UFO work continues. Believe it or not I am still working on January’s to do list. Arghhhh. I just can’t seem to put a realistic time from on my hand applique work. I always seem to underestimate just how long it will take. That in its self is a work in progress. So to see what I did get accomplished I did finish piecing the 2016 Saturday Sampler quilt top and got it delivered to Vickie for quilting. Big round of applause and I take my bow. That also took more time than I had anticipated. Those pesky log cabin blocks were a challenge and approached differently than I had previously made them. P.S. I like my way better. But at least I tried something new and different.
The cute woodland baby quilt got finished and I delivered it.
I finished block 6 of the Boy & Girl quilt
I am now no longer procrastinating on the yellow and green quilt. I am actually working on month 5. I thought once I got the set in y seam sections added it would be a breeze. Not so much. I forgot I had to make the bias strips for the corner ribbons and make like 50 stars and applique them all on. that is what I am working on now.
Then there is Block 7 of a Boy and a Girl quilt to prep and applique which will complete January’s to do list. Not bad considering today is March 5th. I’m on it though.
Went to Saturday Sampler yesterday saw more beautiful fabrics and quilts to inspire me. I truly believe I need to be in fabrics anonymous because I see beautiful fabric and greed takes over and I just want it. It doesn’t matter that I have a room full of beautiful fabric it seems I just want more. Feed the beast! Anyway, I controlled my self and didn’t buy any new fabric just touched it a bit. I didn’t even drool on it. Although I have to admit, reluctantly, I did purchase 2 yards Friday and the quilt shop in Rolla when I was there working. They were pieces that would work well in the Friends of Baltimore quilt that is on my list for next year. I’m currently collecting fabrics for that project.
I have a muse. I drive by this adorable barn everyday on my way to work and I fantasize about converting this into living quarters with a quilting studio on top. I know it crazy, but it’s fun to think about. Isn’t it wonderful. I know, I’m crazy.
Happy March everyone. I’m heading back into my sewing room to work on ribbons and stars.
