2016 Finish Along - Quarter 2!

It seems like such a long time ago that I set my goals for Q2 in the 2016 Finish Along. I went a little crazy (for me) and went with six goals. Five out of six actually got finished. Yay me!

Goal 1 - Layer, quilt, and bind my Cotton + Steel Christmas quilt. ZILCH!!!
Alas, I have made very little progress on this project. I did manage to sew the backing together and match the seams. Not too shabby if I do say so myself! This one will be at the top of my list for Q3.

Goal 2 - Layer, quilt, and bind Tula Tigers for T. ACHIEVED!!!
You can read all about the finish here.

Goal 3 - Quilt DT's I Spy Polaroids!  ACHIEVED!!!
I love, love, love this finish! DT play with it every day. They're learning so many new words thanks to these fun little Polaroids. You can read all about the finish here.

Goal 4 - Zissertwin pillow, inspired by Daylily Daze ACHIEVED!!!
And it's been delivered to its new home. Check out this post for more info.

Goal 5 -Piece and quilt all remaining blocks for Technicolor Galaxy. ACHIEVED!!!
Pieced, quilted, trimmed, ready for assembly! I kicked ass on this goal! Check out this post for the latest on Technicolor Galaxy.

Goal 6 - Thistle ACHIEVED!!!
Not only did I finish Thistle, but I also made Wee Thistle. She accompanied me to Glamp Stitchalot and met some new friends! You can read about it all here. You may notice that Thistle is unbound. I'm still calling her finished since the goal was to make a souvenir for Glamp!

I'll be linking up all my finish posts over at She Can Quilt!
