UFO Progress

Like Jo of Jo's Country Junction, I set my En Provence aside to work on my UFO for the month.
I bought sashing and joining fabrics.
It's sad to admit that I didn't have enough of anything to do this step.
But I don't feel bad about buying new fabric to finish a project.
Action is being taken on my big plan!

Strips of fabric and batting were cut into appropriate lengths.
All 20 blocks were ready to sew.

I joined the batting to the seam allowance of the sashing and block with some interfacing strips.
A trick I learned from a Craftsy class with Marti Michell.
I love those classes!
I did some quilting and now
I have 7 blocks to do.
 I will trim them all to size and join into rows.

After revisiting the blog post from 2 years ago, 
I have decided to not add an outer border.
I feel really good about the progress on this project.
It's fun to revisit these blocks and remember the friends that made the blocks.
I feel a UFO about to be marked off the list.

Love your purples for sashings. My Mystery is on back burner too. Baby quilt has a closer deadline. Happy Snow Day, SEW Day.

Great to have a straight forward plan to finish a UFO!

It always feels so good to cross a UFO off the list. Definitely a good reason to need to buy more fabric, knowing it will be put to good use right away. A finish is very near!
