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.
My September Goals – As if I don’t have enough to do
I have so many things partially done, I’m trying to make a list to help me keep on track.
- Completed – Make tops for Fabric Cafe in September I made 2 tops, 1 throw and 1 twin). The fabric for these tops won’t be in the shop until later, but I’ll share in another post when it is available.
- In Progress – Commissioned Quilt – Sandwiched & Quilting in Progress
- Completed – Pillowcase & Travel Pillow for neighbor’s Birthday.
- Completed – Cut/Stitch Backing for 2 quilts & prepared to take to Long Arm Quilter
- In Progress – Hand Piece Quilt Along 2021 – Working on Borders, will need to find fabric for 2nd border
- In Progress – Cut fabric for Dino/City Lights quilt (to be stitched in October)
- Completed – Fall 2021 Current Projects – Snowmen & Silent Night, All the Trimmings and Project Linus 2021/Oliver in the Dog House – All Blocks Completed as released.
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.
