Herding and branding UFO's
I've hunkered down a bit the past week...hiding from the heat! Determined to clear out a few UFO's this summer I have made a pile and started "kitting" them up so there is no excuse not to work on them whenever I have a minute or an ounce of extra energy. MY Dh looked at my "organized" piles with their post-it notes and called it branding time....
I did finish a quilt-top from the UFO pile. Not my oldest UFO but not my newest either. I have a set of 6-7 blocks from the 1940's with this pattern (BB #1654, Richmond or Pinwheel) and I had wanted to reproduce them for a long time. In the end instead of reproducing them in pastels I went for my reproduction stack instead.
Now this moves to the "to be quilted" pile...which is getting alarmingly large again!
