Lately I have been a bit cheesed off with the amount of UFO's lurking around my room. There are umpteen new quilts I want to make - every day my list gets longer - new quilts in magazines and especially in Blogland. These quilts are calling to me but I cannot ignore the MANY abandoned quilts I have so I have been thinking ( god help us all - lol ).
From tomorrow I am launching my "Quilt of the Month". Briefly put this means that I will dig out one UFO and work on it as much as I can for that month. Now I'm not saying that's all I will do as I know I would never stick to that and there will be other things I need and want to do. But what I plan is to have this UFO out in the open and whenever I get chance I will do a bit. I will show photos at the start of the month and at the end to see what progress I have made. Who knows I may even get something finished ?
So Septembers Quilt of the Month is as follows.
Originally it was like this
then after deciding I didn't like where it was heading it ended up like this. What a lot of unpicking !!
Anyway I thought it needed an injection of something to jazz it up a little and now it looks like this. I love that lime green.
It has sat in a basket for a while so now it's time to do something about it. This is English Paper Piecing so will be great for picking up in odd moments.
Do you see the start of the dark blue round the edges ? I think this will work.
There are 4 variations of blocks here and I intend to make up a few more then start joining together.
The hexagons are quite big so are not too fiddly. After posting this I will cut some more papers ready.
Anyone fancy joining in with this - feel free. I may put a side bar of links if anyone is interested. I know there are other lovely ladies doing a finish of the month but for me this is just an idea to make some progress on larger quilts.
And definitely next post I will show the one I am preparing for hand-quilting throughout the winter months.
Have fun xx
