UFO Progress


It happened.  The Zuckerwatte quilts came to a finish…well not a finish-finish…I have the tops finished though…see?

Remember I was making two of them so as proof both are equally as far along here’s a quick picture with them both.  Poor Ruby was so confused.  I’ve never laid out two quilts at the same time before.  She didn’t know where to sit…HA!!

I have to get backing together for these two tops and then onto the quilting frame they will go…The original pattern calls for a scalloped border and that’s my plan but I’m told that it’s best to scallop them after the machine quilting but in the meantime, I started on my next UFO.  Any guesses on which one?  This one…Rectangle Wrangle.  You can find the pattern in Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails II.

When I last left this project it was this far along.

It needed a whole bunch of Ohio Stars for around the border.   A couple of weeks ago I anticipated getting to this point and had cut out all the little stars over nap time.  It took me a whole week to get them cut out, as I can only grab a few minutes of time each day.  It was finally time to start sewing them.   I got the first one finished.

And I started a few more.  I love sewing these little cuties.

If I remember right I’ll need 56 all together.  That should keep me busy for a bit.

You can find me back here next week working on my UFOs.  If I’m honest, I’d rather work on my UFOs than my current projects.  I have no idea when that change came about.  I used to hate picking up and revisiting previously started projects.
