UFO update

Three things to be happy about:
(1) fish fries
(2) old fashioned values
(3) a childhood nickname

Mine was Tansie - don't ask me why, but mama called me that all the time!

My bee's Christmas swap blocks are now officially put together and ready for quilting!

I went with black for the outer border; didn't want red or green or gold or white -- or to think about it any longer!

As I mentioned, my guild is doing the All People Quilt UFO challenge, it's a good way to stir up those UFO's that are hanging around!  I want to do some more work on my Baltimore Album quilt blocks, but before I can do them I need to make scrap yardage!

Working on yellows and blues right now...
a bunch of blues done; I might need to make more, not sure at this point

and yellows!  a nice little pile of scrap yardage...

and next up - pink!

When I get some red and green and brown stockpiled I can start laying out more blocks.  What flower designs will I use?  I have no idea, I'm making this up as I go along!

That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. I love your scrap yardage! So colorful.

  2. OH how I love made fabric! It's one of my favorite things to do, and I usually do it just like you're doing.....monochromatically...blues, reds, greens, etc. I have seen made fabric done all 'helter skelter' color-wise, and I like it, but haven't had the guts to make any myself.....yet!

  3. At the risk of making a suggestion you probably already know, I also want to point out that you don't have to walk the journey alone.awriter.org
    Having a strong and healthy support group, whether they be family, good friends, or counselors, can empower you along the way.
