If you checked in on this blog last week, I was working on my Braided Oriental Peacock, #5 on my UFO list in the 2012 UFO Challenge for January – and it is done! And I believe it is just as wonderful as I hoped it would be! Those aqua braids just shimmer!!! You can go to this post from a few days ago to see the completed quilt top and read more about the quilt.
I also completed quilting one of my UFO’s, although it was not the one listed under #5 on my list for quilted projects. Guess what folks? I’m counting it as my January challenge quilt!!!! Any time I get a quilt actually quilted is a big deal, and it counts! Considering that I am working from two UFO lists rather than one, I am giving myself lots of leeway here! =^..^= (Click here to see this one)
Since the January UFO’s are complete, I decided to use the rest of the month to try to get a head start on another UFO on the list. Several of them are going to take quite a lot of work to complete, so any time I can gain will be a good thing!
This is Moonglow by Jenny Beyer. It is a classic quilt that has been around a while, but I fell in love with it and signed up to do it as a BOM two years ago. Needless to say, I did not finish it in that year! Here is what I have done….
Pretty pitiful, huh? Five little blocks!!! The completed quilt has 13 pieced blocks (and not easy ones I might add!), and 12 alternate blocks in a Courthouse Steps/Irish Chain pattern. As I said, lots of work to do here folks!!! So without further ado, I’ll sign off and get busy stitching!
