March UFO Challenge

This is what my Design Wall looks like this morning.  Even with a four-day retreat at the end of the month, I still did not manage to finish the Moonglow quilt top, which was my March UFOChallenge project.  I did make very good headway however, so I’m not too terribly disappointed. 

I think it will take me another week to finish it up, which unfortunately means a late start on the April UFO project.  And that is not good since Judy pulled #10 for April and my #10 is the Aqua Irish Chain Shop Hop quilt.  That is a project that is barely even started!  It will take a lot of work to complete it.  * sigh *  I have several other commitments and a week of travel this month too.... all of which adds up to the fact that I need to just accept that it is highly unlikely I will meet my April Challenge either – bummer!!!

This is what I currently have complete on Moonglow.


I have all the alternate blocks complete, and only have 4 of the 13 mariner’s compass blocks remaining.  See the 4 holes that look like missing teeth?  Two of the missing blocks are paper-pieced and ready to be assembled…


I’m hoping to get the 4 blocks done and the 7 borders (really??  Who puts SEVEN borders on a quilt?!?) applied by the end of this coming week.  I also need to think about starting my May Calendar quilt.  Whew – I’m worn out already and it’s only the first day of the month!  :*)

Go to Patchwork Times to see other Design Walls and UFO Challenge projects.  I am also linking up with BOM's Away at What a Hoot! as this is a BOM project from 2010.

Have a wonderful week.  It is one of my favorite weeks of the year, the week before Easter.  It is such a profound week, filled with memories of all that our Saviour did for us so that we can have life with Him forever.  I hope you will feel Him close to you this season and feel His love surrounding you in all that you do!!!

Hugs & Blessings!

  1. Oh, Moonglow always makes my heart flutter with delight. I just realized it makes me think of the Northern Lights with those beautiful shades of blues, greens and purples against the black backdrop.
    Beautiful thought of Easter and the Savior, Teresa!

  2. Why can't you put 7 borders on the quilt? With all those colors in the quilt, you could make a rainbow of borders to finish it off.

  5. Looking great so far. Maybe you should cancel April's UFO and just continue with March's.

  7. Maybe you could find another UFO that is almost done and switch the numbers to allow more time to finish Moonglow. It will be well worth the extra time. Hope you make it all work out.

  11. I vote for finishing MoonGlow and not worrying about the April UFO right now. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter Holiday with your family.
