12 months – 12 projects ~~~~ My UFO Adventure

Hello- My very first post.  Welcome to my little blog. I signed on to participate in a UFO project at our local quilt shop.  The goal is to get those UFO’s finished.  We were to make a list of 12 projects and description of completion.  I had made several lists and discarded them as being too ambitious, and my finalized list was still edited as panic gripped me at such a huge committment.   Silly me put them in the order I wanted them completed.  A wrench was thrown in the mix by the facilitator putting the numbers 1-12 in a basket and drawing a number.  The first number drawn is # 5.  On my list that is 200 – 4.25″ log cabin blocks which represents 1/2 of a log cabin quilt I have wanted to make for years and collected the fabrics and stored in one of my many tubs.  I have been sewing furiously since January 1st on these blocks.  My goal is actually to complete 480 blocks and get 1/2 of the top sewn together.  With the time left to me I hopefully will be able to work on my #1 project which is to finish my 2014 Row by Row experience quilt top. Yesterday was my birthday so I took a vacation day so that I could blissfully sit in my sewing room and sew my little log cabin blocks.  I have completed 350.  I am on track and very proud of myself.  Big pat on the back.

About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
