I am so determined to get at least one UFO finished each month this year that I have tried to come up with a bit of a plan to get things done. Firstly the big UFO to be finished this year WILL be Val Laird's "Consider the Lilies" wall hanging. All the blocks were made up at the beginning of last year with one blocks hand sewing finished and the second started by the end of the year. Well I have now completed the second blocks embroidery and will commence on the third shortly. Stayed tuned.......
I love table runners and I have several table runners in various stages of completeness in little baggies these are the next thing to mark off the list. So with that in mind a grabbed on bag the other day which had enough in it for two long table runners (can't remember why). This is the first of those table runners using a quilt as you go method, fabric is basic Grey's "Sultry" by Moda (mmmmm love Basic Grey) jelly Roll (left over from teapot cosies which are still to be completed..
The rest of the fabric in that bag I have now been sewn together Jelly roll race style,I will add vertical borders to make it wide enough then quilt and bind it and another table runner/UFO will be done.
But first I will complete
2 more UFO hand towels which have now been earmarked as a personal swap.
After that I have another table runner, that I have designed myself, to complete using an Authentic by Sweetwater charm pack.
Then I will only have one more table runner to complete (made with caring hearts) and that UFO box will be done and dusted for this year. There are only 4 more boxes to work my way through (bags, cushions, kitchen projects, completed blocks) as well as a few small baskets of UFO's that haven't been sorted yet and 5 quilt tops still to be quilted.
That's do-able isn't it.........
