QUARTERLYFALQ4 with Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap . With a list of four items, two are finished but the other two are close: stat=50%. I'm so happy that Leanne at She Can Quilt will be carrying the torch in 2013 with FAL, Q1 links up on the 7th. How does time fly by so fast? Here are my FAL mosaics from each quarter and my last post recapping completed projects of 2012:
MONTHLYThe other group I've joined to keep myself on track is A Lovely Year of Finished at Fiber of All Sorts and Sew BitterSweet Designs. Thanks Shanna and Melissa. This is one goal in one month : brilliant if you ask me. Like one foot in front of the other, not so hard when you put it that way. For January I chose Tassels because it rolled from Q2 to Q3 to Q4 without a finish! (I also love Fresh Sewing Day)
WEEKLYOf course WIP Wednesday and Finish it Up Friday are my weekly check in linky parties, the bread and butter of staying the course. I don't make it every time but I sure do try. Hopping around to all of the great blogs is so much fun and I especially love when visitors leave me a comment...hint hint....
I've been on a Madrona Road journey (read more about the challenge here). Not sure what I'll bind or back the quilts in since almost every scrap of fabric has been used up with the three projects.

Madrona Road Project #3
Table Bed Runner Specs:
size: 21"x37" Violet Craft Madrona Road and Michael Miller Cotton Couture Periwinkle
warm and natural cotton batting, pieced and quilted with aurifil thread 50wt on my BabyLock Symphony. Made for The MQG challenge and as a gift for my son's Study Abroad hostess in Argentina. He wanted something made in their flag colors.UPDATED: when he gave it to her she wanted to use it as a Bed Runner instead and since their beds are smaller (especially compared to a California King LOL) I got an iMessage from his showing that it drapes quite nicely and looks very pretty. Linking to the challenge FINISHED flickr group.
