Where I share my projects; the progression from start to finish (often with more in the starting department, and less in the finishing)

Sorting through the Stash
Decided over the weekend that if I emptied out all my containers with fabrics in, and assessed the whole pile as a complete unit, there may be a quilt hiding within. This was the result - can't decide whether it is good or bad!
Also had a bit of a look through some of my unfinished projects... this one was my bright idea to reduce left over bits from other projects, and I sewed it as a leader/ender while doing another project. I think there is enough sub-blocks to make two large blocks, so ideally would make at least another two blocks to make it "quilt" size.
This one started with a fat quarter bundle and was earmarked for Nadia (back when she was only a few months old - PS she just started school!)... usual story, took a lot longer than anticipated and ran out of fabric for the sashing. Have finished the other 6 blocks, but need to assemble into the quilt as you go format.
This one was started a real long time ago - so long ago I can't even really remember when. First part of it went together pretty well, first attempt at needle turn applique, and then came the paper foundations... what a bore! Still have 23 or something blocks to finish off which form a border around the central unit (see 3 completed along one side).
Last one for today... once again started as a bundle of fat quarters which I then pulled huge amounts of my stash to go with it. Very satisfying! This is unfortunately only about 1/4 of the quilt design, every intention to finish it one day.
Why have I decided to share these with you? In the hope that sharing will encourage finishing. Or at least help me keep track of what is going on.
