A few weeks ago my husband’s aunt came for a visit. Now if you’re like me, that meant taking all the quilts out of storage. Otherwise known as the guest room.
That also meant I had to clear out the things under the bed.
All of this preparation could be a good thing. You find lots of things you’d forgotten about. Or it could be a bad thing. You find lots of things you were happy to forget about.
Well I found lots of UFOs !
I don’t remember where I was going with this one, but now it will be a table runner.
This is a paper pieced mini. I think it will be a mug rug.
This is a UFO that was pieced in 1998! I no longer like these colors, so I will give this one away or donate it to charity when it is finished.
These blocks I remember very well. I made them to cut up and make into new blocks but after a few I didn’t like them. I don’t think they will all end up in the same quilt. ( may be destined to live out their lives as UFOs)
I remembered where I was going with this one, but I’ve decided to change the border after completing the blocks. I was going to use a green stripe, but now I’ve chosen white with pink dots. I’ll use the stripe for the binding.
Now finding and working on all these UFOs should be a good thing, right? There’s only one problem, all of the fabric I have to put back into my stash because it wasn’t used as I originally intended.
None of you have UFOs, do you?
Today is my brothers birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCEL !!!!!

Here’s a close up of the quilting and the hand stitching I’m doing on the Hexagon pillow. I’ve planned on a little more stitching, but we’ll see how it goes.
HAPPY CANADA DAY! To our neighbors.
