2016 Finish-A-Long - 3Q FAL list



2016 FAL

I got the hang of this now.  According to the empirical data gathered over the last 2 quarters, one adds more projects to the to-be-finished list every quarter, whilst taking great care, not to finish anything on that list but only other projects. Got it.  =)

Easy peasy lemon squeezy right?

Well then, the 3Q FAL list:


1. Tessellation Pillowcase:  Nope, nothing to report yet.



2. Mobile Phone Cover: No progress, just moving the fabrics across the sewing space from left to right and back again.



3. Make a final Pillowcase with the last leftover Polaroid Photo panel and stray Polaroids. 




4. Finish the 'Double Star' Quilt. No pressure! =)



5. Make an Improv Pillowcase. 



I have made progress with my improv piece over the last quarter but have not finished it yet. I enjoy the process but find improv really hard. I have to develop every step slowly rather then being able to cut 'n' amount of pieces in the prescribed manner to arrive at the pre- defined outcome within a foreseeable timeframe 'x'. It is a challenge.

As far as achievements go, I have managed to finish a quilt and two pillowcases this quarter, worked on a few bee blocks for fellow queen bees, made a block for the Pulse Charity Drive and have just about taken up working on my 'Double Star' bee quilt top with the view to complete it.

Let's take stock again at the end of the next quarter. Why don't you join fun?

=)

    1. Ha ha, excellent! I knew my approach would appeal to others. Good luck with your 3Q FAL list.

  3. That sounds about right ! The alternative is to put every possible thing on the list so you have to finish at least something - which seems to work for me! The list never gets shorter though as you dig deeper in your cupboards and add new stuff of course!

  7. Some lovely projects there! I like the double star quilt, stars are still my favourite! Ha, yes your approach to the FAL is perfect! I use the alternative approach that Nicky mentioned, add everything and hope something gets finished! Good luck in Q3.

  9. I too find that startitis gets in the way of finishing ongoing projects but I'm hoping Q3 will be the best finishing quarter yet. You have a lovely list! On behalf of the global hosts, thank you for joining us!

  13. I agree with your philosophy! If I am honest with myself, I seem to be gravitating to finishing smaller projects so the big ones just multiply behind the scenes.
