Quarter 3 Finish A-Long Projects

I am linking up some of my hopeful 3rd Quarter Finishes. Unfortunately, I was always too late to enter my hopeful finishes for the other quarters. Therefore, I am trying this 3rd quarter as follows:

1.) Quilt and Bind my Modern Backgrounds Wall hanging. This was in a Sew Sampler Box

2.) Complete this Zipper Pouch. This is A Pouch kit from Sex Lux Fabric
3.) Complete this Zipper Pouch. Also, from Sew Lux

4.) Quilt and Bind this Christmas quilt. This was in my Sew Sampler box last year. I have had the top completed for a while.

5.) Sew this Tote in  Handmade Style by Anna Graham

6.) Finish this Mini that was in my Sew Sampler.

7.) Quilt and Bind this Table Runner. It was the Valentine's Day Special Sew Sampler.

9.) Completely finish this Nest Hexi Door Greeter. I do have it started.
10.) Quilt and Bind this Bed quilt. 
11.) Quilt and Bind this table runner. It was one of the Frivols that I never finished a few years ago.

12.) Quilt and bind this table cover. It was, also one of the Frivols. 

13.) Quilt and finish this pillow top. This was a Turning Leaves Pillow from Moda Bake Shop by Jen Daly
14.) Quilt and Bind this Mini from Simple Whatnots by Kim Diehl
16.) And/or this Redwood Tote by Noodlehead
17.) And/or this Caravan Tote by Noodlehead
19.) Quilt and Bind this Threadology Quilt Along quilt

I'm sure I will not anywhere near too many of these completions, especially since I have a quilt along going, also. However, I now have many options. In reality, I'll be glad if I get a couple of them done. I am linking this list to 3rd Quarter Goals at CapitolaQuilter

New Gingham Tote to come

For my July goal at Elm Street Quilts, I want to complete this Gingham Tote from Noodlehead's "Handmade Style" book.

These are the fabrics that I have chosen. 

I do have the tote started. I am making the one with the 2-zippered pockets and I am using leather straps for the "grab straps". I'm looking forward to having this completed so that I can use it on a camping trip in mid-July.  It will be nice to sling over my shoulder while walking. Where we are going around Lake Erie, we do a lot of walking and will stop at some shops. It looks like I can add some items to it while shopping.

Little Snippets Threadology Quilt Top

I finished my Threadology Quilt Top this month. I am very happy with how it turned out.

I had chosen to finish this quilt top as my June One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. Here is my initial post: June OMG

Also, I am happy to say that I finished the Quilt Backing, too.

Threadology Quilt Back

I had a slight cutting error on the back. I made the quilt top somewhat larger than what the pattern said so I cut the charcoal gingham slightly larger, at first, too. I did not pay attention to the pattern and cut 2 pieces of the charcoal gingham and I needed to cut 4 pieces. Then, of course, I did not have enough fabric left for the side above that is on the right.

I think it will work, though. To keep everything centered, I will only have about 2 inches left on the short side of the backing. I will have to be very precise when I baste the layers together. I'm going to make marks where the center of the quilt top should be and hopefully, the back will be straight.

I am looking forward to quilting this but not right now. I have a few other items to work on in the meantime. Plus it is Summer and I'm not in the house as much.

Having a quilt top done for June

I am choosing my June One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts to complete my Threadology Quilt Top. These are my completed Blocks.

Block 1-Ohio Star

Block 2-Nine Patch

Block 3-Shooting Squares

Block 4-Churn Dash

Block 5-Royal Star

Block 6-Fair & Square

Block 7-Economy

Block 8-Cross with a Cross

I have a couple camping trips planned this month so I won't have too much time for quilting. However, completing this quilt top seems doable.
