Finish it Fall update 8

The final update!

Happy Winter Solstice, everyone!  That means today is the final day of Finish it Fall!  This has been such a fun way to push myself.  I started off with 8 total quilts, only dropped one from the list, and I finished 3 of them!  That’s almost half!  I’m proud of the progress I made, and I’m looking forward to continuing this trend.  I’ve still made more progress on a few of the quilts that I didn’t finish, and I’ve got more to near completion that I really expected to! Let’s take a look!

Finished


Repair Quilt – FINISHED!

 

 Old Timey Baby Quilt – FINISHED!

 

Star Wars Quilt – FINISHED!

I got the quilting and binding done this weekend, just in time for Al to claim it for his own. ❤

Top Finished


Triangle Jellyroll Quilt – Progress!

I’ve got my backing ready, I just need to get this basted to get things moving!  I also ironed this again over the weekend to make things a little easier.  The only thing is that I have some extra triangles, so I’m deciding if I want to add them to the back somehow.

 

Splash Quilt

This top is finished!  Now I just need to assemble the backing, quilt and bind! 😀  Since this pattern was called “splash” and it makes me think of a goldfish in a pond, I chose a fabric that has little fishtails coming out of water. (Michael Miller, Into the Deep, Surf Side)

 

Triangles Quilt – PROGRESS!

This top is DONE!  It didn’t take nearly the time I thought it would, and I figured a good way to chain piece those little triangles, which helped a lot.  I’ve already got the backing picked out, and I’m deciding if I want to use some left over triangles to make a really scrappy binding or a binding that is the same as the back.

Blocks Started


Starburst quilt

I’ve gotten lots of the blocks sewn, and I’ve just got to keep sewing on them! 🙂

 

This isn’t a final color layout, this is just to get an idea of how many blocks I need to sew in each direction.

 

 

 

 

This is the final Finish it Fall update!  I’ve had a lot of fun, and don’t you worry, Friday I’ll be coming out with something new.  I can’t just leave these unfinished quilts incomplete, so I’m going to start up my new goals, Winding up Winter! 🙂  Stay tuned to follow along on the quilts!
