1. Haunted House
This is an embroidered Haunted House from The Victoria Sampler. The pattern was only released about Halloween time last year, so I couldn't make it for Halloween 2014, but it will be ready for Halloween 2015 for sure. It may look like I'm almost finished, but assembly takes days of fiddling around with glue and pins. I want it to be perfect, so I'll be taking my time to get all of the sides even before I sew it together.
You can read more about this quilt here. A number of people from Capital Quilters are making quilts like this for our guild's 30th anniversary. Mine is all pieced and I've started hand quilting it. I just need to finish the hand quilting and attach the binding.
3. Tree quilt
This quilt is my first art quilt. Jenny Hunter, the designer, was the guest speaker at our guild meeting in June. She bought along her original version of this quilt and I really liked it. She also had packs of precut shot cottons for sale, so I bought greens and yellows because they were a bit different for me. I've already started quilting it on my new Bernina and I'm really enjoying it.

4. Spinning Stripes
I wrote about this quilt in my last post here. Now the top is all sewn together, and I just need to quilt it and bind it. I'll add it to this list so it doesn't get ignored. Shirley suggested that we quilted along the stripes, so I'll give that a go.
The Finish Along linkup party is working well for me. I finished all 4 things on my Q1 list which was here, and finished 3 out of 4 things on my Q2 list which was here. Anyone with a blog or Instagram account can join up and share their goals. Adrianne is running the Finish Along this year, so see her blog On the Windy Side for all the Q2 finishes here.
