2013 FAL - Q2 list

Before it's too late, here's the list of projects I'm hoping to finish this quarter. Short again and hopefully completely achievable this time.

1. Known to you from Q1 list, this is the second little quilt I've been making from the Skill Builder Sampler blocks. As the batting arrived I was able to quilt it, so now I only need to prepare and sew the binding.

2. Also known from Q1, and this one still needs almost everything: borders to make it bigger, backing, quilting and binding.

On a technical note  - this might have to wait till May, at least as far as quilting is concerned, since the shops here in Poland I buy batting from will have it only in then. I started investigating the possibilities of buying the batting abroad but I still have to compare the costs. I only ever tried quilters dream cotton batting in select loft but I like it very much and wouldn't really want to use anything thinner, I'm also not convinced about polyester. 

3. This is not a true UFO, but I'm already behind with sewing these two blocks in the Forest QAL and since I really want to see them finished, I thought adding them to the list will give me some additional encouragement. Hope they still qualify.

4. This one has been started only recently, but I've been planning it for ages. I don't care much for aprons, but every time I've had a pile of dishes to wash or bread to bake I've been dreaming of the perfect apron with just the right shape and a pocket (I love listening to audio books). I've found what I hope to be the perfect apron shape in Lotta Jansdotter's book, and a pocket will be easy enough to add.

It might a be a bit hard to see in the photo, but the other side, which I still need to cut, will be reddish brown (shh, I know, I know).

  1. Lovely projects but No 2 is still my favourite.

  2. Great projects sweetie, really excited about the Forest QAL blocks, they'll be gorgeous!

  3. I have an apron that I love. - when I wear it I cook better

  4. You can do it! We're in this together ; )

  5. This is a lovely list, you will have the best time sewing. I don't like polyester batting, and stick with cotton, although I do hope to try bamboo one day soon. I think that there are online sources but it might be costly on the shipping.

  6. Lovely variety of projects A! Good luck.
