Drum roll please....I was invited by my cousin to participate in an online stay at home mystery challenge; I downloaded the PDF, and started checking out stash fabrics...only took 3.. Then I thought, there are UFO's I want to finish, and fabric for quilts I want to start. I quit following the mystery have moved on without starting another quilt that could end up in UFO land!

Three Cheers, oksewglad! Good focus on your goal!

I fell victim to an online quilt-a-long and hated the end result. Good pattern, bad fabric choice. I have cut up the blocks to re-purpose the fabric and to avoid another UFO. I ended up with a few orphan blocks but mostly 7.5 inch blocks of fabric that can be returned to my stash for another more pleasing use.

Wow! Everyone is doing wonderfully on their UFOs. Me, not so much. I have been working on this Porcelain top seems like forever, but is only months. I'm not finding it fun enough to want to keep with it. Biggest problem is that I started it on the antique Singer up in the bedroom while watching TV. Discovered that it didn't work out well to take it to the basement to work on the Aria. So I have been putzing along here and there. Well, today I am determined to finish up the last couple blocks and get it ready to assemble... on point with half blocks around the perimeter, and sashing between blocks. The half blocks have been a challenge, mainly because I just "skimmed" the directions instead of digesting them into my "old" brain. I was following my logic instead of the pattern's reality. Now I think I have it down pat, so the plan is to go downstairs with the artbin, play with my 1/4" seam, and get to it. No distractions down there.

Thumbs up

I am in. I have six to get done. One is 30 years, my mother in law had started it in 1988, and she passed in 1989. I thought it was almost done, but when I looked at it 4 year.s ago, I was sadly mistaken. I worked on it a bit, then put it away till last summer I decided to finish it up. Well, it was a DWR quilt from a kit, and a I found it was missing a few pieces. I called up the company Hearthside Quilts and they were most accommodating. They had a few colors similar to what was in the quilt, and I bought the pieces I needed. I did need to undo a lot, but hey, after 30 years, what is a few more weeks? Will be getting it done for January 2021, our 40th anniversary. She’d be pleased.

Default March UFO

I am trying this as advised hoping that this work, I'll explain in another post. Ok, I got it to work, this pix is of a UFO from four or five years ago. I was going to finish it for one of my darling grandson, but figure it wasn't long enough and went with another pattern. Now this one will be gifted to someone else dear to me.

Stay safe everyone
