I love to go through my UFO's at the beginning of each year and I always have a strong urge to work on them.
Sew It's Finished is a blog cared for by Wendy and Dawn and it's for encouraging us to work on our projects and try and get one finished each month. I joined in a couple of years ago with great success (even though I ended up starting just as many so at the end of the year I still had just as many UFO's - just different ones!)
I'm going through my boxes and things, taking pictures and setting up a page to list them... this is what motivates me as I like ticking off things and out of sight is out of mind in my case so if I can see them I remember....
So here is my list page and I haven't bothered to count them.... there are also a bunch of stitcheries that are sewn and not made up... I will go through them in time so I can remember what I sewed!
I am delighted that I have just finished one of them!!! and its the HUGEST one too
I have been diligently hand stitching the binding down in the evenings this week... all 432" or 10.8metres!
It covers our Queen Size bed very well....
the top is made completely from scraps
I struggled to find a backing I liked so I bought a doona cover from Ikea ($20 special) and cut it and joined again to make it the right size.... I love the backing too so it makes a great alternative if I want a change!
I showed the quilting I did for the blocks HERE.... it took a while!!
this quilt was made in stages over the last few years.... I'm thrilled with having a good size quilt for my bed - though at the moment it is too hot for it so it will just be a day time cover.
Righto, Gotto Go... there's more UFO's lurking.....
