Five Finishes for First Quarter FAL

It is once again time to link up for the Q1 FAL list hosted by Katy @ The Littlest Thistle. Back in January I listed a few things that I would like to do and I am happy to say that I have completed the majority of them.

1. First up is a project that I have selected fabrics for but didn't really get a look in this quarter - maybe next time...
2. Feathers quilt - it is too hot during summer in Australia to tackle a big quilt so I am really hoping to get these blocks sewn together and quilted in the cooler months which are coming up.
3. SSM4 project: this Noodlehead Super tote and crochet roll up were mailed off at the end of January to my partner.

4. I stitched up a pair of comfy lounge pants using this pretty DS fabric.
5. This ottoman was made using a tutorial by Made By Rae which I pinned a while ago. The fabric I used was a fun drill in a chair print - my cat seems to think it was made just for him and has claimed it as his own so it is already covered in grey kitty hairs:( 

6. I used my favourite black denim, along with some AMH feathers linen to make one of Anna @ Noodleheads fabulous divided fabric baskets and have already filled it up with some FQ.
7. I ended making a couple of items for the Pantone Radiant Orchid challenge - a scrappy Swoon "Soft Kitty" pillow and a Giant Starburst quilt. These pinks and purples have certainly grown on me:)
So with 5 out of 7 projects finished, I am linking up once again to the Q1 2014 FAL with Katy at The Littlest Thistle.
Finish Along 2014


  1. You have some of my favorite projects (of yours) on this list! Love the lounge pants (fab finish!) and the feather supertote (gorgeous!). I can't wait to see your full finished feathers quilt. It's going to be so beautiful!

  2. You've achieved so much Kirsten! Looks like your cat's doing a good job of looking after your next project! And I love both your Pantone projects!

  3. You did a great job, but isn't all your furniture there just for the cat? ;o)

  4. You've been busy, Kirsten. Lots of lovely projects :)
