From now until Bonnie Hunter’s new book comes out in September you’ll find me right here on Wednesdays sharing my progress on a UFO (unfinished project). My hope is to get some finished so I won’t feel guilty sewing on new projects from her new book. It’s not to late to join in the fun. You can find my first post about it here. You can see my listing of all my Bonnie Hunter UFOs here.
Gradually over the last month I’ve been up early and sewing on my Rectangle Wrangle blocks. It’s been a great project to work on in the early mornings. I have 45 minutes to sew and I can get 9 blocks done in about that amount of time.
Believe it or not, I am not making this quilt bigger than it already is…I know. It shocked me too. It’s big enough as is.
Anyway over time I managed to get the blocks done. I debated about leaving them and just continue to work on the project in the mornings but then Labor Day came…and I was tempted and decided heck with it….I am sewing these together.
Looking at those blocks I never dreamed it would look this good once it was all sewn together. What do you think?I’m blown away.
Next up I need to get the outer blocks cut out. I haven’t touched them at all. To be honest, I never thought this would get this far so those weren’t needed yet.
When I started my UFO work I didn’t have a stitch even sewn in this. I am happy, so very happy, to be this far.
Sadly, until time allows, this project is going to the wayside….I know I should finish it but as of this moment, I have to cut the outer blocks out and that is a perfect nap time project. So if time allows this week I’ll slowly get them cut out. Then I have to get Hubby to carry them upstairs for me and after that, I’ll be sewing on them again.
Little by little, it will happen. In the meantime, I’m liking going to start more actively sewing on different UFO.
I’m going to keep working on my UFOs. Bonnie’s book isn’t here yet so sew, sew, sew.
