A Finish and a FAL Report

I finished this quilt last weekend, but just didn't have the weather to get a good pic of it ...




so this morning with the sun shining I finally got it out there



This is my Overs and Unders quilt, a pattern from Scrap Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett

and I am thrilled with how it turned out! 


it has a few grubby finger prints on it, but that's ok, it will wash no problem!

so this was on my Qtr3 FAL list, so I'm hoping to have snuck this one i under the wire!


Speaking of which, I need to declare my finishes for the Quarter ..

so I declared I would finish 4 things 

#1 Siblings Together Quilt ...  I made progress this is now a completed top, but sadly not finished.


#2 Overs and Unders ....  Woohoooo! We have finished it!  Success!



#3  Table Runner  ...  Yep, another finish, blogged here


and I was teaching with it yesterday!

#4 Swoon Quilt ... nothing has happened with this, it still remains a top that requires quilting and finishing, so a Fail on the swoon front!


so that makes a 50% success rate!

not bad as I have been mega busy, teaching, quilting, making and harvesting

so I am going to link this up with Leanne for Qtr 3 FAL

and better start thinking about my Qtr 4.
(shocking we are that far through the year already!)
