I was so busy working on lots of other projects that my UFO work kind of slipped away. That’s okay. That will happen from time to time.
The thing I’ve been wanting to work on is tackling my pile of quilts that needs to be quilted. With that in mind, I put my Cheddar Bow Ties quilt on the frame.
As of now, I’m about half way done….YAHOO!!
I’m doing baptist fans for the motif. It’s pretty slow going as the thread is so hard to see on the quilt as I go. That’s been okay though as it hides all my mistakes…HAHA!
It feels so good for this quilt to be back in the spot light. I have a bit of a goal to get the quilt tops that Kelli and I have sewn together through the quilting machine and finished. I have seven. I have a goal of one a week. I don’t know if I can keep up with that but I sure would like to try. I’m tired of having them here and unfinished. I did the official count and there are SEVEN not quilted. Then after that, I want to keep up and machine quilt the tops as they are finished. I really this would help my attitude of feeling behind.
I also have a stack of charity quilts that need attention. Oh my. My work in never done!!
I so have other UFO progress to share. It’s not a lot. See?
I got the rest of Scrap Crystals cut out.
It doesn’t look like a lot but this included the final decision on what I was to use for the sashing on this quilt.
After looking at the quilt I was wrong in thinking that once the blocks were done I’d have this together in no time. NOT! There is quite a lot of piecing in the sashing. That’s okay. I’m not running a race.
Find me here next week. I’m hoping to have a different UFO on the quilting frame.
