Design Wall Monday

2017 UFO Busting continues.
This table runner is finish number 6.
This is from July 2009.
I put it away and promptly forgot where I put it.
 I thought it was gone forever.
Recently I opened a bin to get something else out and there it was.
How long had it been since I had opened that bin?

I asked on Facebook which color binding I should use.
I even posted pictures of a few selections but no red.
Only because I didn't have any that looked good with these repro prints.
Thousands of Bolts to the rescue again!

I finished and wore another new shirt.
I made a design chance,
then neck too low for my comfort so I added a piece of lace.
After wearing it, 
I'll take the lace off and rework the neck.
I have enough fabric to combine with another piece 
and I'll use the lace on that one.

My plan to work on this month's UFO was put on hold.
I chased a squirrel instead.
I wrote my story here.

I see some great links at Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.
I think I'll chase a few squirrels. 😀

I think this is the first time I visited, clicked thru the Design Wall. I have tons of UFOs to finish and was beginning to think I should just throw them away but after reading your post and seeing that people do actually continue to work on them, I might have to rethink it. Great projects.

Are you hand or machine piecing the Mischief quilt? Looks great!

Did you catch the squirrels?

It ws fun to Quilt by Committee on your Runner. The Squirrels are trying to catch me. I'm trying to avoid them, as much as I try, they're still there. The hand work project looks sew fun! Cute shirt too!

I have that promptly forgotten syndrome too! Glad you found it. I've rescued too low necklines with lace before too. I also like a lace trimmed tank for that! Enjoy the nuts feeding your squirrel!

Another sweet finish! I love your hexies set with the tiny triangles between them. It really sets them off and apart. I new to find the little squirrel that will make me do some sewing. I have 2 quilts waiting on me.

Hooray for a finish, Judy! May your other distractions this week be equally productive. Remember that your paper-pieced beauty is a long-term project.
