Working on a very old UFO!

Last month I pulled out 2 very old UFOs. I sent some of the blocks over to my fellow bees to enlist their help to make some blocks for me and try to get those 2 projects closer to a finishing point. One of the 2 UFO was also my goal for my August Lazy Bum challenge. So I started the month with this pile of blocks

with the aim to make a quilt top with them. Until last week I didn't think the pile of blocks would move an inch but... I am really happy to report some progress! I ironed all the blocks and sew them together into rows and I also sew the rows together into a top.

Now I am still waiting for a few blocks back from my fellow bees so I couldn't finish my quilt top but at least there is some progress. I need to unpick one row that I have added at the wrong place and I need to add 2 extra rows for the top. Of course, I haven't made the borders yet either but at least I know what I want to do now! Who knows, this one might move out of the UFO list soon?

  1. Excellent progress I think Celine! Well done! Could this be a Christmas finish?

    I haven't done anything with my August project but for some reason have started on another one ?? But it is all good if I get anything stitched!
