Finish It Up- How was your first week?

So how did this week go?  Did you have any finishes? Make progress on any of those quilts?  This has been such a busy week and a HOT one as well!  We have had temperatures over 100 almost all week, and the girls have been at Vacation Bible School.  I have been running around in the heat, and by the end of the day I have been sooo tired!

So here is my second finish of the week!  A ruffle clutch!

This is what I had started with!  

Now I have this super cute clutch that is just perfect for a gift I need!  I used this pattern by Sweet Pea Totes.  It went together well, except I somehow sewed the pocket wrong side up.  I ended up just taking it off since the thought of having to rip this all apart just wasn't doing it for me!

Didn't it turn out cute?

Here is my list again!

1. Ruffle Clutch- Finished!
2. Inset Clutch
3. Coaster Set
4. Maxi Dress
5. Sienna Dress
6. Swoon Mini Quilt- Finished!
7. Modern Meadow Quilt- PROGRESS!
8. 9 Patch Quilt
9. Pinwheel Blocks
10. Fussy Cut Bee Blocks
11. PJ Bottoms
12. Men's Shirt

So I finished a clutch, a mini quilt, and all of my blocks for my queen sized Modern Meadow Quilt are now cut out!  I had really hoped to have my maxi dress finished by today as well, so I am hoping to get to it tonight!

So how did YOU do?  Link up with any finishes or progress that you have made! (I will leave the linky open all week, so that you can all have some time!)  If you don't have a blog, then check in at the Flickr group or comments! It has been so much fun to see people getting excited about finishing up some of their projects!  Remember:  one project at a time!  You can do it!


  1. Darling little clutch! And hope you don't mind - I love the 1-block-swoon quilt! Trying my had at one....

  2. Very nice clutch!! I'm just getting started with this so, I'll get my list together of the projects I need to finish. Then I'll post and link.

  3. WOW!!! Your ruffle clutch is professional looking!

    I struck 2 things off my list...I finished my dad's duffle bag, and the tunic I was working on was a fail, so that's 2 down 6 to go!

    I'm going to commit to finishing one of the quilts next week!

    So glad you're doing this! P.S. How do you do that strike-out over your font?

I've made a list of my FINISH IT projects which are too numberous to count, but three I plan on working on this month include: Rocket Man baby quilt, restart Home Tweet Home applique quilt and assemble the YoYoville quilt. I'll post pics! Thanks for the motivation!!
