It's time for a mid-month UFO progress report.
My goal is to finish my 3 Sisters Grace quilt (aka Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay mystery) by the end of November.
First I spent some time piecing a backing from the leftover fabrics that I bought for this quilt. For some reason I seem to have a lot of leftover green fabric. I can't remember if I just didn't use as much green in the blocks as I should have, or if I was being creative, or perhaps I made a mistake, or did I miss a border or what??? It doesn't matter now I guess!
The quilt top is done, and there was a lot of green leftover, so it is now in the backing and I threw a few leftover blocks in there too!
Here is everything ready to pin baste - quilt top, Warm and Natural batting, and my pieced backing.
I decided on red Isacord thread for the top and taupe Aurifil thread for the bobbin. I have my favorite basting tool "Kwik Klip" and my pins and I'm ready to get this quilt one step closer to finishedness!
And while I had all the fabric out, I cut and prepared the binding from brown and red striped pieces.
So progress is definitely being made and it is possible that I might get a finish this month!
