I missed out on the Q1 fun for the Finish-a-long over with Leanne at She Can Quilt, but I was very impressed with everyones recently posted finishes so here is my UFO list for Q2.
Back in July 2011 I joined the Kaleidoscope QAL and cut up my precious Denyse Schmidt Picnic Fairgrounds prints, but my template had printed to the wrong scale, my fabric was cut to the wrong size and being a novice I had no idea how to proceed. Using a new template I eventually plucked up the courage to have another go and managed one - yes one! - block, the right hand one... the left one is all puckered in the centre... I'm going to be realistic and just try to attempt to resurrect a couple more blocks from my already cut fabric on this project.
The Super Mario Quilt for my boys has turned into a bit of a labour of love! The small pieces in these blocks are getting to me and I keep taking breaks from it, which means there isn't alot of progress on it lately. I pledge to finish a few more blocks on this one.
The distinct lack of spring in the air prompted me to pull out my Laurie Wisbrun Modern Whimsy layer cake and add some zingy solids to the mix. This is a very recent WIP but with a few more pieced blocks and a bit of sashing in between it should come together quite quickly.
I'm looking forward to making a start but with the kids on school holidays for another week there may not be much time for sewing, seems all I've been doing today is refereeing! I also can't wait to see what projects everyone else is linking up, I'm off for a look!
