UFO Work

This UFO challenge is really making me get some things done, and I am so glad to be participating. A week ago, I had no idea what I'd do with the stack of hand-pieced 9-patch blocks I'd made and accumulated. But now, I not only have a plan, I have some stitching done on them, and I like how it is all coming together.

When I sewed with Sharon on Tuesday, I made all of these units for setting the blocks on point. I have them stacked in 5 rows because that is how many columns I decided I wanted in this quilt. It will be queen size when finished.

And then I laid the setting column fabric next to the blocks to get a visual of how well this was working together. I like this a lot! I then needed to cut the vertical setting columns. After that I took all the parts to the guest room and - TA-DA!!

Now I just need to get back to the sewing machine. This week has been filled with things other than sewing, I'm afraid. I hosted the Frankfort girls yesterday morning, so I had cleaning to do, and a coffee cake to make. I also have to get a book read for book club which is next Friday. And on top of all that, we had a little scare with Grandma on Wednesday and Thursday. She has bounced back a bit, and is improving, but gosh I was worried. You may have noticed a 2-day absence here, and now you know why. Life is happening!

I am hoping for both some sewing time and some reading time this weekend.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

For someone who, a short while ago, didn't know what she was going to do with those blocks, you have surely made a lot of progress.

I hope your grandmother gets well soon.
