I think I shocked a few of my readers by admitting I didn’t have any UFOs in my last post. I find that when I start a quilting project I just can’t stop and want to see it through to the end. The quilting is my favourite part so why would I stop! Well after going to our guilds UFO day yesterday you’ll be happy to know that I now have one UFO. I starting cutting out and sewing Metro Hoops, a Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern that I have been wanted to make since Jenny released it. My friend Desley is going to start this one soon too so this is the nudge to get her going on hers! :)
I got all my fabric cut out, did all the strip piecing and cut out the curves. It was a very enjoyable process and easy to do even when you are socializing. I made one complete block to see how my fabric choices looked and I’m please with the result. I used a jelly roll called Sunnyside by Moda, a solid white and yellow for the background and solid light blue for the diamonds. I’m loving all the open space in this pattern and see it as a huge quilting opportunity.
Today it is snowing again so looks like a good day to get all the blocks sewn up!
I was pretty excited yesterday to see I reach 700 followers! The funny thing is this is my 707th post so I almost have as many followers as I have done posts!
