Q3 Finish-A-Long list

Really, where does the time go. I cannot believe that we are on Quarter 3 and I haven't even finished my Q1 list. But I have been sewing a ton of things that are not on my list. 'Write it down and get it done' has taken a back seat. I somehow feel that this time my sewing will be focused on the list first. Most of it from my Q1, that I didn't finish or even started.
 1.
Outfit for daughter
2. 
Hst baby quilt- backing selected, need to be quilted and binded.
3. 
HST quilt - Border added, backing selected, need to be quilted and binded

4. 
Need to sew a motivational quote and finish edges and make it hangable.
5. 
Wall hanging using the wedge ruler.

Laptop sleeve


Again I took so long to sew a project on my Finish-A-Long list. But I sewed a bunch of coasters, key wristlets and Holiday Banners. Today I did finish the laptop sleeve (FAL#4). Originally I sew it a couple of months ago and itturned out a little too tight to get the laptop in and out.  Its for my daughter and both of us loved the fabric we chose for this project. So had to rip it all out and added borders to make it bigger.

Q2 Finish-A-Long goals.

I cannot believe I have not posted anything since January and my Q1 Finish-A-Long in not even half done. I finished two projects from my list but didn't write a post on them or post pictures even. I messed up on my tunic project and need to figure out how to make it wearable. Hopefully Q2 will be different and productive. Here is my list for Q2 some carried over from Q1:

1. Border added, backing selected, need to quilt and bind 

2. Need to embroider motivational quote & finish edges.

3. Need to add a border, choose backing, quilt and bind.

4. Laptop sleeve- front, back and lining materials
5. Cozy for kitchen-aid mixer - 
Not sure what fabric to use. I am thinking may be a solid fabric with applique on it.

Ironing board cover

I followed this tutorial to make the ironing board cover with this  clothespin fabric. Before I realized I had this fabric I made one with a upholster weight fabric I had lying around. I also used insulbright as padding. Now the padding is sandwiched between the fabrics and gives a nice surface to iron and as an added bonus its double sided.
The top cover with elastic inside a bias binding channel.
The first cover using upholstery weight fabric. the edges are folded to make channel for a tie. I used selvages as tie.

Insulbright layer between the fabrics, sewn to the bottom fabric.  Ignore the date here, I went ahead and changed it on the camera. 

You can see both the fabrics here and my little ones feet. I still need to figure out how to change the time setting to normal clock hour and not railway time.

Finish Along Q1 goals

These are my goals for the 2016 Finish Along Quarter 1. I have already started on 3 quilts in November and December to get a head start on all my New Year projects. I am so glad I did that because I was sick for the first week of January and these quilts actually kept my spirits and hopes up. As soon as I get my energy back I am hoping to finish these quilts and at least get half of the other projects on my list.

Finish Along Quarter One Goals:

1. HST baby quilt

2. Another HST baby quilt

3. Baby quilt 3

4. Embroidery project. 

5. Garment, probably a tunic

6. Another tunic perhaps

7. Churidar Kameez for daughter
