For the Finish Along hosted this year by Adrianne at On The Windy Side ,
my projected finishes in the first quarter are mostly well on their way to a finish. As I'm not the fastest though, five projects is a long list! Click on the caption under each photo for a link to more information.
1. Toadstool House
heads the list. It was on my last two lists in 2014, and just didn't make it. I did quite a lot to it, even though this is not my style at all!
2 Optical illusion
is a project for a course running from November to January at QuiltersPalet in The Hague.
These are the middle four of the 23 strips, and they are the narrowest. They don't look much like an optical illusion here, laid out on my ironing board, but by now I've made half of the strips. The last lesson is this week, and I'm aiming on having the top finished by then.
3 Little Letters
From the quilt along at Temecula Quilt Company
The blocks are all finished; I remade the X. I just need to finish the sashings and cornerstones, and quilt it.
4 Rainbow Scrap quilt
From the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014.
The blocks and sashings are finished. I just need to add borders and start quilting. In the meantime the RSC15 has already started!
5 Sew Together bag

This is a pattern (by Sew Demented and available through Craftsy) that I've been thinking about buying for some time, but just bought on New Years Eve in a final dash before Craftsy sellers closed their doors to European customers because of new European Union Tax laws. (In case you missed this dilemma see here at My Quilt Infatuation).
I haven't started making the bag yet; I haven't even looked out the fabric, but I should be able to make it entirely from my stash.
I hope that's realistic and even though it's longer than my last list I'll be doing my best to get them ALL finished by the end of March!
