Almost last minute...

...but yay, I'm going to the FQ Retreat and I can't wait to meet you all!

I'm not sure if you get a chance to see this post before the FQR, but just in case you do, here's something that could help you recognize me:

Ok, ok, I won't be wearing headphones (although I usually do while I sew and quilt - I love audiobooks), you will also notice that I don't have short hair but a plait.
And I'll be sporting the cutest badge ever. Thank you so very much Sarah xxx. 
Oh, and my name is Agnieszka, which might not be an easy name to pronounce, but quite easy to recognize, I think.

For a bit of background  - I started quilting less than 3 years ago (it was also then I learned how to use a sewing machine) and I still feel quite a newbie (maybe an advanced beginner by now). Of course that doesn't prevent me from making quilts and enjoying the process immensely.
If you feel like checking them out, they're here on the blog.

So, see you soon to those who are coming, and huge warm hugs to those who can't make it this year - I'm sure we will finally meet, too.

(And this is the small print where I tell you that I'm shy, but I've read that many others are too...)



Just one

Can you believe it?
I only have one UFO and it's not a very old one, either.
So, here is the shortest ever list for 2013 Finish-A-Long (Q3):

1. Finish the broken wheel quilt (and possibly find a nicer name for it).

Of course with 38 more blocks to go, not to mention the sashing, backing, quilting and binding, there's probably enough work for this quarter, but still one item on the list feels weird.

And hopefully there's still enough time to actually link this up.

Q2 finishes - 2013 Finish-A-Long

I might have been quite clever to make my list for Q2 (here's the original post) very short, that way I can feel as if I've achieved something.

So, let's sum it up:
  • The smaller sampler quilt only needed binding and it got it.

  • The wonky kites quilt needed borders, backing, quilting and binding and it was a successful finish, too, and the quilt is now at its new owner's.

  • The apron needed to be sewn together and to have a pocket added, and it was actually the first finish of Q2.

  • And this leaves us with the 2 blocks from Forest QAL, of which I finished only one.

Then, instead of making the rest of the forest blocks, I made a quilt with what I had:

I'm not sure if this can count as a proper finish for this particular goal, but it makes the post end in a nice picture, don't you think?
