The UFO Challenge has certainly been a good idea for me. There's no way I would have had some of the recent finishes I've shared here if it weren't for the prodding I get because of our challenge.
On Friday, we drew the number for April's project. Number 5. On my list, number 5 is "blue and beige monkey wrench."
Let's dig it out and investigate the situation.
Well! This is certainly a ravelly mess! I have 27 hand-pieced blocks stacked here. How old you ask? Well, they were made when my son was in high school and college, because I made them when I traveled to track and cross country meets. He graduated from high school in 2001 and graduated from college in 2005. It is entirely possible that I made some of these when he was a high school freshman, so that takes us back to 1997. Whoa. We are approaching 18 years?!? Well, yes, I guess that is possible.
They've been stored in this tub/tote. Safe and secure. Spool of thread and several needles, too. Wait till you see all the rest.
My goal for April is to get these blocks made into a quilt top. I have some ideas incubating, and I will be sure to keep you all in the loop with my decisions.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
