UFOs Bite the Dust


This UFO has been finished for a long time - since Veterans' Day, actually. I finished it on the day we all sewed at Sherrie's. I just haven't taken the opportunity to photograph it and show it to you all. You can tell that it's been folded up for awhile. I should have pressed it for it's blog debut, but ehh, well...


This UFO is quite old. If I had to fathom a guess, I'd say between 15-20 years old. I was crazy about paper-piecing when it first came on the scene. These blocks are made using that method. Mostly, I was just playing around with scraps and I got carried away. I got it back out about a year ago, and made a few more blocks so I'd have enough for a nice throw, and then I sewed the top together. When I put the border on, I was really lazy, and didn't measure like I should have. The resulting borders were so wavy that they just looked hideous. So I put it away again. (My M-O.)

For the UFO Challenge, my goal was to remove the offending borders, measure correctly, and reattach. Easy stuff. I did that and now I'm happy.


So the items on the UFO list continue to be checked off. Bit by bit, I am getting it whittled down. Nice.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

sounds like you're getting through your UFO mountain. I think I need to start working on mine too.
