Q3 FAL to do list...

As always, I have so many projects that I want to do and then I keep finding more things to make along the way. So I have a mix of large (quilts), medium sized (bags), and smaller (mini quilts) projects on my list for this quarter.
1. Road Trip Case : this is one of Anna @ Noodlehead's patterns and I have some fun fabrics (above) selected to make this. I haven't sewn with clear vinyl before so this might be interesting...
2. Red Letter Day quilt - the quilt top is done so I just need to decide on how to quilt it. 
I have some lovely Bliss dots flannel here ready for the backing which is incredibly soft and cuddly.
3. And I would like to sew up a Red Letter Day mini block using a fussy cut Lizzy House Constellations print for the centre .
4. Super Tote: Another of Anna's fabulous patterns, this is a gift for a friend who is celebrating a special birthday this year - her favourite colour is green so I have a few prints selected already which I am going to team with some blue denim.
5. Whilst I was looking in my stash recently, I came across another unfinished project which I hope to get done. The "Phoebe" pattern is by Melly and Me and makes up a cute elephant soft toy.
6. The Poolside tote pattern was released earlier this month and although we are in the middle of winter here, I thought I'd get ready for summer by making one:) I have chosen some pretty coral canvas for the outside and a cute Lisette ice cream print for the handles and lining.
7. AMH Feathers quilt: This one has been on my list for the past few quarters and I am really hoping to get it finished this time. I have quite a lot of feather blocks here which were made by my lovely fellow AusModBee members last year so this will make a nice Queen sized quilt.
8. I started these mini quilts for a friend a while ago and need to get them finished and mailed to her. I used one of the "Spell it with Moda" letter patterns for the "T" and the mini "Round and Round" pattern by Camille Roskelley for the other.
 9.  I just bought the Amy Butler Weekender pattern and I would really like to do a QAYG version using my Chicopee scraps. As well as the Weekender bag support group on flickr, there are plenty of great tips in the Weekender sew-along hosted by Love by Hand,  Modern Handcraft  and Chrissy at Sew Lux (who BTW made the fabulous version Camille had on her trip out here to Australia recently) which I have been studying as this bag is notoriously tricky!
10. Another fun QAL that has just been announced that I would like to participate in -  the Sea Breeze mini is a nice little quilt which is made of HST and squares. Not sure if I will do the whole 9 blocks though so I have picked colours for 4 to begin with...

Linking up with the 2014 FAL hosted by Katy at The Littlest Thistle.


  1. Crikey, you set the bar high! And I think you might have a little problem with a bag addiction, young miss. Might need to see to that!

  2. Hi Kirsten! You have the most fun Fabrics there! I love the little triangels and ice creams! Great projects! All the bags will be Super and your quilt tops are so beautiful! x Teje

  3. Wishing you the best on your 3QTR goals. Wonderful projects

  4. Your feather quilt is one of my absolute favorite feather quilts of all time! Finish that one, please :) You have a wonderful list here - anything you finish will be a winner with these fabric choices!

  5. oh wow! That is quite a list but what great projects!

  6. You have such a great list, with so many fabulous projects! I find my list is always more successful when I mix the small with the large projects, good luck!

  7. Great list, love the Red Letter Day and the Arrow quilt! Good luck!

  8. You've got some exciting projects in the works! Good luck 😄

  9. Another person who has lots of tips on the Weekender is Jennie at Porch Swing Quilts. She's made about 6 and wants to make more! Where did you find the Bliss yardage?
