The boys left today to go home and I got a little work done. I had plans to go to my Mom’s next week but thought I was going to have to leave today to be there this week for one of her appointments. Plans changed again and I’ll still be leaving early but not until Friday.
I’ll be in VA for a little over a week and plan to work on making blocks for the Pink Ribbon string quilt while I’m there but in the meantime I needed something to keep me busy so I started making blocks for the Patriotic String Star for my QOV quilt. I had intended to start making a scrappy Pineapple quilt this week but I’m going to push that off until March.
I’d better be careful or I’ll start too many new quilts. My deal with myself is that I have to finish 2 UFO’s for every new quilt I start. So, I’ve just got a binding to sew down on a baby quilt that will be UFO #8 for the year. Even with that progress I’m going to fall behind with the start of the Pineapple because of all the new string quilts. I guess a better decision would have been to load another UFO on the longarm and quilt that before I left.
