Here we are in the 8th month of our 12-month UFO challenge, and this month's task will be a pleasure to finish. After a few months of really big-deal UFOs, this one is gonna seem like a cakewalk. Yay!
Last summer, just on a whim and with no particular goal in mind, I began stitching large hexagons. I must have needed some hand-stitching to take to Friday morning sessions with the Frankfort Girls. Well, I finished this little table topper and then just stopped. I knew it would perfectly accessorize the screened porch table; instead it has hung out in the quilting room. I had the good sense to put it on the 2017 UFO list, and now it will finally be done. Above, you can see that I trimmed the edges. What I'm left with is a long, hexagon-shaped table topper.
I prepped the backing and the batting last night (used scraps, so I had to piece them!). The layers have been spray-basted, and the materials for big-stitch quilting have been gathered. I am ready for some Slow Sunday Stitching!
This work should go quickly; with all the baseball we've been watching lately, I need a project like this in my hands; otherwise, I idly play iPad games, which results in nothing worthwhile.
I will link up with Kathy and her Sunday Stitching link party; come on over an take a peek! I've just visited and discovered that my name was drawn in a give-away she had last week. How sweet is that!?!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
