Finish-Along Q2 2020

1.  (Q3 2015)  I'm making a low-volume and turquoise version of a scrappy trip around the world quilt and I've made thirty-one blocks so far. Here are twenty-four of them!

2. (Q2 2016)  I have been planning this quilt since at least 2013 and would like to at least make a start on prepping blocks.  (I've been saying that for a while...)  I have a range of backgrounds and some gorgeous Oakshott (Scandinavian, I think).  The block pattern is in the photo and I've already completed a test block.

3. (Q2 2016)  This needs layering and pinning ready for quilting, once I've bought the wadding and decided on how I'm going to quilt it. I doubt I'll make progress on this for quite a while, but once a project is on my FAL list, it stays on until it's either finished or officially abandoned! (No, they're not two different colours of background, it's just the difference between pieced/unpieced and straight/bias - you don't see it in real life.)

4. (Q4 2016) I'm going to turn this pink pin cord into a round neck pinafore version of the Kate dress:

5. (Q4 2016) This rather 80s winter sports print (it really could be from then as it came out of someone's loft!) is going to become a version of the Kate dress, possibly with a v neck and long/elbow length sleeves.

6. (Q2 2017) The top fabric is going to become a Kate dress:
Boyes strikes again! The fabric at the bottom (a chambray-coloured poplin at £2.45/m) is going to become a toile of the Fancy Tiger sailor top pattern I bought from @charlottesews_destash (possibly with the addition of some pink gingham bias binding as an

7. (Started around October 2012) I’ve made all the nine patch blocks and trimmed all the embroidered blocks to size. My next step is to iron the sashing and background fabric and then cut and attach narrow strips of sashing around the embroidered blocks. Read the stories the stories behind the blocks!

8.  (Q2 2017) I want to make a Christmas quilt (yes, another one!) from these pieces of Winterkist.  I'm going to make a version of Sarah's Stained quilt, with navy sashing (thanks for the idea, Salley!):
The other project I need background for is this lovely collection of Winterkist. I'm going to make a version of @sleepinsarah's Stained quilt (swipe to see the two I've already made) and am trying to decide on a colour for the sashing - any suggestions?

9. (Q2 2017) This Italian lawn is going to become a top version of the Kate dress or a shirt no.1, depending on how I feel when I lay it on the sewing table:

10.  (Q4 2017) The pinafore I made last year needs a lining (it needs a slip under it, but the armholes are too low for the slips I have, so a lining it is):
Pinafore - needs a lining
11. (Q4 2018) Jeans: I’ve tacked together the legs and a trial yoke and waistband and had a fitting. I’m now unpicking all that so I can start sewing them together properly once I’ve cut out all the pieces.

12. (Q1 2020) Cushion for this gorgeous egg cup to turn it into a pincushion:

I think this might be the first quarter ever where I haven't added a new item to the list!!! I'm definitely still a member of the #RidiculouslyLongFALList gang because there's no way I'm finishing all these things in a mere three months!

Mini Archie is, as ever, keeping a close eye on me:
