I am on a roll with UFO's and have already started working on my July UFO! The project number drawn by Judy this month is #2 and that is my Celebration 9 Patch, a block swap hosted by Julie last year.
This is the only project on my UFO list that was a bag of blocks, so it's going to take a lot of work to turn this into a finished quilt by the end of the month. This is a photo of how the project looked yesterday - 90 large (6") 9 patch blocks and 60 small (3") 9 patch blocks, which will become some kind of border.
My falling asleep moments over the last couple of nights have been spent dreaming about how I want to sew the blocks together. I decided that I'm going to make my first large totally random quilt. I am not going to match anything, or balance the colour placement, or even lay out the blocks on the design wall. I am just going to pull blocks out of a brown paper bag and sew them together. I have done this when sewing mini quilts before but never a large quilt...should be interesting!
In any spare moments, I have been cutting sashing strips (1 1/2" x 6 1/2") and cornerstone blocks (1 1/2") so I am ready to sew...fire up the sewing machine!
