Design Wall Monday

On the design wall today is my UFO project of the month. I started piecing these Civil War sampler blocks in January 2011. 
It was a project on Barbara Brackman's blog and I enjoyed making the blocks throughout that year, and learning some history about the Civil War. This project was on my UFO list for 2013 and here it is almost the end of the year and they are finally making it into a quilt top. I have many of the vertical sashings sewn on and need to cut and sew the horizontal sashings. Oh yah - and figure out the borders!
My goal is to get this quilt top completely together by the last day of the year... which is tomorrow! Yikes!
What do you think the odds are of that?!?! LOL
To see more design walls on the last link up of the year, hop over to Patchwork Times.

  8. If you head to your sewing space all day, and only come up for air to eat, you can do it. LOL! Actually, it shouldn't take you that long to get it done. It's almost there. I have a UFO that I wanted to get done by the end of the year. But since a certain little grandson is coming to visit all day today, there won't be any sewing done today.

  12. This is just gorgeous. Even if you just get it sashed and ready for borders, I think you will have made wonderful progress.

  13. You can do it, Kathy!! (That is, if no one calls you, or comes to your door--you don't stop for meals, or bathroom breaks, and sleep is something you can do without.) Just kidding, or course you can do it! : )
