2017 FAL (Finish Along) Q4 – Joining in the Fun

For those of you following me here is where we are:  the house is under agreeement and closing on October 27th.  We have ALL our furniture and my quilting room is in reasonable (not finshed) shape.  I can work now pretty freely.

So, I am turning my mind to what I will finish in the 4th Quarter.  I am not counting the already finished but needing a label quilt!

1.  Free Falling Leaves – quilting, binding, labels, hanging sleeves

2.  The alphabet quilt:  Hand binding, sleeve and label

3.  2 Sew together bags – some construction done, but they just need to be finished

4.  The Loon – some construction done:  Assembled, quilted, bound and labeled.

5.  And finally, finish organizing my space. 

Linking up with:  2017FAl 4th Quarter

    These look like great goals. I like the free fall quilt. I worked on it as well and will probably quilt it in the new year.

      I love that quilt, and happily mine was sold at our guild show. Need to do a little update on the blog, but I am behind (witness the lateness of this response). Thanks for stopping by, Lisa.

    I agree, you have some good goals planned! I like the FreeFall quilt too, such pretty colors! Hope the organizing gets finished quickly, so you have more time for sewing!

      The organizing is nearly accomplished and the jet lag is nearly gone! Upward and onward I hope!

    Good progress on the creative and home front. I was so excited to see your post in my feed and for a brief moment thought there was another Freefall QAL. I'm seriously think of doing one in Fall colors.

      I do wish there was another, as I have enough fabric for one more…waiting to be re-stashed. May have to make another! We could do it together if you decide…in the new year.

      Thanks, two are done and sold! Now on to the other projects and my UFO list. Things have calmed down on the homefront, so I think I can do it!

    Okay I feel like I read this and commented…wee-ooh, wee-ooh, Twilight Zone calling… I remember the Freefall quilt (of course) and seeing the one against the headboard as well as the glimpse into your closet, hmm! Glad to hear just now of good news regarding Freefall!! 🙂

      And how late, I have been, getting to these responses. I have a few blog entries I lined up in my travel to and from England so now for a little uninterrupted desk time and sewing time.
