My FAL 2016 Quarter Four list!

Finish A Long 2016

This is the last quarter of the year people and I have lots left on my huge list of last quarter.  I did finish 18 projects which sounds great until I mention that there were 46 projects on my list!

I regret to say I can use the exact same mosaic for my own quilts as I have only worked on two and they are not finished...progress on those two below

Working clockwise:
1. Double Wedding Ring aka Hoopla Quilt - a f:inished top; 2.  KLT applecore and 3. Alhambra quilt (not yet finishe tops); 4. Bring Me Flowers (2 blocks); 5. Oakshott Christmas candy quiltlet (an idea and FQ bundle);  6. Britt's quilt - being handquilted;  7. 2016 Scraptastic Sampler - a finished top; and  8. Greek Cross baby quilt needs a bit more quilting and some bits need requilting; 

Here is my meagre progress on the two quilts I have worked onThe finished top (unless I add a border) of my scraptastic sampler now looks like this:

And I have managed some handquilting on Britt's Quilt, which now looks like this

Next up are the quilts I'm making for the charity Siblings Together - I did finish three quilts last quarter and I made a start on two.  Here is my updated mosaic which also has a new start inspired by the lovely house blocks donated to the charity at Stitch Gathering, and I have decided to make my Trellis blocks into a quilt for the charity:

Working clockwise: 9. Trellis quilt ; 10/11 Circles quilt x 2; 12. Butterflies ; 13. Superhero quilt ; 14. Houses quilt

Clothes making is my new (or rather renewed) interest!   I did get a few things made last quarter but a few remained and have now been joined by some new ones (I may even have more than these - yes I have got a bit carried away  confess):

And of course I had to add a few new ones!  Though I should give upholstery a go!
