September 2021 Progress on Goals, UFOs & OMG

I can’t believe that September is over. Then, on the other hand, with the cooler weather we’ve been having, it definitely is not summer any more. I have been busy, but I can’t share all of it.

(OK, for those not in the quilting world – UFO stands for UnFinished Object, and OMG means One Monthly Goal.)


American Patchwork & Quilting’s UFO Challenge. Participants created a list of 12 (or more) unfinished projects that we hoped to work on or complete this year. The first of the month a random number is announced and that is the project to work on.

My September UFO – Fat Eighth Frenzy Quilt

For September the number was #1 – to add borders to my Fat Eighth Frenzy Quilt. I managed to add a small black border. But I haven’t found any fabric in my stash for the 2nd border, so this will have to wait until I go shopping. Although, the more I look at this, I may just stop here and find backing. It is 52″ x 60″ as is.

My September OMG – FQS 2014 Wishes Mystery QAL

I’m afraid this has been a failure. I got involved in other projects and actually didn’t even touch this. I have pieces all cut and ready to sew, but it will have to be placed on the back burner for a while.

I have so many things partially done, I’m trying to make a list to help me keep on track.

That’s it for September. It feels like it has just begun and now it is over. Looking back I guess I got more done than I thought.

Happy Stitching
