Quilting As Time Flies….
Sometimes life gets in the way of spending quality time working on my quilty projects!
We had friends from Norway visiting for 10 days, the weather here in central Florida was beautiful and it was a pleasure spending time with them.
I was able to spend a few minutes each day in my sewing room finishing up items on my UFO list that only need quilting and binding.
A finish is a finish — right? 🙂
I love quilts that feature star blocks. I made this 36 x 36 inch batik patriotic wall hanging using the “Peaky & Spike” tall star points. I used my Tri-Recs ruler set to create the star points, I believe the name of this star block is named sun ray. The Shoo – Fly quilt block was my alternating block which created the plus/cross secondary pattern in the center of the quilt!
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE plus and cross quilt blocks?!! — and a star in the center — oh happy day 🙂
My second UFO finish for February is Autumn Stars. My version was inspired by another Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial. The quilt measures 45 x 45 inches. I used Kona Cotton solids in fall colors to cut my own 2.5 inch strips.
I hate to admit I really had a hard time with this pattern. I was getting awfully comfortable with my seam ripper so after nine blocks I was done :(.
I love the backing fabric!
My last UFO finish for February was my batik Jacob’s Ladder quilt. Free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop – Classic and Vintage Series.
3 down — 10 to go! What do you with the UFO’s you have no intentions of finishing?
Until next time — Happy Sewing & Quilting!
