January finish


At the beginning of 2012 I decided to participate in the 2012 UFO Challenge over on the Patchwork Times blog, and I made my list of 12 unfinished projects that I'd like to bring to completion this year. Judy chooses a number each month, and that is the project that we work on.

January was project #5 which for me was my disappearing nine patch, a simple small quilt which I just had to sew the blocks together, quilt and bind. I used the baptist fan pantograph to quilt it and hand stitched the binding whilst waiting for Lizzie at her swimming club session on a Tuesday night. Over the weekend I found some extra blocks in my sewing machine case so I think they will have to be donated for charity quilts to Astra.

The UFO to work on for February was released today. Fingers crossed again for it not to be the Jan Krentz star quilt!! Oh heck, my luck's run out already. Project #1 has been chosen. Okay this will be a challenge as I can't remember all the tips we were given and I have this horrible feeling that I may have used some of the fabrics for other projects.
