Q1 2016 Finishalong Mosaic

I made a mosaic of my four Q1 Finishalong projects and wanted to show it to you:

They look so do-able in this mosaic.  Wish me luck in getting them finished!

Talk with you soon!

Q1 2016 Finish-a-long and Resuming my Blogging!

Well, it has certainly been along time since I have written a blog entry.  I spend alot of time on Instagram and just seemed to lose my blog writing mojo.  It's alot easier to snap a picture and write a few words than regularly write on my blog.

So I'm going to take the start of 2016 as a chance to resume my blogging.  So much as been going on in my quilting life, I have much to report.  Today, however, I will focus on my Finishalong commitments for the first quarter.

I have 4 projects in mind for the Q1.  

First, finish the binding on the Flying Wedge quilt I made recently:

 I've been making a number of wedge quilts - really like the process.  

Second, complete my Op Art quilt (backing, quilting and binding):

 I know - don't look at it too long or you could become hypnotized, or ill!

Third, I am going to finish quilt and bind this miniquilt.  I pattern tested for Pretty Penny 7 (Michelle).  The pattern is called Turning Corners.  I didn't need another pillow, so I'm going for a mini quilt!

  And Fourth, I am going to finish my Beaded Curtains quilt (backing, quilting and binding).  You may be noticing a black and white theme - yep, I've been having fun in black and white:

Many of you who know me, know that I usually quilt by checkbook - I'm trying to expand my skill set and do some of my own quilting.  Can't say I'm very good yet, but I'm working on my straight line quilting.  We'll see if I improve over the next year.

O.K.  That's it for this blog entry.  

Talk with you soon!
