I have progress in the UFO department….
Look and see!
My Pfeffernuse quilt is a top! I’m so excited. It feels so good to have a project that is this far along. I started thinking about where I am going to put this quilt in the line up of quilts waiting to be put on the quilt frame. The good news is that this one already has a backing ready to go…dare I hope to get it done over the weekend…maybe.
What’s fun about this quilt…I bought a big box of scraps, many 80’s calicoes on a garage sale for $1 and they make up much of the string blocks. The box was so big that there is plenty more to make another quilt. Kelli saw this and said if I didn’t mind, she’d take the rest of the box of scraps. She wants to make this quilt too.
I’m very happy with the border fabric. It’s a piece I bought from Whittles Fabrics.
You can find me here next Wednesday sharing my UFO progress..oh my, I have to figure out what I’m pulling out to work on.
Lovely quilt top. I like your colour choices, they all work so well together.
I love this top! You’re right, the border is stunning! Very eye-catching!
Wow! Very impressive! I always love your color selections!
I love this quilt. I may have to start it next lol. I am working on Bonnie’s new mystery and also working on her Celtic Solstice mystery from a few years ago. Happy Stitching!

Your quilt is gorgeous! Makes me want to make one too.
WOW!! I love this one!!!!
Does cleaning out the sewing room count??? I have been working very hard in my room to purge fabric I will not use, get UFOs put together, get tops and backs put together to quilt, and just get organized. I have decided that processing 1 tote (18 gallon) of scraps, reduce number of kits by sewing them up, 1 Bonnie and 1 Jo finish by August and a 30 UFO challenge from my friend Lorraine are my goals for 2017.
I have clue 5 done, but need to finish sewing 2 and 4 (all cut). I did quilt a couple of quilt tops that have been hanging around and will be sending those to the Tennessee fire victims as soon as I get the bindings done. I am not sure that I will meet my Easy Street finish goal, but decided the donation quilts were more important to me.
I hope that you will continue this Wednesday check in, so I have some accountability. :)
Jo, this quilt is beautiful! I love the outer border!!!
I love the red and brown together, and the border fabric is outstanding! Very handsome quilt!
Jo, this is a GORGEOUS quilt! Congrats!
Your inspire me with your work! Looks like gingerbread with frosting. Yummy!
