I am catching up with a few things but I also still have loads on the go of course! I like to have more than one thing going (!) (well in reality I probably have about 20) but I also like to finish some stuff! I am resisting very hard at the moment to just run and start a new project. There is a Midnight in the Oasis quilt-along over on Sharon's blog Fabrics and Flowers. Well I have the pattern, from Quiltmania, I have identified the focus fabric and the background as well I think. What do you think? Polka dots or map?
but... I am trying to be good and finish other things first.
So this week I started some Christmas coasters for a swap. They only need quilting now so I am hoping to have them ready very soon! I really like this red Scandinavian fabric and paired with the green it makes for a lovely traditional Christmas feeling I think.
I also got out some blocks I got from a bee last year, which have made it to my UFO list. They were made based on a pattern in 99 Modern Blocks. I have 11 blocks in total because one of the bee member dropped out half-way through. I was considering making a 12th blocks but while playing with the blocks I already had I realised one was a lot bigger than the others, which is not too bad as it is only because the seam allowances were not very accurate. So I am taking this block apart and will sew it back to fit.
I am thinking of taking it apart anyway and maybe using it on the back of the quilt, since effort and time has been spent by someone else for me, I feel really bad leaving it out. This is also my Lazy Bum challenge for November so I should really finish this quilt by the end of the month, doable? Stay tuned!
