Quarter #2 for FAL: Seven Projects!

Dexter, the wonder pup, is helping me organize my FAL projects for the second quarter.
"Hurry and finish these up so you have more time to play with me!"
For FAL Quarter #2 Projects:
 I have to quilt this quilt:
"My Favorite Things"
And quilt this one:
"My Tweets"
And hand quilt this one:
"Hexagon Quilt"
I need to finish this autumnal themed donation quilt:
 I need to finish this Cathedral Windows Quilt:
I need to work on the blocks for the Folk Art Quilt. I have finished block number eight and am well on my way with block number nine. Perhaps I will finish the rest of the blocks this quarter! I only have six more to go.
There is also that pesky label to make for the U is for Unicorn quilt that I need to get done!

So that makes seven projects on the list for this second quarter. This week, I also found a few more UFO's that I had forgotten about! There is an owl quilt for my oldest son, and the Charlie Brown Christmas quilt. I will save those for another quarter though. 

To be clear, I have these seven projects entered for Quarter #2:
Folk Art Quilt
Cathedral Windows Quilt
My Tweets Quilt
Hexagon Quilt
My Favorite Things Quilt
Label for U is for Unicorn Quilt
Autumnal Donation Quilt

Let the fun begin for FAL's Quarter #2!!!

Happy Sewing Y'all!

WOW! Your tweets quilt looks so good! I love the cheeriness of it. I am so impressed with your applique'. I would love to get that good, but am just too lazy. You cathedral windows is also very cheerful. The diagonal setting (trip around the world style??) is great. Will you use regular quilting thread or Perl Cotton on your hexie quilt?

Thanks Jaye. I do enjoy my appliqué work. I do a little at a time and it takes over a year to do each quilt....just to get it to the stage where it will be quilted! It was a fun BOM.
I love that Cathedral Windows too. I used Moda precut strips for the colors. It makes me happy to look at it!
And the hexagon quilt is being quilted with Guterman's hand quilting thread. That is a heavier thread than I'd use in a machine. That quilt was also pieced by hand. When it is finished, it will not have been touched by any machine!!! I am stitching around the inside of each and every hexi too! Yes, I am certifiable. hahahaha
Thanks for stopping by!
