Finish It Up! The Finale

Can it be August 15 already? The past two months have flown by! To be honest, I enjoyed this challenge more than I anticipated. When it comes to quilting, I tend to have more inspiration than I have time. I often start new projects before finishing up old ones. It was very affirming to finish so many projects in such a short space of time.

Over the sixty-two days of the Finish it Up! Challenge, I finished a total of six projects. That means that I finished 35% of the seventeen projects on my list! I had hoped to finish more, but I am still very happy with what I did finish. I would definitely participate in a similar challenge in the future.

Here is my final list of projects:
1.       Yellow Brick Road #1: FINISHED
2.       Yellow Brick Road #2: FINISHED
3.       Unblogable #1
4.       Unblogable #2
5.       Baby’s Color Book
6.       Aqua and Red Table Runner/Unblogable #3: FINISHED
7.       Paris Cats Quilt #1
8.       Batik Kit Quilt: FINISHED
9.       Hexagon Mug Rug/Unblogable #4: FINISHED
10.   Call Me Crazy
11.   Scrappy Nine-Patch
12.   Unblogable #5
13.   Forest Friends Embroidery: FINISHED
14.   Blueberry Pie
15.   Warm Cool Quilt Along

  3. Good work! I like the "unblogable" items, I have a few of those myself. Keep up the productivity!

  4. Love your tally at the end - I'm too chicken to list how many "new" projects I started (and honestly, finished all of those!) during FIU. Great work!

  5. Awesome! I too like your stats at the end! I might just add that to my post later!!
