Liz brought a UFO challenge to my attention. It's on www.allpeoplequilt.com and you'd think I wouldn't have any UFOs left after my heroic finishes last year, but it turns out that I have!
So, the challenge is to list 12 UFOs, and then at the beginning of each month, check back to the site, where that month's number will be revealed. I made the list, and the project to finish first is number 6!
I have all the blocks done, I just couldn't be bothered to put them all up on the design wall! That will be an easy finish, especially since I went over to Manchester and couldn't resist another visit to Abakhan, where I bought 1.64kg of gorgeous fabrics especially for backing. I even participated in their button bag discount promotion, where picking a button out of a little bag, could entitle you to free shopping! I got 10% off, which is not to be sneezed at!
Once the shops return to normal, I'll be looking for border fabric for Ivy's quilt. I decided to sash it in the end, and although I would have ideally used the pink fabric for all the sashing, there wasn't enough - the story of my life! So I used the red round the outside. It looks good, and I can't wait to finish it.
Happy New Year!
