Q1 FAL Goals COMPLETE!!! -- WIP Wednesday 4.1.15

I'm super happy to have TWO complete finishes this week!

On January 8, 2015 I planned to finish four quilts for the 2015 Finish Along (FAL) for the first quarter (Q1)  How'd I do?  See for yourself...

1.  Urban Churn Dashes (baby quilt)  This was project is still in the block making process.

Woot woot!  I finished this quilt on March 28, 2015!  You can read more about it here.

  The back shows the Circle Lord Egyptian Eye quilting.  LOVE this template!

2.  Scrumptious Butter Churn (quilt)  Blocks are done; sashing to begin--this is where it was then.

I finished this quilt yesterday, 3/31/15.  Here's the final result:


I happy to finally be linking up with Richard & Tanya

3.  Plaid Patches (table topper)  This was quilted this week.  It needs binding!

Plaid Patches turned out super cute!  I finished the 27" square table topper on January 9.  See here.

 4.  Quilt Doodle Design BOM.  The top needed to be completed by my blog hop day of 1/26.  It needed borders, a back, and longarmed.

Another fun finish.  This quilt was finished just in time for the blog hop on January 26, 2015.  It is made of all 2.5" scraps.  What a fun way to use up those scraps!  Read more here.

I'm so happy I finished all four goals.  I linked each individual post up with Adrianne at On The Windy Side.
