2016 Finish-A-Long Quarter 3

Quarter 2 of the Finish-A-Long was a success with five out of seven projects finished.  You can read about the five projects here.  Now onto Quarter 3,  here's my current list of hopefuls!

First up is an (mostly) Anna Maria Horner scrappy trip around the world quilt.  I've got all the strips cut and seven out of twenty-four blocks completed.  It takes a good bit of time to make one of these blocks, so I work on it here and there.

Next is a new quilt that uses a fun pattern from Quilt Basket, a local quilt shop in NY.  They have a great concept with fabric bundles called Cutie Collections along with a selection of patterns to use them.  I'm making the Follow My Lead pattern with some Alison Glass fabrics and solid background fabrics.  I don't use a lot of solids so I'm excited to see how this combination works out.

I'm using a bunch of Ana Davis's Pippa collection to make a quilt using a pattern called Big and Tall by Sunnyside Designs.

I've got some new stash treasures from Anna Maria Horner, her Mod Corsage collection.  I got it as a kit with a pattern called Grandma's Garden, so I'll be working on that.  I LOVE these fabrics!

Last on the list are a few zipper pouches using these fun Cotton and Steel fabrics.  I've made a few totes with these fabrics here and here, so matching pouches it is!

This list is pretty ambitious, but it's great to have something to work towards, we'll see how it goes.  I hope you are participating in the 2016 FAL, looking forward to seeing what everyone makes!


  1. I am feeling some fabric-envy here - I love the fabrics you've got for your projects, might have to find me some Anna Marie Horner's...good luck with your goals!

  2. You have some lovely fabrics to play with this quarter! Enjoy! Thanks for linking up to FAL2016 on behalf of your team of hosts

  3. What lofty goals! I'm most excited about the mostly AMH project. I'd love to do one myself, and I'm curious how one with AMH prints will turn out. Her large-scale designs! Those saturated colors! Can't wait for the finish!

  4. Such beautiful projects! I love the Cutie Collection. Good thing Quilt Basket isn't local to me. That could be overly tempting.
