This 16 patch quilt is UFO finish #11 for me this year which sounds good until I look at my New Starts … 12 quilts have been started, 11 are finished tops, and only 2 have been quilted and bound … at this pace, my UFO number is going to go up next year.
Keith and I had a nice weekend together – some biking, some time just vegging, and a date nite. I didn’t have time in the sewing room but I did manage to make progress on the crochet Shell blanket (this thing is massive) and get the Strips and Strings Log Cabin quilt bound.
Keith left early this morning so I’m back to work. I’ve made a good start on assembling the Bow Tie top and I’ve got a Happy Block top loaded on the longarm but the afternoon storms have rolled in so I’m going to sit and work on hand stitching the 16 patch binding.
Working my way through my list … this Happy Block quilt from the Maine sew-in is bound! I have two left to quilt and I’ll have to get those done in the next few weeks because I want to take them back to Maine in September for donating.
Another one of the Maine Happy Block quilts is finished. This one is #5 of 8 and I have another one waiting for binding and two more waiting for quilting and then this batch will be done.
I finished the binding on this Sashed Tumbler yesterday so I’m making good progress on the goals I have for the rest of June. Can’t you see how cuddly it is from the photo?! This is my 10th UFO finish for the year!
There are some quilt notes on the website if you’re curious about how I pieced this one.
Two more of the Maine Happy Block quilts are done – I finished the binding on both of them last night.
One made using a variety of novelty fabrics for the center.
And one made using a single novelty fabric for the center.
I love striped bindings and I had the perfect one in my stash for this quilt.
Brief instructions for the Happy Blocks for Maine can be found on my website at this link.
I finished the binding on my HeartStrings quilt yesterday so I’m making progress all the way around! I love how the freehand Baptist Fan quilting turned out on this one and if you missed the post with the information on how I quilt them – click here. This is my 8th UFO finish for the year!
