Now to the bragging: my record thus far in 2017 is 100%! I have somehow managed to finish the UFOs for January, February, March and April. For a seasoned, well-trained procrastinator like myself, this is unheard of! It boggles the mind!
|January - Mid-Century Reds|
|February - Lorraine|
|March - Small Tumblers|
|April - 9-Patch Strippy|
It is time to see what I will be focusing my attention on in May for this UFO Challenge. The number drawn was 5, so I will finish Navy Monkey Wrench.
I did hand piece all the blocks all those years ago, but only in the last year or two did I get around to machine stitching them with the setting squares. I have used a variety of blues and a variety of neutrals for a very scrappy 2-color quilt. The side and corner triangles are one consistent blue. The part you see above measures 50x59 inches. I stopped because I couldn't come up with a border that suited me. In the short time I've had it out of the closet this morning, I have decided that I will use a narrow neutral border and a wide navy border. That's all. So simple. It should be a breeze to finish. And of course, it will all be from the stash - no new fabrics will be used in the completion of this project. *grin*
Here's a few individual blocks; it may be easy to recognize some of the fabrics from back in the late 1990s.
With any luck at all, I should be able to brag about being 5-for-5 in rather short order. Yay! I've linked to Connie's Linky Tuesday blog; it's fun to see what other quilters are working on. I'm also going to consider this my OMG - One Monthly Goal - so I've linked with Elm Street Quilts for May's OMG party.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
