Finish A Long Q4 - The list of shame

So after an aborted attempt to do a list via Instagram I thought I'd go old school and do a blog post. This required a bit of time this afternoon digging through the WIP basket and around the WIP basket as it was over flowing a tad.  I discovered things I'd erased from my mind I'd forgotten all about. Things I'd quite like to get finished. Here goes:

1. Fancy Dr Who Scarf - no optimistic of a finish because I have to generate left overs to add to this!

2. Birdie panel made by the last bee I was in. Wanted to make this into a cushion but I'm not sure it's a suitable shape or whether one of the panels would hold up to being a cushion as it has some raw edge applique and it looks like it's applied with fabric glue?

3. X&+ quilt. Totally doable she says bravely. It's about half done top wise.

4. Highland Coo panel to turn into a cushion

5. Hexie flowers to turn into a knitting project bag.

8. Panel that needs turning into a cushion

9. Four identical bags, interfacing and snaps in their own plastic bags. Destined to become a little shoulder bag.

16.  Liberty Apple Core sewing organiser - (I'd have finished this at the weekend but I can't find my rotary cutter. The one in the picture is an old one and blunt!)

17. PJ Bottoms. I made these in class at the Fat Quarterly retreat. I think they only need length sorting and hemming - presuming they still fit because I think these were from 2013!

18. Scrappy Trip Quilt. I'd got some suitable strips left from making Chiefs quilt and had cut some more and started to sew them together. But then I ran out of steam!

19. My precious large star quilt. About 6 - 7 years ago these large star quilts were every where and I pulled some precious fabric started cutting and even got the back ground fabric in a zingy shade of Klona. But then I couldn't work out how to cut the blocks well given the size would be larger than my cutting mat!

20. Low Volume blocks - had visions of a vintage/modern heritage style quilt in low volume colours with the odd pop of colour.

21. Three Way Wrap knit.  Those last few inches are taking forever

22. Christmas place mats. I completely forgot to find these and photograph. But I'll add them on here I don't want to forget to get on with these before Christmas!

  2. Good luck!!! (For the bird block with the raw edge applique, is it stitched round all the raw edges? If so, it should hold up fine to being a cushion, particularly if you do some quilting on the applique bits.) Hope you find your rotary cutter soon!

  8. Woah! This is a lot of projects all at once. You have a lot of low hanging fruit though. Hem the pants and donate them if they dont fit. start sewing low volume blocks into larger blocks, clear out some room for the new vision! yay! Im cheering for you Isisjem.

  10. Yes, Hilary is right. Your shame is my salve (I can't have as many WIP's as she does. Right? I think...I hope.... but who's counting?) You have some beautiful projects in there. I bet you will have one or two finished in no time.
