March UFO Challenge

This month Judy L pulled UFO #1 for the challenge. This is my #1, blocks from a small internet group BOM that started in August 2009.


The blocks are 9" finished and I did pretty good keeping up with making the blocks, then I stalled. After playing in EQ7, I came up with an on point design and needed to make one more block. I chose the heart block in the center. That is the block we use when we make a comfort quilt for a group member and I thought it belonged there. Then the printed quilt picture and the blocks went into the bag and into the UFO bin until I pulled them out for this challenge.

I used only fabrics that were in my scrap basket and 2 fabrics for the backgrounds. I stuck with that plan for the whole year. I decided this weekend would be a good time to finally get the top put together.

Last night I left the sewing room with this ready to put on the final border today. While playing in EQ7, I ended up with 4 different border designs. I decided to not go with a pieced border so this quilt does not stay a UFO.

And now for my confession~~February's UFO, still not finished! Yes, I know, sad face here too!

Love it Judy! I agree that Jake's Heart belongs there! I think I finished only 4 blocks... Hmmm, I wonder where I could find the list of blocks?

Judy, I love it! Get this UFO going and done. You hit it on the nail with pieced borders: I wouldn't get a single quilt done with them. I love the look, but they bring my projects to a squeaking halt - and UFO status...

It looks wonderful, Judy. And well on it's way to being finished.

It looks great...really like the setting. I didn't get my Feb UFO finished either. Oh well...

The darker sashing and setting triangles unify the blocks perfectly! Amazing color choice!

Diane said...

The green setting triangles are just perfect. Glad you are getting this one crossed off the list. Maybe you can catch up on February later, for now feel happy about making good progress on March.

I didn't finish February either. And my #1 started out as bits in a bag. I have started sewing it!

Good luck with your UFOs.

Great blocks and I love the setting fabrics.

This looks great! The colors are great together. February was a short month. It's ok to not finish your UFO, the important thing is you worked on it, right??? Anyway, don't beat yourself up, just keep working until you finish! Enjoy the journey!

Very, very pretty(!), and I love that the blocks are 'on point'. I've never made a quilt with that layout.
