UFOs! Quilters all have UFOs, right? Why do we have them? Why do we have so many? What’s wrong with starting one project and finishing it; then starting another project and finishing it? I’m not the one who can answer that question! There are quilters out there who do that though . . finish one project before starting another one. Those same quilters probably put away all the extra fabric, vacuum the carpet and label their quilt before starting a new project. I’m definitely not one of those people!
In January, I was seriously knocking out some UFOs. Not totally knocking them out because the handwork on the binding isn’t done, nor is the label. But, I was making progress.
Yesterday I headed straight down to the sewing room. But I jumped from one project to another. I have to do better or I’ll never finish anything.
Monday night while knitting, I thought about a simple quilt. Tuesday night I started playing with it in EQ and it kinda evolved into something different from what I was thinking. Wednesday morning I cut some pieces and made a few blocks. I like it a lot and you’ll see it soon.
This is going to be simialr to Bears in the Farmhouse. I cut out all the pieces yesterday.
You know what this is . . the Star BOM. I needed to make the 13th block to check my directions. Got that done but you don’t see it yet! 🙂
The second yellow Bears in the Farmhouse. Started the day as lots of pieces.
Ended the day with all the blocks done.
One block had been scorched with an old iron and I had to remake it. Got that done.
And, I knitted a little bit!
Today I will do better. I’m going to spend the entire day working on the first project . . I think! 🙂
