July Finish

I aim to finish at least one UFO a month.

And if you don't know the drill:    I joined Sew Its Finished a couple of years ago to encourage me to do this - and this year I also joined up with Peg & Kris for OPAM  and to top it off Aunt Marti issued a challenge to finish 13 projects in 2013.  Marti picks a number and we are meant to have numbered the 13 projects and do that number in that month.  Well, this month I have had to cheat a bit.  The project this month should have been #8 and that was making a cushion out  of a piece of machine quilting I did way back - I mean really way back.... I will leave the details for now....so - off I went and bought some homespun for the backing and the cushion insert....Come time to make it....Where the heck is the piece of machine quilting???? I have searched and searched...it must be here...tucked away.... so I had to find another project.


This was started in....well maybe before 2005 (shame shame.....but wait til I find the machine quilted piece....).  The top was all done  - it was sitting in its little labelled box with the backing and binding already made.  




So, now I have a spare box...wonder what I will find to go in it???   Maybe my piece of machine quilting?

  3. I admire you being so organised. My UFOs are just folded in the cupboard. Luckily I don't have that many. The 13 in 2013 sound like a great idea too.

  10. That rascally UFO! Its hiding from you - maybe it wants to be a quilt and not a cushion! It will turn up the minute you can't find the backing fabric and cushion insert!

  12. I hope you find your #8 as it sounds like it's just sitting safe somewhere in your sewing room. Maybe you should replace it with the swapped UFO =^.^= Feels so good to empty UFO boxes! Sandi
