I had planned to work on my 2017 Goals and Resolution post but……..fabric got in the way. Yesterday I did my 2017 UFO Challenge post and shared a photo of the last UFO I pulled out. Last night I couldn’t stop looking at it and I kept thinking I’ll just make one block…..okay, one more block.
By the time I was ready for bed last night I had all of the blocks made for this UFO. This morning I wanted to take some photos. Notice my cutting table is in the way? Builder Bob put wheels on the bottom of it and I can move it around my studio. My design wall is also a sliding wall that hides shelves with all kinds of fabrics and quilting stuff.I decided not to add the borders as they are the wrong size and am going with the twin size which uses 24 blocks. I only had 12 made when I put this away last year……or the year before. See how I was able to move my table and wall so I could see the whole quilt. I love my sliding design wall.
Just now as I was getting ready to write this post (since I haven’t even started on goals and resolutions) I looked at the pattern for Rainbow’s End by Judy Martin and realized that now……I am only one block short of what is needed for the queen size plus I would have to add to my borders. I can’t decide what I want to do so I’m going to put this away until #1 on the 2017 UFO Challenge is picked!On the American Patchwork & Quilting Facebook group it was announced that the UFO for January with be #6. So get your list done! I am lucking out as that is my easiest UFO. #6 is the kitchen set and all I have to do is quilt two place mats. That is a good thing as I have several blog hops and things going on in January.
Yesterday I had to get some photos of my newest quilt for Island Batik. I couldn’t resist sharing a sneak preview of it as it is beautiful and I had fun going down by the river to take pictures. We have no snow right now but it sounds like we will get it next week. In the afternoon I packed up the quilt and pattern covers and sent it off to Island Batik. It always feels so good to finish something like this.This post contains affiliate links to products I own, use and love.
