Finish Along 2016 Q3 Goals: six of one, half a dozen of the other

Nothing new to see here!  

Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other

Top and Back

#1. Remaining at the top of the charts is the Delectable Mountain-Parson Gray quilt for my son which I'm happy to say is closer than ever to being done.  Here's an update shot (above) from the sew day yesterday when I attached the final fabric to the back building it out large enough to finally sandwich and quilt.   BTW: I've promised to make a tutorial for that jumbo sized block because it will make a great baby quilt  44"x47". 
Pillow Sham Parts
#2. The matching shams will be a good place to FMQ practice whatever I intend to do on the quilt and fortunately there were enough spare parts left and I only have to make a few more segments.  

King Clam
#3. It's been nearly two years since I started this quilt for our bed.  The workshop and 12 hour sewing marathon seems like a lifetime ago.  Creating a backing and the thought of quilting this beast has kept it from making it off of the to-be-finished list.  Now that designers are coming out with 108"wide in designs that I like that might be the way to go.

Greek Plus Pus
#4. Speaking of 2014, here's another familiar one.   Made as part of pattern testing for Rossiecrafts and blogged here, I'm thinking the spray baste may have lost its stickiness by now.  This one doesn't have a particular home so there is less guilt about the ongoing WIP status.

#5. & #6. Last but certainly not least - in fact "saving the best for last" applies with no offense to the first four goals. Both of my BeeSewcial  quilts: 2015 Reflection and 2016 Stretch Demin - Let's get Comfortable.
2015 BeeSewcial Blocks

Because my mates made me such amazing blocks and they mean so much I want the composition and quilting to be deserving - which is a lot of pressure!  Here are the links to the challenge 2015 and 2016.  Percolating long enough and time to get on it.

2016 BeeSewcial Blocks

Last quarter I only got one done on my list and a whole lot of other things that weren't.  I'm so happy for the makers of the 677 projects  - check out the linky gallery, you'll be impressed.  Wish me better luck this time.
