UFO Progress


Last week I told you that I was indecisive wondering which project to work on..my Blue Skies quilt or my Star Struck quilt…well, guess which one won out.

Blue Skies did.  It’s officially a quilt top.  It needs to be ironed but I quit there.  Ironing is something that is really easy for me to do in the afternoon when the childcare kids are sleeping.  You can find this quilt in Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book.  It was lots of fun to make and not super hard.  You have to be willing to sew triangles though.

I’ve heard from people that triangles aren’t a favorite of theirs…oh think of the quilts you’re missing out on making if you don’t do triangles.  Don’t expect perfection and just give it a try.

Rather than iron that top, I decided to use the rest of my sewing time to start in on assembling the Star Struck quilt top.  Here’s how far I got….

I’m hoping that by next week this will be a top.  That might be ambitious thinking as the weather here is finally perking up and more outside works needs to be completed.  I’ll still be up early in the morning sewing so maybe it will get done.

Stop by next week and see if I got my Star Struck top assembled…and stop by on Friday…I have a quilt that should be finished.
