2016 Finish a Long - Quarter 1

Well, in an attempt to get back into the blogging, I figured what better way than to join back into the Finish a Long! I participated  back when it began, but got lazy over the past 2 years by partially committing, not keeping myself accountable, and then completely not participating last year! This year, I'm determined to stay on task. I know that in the years I participated I actually tended to finish those projects, versus jumping around as i've done in more recent years (which is why I found myself with so many unfinished quilt tops this January and why I was feverishly basting and quilting during my nesting mode 38-40 weeks pregnant!)

This year it is set up a bit differently and there are 9 hosts from around the globe - 
These ladies are sure to have their hands full this year as I know each year the number of participants jumps tremendously. If you haven't participated before I definitely recommend checking it out and joining in on the fun! The ladies have also set up an Instagram account @finishalong and are using the hashtag #2016fal over there as well. You can add your own list to the linky party for quarter 1 HERE

Here goes nothing with my list..

1.  Complete Ruby, Pearl and Opal quilt - just needs basting, quilting and binding

2. Mon Ami quilt - this is a commission quilt that is in the very early stages

3. Polka Dot Beach Blanket quilt - this one needs basting, quilting, binding and a handle attachment for easy transportation

4. Swoon Sixteen Quilt - This is another commission project that needs to be finished this quarter, i've pulled fabrics but thats the extent of it!

I'm going to leave my list with 4 this time as I'm sure a newborn will be taking up a lot of my time as well and i'm thinking this might even be adventurous!

Fingers crossed for a successful first quarter! Don't forget to join in on the fun and add your link, you have until the end of this week!


  1. You are one brave girl trying to tackle this list but I wish you the best! Glad you are joining in again!

  2. this is glad to know that your participants are increasing day by day. All the quilts are awesome, especially the mom ami quilt. Keep doing the fantastic work.
