#4? These won’t be in order! I’ve joined a UFO Challenge with my local quilt store, which is perfect since my new year’s resolution was to complete my UFO’s in 2017 😀
I submitted 6 UFO’s that I will complete in 6 months. Every completion guarantees one entry into the prize drawing. The grand prize winner get’s 50% of total registration fees in the form of a gift card and there are also 2nd and 3rd prize winners. But best of all, you get your projects completed! What makes this fun and challenging is waiting for the number to be drawn. Whichever number the shop draws, is the number of the challenge I will work on. April is #4 and #4 on my list is to complete my quilted potholders.
Last year, I had a sew day with my mom, aunt, and grandmother. We all split a jelly roll to make 4 potholders each, but we each only completed a single potholder that day. The pile of potholder fronts and backs and a pile of insul-bright have been sitting in my sewing room for an entire year. This was definitely one of the easier projects on my UFO list.
Last weekend I joined my mom at her local quilt shop for a sit and sew and I completed the 3 remaining potholders. Added a little twill loop to the corner for hanging and voila!
My little potholders are hanging above the stove, ready for action 🙂 Looking forward to May’s UFO Challenge…wish me luck!
