Q3 FAL List

I only completed 2 projects from my Q2 Finish-along list. Following is my Q3 FAL list:
This quilt I have been working on is First on my list to complete.
Going on the list, but I'm not sure I will get this completed. So cute, though.
One more quilt. I do have the quilt top approximately 1/3 complete. Maybe I can finish this one before the end of September. I'd like to.
This is an old Christmas quilt top that a friend gave me. Not a lot of work to finish it. Just need to set my mind to it.
I want to sew a mini from this book. I purchased a stand and I have plenty of fabric to complete one. 
Maybe one or both of these minis. If I get the chance to work on them, I would like to.
7.) The next Bag I would like to sew is Swoon Vintage Donna. Donna Vintage bag by Swoon
I have the pattern, but I haven't decided on the fabric yet. 
8.) Rainbow Clutch from Anna Graham's book Handmade Style I have the book and I would like to sew this clutch. 
9.) Another Poolside Tote also from Anna Graham. I've made one and would like to sew another one. 
10.) Apple Pouch from Playful Little Paper-Pieced Projects. I have this book and have been wanting to sew it. It is on the cover, in the upper left-hand corner. So cute!
11.) I want to complete one or more frivols. As you can see, I have collected the whole year's worth; however, I have only completed one so far, which is here Frivol #3 Finished
12.) 2 Pillowcases for my son for his Birthday. I haven't bought the fabric yet, but will get to that. I always use tutorials from All People Quilt: Free Pillowcase Patterns 
13.) 2 Pillowcases for my own bed. Still need to purchase fabric for this, too.
14.) I might get time to sew the Walkabout Pattern from StudioKatDesigns. I purchased the pattern a while back and would like to make it.
15.) Basil Wall Hanging. I made the Oregano Wall Hanging here Oregano Post. I purchased both of these a while back and would like to sew the Basil one and then hang them both. I need to find Basil amongst my stash and get it done.
16.) If I get the chance to sew one of these pillows, that would be a nice edition to my living room.
17.) I might make one or two of Clover and Violet's The Phoebe Phone Case.
18.) Possibly, I might sew Patchwork Napkins by GenX Quilters . I purchase this pattern quite a while back, but keep forgetting I have it to sew them. I'd like to get a set done.
19.) I might sew Sophia Pouch by Svetlana. I've had this pattern for a while and have not sewn it yet.
20.) This Eve Clutch by ChrisWDesigns. Another pattern that I've had for a while. I do need a clutch.

Of course, I won't get many of these done, but I have them on a list now so that I can refer to and decide what I need to sew the most. Linking up my Q3 FAL List Q3 FAL at A Quilter's Table

July OMG

I had selected completing this quilt for my June OMG. The quilt top is completed, but I need to quilt and bind it. I am now moving this to my July OMG.
I think I got distracted with other projects in June, but for July I am going to concentrate on completing this quilt. Linking to Red Letter Quilts July OMG

Oregano Wall Hanging

Finished this cute wall hanging for my Q2 FAL. Here is the original post Oregano Wall hanging Q2 FAL #6 This is oregano. 

I love herbs and I purchased this quite a few years back when it was on clearance. I bought basil, too, but haven't started it yet. I would like to hang them both together so I haven't hung this yet on my wall.
I'm not really too fond of this technique - fusible applique. The pieces for the kit were all laser-cut. And then I had to fuse them onto the background fabric. I did quilt all of the pieces, but you can't really see by this photo. Linking to Q2 FAL at Clover and Violet

Pittsburgh Pirates Bag

Presenting my Pittsburgh Pirates bag. I completed this to use during the Summer. I go boating and camping and it's good to just toss items in that I will need.

The lining is baseball fabric. 

This is a pattern from Sara Lawson's book Windy City Bags. This is the 2nd bag I have made from this book. Finished this for my 2nd quarter Finish along. Original post is here: Pirates Bag Q2 FAL #3 Linking to 2016 Q2 FAL at Clover and Violet

Aurifil Designer Block of the Month - Cups and Saucers

This is my version of Aurifil block "Cups and Saucers". I think it turned out cute. I have been using 30's-type fabric for my blocks. Although, I've only completed 3 so far. I'm entering this on Pat Sloan's Aurifil designer block by Amy Friend. Maybe I'll go back and sew the ones I missed when I have time.

June OMG

Again, I didn't finish my May OMG in time to post my finish. So, with good intentions, this is my June One Monthly Goal. To quilt and bind this quilt top for my Aunt Mary. I'm not sure when I will give it to her, but, at least I'm trying to finish it in June.

The top is finished, but I'll just wait until I complete the quilting and binding to post a picture. I think it's a nice throw size quilt to just get warmed up with on the couch.
