I'm Blaming the Super Bowl Project

I've said several times that I wasn't going to start any new projects until I got some of my UFO's taken care of. I caved and did the New Year's Mystery at Quiltville. Those blocks are done but not sewn together yet. Then Bonnie comes up with an idea to make her Strip Twist as Super Bowl Sunday Project. Who am I to not participate! I've made this quilt once and it lives in the living room and is used all the time. The above fabrics are from a fat quarter pack that I got for Christmas a couple years ago and didn't know what I was going to use them for This is the perfect project.

I wasn't a very good quilter yesterday, I got my stips cut and sewn into pairs. I got sucked into Ravelry and found a scarf pattern that I wanted to make. So I pulled out my needles and a skein of yarn and watched the last part of the game with hubby as I worked on the scarf.

Today I finished quilting this fabulous Mom/Baby quilt. I found the pattern in a Country Quilts Magazine-no dates on any of the pages-and tore the pages out of the magazine and put them in my notebook. I had a small collection of reproduction fabrics and knew I wanted to use them on this quilt. The block is from Quilter's Cache called Next Do0r Neighbor and the magazine article is called Hey, Neighbor!

I had sewn this top at a retreat in November so it hasn't aged a long time. I'll sew the binding on it next and stitch it down Wednesday at Marion. This one is on the list as UFO #23 and will soon be listed as DONE!

Now I must work on UFO #22. I think I'll at least put the blocks up on the wall and maybe that will inspire me a little more.
