Almost Mid Month UFO Progress Report

Normally, at the first of the year, I'm all gung ho on my UFO project.
The only thing I have done is measure it and decided not to add a border. 
I'm going to use it at the beach for a sit outside cover up.
I ordered a baptist fan stencil and it came the other day.
I need to decide how to mark it so the marks stay on while quilting 
but come off when I'm finished.
I'll probably just mark one row at a time. 
How will that work with my pin basting?
I don't know.
 I'm not a spray baster,
I might have to convert and become one.

I have been working on my #4 UFO in the evenings while watching TV 
This is the zip bag of parts and pieces.
I decided today it was time to lay it on the bed and decided exactly what I need to do to finish it.
I knew I needed more full rosettes to get it to the size I want.

So here's my chicken scratch list on top of my box of more parts, pieces and papers.

For a minute I thought I might call the blue row my last and finish filling in the top with half yellow/orange rosettes.
Then I told myself to not wimp out and finish it like I originally wanted.
This is an awesome design my Mickey Depre of Pieced Hexies fame.
This is her free On The Road Project for 2016-1017.
I started mine August 2016.

I'm hoping to have it ready to quilt when #4 is called for Judy L's UFO Challenge.

Great job, Judy! The Rosettes are so pretty.

I like spray basted quilts but they are easier to do with two people. Well, I think pin basting is easier with two people too! Great job on your progress so far. I love Baptist fans on just about any style quilt.

At least you are working on something! I am still cleaning....I will get done tomorrow, I must!

You are off to a great start on tackling those UFOs. I have spray basted, but only on smaller quilts. It was really smelly. Washable markers are great for quilting lines if you are planning to wash it. Otherwise, you could try frixion pens, they stay put really well.

Nice work! How are things in your part of our state?
