2017 FAL - Fourth Quarter

I have had a break from the Finish-A-Long lists since Spring but as they help me to keep my focus and not loose sight of my WIPs, I have decided to compile a list again for the last quarter:

1. Baby Quilt

My friend Hannah is expecting a baby girl in October, so I need to finish a baby blanket for her. Currently, I am still embroidering highlights into some cute animal panels of Gingiber's 'Thicket' fabric line.

2. Tessellation Pillowcase 

Yes, this is a true UFO - I will take this to the sewing retreat hosted by Allison of Campbell Soup Diary and Melanie of Melanie's Kunstraum at the end of October. Last chance to finish it. If I don't, I will orphan the pieces and clear them out.

3. The 'Double Star' Quilting Bee Quilt 2016 

The quilt top has not progressed this year so this too will come to the sewing retreat with me. I want to make progress with this one to get it off my to-do list.

4. Oh Deer Quilt Top

The fabric for the quilt top has been cut now it wants assembling.

5. Indigo Dyed Pillowcase

I dyed this piece of fabric during an Indigo dyeing workshop in Kyoto in September. Now it too wants to become a pillowcase.

Of course these are not all the projects I am currently working on but these are the ones most likely to be progressed. So ready, steady, go!


  1. Good luck on your list! I just started Finsh-A-Long this year and it really does help me stay focused. And that indigo indigo piece is stunning!!!

  2. I love the embroidery you're adding on the Thicket animals, that's a great idea! Good luck with your list!

  3. List of lovely projects! The fabric you dyed is stunning! Well done! And I love the accents to the bunny!

  4. Prepping some projects for retreat sounds great. I should do that, too. me and my last minute attitude :) I love both ones you picked so I (we)will cheer you on so you don't need to orphan them.

  5. Sometimes you just need a list to keep on track. The little details you are adding to the baby quilt are so sweet. Can't wait to see your finish on that one. And I am in love with the Oh Deer Quilt. Remember, just keep sewing :)

  6. This is a great list Katrin. All very colourful. The dyed fabric is amazing.

  7. Great list! That indigo dyed piece is a stunner! Thanks for participating on behalf of the 2017 FAL crew!


Happy to see you here. Thank you for taking the time to engage. =)
