Finishalong - 3rd quarter 2016

ACK!!! I've been assembling and deciding and pulling all my beautiful WIPs and UFOs for a week now and it's the moment of truth and putting it out there and I have less than 17 minutes now!! Of course I'm struggling with the new laptop, rushing back and forth with the old laptop but my entry is in, with at least 30 seconds to spare. For the 3rd quarter - think varied and think big lots. Top row, left to right - Garden State CAL, baby afghan "A" in Monet, baby afghan "B" in brights, Craftsy's 2016 BOM (I've been defiant because my absolute #1 despised quilty thing is to cut up little squares and sew them at the edges of larger squares, on a diagonal, then trim, fold over and press. I only like techniques like "no waste flying geese.") Middle row, left to right - baby quilt "A" (Resolution block set on point), the string quilt that won't take a hint and disappear into Permafrost UFO land, the log cabin in aquas and newsprint (Quilt Sandwich Fabrics in Marysville, WA had a tutorial on this last summer and I loved the color combination), and baby quilt "A" (which will be for Kristin and Jose's new baby, Savannah.) Bottom row, left to right - two lined linen sheaths (McCalls6887) in electric blue lol and jade, set of two appliqued kitchen terrycloth towels, cherry blossom afghan (baby afghan "C"??), and Pat Sloan 2015 challenge "Little Stars."
Thirteen projects, varied crafts and techniques. My problem with finishes is I get bored doing one kind of thing and want to do something else. Hence the varied projects may service my ennui. And I just realized I forgot to include the mug rugs. Hello, October!!
