Before I forget...both the DRAGON and the LIME GREEN WITH DOTS are from Timeless Treasures 2007 fabric line. I purchased them at a Mill Ends store. They are a sort of clearing house store for fabric production 'overrun'. Not hard to imagine that the fabric producers make way too much of everything. It's not necessarily "seconds" or "flawed" fabric. Often, it's bolted fabric that was over produced and didn't sell. Here's Ebby cat testing another UFO. I had orginally planned a full size quilt from there 6.5" log cabin blocks. Plan revised: They will become one or 2 table runners or squares. I'm feeling like I've made enough log cabin blocks from 1.5" strips to last me a life time! Most of these are sewn into 4 block sets, but I know how to fix that!
And a little trick and treating flavor for the month *VBS* I counted up the "finishes" in the New Years Eve UFO challenge, and so far we have completed 53(that have been reported to me) We are doing good, but need to keep stitching to accomplish our goals!
Quilting continues(again) on the Guild BOM quilt from 1999. As of last evening, I have 3 more blocks to quilt, and then need to put something in the border. I'll use the half hoop for that, and probably quilt with perle cotton. IT's a very dark border and I have little vision in that department. I haven't made it back to the Blue Baby Bows quilt as yet. It still needs binding sewn on...maybe later today.
