I managed to get a little bit of UFO sewing done on my weekend sewing stint with Kelli.
The TWO Zuckerwatte quilts are heading down the home stretch! I have the long inner borders on the sides of both quilts. The other inners borders and the piano borders are all sewn and ready to be applied too.
I’m VERY happy with the progress. (This quilt is in Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling)
I’ve told you before that I work really hard to plan my quilting to fit into my life. Although I had enough time that I could have finished these tops, I left them as is. Over the next week or so, during nap time I will pin the border in place and then at night, I will sew them on.
Being these quilts are so close to a finish I thought I better pull something else I could work on this week over nap time….I picked this….I know, it doesn’t look glamorous or interesting at all. These are papers for Bonnie Hunter’s quilt Virginia Bound found in Scraps and Shirttails book 1.
I need to do some trimming on these and get them squared up so I can start sewing blocks. It’s not a big job but kind of time consuming and the perfect nap time project. I don’t know for sure if that means that this will be the next project of not…all I know is this has to be done before I can get to sewing on the quilt. Small steps, even baby steps, add up over time.
You can find me right back here next week working on my UFOs. Happily all the work is paying off!!
As a heads up. Saturday the 17th I am updating my UFO list showing the progress and additions I’ve made over the year. I am planning a linky party so if you’re inclined to update you’re own list your can link up or leave a comment then. For me, seeing my progress (or lack of progress) is often something I need to keep me going!
