2020 Finish-A-Long :: Q1 Finishes

Can't deny I'm feeling pretty darn good about how my Finish-A-Long quarter went. All three of the projects on my list were long-term, so on one hand it was kind of weird finishing them all up in a relatively short time frame. But all's good!

First up was Begonia, a block-of-the-month from Seattle MQG.

There were months and months of HSTs while the design revealed itself. The pattern is by Stefanie Satterwhite, and was alot of fun to do as a group.

Next was my Summer Sampler 2019.

Gotta say, finishing this one was challenging. At 80" x 92", it helped that I chose a relatively simple quilting design of echoing curves, and finished it in good time. Not sure the last stitch was in before hubby claimed it for himself. So that was nice.

And finally.... two years in the making, my Teeny Tiny Trip Around the World.

Absolutely and completely hand-stitched, it was alternately a joy and a burden, but in the end, I am so pleased and proud of it.

So I felt real relief once those three were done. All quite different, but each a satisfying finish in its own way. Now enjoying seeing what else the year has to offer!


  1. What big projects to get completed, and I enjoy the variety in color palettes used!
