UFO Weekend


Last weekend was a UFO weekend for me.  I have lot's of UFO's - all at different stages of completion.  I fall in love with so many designs and want to make them all + I also have the new designs that pop into my head - so they too get started and sometimes get finished.  This quilt is a quilt I designed ages ago all about Friendship and Love.



I have to confess that the only thing that it needed doing was the binding - Isn't that terrible.


I am a lover of sentimental words and this quilt has plenty.


It uses a honeybun plus some homespun, sashing and co-ordinating binding.


The fabric range is "Objects of Desire"


They are such bright sunny fabrics


I am so pleased that it has finally left the UFO box - It was well overdue.


Whilst sifting through the box I came across this Big Bear Block.  It is a pattern called "Vintage Bears" and makes up a single sized bed quilt with the 6 appliqued blocks.  I have it all cut out and ready to go with the first block finished.



So I decided to try to make it for one of my grand daughters for christmas.




I figure that there is only 5 blocks to go - LOL - Wish me luck I think it is about 7 weeks until christmas - I wonder if I will make it to the deadline?

Don't forget to hunt around your home for items that you have re-purposed.  I will be back tomorrow with Re-Purposed Thursday.

Your quilt is darling....I am inspired by how you've tackled your ufos. I wouldn't be lying if I told you that I have 16 ufos at the moment...Maybe tomorrow I'll choose one and complete it. Thanks for the inspiration!
