UFO Challenge #3

I completed my July UFO Challenge 🙂 #3 on the list was to complete my TBT (Traditional Block Thursday) quilt top. I started these blocks at the beginning of 2015 as a quilt along with Penny Rose Fabrics. Many of these quilt blocks were my early teachings of piecing.

Here’s the lovely fabric I found for the sashing and borders. The sashing has little triangles (Dear Stella Chroma Basics) and adds a little modern touch to this reproduction quilt.

Here’s all the blocks pieced together with sashing, and Neko supervising of course 🙂

As I worked through my quilt top, I noticed my thread running low. I’ve been working on this spool of thread…probably since I started this quilt!

I made it to the shop in time to get my completion check off and my name entered in the drawing. I received two submissions, one for the completion and the second for a large quilt top 😀 Now I just have to sew up a backing and quilt it! …maybe I’ll complete this quilt first thing next year… Little at a time, right?


SAL Update 8.6

I’m still stitching away in the sewing room and hope to share with you my progress there soon. For today, you can see I’ve also been working my way through Eeyore’s outlining. Almost done with his front legs 🙂 I think I’ll continue working to finish his outline and then begin filling in the grey. After, I’ll continue with Pooh and Piglet’s outline.

SAL Update 7.16

Hello stitching friends! Not much progress on my cross stitch these past 3 weeks. I did decide to continue on Eeyore’s end and move my way from left to right. As you can see, I was able to get some outlining started along Eeyore’s side.

While I haven’t accomplished much hand stitching, I was able to finish a baby quilt and finish the top of my Linus Project donation quilt. I also bought some reproduction fabric to finish my TBT Quilt top, which is due this month as well for my UFO Challenge. I’m very happy that it’s been a busy month in the sewing room. It was much needed 🙂
