To the Finish!

2012 Finish-A-Long

Over at Quilter in the Gap, Rhonda has a pretty clever linky going on. Who among us hasn't been giving some thought to those 2011 projects that are still hanging out waiting to be finished? I know I have. Though not many, I'd really like to get these done in the next month or so. So I'm joining in the Finish-A-Long and will be working at completing the following projects:

At the top of my list is finishing up the Color Block Placemats I am . . . um . . . making my coworker for Christmas. 2011. The good news is two were done in time to give her before Christmas, and she loved them! The not so good news is the other six. But by now I have two more done, two ready to bind, and two that still needed quilted. Progress, but.

Project #2 is putting together the scrappy depression blocks that I swapped in the Scrapbuster Swap last summer. I have 15 blocks, and I have no idea how I'm putting these blocks together into a quilt. But I need to figure that out. Don't want them going too stale in the fabric closet!

Last on the list is Wild Thing by Thimble Blossoms. It's been on the list for a while, and yahoo! I have one block made! But after seeing all of the Hometown goodies Heather at Crafting... had made {my personal favorite here}, I really wanted to work with these charms from my stash!

So that's some of what I'll be working on the next little bit . . .
