2018 FAL Q2 list


I don't want to miss the opportunity to join in for Q2 so I made up my list. Two projects from previous quarter plus a new challenge which I named for myself as "save the basket"


- love wall hanging is all quilted and the binding is also ready


- there was no progress on Echino bag but I really need a new bag :)


That is the basket I'm going to save :) Laundry basket which is filled with clothes to be repaired and some UFOs as well.


- animal wall hanging, some of you might remember this project which I started a long time ago. I do have the back side as well and the batting ready. I just need to take next step baste+quilt it.


- optical illusion, project I made as part of Pantone challenge


- bears, there is also a box filled with leftovers to be used. The plan was to make some bears out of it.


I decided to keep a track of all quarters this year. Those crossed off projects look so good :D and any progress is good!

The 100 day project - part 1


This month I found new project to follow. It's on IG and it is called #the100dayproject


I haven't heard about it before. I made very quick decision to join in. It's up to you what you choose to do for 100 days. I have drawers filled with partially finished projects or bits and pieces awaiting to be used. So every day I pull out something and work on it for a while. It is challenging since I usually do it later in the evening but I have some finishes already.


This mat or mug rug was quilted and just waited to be bound.


Done.


I found block made from leftovers and turned it into pouch.


Pink birds used to be framed as decoration for girls room. I paired it with dots fabric and it became pouch as well.


My latest project is sewed up from selvages. Cutlery pouch for my colleague! As usual I used long zipper to create handle. So far so good.

Q1 - vinyl pouches


I was putting these precut pouches off since I was lazy to change my needle and thread. Finally I pull them out and finished them.


My rainbow line is now complete. I started those since the first batch of pouches were scrappy and had different sizes as well. Anyway I made too many and wanted to keep them so I added another rod into my space.


I don't think I'll be making any more of these. Not all of them are filled. I'll be working on filling them up next :)


These are part of my FAL list and my current score is 4/6 and I'm hoping to squeeze another finish or two in :))

Q1 - pig cushion


Pig cushion is finished. Time to check another project of my FAL list. 3/6 is my current score.


I wasn't sure how to quilt it so anyhow was the way to go :)


When I plan to use cover as gift I like to bind the edges inside. No threads sticking out anywhere.


The only disadvantage of such binding is the corners are not perfect as there is a little bulk inside.


I'm fine with that though. The back is plain and simple.

OMG - 03


I'm keeping up with the trend I set this year. Each month I'll try new tutorial as my OMG goal.
This time Magic pouch tutorial caught my eye. Imagine two zippers on one pouch :)


I'm going to use these lovely Echino fabrics. I just love the texture of linen.
