2014 Finish A Long

I participated in the Finish A Long last year and I really enjoyed having a little motivation to complete some of my many Work In Progress projects.  So it’s the Quarter 2 of the 2014 Finish A Long and I am signing up the following projects with  Katy  @ The Littlest Thistle.

1.  Grandma’s Star.


Grandma Star Collage

I hand pieced this top last year and I now need to  finish hand quilting this 1930s reproduction quilt and put on some binding.  I am hoping to finish it off this quarter.


2.  Triple Irish Chain

I would like to complete the pieced borders, baste and then hand quilt.  If I  finish the top by Q2 and then hand quilting in Q3 I will be very happy.  If I spread some of the activities across two quarters at least I will be making progress!


3.  Green Tea & Sweet Beans

I would also like to work on my Green Tea & Sweet Beans quilt and I am definitely hoping to make a few more blocks this quarter:

These projects are mostly hand pieced, appliqued and/or hand quilted and entering them in the Finish A Long helps to keep me focused and motivated.  Many thanks Katy for hosting the 2014 Finish A Long @ The Littlest Thistle!  Stop by Katy’s blog and check out all the fabulous projects.

  1. lots to do here and with hand quilting it takes time. I have two ready to quilt and two more that I will be getting ready in the next few days but not sure how to quilt!!! There is a great deal about making the blocks etc but very little on quilting

  2. Your quilts are always so special!!! I don’t know. How you accomplish them all with so much hand piecing and appliqué. Hard to choose a favorite here as I can’t wait to see theGreen Tea together but I always love stars and the 30’s repros are perfect here! Did you EEP the stars?

  3. Wow Marie your Grandmas Stars and Triple irish chain quilts are amazing I can’t wait to see progress. Good luck

  4. Such beautiful quilts! I love the 30’s prints so much. The piecing is spectacular and can’t wait to see how you hand quilt it. Be sure to show it off. =)

  5. Oh I love the pattern you’ve done. It reminds me of overlapping owl feathers! I am not a quilter. All I can do is hand sew dollies and curtains. So I am always in awe of intelligent and creative ladies like you who can do it all!
