Yes I know... I haven't posted anything about my UFO of the month. I usually do a mid month report, but I can't find it! Seriously. Stop laughing! I put it in a safe place. It's in a very safe and confidential location.
I haven't finished a quilt all summer and have been feeling self imposed pressure to finish something. Anything.
So I decided to do a last minute substitution, kind of like a pinch hitter in baseball. In the UFO closet I found a mystery quilt called "Ghosts and Mosts" from last year's Super Bowl mystery.
Basting was quick and easy with my favourite Kwik Klip tool which lifts and holds the pins steady in order to easily close them.
The free motion foot is on my sewing machine and (as usual) I started by quilting horizontal and vertical stabilizing lines through the sashings. Then I started stitching diagonal lines.
So far so good.
There are almost 2 weeks left in August so there might be a finished quilt this summer after all!
What a cheery quilt you are finishing there!;))) Nice to cover up with on those frigid Winter days that are surely in our future...hugs, Julierose
Very pretty, love those warm colors you used in this one. Happy stitching this week. Fingers crossed you have a finish by the end of the month.
Haha. A safe and Confidential place. I swear I need a Box that says Sage place to put things in. Then I would know where to find them. Good pitch hitter quilt UFO. A finish is in sight.
I thought I was the only one who put stuff away and then can't find it!! You've found a good substitute and are making good progress towards a finish. Happy stitching.
So it seems you know about baseball like I do...pinch hitter (in a pinch) sounds right!! haha
As for the UFO...getter done!!!!
Great quilt, and nice save on the UFO pinch hit, LOL!!
The UFO likes the quilt closet more than a finish! This one is a fine substitute. Enjoy.
Pinch hitting in UFOs is *perfectly* acceptable and actually rather par for the course! LOL! :)
Pretty top! When you get it finished this month, it will be just in time for autumn and the colors are perfect for the season :)
If you can't sub in your own lineup, why play the game? :)
That is a fun quilt--I like the color combo.
I lose projects all the time ;) Good substitution.
Here I thought you had it wrong. My humblest apologies...I thought it was pitch hitter so I guess I know nothing about baseball and I am good with that!!Sorry friend!
