This has been a good week. I finished two UFO projects. Does that make me one week ahead of my weekly challenge to finish one UFO a week? Probably not.
The first UFO project was a stack of squares. They were cut from fabric that I received when another quilter cleaned out her sewing room. There were enough squares to make two charity quilts and four placemats.
I backed the placemats with some Asian fabric, I seem to have a lot of that type of fabric in my stash and hate to cut it up. It usually has a big repeat. I do have a pattern that uses Asian fabric. I bought it years ago at Keepsake Quilting. It was a “I just have to have that pattern” moment. I seem to have a lot of those patterns in my pattern drawer. I should think about making that quilt and use up the fabric. It will be in the line of my “to do someday” quilts.
The second UFO project is the prototype of the Circle of Friends quilts. I made it in pastel colors which is not at all like the colors in the other two quilts that I made. I did learn a lot by making a prototype. It helped me figure out how big to cut the strips and how to sew it together. It also helped me design the quilting. The other two quilts will be quilted differently. It makes a very nice table topper or wall hanging.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
