May UFO Update

When I signed up for my guild UFO challenge last November, I listed 28 projects that I would attempt to finish within the year. It is now 6 months later.
I have finished 5.
Five.
I have a lot of work to do.
In fairness to me I spent quite a bit of time on Springing Up Fun.
Hey! Go bid on it!
Meanwhile, here's the latest I've finished. This is my Flower Pot wall hanging that was a challenge with two friends. We each made 2 sets of 3 identical blocks and swapped them. It came from a pattern I found in the June 2008 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. We did start with coordinated pink & orange batiks to use for the flowers. I'm giving serious thought to entering mine into the state fair.

One of my UFOs is a 9-patch flower sampler. Below is block number 5. This block was, to put it crudely, a bitch. I swear the pattern instructions were wrong in more than one place. I did more unsewing to get this finished...

OK, yes, the whole idea of a UFO focus is to NOT start new projects. But I couldn't help myself. This first one is a gift for a friend who has a new baby. All new babies deserve a quilt.

And here are all the blocks from the retreat's mystery quilt. They're still up on my design wall waiting to be sewn together. But that won't happen for a few weeks yet.

Because I'm working on a purse that I forgot to take a picture of. I know. It's hopeless.

  2. Thank you! And isn't that nice to see people bidding on the quilt? Let me just say that my mother has not yet begun to bid, LOL!
