2016 Q2 Finish Along Recap

Quarter 2 is over, and it’s time to recap my progress on my UFOs for the 2016 Finish Along. While I got quite a few things done, I didn’t get as much done as I would have hoped. And I’ve added to my list of things to do. Isn’t that always the way? <grin>

My list of Quarter 2 WIPs is here. It’s a long list, but I’m not crazy. There’s no way I actually thought I would get all those things done! It’s that I’m a list maker by nature so for me it’s simpler to write down all my WIPs on one giganto list then to limit the list to only those I think I’ll get done in a certain quarter. Here are my finishes for Quarter 2.

  • Brickyard
  • Rainbow Connection (Charming Stepping Stones)
  • Pieced zippered pouch
  • Pixie baskets
  • Quilt sampler
  • Scissor cozy
  • Dotty blocks


I just showed off this beauty of a finish so I won’t bore you. Suffice it to say that I’m pretty proud of her. If you’d like the pattern, it’s in my shop in both printed and instantly satisfying PDF download form.

Rainbow Connection (Charming Stepping Stones)

Rainbow Connection is a mini block version of my Stepping Stones pattern that I call Charming Stepping Stones. I’m pretty proud of this one because I did the quilting all by my lonesome! Although the pattern for Stepping Stones is up in my shop, you’ll have to wait a little while for Charming Stepping Stones as I clear my desk of projects that are overdue. Sob.

Pieced Zippered Pouch

As some of you know, I have a love-hate relationship with zippers. So I keep pushing myself to make things with zippers like this pieced zippered pouch in order to improve my “technique” if you can call it that. I’m sure you’ll see more zippered items on my blog here soon as I’m resolved to keep at it until I feel comfortable.

Pixie Baskets

These little beauties charmed their way into my heart a few months ago. I just knew I had to make more of them during Quarter 2! Aren’t they stinkin’ cute?

Quilt Sampler

A goal I had for Q2 was to improve my quilting with more practice. So I created this quilt sampler of favorite quilt designs and I'm slowly filling it up. I’ve already got a few more patterns I’ve seen out there on the Internet that I want to add to it, so it’s definitely been a useful project.

Scissor Cozy

I fell in love with this zippered scissor cozy after seeing it on Pinterest and decided to make it another one of my zipper challenge projects. A lucky reader won it in a recent giveaway. Job well done, me!

Dotty Blocks

My bee has gone dotty for dotted fabrics. Recently, we had a dotted block exchange and I designed nine dotted blocks just for it. Here are just a few I made before I gave them away.

Well that’s it! I’m off to update my Quarter 3 WIP list, which is due on July 8th for those of us participating in the 2016 Finish Along.
