Q4 Finish A Long

In October I sat down ( or stood at the counter - it was a long time ago - who can remember?)  and decided it was time to make some Progress on the Plaid -  ( that is the link to my list)

Today.... I am checking in.... if you are tired of plaid - I am so sorry!  And not to worry ! I have started at least Two new plaid quilts.... to annoy you ( and my boys )

My first goal was Plaid #4 ( or Patchwork Times - Sunny Side Up)
This is where it was in October......

And here is where it is now! Done! Bound, labeled, ready to be washed! It will be ( or it is?) A Quilt of Valor.   http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2014/12/plaid-4-finished.html


The next one on my list was this top - It was quilted and waiting to be bound. That process ALWAYS slows me down - someday I will remember it is not all that hard......

Here it is - All Finished :  http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2014/11/plaid-string-quilt-with-twist.html


And I just can't resist to show the backing - I just LOVE the Looney Tunes on it!!!



My last goal - was this Pineapple Plaid.... it was just blocks... a pile of not enough blocks:




And I kept working on it - and working on it.... and Ta-da!!! It is now topped. quilted, bound and we braved the snow to take a photo!!  http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2014/12/goal-3-friday-finish.html

This one was just under the wire.... I wanted them all done before Christmas - but Christmas beat me! And I finished it on the 26th!

I am ready to start the new quilting year now!!! Enjoy!!

Fantastic finishes and I'm definitely not tired of plaid. The backing started me off singing, "We're tiny, we're tuney, we're all a little (quilt) looney!" Happy New Year!

I'm going to miss that pineapple quilt at the breakfast club, so glad you have more to work on. Happy New Year to your family and the eagle.

Way to keep it real! Those plaids are screaming for someone to cuddle up in them!

Kate said...

All your plaid quilts turned out beautifully. You definitely showed that plaid works in just about any setting. Congrats on all the finishes.

A Nudge said...

Three gorgeous finishes - WOW! Congrats on getting them done. I like those plaids in there.

All 3 of these quilts are wonderful. When you learn the trick to tell your brain that basting, quilting and binding isn't so scary please pass it along. MY brain completely shuts down at that point and goes into "what to piece next" mode!

Really love your plaid pineapple! You made some gorgeous quilts. I went to your sales page and saw some more really beautiful ones. You do very nice scrappy work.

They're all gorgeous but I think the string quilt might just be my favourite - it's like looking through a kaleidoscopic and its stunning!
