Q3FAL - My List from MMM Quilts

It's time to link up the plans for the third quarter FAL of 2018. It's also time to reflect on the first half of 2018. I was going to do that quickly here, but now that I look back at what I wrote for Yvonne's Planning Party 2018, I think I need a separate post. And here I was planning to step back from posting for the remainder of July! Anyhow...

How did I do on my Q2FAL List?
I got 7 of 11 on that list. (Note that I did make all four kitty mats, just ...

Cat Mats Finish from MMM Quilts

This was one of my Q2FAL goals, to make four cat mats. My list is here. I'm happy to report that as of this week, I have completed that goal.

Here are two of them, modelled by the ever-cooperative Bella:

Seriously, she just loves to pose for the camera! She actually was a huge factor in the design process of these first two...

Kielo dress from Espritpatch

I have seen so many of these dresses on Instagram  but when I looked at the pattern I must admit that I couldn't see the appeal really. I just didn't see how the pattern would look good on me. As the #sewtogetherforsummer challenge was announced and the Kielo dress by Named Clothing being one example of a wrap dress, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it. So I bought the pattern and digged in my stash for a jersey I bought cheaply a while ago with no specific plan (quite usual really). I then ...

Q2 FAL My List from MMM Quilts

When someone said somewhere on social media that 2018 was one quarter done, my eyeballs popped open and my heart rate sped up! What? Wait! oh...yikes.


How did I do on Q1's List? I completed 5 of the 7 on the list, so I am pretty happy with that. The two incomplete will move onto this quarter's list, and I've moved them #2 and #11 on this list.

Here is the list of what I would like to have finished by the beginning of July!

1.  Postcard from Sweden

The deadline is April 18! It's ...

Kaffe Table Runner Brightens My Day from Mountain Quiltworks

This little gem was such a fun project. I adore bright colors, and the greens and reds and oranges and purples in these fabrics make this one of my favorites!  I purchased this as a kit at the quilt shop in Sisters, Oregon, about four years ago. And then it sat in a drawer. Why, I don't know, because once I got it out to make it up, I was delighted! Sometimes a kit is just the thing I

Another UFO is out from Espritpatch

My APQ UFO challenge for March is to finish my bubble quilt. I made and received those blocks between 2015 and 2016 as part as a bee and as often in bees I think I didn't get all my blocks. I pulled out all my blocks and found 18 of them, including 2 of them that I might not want to include in my final quilt.


So after thinking about making more blocks (I love them but they are soooo time consuming to make), I decided that maybe it would be easier to use what I have already and ...

A new dress from Espritpatch

It has taken me nearly a year.... I made my Moneta dress last year in February and stashed quite a few jersey afterwards to make more but of course, that didn't happen so when a sew-along came on Facebook to make a Miss Ruby Tuesday Dress by 1 Puddle Lane in a week (!), yes I know ... one week, I thought it would be good to join so I would have a new dress by the first week-end of February. Plus I already had a few jersey to choose from!

I started well, printing the pattern on day one, cutting ...

Float from MMM Quilts

Those of you who have hung around here for any length of time know that I love quilts with super-imposed images. I love when your eye sees a quilt one way, and then there's a 'shift' and boom! You see that same quilt in a different way, the first image receding, then there it is again, and so on. It's like Rubin's Vase.  'Float', which is what I've named my Splash of Colour quilt, has a similar illusion effect.


The sun peeked out for a couple of minutes on the photo shoot day, but as luck ...

Q1 FAL My List from MMM Quilts

For the first quarter of 2018, here are the projects I hope to finish:


1. Migrating Geese

2. Dutch Garden quilt for my aunt. It's the blue and yellow one.
I've moved it along a bit since my 2017 Q4 List...
I bought the Dutch Garden kit off Craftsy that you can find here, (affiliate link) but I'm doing a pattern out of one of Pam & Nicky Lintott's Charm Squares and Jelly Roll books because it results in a larger quilt. :-) Remember you do not have to use the kit contents to make the kit!

Rainbow Vibes Finish from MMM Quilts

This little quilt has been all done for a couple of weeks, and actually has gone to a few yoga classes with me. I just haven't sat down to write up the finish post.  It was one of my Q4 goals for the 2017 Finish Along. My list is here.



This is my own design, Ribbon Stars, no revolutionary block, but a bit of a fun setting. This is the fourth time I've made my pattern, each version a bit different. You can get it for free in my Craftsy store. (affiliate link) I hope you're remembering ...

Love quilt from Espritpatch

I have been trying to do a lot of clearing out and decluterring in the last few months, including in my sewing/craft supplies. And while going through bags, boxes etc, I have of course unearthed some long lost treasures, abandoned projects and all sorts.

I stumbled across a pile of Disappearing 4-patch red and white blocks that I had won during the Block Lotto in March 2011 (!) and that had been waiting to be put together... one day. Well the days to do so finally arrived recently and I started to piece the blocks together into a quilt top ...
