The blue feathered star is the next UFO I am going to be working on. I made it as part of a guild self taught class. I loved it but it got put on a back burner so I could work on other things. My plan is for this to be a table topper with friendship start all around the main block. First I will have to check to see if I have enough of the blue fabric.
The small block is my Eleanor Burns BOM. This is done with fusing appliqué, which I really like to do, but I think I would rather do this block in a regular piecing method. This BOM will be running until Feb or March so I don’t have to start thinking about how to put it together. But I do think I know what I will do with it when it is finished: but I’m not telling.
The last thing on the wall is a practice machine embroidery tiger that I will be putting on a shirt for my trip to the Outback Bowl. Be sure to check out the other design walls at Judy’s page.
So, as you can see, I am already setting up my sewing plans for the new year. I am collecting the instructions for Bonnie Hunter’s Carolina Christmas but won’t even think about that for a while. I have two other 2009 BOM’s finishing this month and three sets of swap blocks that need to be made into quilts so I will have UFOs to work on when 2010 rolls on in.
Saturday we had 5” of rain and our yard once again looks like we have waterfront property.Edit on 12/15: we got an additional 5" on Monday, 12/14, and it is still raining.
