UFO Completion Update

12 02 2018

Happy Monday, Everyone! Here’s hoping you had time to spend a couple of hours this past weekend to sew and work on your UFOs.

Speaking of UFOs, Patti sent a picture of her bright ‘n cheerful Sixteen Patch quilt made with leftovers from an Eleanor Burns class she took in VA in 2011. This quilt goes to her “Prayer Quilters” group at church. I love the diagonal movement in the quilt. Way to go, Patti!

Judy sent a picture of “Long Road Home” composed of blocks exchanged among quilting friends. It’s just beautiful, Judy! I know you will enjoy using this quilt made from Civil War reproduction fabrics in your home.

I worked on my second “serious” UFO for the first quarter. It is serious because if I don’t finish, I’ll owe a fat quarter to everyone who did finish her UFO at an end-of-February quilting retreat. That is what you call a deadline with a penalty, definitely a motivator! The design is “Chopped” by Joan Ford who taught a workshop for Tarheel Quilters Guild two years ago. The interior of the quilt is done. Now to add pieced borders, made of leftovers from chopping the Pinwheel blocks. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Love your Joan Ford project. Took a class from her a few years ago and am certain that project is a UFO! I finished one at my recent retreat that was started in 2012!
