Month end.....


My WOOFA challenge UFO this month was the Chevron quilt.... which just required the binding put on it... 

I already showed more detail on this quilt HERE....


Thanks Cheryll for keeping us on track with getting through some of our UFO's...

I have taken this little bag and needlecase to work on in August ....


I also join in with the Sunday Stitchers and their UFO challenge each month, where they allocate a number to 12 different UFO's and we get told on their meeting dates the next number....

June/July was #12 which was my Tote Bags...

I bought these panels last year .... just beautiful ....


and this was a pair of panels given to me years ago....


I backed each panel with a layer of iron on Parlan and gave them a lining.  These wildlife ones I gave a different back so I could get 3 totes....


I used the pattern from The Quilters Angel which had been designed specifically for the panels... they have some new gorgeous botanical bird  kits in now... hmmmmm tempting !

but the larger one is just one bag with two sides different....


This months number for SS's is #5 which is my socks.  I have made a good start... I had one sock made so it's just doing it's partner.  I am using 4 ply wool so it takes quite a few rows to get that long foot done!!


Progress has been made on my Love quilt and I have added some borders


and ordered some EPP papers so that I can do them on that stripey border.... some honeycomb and square shapes... 


This is the pattern I am using... there is another border on the edge with more EPP  after some fun piecing and needleturn....

Certainly getting some EPP practice in this one...


Righto, Gotto Go..... a bit of tidying and sorting is required then get on with a quilt job....

Have  a lovely rest of the week....

Lots of lovely work happening. When you put it all together like this you realise how productive you have been.

You're doing so well on all your UFOs and smaller projects. I'm in love with your "Love" quilt. It is going to be absolutely beautiful. I really need to get a few of my current projects done so that I can start on my version. It will be another long term project for me, with my love/hate relationship with hand stitching.

Your chevron quilt looks very pretty and your Love quilt is awesome. I particularly love how you are going to add shapes to the borders and I shall look forward to seeing the progress. Your totes are gorgeous! Lots of projects happening there.

Well done on all the month's achievements Fiona; so great to tick off a few of those projects that have been waiting in the wings for a while. Those tote bags are ever so cute. (Hmm not sure about the possum though!) And I love your Love quilt - I liked it in the original blues but really love the bits of colour you are putting in yours.
