Last week I told you that my Fair and Square quilt was a quilt top. That means it’s time for me to move on to the next UFO….I don’t know if I am going to stay with this UFO but I did pull out Cheddar Bow Ties.
I started working on these long ago back when Bonnie Hunter first started these as a leader and ender challenge. I made quite a few and then decided to wait it out and see how she was going to put these together in a quilt…well I waited and waited.
I had 273 done. I thought I had done so well…that is a lot of stinking little bow ties. BUT the pattern came out and I wasn’t even anywhere close to how many I needed. I was in shock to think I wasn’t even half way finished. I ended out cutting out a lot more…
At this point I don’t know if I have enough cut out for the quilt, if I need to cut out more, if I planned to make it larger….I have no clue. All I know is I have a lot more bow ties to make.
So…I started making them….Here’s how many I’m ready to add.
273 + 149 = 422. Yahoo. I am over half. I have only about 300 more to go. That is do-able.
I’ve been sewing on them for 15 minutes here and there before bed or early in the morning before childcare. That little bit of time has added up. I still have a long way to go to get to the 729 blocks that I need.
You’ll find me back here next Wednesday.
