UFO Progress


I did it….Rectangle Wrangle is a top!  I’m so excited.  After last week I was little bummed because I came up short on blocks.  Can you believe I cut the last block out that I needed and then lost it?!  I cut out another and got it sewn.  Then I sat there and didn’t move until it was finished.  I was afraid I would set aside, miss count or have some other problem.

I wish you could see this in person.  It’s even better than it is in pictures.  I didn’t have a spot in the house to lay it all out ….this was the best I could do.

I ended up taking it to my bedroom and put it on my bed….What do you think?

Here the lighting wasn’t the best.  That’s okay.  The plan is to get this one on the machine and finish-finish it right away.  I think I am going to use this one as an alternate quilt for my bed…we’ll see what Hubby thinks of it once I have it all finished.

That left me needing to pull out another UFO.  I don’t know if I’m sticking with it but here’s Virginia Bound.  I have started organizing it.  I started with three finished blocks.  I am already up to 20!  I have more started but not trimmed and finished. I am excited to see that.  

I haven’t done all the calculations yet but I think I am enlarging this one so I need to fill in the spot on my paper noting how many block I need.  I always keep a note with what I’m working on like this….two things are listed….how many I need and how many I have.  It’s a quick way to see how I’m doing without counting and recounting all the time.  It also prevents me from having to look up how many blocks I need.

So far, I’m liking this project….Stop back next week and see if I’ve made any progress.
