February was been busy, as a matter of fact it was so busy that I never got this posted. It is now the end of March. I have continued working on my UFO's. One of the big ones is for my Hoop Sister's Feathered Star. I am attempting to get done is all of my blocks embroidered. I fell behind getting them done by November. I have 17 more block to embroider before I lay them you and start the assembly. I am really not looking forward to that part - which is very likely why I have put off working on this one. Maybe I will like it when I get it completed. Right now I am not in love the the quilt or the process. Oh well, live and learn.
I have been following 52 quilts in 52 weeks UFO challenge for the year and am working on UFO #6 this February. I did complete the UFO for last month and since #6 is a wall hanging I should be able to complete it.
In late February, my daughter in law called and ask me to make a quilt for her foster daughter before she was returned to her father. She had been using a quilt that I had made the year before for my daughter-in-law that my grandsons had asked me to make for mothers day. Although I know that my DIL would have given Sienna the quilt she did not want to hurt the boys feelings. I made big 8 inch blocks with sashing because it was quick. She ask for it on a Saturday I completed in Sunday and took it to my daughter to quilt. It was quilted on Monday and I started attaching binding on Wednesday. My husband bound it and took it to her on Thursday. I have a terrible picture of it. It was to dark and rainy. Needless to say I did not get UFO #6 done for February.
I worked on laying out a quilt during the Super Bowl and sewed it together this last weekend. I learned a valuable lesson....never lay a quilt out at my youngest daughter's house. I have been using the lint roller on every block as I sewed it together to remove dog hair. However, as the quilt was waiting to get good enough light to take a picture my oldest daughter stopped by and took it to her house. I still do not have a picture.
I also began doing the little cross stitch blocks the Little Miss Shabby. They are small and cute. But I am very out of practice and have made numerous mistakes. And ripped several times. No pictures yet. Not until I get it right.
I have the blocks all pieced for the zig zag quilt. When I began laying this quilt out I discovered that I have sewed over half the block incorrectly. This one looked so easy. Looks can be deceiving. It has two blocks and I got pretty good doing the first one then started doing the second but somehow I keep going back to the first block. This was UFO for the Month of March.
And here is UFO #6
It should have been completed before Christmas now it really does not matter if it takes a while to get this one quilted.
I am now waiting to find out the UFO number for April.
