This has been a good past few days of sewing!!! I finished up an older UFO! This makes 2 UFO's that I have finished this week and I am working on my 3rd! So this in the one that I finished up this weekend! I started it back in January 2011, set it aside, got it back out and worked on it a little more. Then in July 2011 I got it out and cut some of the pieces the wrong size and had to find more of the navy paisley fabric. I was aggravated at this point so I set it aside once again. Then finally I got it back out over the weekend and pieced the last 14 blocks and assembled the top! I am soooooo happy that it is finished and really pleased with how it turned out.
I know it is hanging a little crooked on the wall but that is because there is a big picture hanging behind it. I promise, it is straight. :) I put it on Andrew's bed and it fits his queen size bed really well.
Hunter had to jump in one of the pictures as I was trying to snap them. Silly boy, can you tell he is a goofball?
I wish I had more of these fabrics, I love them. The navy looks almost black in the photo but I promise it is navy. The pattern came from Mary at Mary Quilts. I loved it when she first posted it. I had to change around some of the color placement to fit the amount of fabric that I had.
This is the UFO that I finished earlier in the week. It is called "4 Patch Flip" This was one that I had cut from my scrap basket a year or so ago.
Here are the bow ties, baskets and a block from the other UFO that I started working on, it is called "Road to Jericho" I've made one before and loved it. This was also one that was cut from my scrap basket around the same time as the 4 patch flip.
I got in a little bit of piecing on my 3rd UFO. I hope to have it done in a few days. I had this one cut out but had not started on the piecing.
Then I decided it was time to clean out my scrap basket. This is a basket that I have on my cutting table that all of the scraps go in and when it starts running over I sort through them and put them into different piles. Here you will see in where I started sorting...
I have 1.5" strips, 2" strips, 2.5" strips, reproduction strings and strips of assorted sizes and some fabric that I am collecting for my Scrap Jar Star quilt that I want to start real soon.
I received a wonderful box of goodies in the mail from a very special lady and I sorted through all of that and pressed the strips. I can't wait to get started making something with those....maybe another log cabin quilt????
I also cut out a bunch more bow ties!!!! They are sitting by my machine and are ready to go!
And last but not least...another good mail package! Pillowcases from Janet!!!! Yay! If anyone else is interested in making a few pillowcase for donation to "For Jamie's Sake" please let me know, they would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the original post.
I guess that is all for now, I've got to clean the house, clean out a horse stall, do some laundry, fix supper and hopefully get a little sewing in before the day is over!
