Q1 FAL - Finishes!

Way back in January, I joined the Q1 Finish A-Long and declared a few goals for this quarter.

So, how did I do?

The Solids Quilt - Done!

Circa 1934 charm pack quilt - Done!

French General charm pack quilt - Done!

Apparently I hit save instead of publish on this one.  (bad blogger!)  Thanks to everyone's suggestions to try matchstick and straight-line quilting, I was inspired.  Though I added a bit of a twist to it.  For scale - the back is made from leftover charm squares.

The Circle Game
While it doesn't look like much progress has been made, I'm happy with what's been accomplished.  It's not done, but many of the centres that were waiting on applique are done.  Plus, I've finished the back!


Another one that isn't done, so it doesn't count for the FAL, but I'm thrilled with the progress.  This one has been a UFO for over a decade....

All in all, a successful quarter.

If you'd like to see how everyone did with their Q1 FAL goals, check out the link-up.


  1. yay for all your finishes! Love the quilting on your French General quilt! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts. Next quarter link each of your finishes separately for more chances at prizes! ;-)

  2. Wow you finished a lot! How about some close ups of the quilting on that first quilt?? Great progress with your circle game blocks :0)
