Here we are February all ready! Are you all excited about the month? Looking forward to completing new projects and finishing up some of those UFO?
Well, it was my plan for January to finish up just my UFO. But I ran out of time. And I really didn't have a good idea how to quilt these Jewel Boxes.
Don't you think these Jewel Boxes will be fun to quilt once I get a good idea? (Hint, Hint, If you have an idea please let me know. )
I did get all the Irish Chain portion quilted. Yea for me!
Just a close up picture of one - as the light pink thread is hard to see on that very light blue/pink fabric batik.
Also on my mind for January that didn't get finished is The Stay at Home Round Robin. (I bet I'm using the wrong name for that.)
I've thought long and hard about this quilt today; What is keeping me from doing this quilt. Answer: (Insert whining voice) It's too hard!!!
I'm either too tired at night or too busy to sit and figure out the math for the different elements - like the log cabin blocks. So...I'm skipping that row, and I'm going on to the next row, or maybe even the next row after that. Then maybe this quilt and I can come to an understanding and it will get completed.
Another thing that I worked on during January was my little house block. I had said I wasn't going to do this one but it I just couldn't help it. I was at work and I thought oh, lets see how it would be to make this template, and then I had a bit of fabric to cut out. The next thing I knew I was working on the little houses. I do it at work, when I have a few moments - and as you can see I haven't had many of those. Here's how far I've gotten in 3 weeks.
|Hey, my door is upside down! Good thing I didn't sew it up yet.|
My only finish for January was my "Hello Sun" block.
This little guy was fun and I can't wait to start February's block.
There's nothing like quilting for a hobby. There's always a new project to start and an old project to finish up. We never have to worry about getting bored with our hobby.
Happy February Sewing,
