Question: How's the weather today? Answer: Not too bad. (sigh)
My goal is to get as many unquilted tops quilted and finished as I can this year. I have way too many of them, and they're keeping me from feeling good about starting new and exciting projects. So, let's see how I did.
Oklahoma Backroads and Ninepatch Rosegarden were quilted and bound!
|Oklahoma Backroads 55x75 inches|
It was so windy I couldn't get it to lay flat for a photo.
|Ninepatch Rosegarden 25x25 inches|
Starburst and Blue Disappearing 4-Patch small quilts were new projects and not UFO's, but are quilted, have their bindings on, and are ready to be hand sewn down at Historical Society events so that I have something to demonstrate. Do they count as finished? Almost.
I made progress on Countdown to Christmas and have the center portion quilted. Borders still to be quilted with free motion stars when I get my courage up for that.
Two lap quilts are sandwiched, pin-basted and ready to quilt in February.
And as for my stash report: 10 yards of fabric purchased this year and 9 yards used.
Not too bad.
Linking up with Vicki and other quilters who are seriously working on their UFO's this year. She asked if we had ever trashed a project that wasn't going well. Sort of. I had a quilt top that I finished and really didn't like it, so after an extended period of avoiding it, I donated it to a local church quilting group. They were thrilled to have it. One quilter's trash is another quilter's treasure I guess.
