I did it! I finished 2 of my UFO’s that have been sitting around for years and will now be donated to our guild community service group.
So back in 2013 I finished piecing the Red, White and Blue top and was waiting for the size so I could decide on border and backing. Doggone thing has been sitting here for awhile waiting to be quilted! I started working through the quilting on this and as I was winding another set of bobbins, I ran out of thread! Had to make an emergency trip to Joann’s to get another spool for red, white and blue thread so I could finish. Looking back I should have just done an all over pattern, but that’s ok it still looks good!
I don’t even know how long I’ve had this UFO, I wanted to play with fusible interfacing and just started pulling 2″ scraps. You fold each row and do your 1/4″ seam, then do the same going in the opposite direction. It’s been sitting here so long, but I remember a lot of these fabrics and wish I had saved them for hexies.
I’m happy to finally have 2 more off the UFO list, now I need to get busy on some of the bigger ones!!

I’ve been slowly working on blocks for the #EPPParty and finished block 7 over the weekend. Block 8 is released today and I’ll have to start working on that this week. I have 2 quilts all basted and ready to quilt and I’m finishing up the binding on a Quilts of Valor quilt I brought home from the last meeting. School will be starting soon and I hope be to able to spend a little more time working on projects!
I’ve also had to put handwork to the side recently because I needed to get a wedding gift completed. It was delivered to the groom last week, so I can post about it now. We didn’tgo to the wedding because it was out of the country and there was just no way we could go, but we did still want to give them a gift. So I stitched up my usual wedding gift, a small cross stitch piece in a frame with space for a wedding picture. The groom loved it, so I’m happy!

I’ve chosen 2 quilts from my UFO list to finish this month. Both just need quilted and it will be simple quilting on both. I’m pretty sure that I will be donating both of them to our community service group at guild. I don’t have a use for them and they are small so my kids can’t really use them. I’ve gotten them pinned today and I’m hoping to start the quilting this weekend. We have a weekend at home with no plans, I’m hoping I can spend a lot of it quilting!
