

Eeeeeep I'm late, I'm late ... due to technical issues I'm a couple of days late with this post - well actually, I had issues when I went to post on Sunday so I thought I'd post on Monday and here it is Wednesday - ooops !!!

so without any further ado, here are my September quilty 365 blocks !!

I used some coloured backgrounds - I didn't want to end up with an all white backing so it will be interesting when I go to arrange the quilt !!

I found a few more Tula prints that I haven't previously used - as usual there are a few animal prints - it really will be like an I spy quilt :)

Can't believe I haven't previously used my favourite Denyse Schmidt fabric - the pink one above - its an original Flea Market Fancy fabric and its the perfect shade of pink ♥♥♥

and a few more favourites from this month ...

and how perfect are these spring lambs for the first day of spring !!

Hope you are making good progress with your circle blocks - only a few months to go !!
