April UFO


This darn UFO is almost a quilt top. It was a good effort but is taking so long in the designing stage. I added a 1.5" blue border, and then put the extra block parts on point. I didn't have enough blocks to complete the border it wanted, and I am still scrounging through the scraps trying to stretch them to make enough blocks. 
Also, I have not figured out the corners yet. Slowly chugging along... chug, chug, chug...
Good Enough!



This project is much closer to becoming a quilt, so I have decided to call the effort "good enough" for this month. I will put this UFO on the top of the "to do" list for May, and maybe more progress will be made.

And guess what? Bonnie is doing Quilt Cam tonight and I'll be getting out my hand stitching. Why don't you grab a project to work on, and I'll "see" you there at 9 pm.

  7. Get your EQ up and play with those corners. Or just put a little bigger 4-patch in the corner. Yea, Quit CAm tonight when there's not much on TV!
