I have decided to go along with May Britt's challenge to use January as a finish it up month. As such I decided to count up my UFO's thinking I would have about 7 or 8 at the most. I was completely wrong - I have 20. You could have knocked me down with a feather - lol ! I am in the process of sorting out what I could finish fairly soon and will post pictures soon. Some of these are needing quilting and some others are long term projects like my DJ and my hexagon quilt. Whilst digging about I came across my hexagons and have been doing a bit of work on that. I love the Grandmothers Flower Garden quilts and mine is a variation of that. Here's a bit I did this week.
I will post a picture of what it looks like so far only I don't have much time today.
I have also been playing catch up on Bonnie's mystery quilt. As I started it a lot later than a lot of other ladies I really want to get my units pieced before she starts putting them together. I have done parts 2 and 3, which I think was the most time-consuming and will try my best to get parts 4 and 5 done before next Friday when the next installment is due. In these little baskets are 180 3 inch 9-patch blocks. Phew - glad they are done.
I also dug around on the pc and found photos of my nephews football quilt. This is the one I think he has outgrown a bit. His new one ( which he has requested ) will be a little more grown -up. Nothing too fancy for a 15 year old boy I'm thinking. Once I catch up on the mystery quilt I'm going to go through my fabrics and have a think of what I can do.
Kids are back to school next week and I will be delighted to see them go - lol !! They are getting a bit bored now - especially Jess.
Let's hope 2008 is a good year for everyone with plenty of FINISHED quilts !!
