I am participating in a UFO challenge. Earlier in the year I signed up to complete 6 UFO’s this year. Every month on the 10th of the month we are given a #. This month the #2 was chosen. The second quilt on my UFO list is to complete a mystery quilt that I started a couple of years ago. It was a mystery challenge that was done by Evergreen Quilters – the challenge was to have them done by May. Well maybe it will be done by this May.
As with most UFO’s (aka unfinished objects) something makes you come to a screeching halt in your progress to complete the quilt. In this case I sort of fell out of love with this quilt. I didn’t have enough fabric to finish it the way that I would have liked, I wasn’t thrilled with the final layout of the quilt, and it wasn’t quiet large enough in spite of the fact that this was supposed to be the size for a Full Size bed. Oh well, that is the issue sometimes with mysteries. When you get towards the end the mystery is whether or not it will be completed.
The fabrics that I chose will be perfect in my guest room – I like the colors, and it is a completed top soooo….it is time to sandwich it and finish it. I plan to quilt it on my domestic machine. I need to decide how I want to quilt it – I have a pretty good idea what I am going to do. I will get this ironed and layered and hopefully I will start quilting it this weekend.
The weather men are talking about another storm on Thursday. We have a lot of snow out there right now but more snow is ok with me. Of course I am not the person who is moving it all, and I know for a fact that the person in my house who will be moving it all is running out of places to put it.
I will be working on quilts -some new ones, some old ones and some that are somewhere in between. Sounds like a good plan to me.
Stay safe in the weather – whatever yours might be.
