I interrupted work on my UFOs (UnFinished Objects) to do the Happy Rainbow Quilt for the auction and with that done, it's time to get back to my UFO list. My guild is sponsoring a mini quilt-in on Friday and I'm going to pack up one of my machines and start quilting this Blooming 9-Patch that I've been anxious to work on for some time.
Most people do a large bed-sized version of this quilt, and it really can be stunning depending upon one's fabric choices. I wanted one I could hang on a wall in my living room. My late mother-in-law gifted me with most of the fabric in this quilt shortly before she passed away. I think she would have liked how it turned out.
This year I set my sights much lower! Christine had suggested I aim for one per month. An excellent idea, although it hasn't worked out that I actually work on one per month. No, being ADD means I work on multiple things at once. But I did shorten my list to 13 items and while we're now over 4 months into the challenge, only 1 item is actually finished. That would be this one here:
However, I've made significant progress on 2 more items on the list. One I'm hand quilting and it's almost finished. The other just needs to be layered, basted, and quilted. It was literally just in pieces back in December.
So, have I told you lately to go over and bid? Yeah, you need to do that right now.
