The Taming Of The Ufo's ......

 .......continues. :)

I've appliqued the stitcheries onto the tree so it's now ready to quilt. Not sure how i want to do that yet.


These blocks were next in the pile. One just needed borders, another a background to be pieced & as i went to iron it down to applique i realised it needed a flower & leaf added. I vaguely remember having to remove them when i did the stitching. lol. The others borders for hexies to be appliqued & the other applique & embroidery.




As i only bought 5 blocks from this quilt project i will need to figure a setting for them once i've finished the applique & embroidery. I have heaps of B & C fabrics/scraps so at least i'll have matching fabrics. I'm thinking a 9 patch setting using churn dash blocks or something simple.

Yesterday i took out these remaining 4 blocks from a set of 20 i had. I looked back through photo's & found i'd made 2 runners from them back in 2020. Oh dear. Those blocks had been hanging around longer than that though. :) I went with a simple 9 patch to join them.
I'm hoping the dye that ran will wash out with a colour catcher when i wash the runner.

The other project from yesterday is a recent ufo. I was making this for Halloween last year but no matter which way i tried sewing it together the blades looked twisted. I had 3 goes before i chucked it aside. I thought if it didn't work this time i was chucking it in the bin. Just the quilting & binding to do on it now.

My small ufo projects basket is slowly emptying (wish i could say the same for the large projects) & it's a lovely sight to see but this morning i was looking in another basket to see what was in there. Hmm a stitchery ready to stitch( placed in wrong basket) & a half finished project. Sigh. Oh well at least it was only 1 ufo. Well unless you count my Mum's apple core ufo. :) then it's 2. lol.

Happy Stitching
