Getting Closer...

To the finish! I started late start this weekend to finish my UFO "Civil War Chronicles". I actually started putting the blocks together late Saturday night and yesterday after Church. I underestimated my timing on this quilt! *ugh*  Here is the center of this quilt. 

Center Block

I tried several ways to take a good picture and this is the best one. Still trying to learn how to take good pictures. Anyway, I need to add a "HUGE" triangle on all four sides. Then sew the 68 - 6-1/2" blocks together for the border. 

I hope when I am done putting this quilt together, the sun is out so I can lay this quilt outside for a good photo. 

Have a wonderful week. You know what I will be doing! (=

Next On The List...

Or should I say "Next on my bucket" list! In 2009, I started Civil War Chronicles. After cutting and sewing pieces together, I put the project aside. Every BOM kit, I had to make at least a quantity of 4 16" blocks. However, one of the BOM kits, I had to make 68 6"blocks! You read right...Sixty Eight Blocks!!! I believe that is when I put the whole project in its own container. I was BURNED OUT! 

So to get this project done, this weekend, my plan is to work on it. Here are the blocks laid out on my cutting table. Now to put them together. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Do find some time to do something you so enjoy doing.

Another UFO...

Off my bucket list! Better late than never...Right? 

 February Quilt is finished. YAY! Finished quilt size is 80" x 98". I made a couple of changes. Truth be told, I messed up while cutting. The blue strips you see around the center should have been an orange piece. I am happy with the results.

3's Company BOM

Now to decide should I custom quilt or all over quilting. I am still new to longarm quilting. So I think I will wait until I feel comfortable.

Now to move on to my next project. I need to get caught up on my other projects and decide what will be my next UFO.

Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day. It was quiet here at home.

Until next time,
