A couple of other fun facts are:

I won 3 yards from A Lovely Year of Finishes.
They are background fabrics, so I'm sure they will be used quickly.

NYE UFO Complete

It is done.
Now to wash it and I'll have one waiting when needed.
I like the simplified version of this quilt.

Quilt is quilted & ready to bind

My NYE Mystery UFO is quilted and the binding is ready to sew down. 
 Maybe I'll get it started and finished tonight.


I have been cutting out a test quilt too.
Really need to get that accomplished soon.

Prairie Moon organization challenge

Organize something that is bothering you


What should I pick????
Well, let's say the side desk.
I normally keep the desk fairly neat after school is over.
But, everything gets piled to the side.

So, that is my task this week.

Design wall Monday

I am working on this one to add the borders on the 4 little pieces

I'm sewing the top row together and then to add to the sides of the center and figure out what else to do.

Crazy UFOs

I did not finish all my planned UFOs from January.
But, I've been reminded that these challenges are to just get me making progress and I did that.

All People Quilt
January
I finished it.
It was not what it was originally planned to be, but it became a quilt.

February
Purple and green 9 patches

Stashbuster numbers
January
#3 Ann's 2009 NYE Mystery
I am loading it now and will quilt and finish this one.

#51 Fall Table Runner
I have it laid out and need to do a few more things on it.
I like this one and probably will finish it.

I finished it and won't do another.
Did not like the process.

#7 Applique Turtles
This might not happen
#21 Children's Book - Tidings
I will probably work on this one.
It is cute, but needs sashing to adjust the size of the pages.

Prairie Moon
This is a personal challenge the Prairie Moon folks and holding me accountable for,
January
#7 Band T-shirt quilt
This one is ready to sew the center together and then I have to finish it.
February
#1 Western Sunset
Doesn't look like more than a few pieces were cut.
Why?
When was it started? Who knows.
My family room is a western theme, so maybe I can use this in there.

January
Christmas Tree Applique

February
Buffalo Tote
I've wanted to get this done for so long.
I honestly think it will become more than one bag.
I see I've cut out all the panels and some of the strips.

Sampler Society is another one that is helping me, but it is not an official challenge.
January/February is the Sunkissed Table runner.
This has so many applique pieces to it that I am now on the flowers.
Need to do leaves after tha.
It should be finished in February.

OMG Finish

I really need to get a camera to use.
Not a great photo, but it is finished.
Doesn't look puckered in person.
This is my January OMG finish.
