2016 Finish-A-Long :: Q4 Finishes

My Q4 list seemed quite doable at the time, but creating life what it is, I only finished 3/4. But I'll take it, as I'm really pleased with the 3, and am happy to spend a little more time with the fourth.

1. Bee Sewcial "bacon" quilt - The top was done, but it still needed a backing, quilting, et cetera.

Baconrific was the happy result! Bee Sewcial came through again with awesomely textured blocks. My zany prompt, met with some trepidation, I'm sure, was alot of fun for folks, including me. Can't say this was the easiest one to puzzle together, but a few layered circle "pancetta" blocks helped.

2. Improv log cabin - The top was done, but it also needed a backing, and I was a little overwhelmed by the size, so it admittedly sat for a while.

It was definitely worth waiting for though. Archipelago was made for  QuiltCon's American Patchwork & Quilting Nine-Patch Challenge, but didn't make the cut. I really had fun with it though - especially making the blocks - so whatever.

3. This one was just a stack of fabric, but I knew it had to be done, as it was for Pat Bravo's Heartland blog hop.

Using the giant plus quilt tutorial, by Leanne/she can quilt, I thoroughly enjoyed every step of this one and would love to make another.

4. Its my Seattle MQG improv BOM blocks that are still waiting to be made into a quilt. I know I just need some focused time to mesh the blocks together, and maybe create a border. I got just a little start on it last night, and it's definitely going right back on my 2017 Q1 list for sure.

So that feels like a pretty good quarter, and I'm looking forward to the next!
