OMG! Project for July

I'm just sliding in under the wire here!  I haven't gotten my OMG! projects posted the past few months, and I really want to be sure to do that the rest of this year if I can.  It's a FUN party to join - with prizes!!! - hosted by Heidi at Red Letter Quilts.  There's always something fun going on over there!  So if you haven't been playing along, I'd love to encourage you to quickly post your own July project :*)

I always like to partner this party with my Guild's monthly UFO Challenge, and this month the number called was #5 - for me, this means finishing up this little wall-hanging .....

I'm calling this one Moon Over Meowmi - isn't that just the cutest name???  Yep, I think so too!  And of course you know I love anything to do with cats, especially in my quilts =^..^=

This UFO was started waaaaaaayyyyyyy back in October of 2013.  In checking back over my posts, I found that I listed it as my NewFO project for July of that year.  So, this project is now officially 3 years old and still hasn't budged an inch toward completion since that last post!  *shaking head in shame!*  (And by the way, if you're wondering what a "NewFO" is, it was a monthly challenge that used to be offered by my friend Barbara over at her most excellent blog, Cat Patches.  I do miss that party, but my UFO shelves are simply groaning at the weight of all the projects I started while playing along!)

And when I say started, I mean just that - started!  I traced off the pattern pieces onto fusible ... and that was that.  Nada.  Nothing else.  It's still sitting awaiting further orders from me!  I'm really glad I put this cute wall-hanging on my UFO list because I really love it and will enjoy having it done.  What will you try to finish up this month?

Hugs & Blessings!


  1. It will be really cute. Good luck with it.

  2. Very cute project - yes, it needs to be finished.

  3. Can't wait to see your finish at the August meeting. This reminds me of my friend who has 2 black cats. And, my granddaughter (now 21) used to sing about jellicle cats when she was about 4 years old and loved the Cats musical video.

  4. Such a cute project, and the name is perfect.
    BTW, I love the old movie "Moon Over Miami" with Betty Grable, and Bob Cummings. : )
    I am trying to finish a housewarming gift wall hanging for a friend that moved about 2 years ago (hanging head in shame).

  5. I think we all have those projects that never seem to come back up to the light of day. This one looks like it will be much fun to work on.

  6. Perfect name. Be careful. You'll end up with a wall full of cat quilts like someone else I know!

  7. What a cute project Teresa and I know you'll get it done this month now that you have showed it to all of us! Can't wait to see it!

  8. Hey, all that tracing takes time. I have a whole list of things that need to be done, either this month, or shortly afterwards.

  9. Good luck! It's darling! Stay focused! XO

  10. Very cute! I have UFOs of all types......
