I recently discovered Finish-A-Longs - what a great way to cheer on others who are working with UFOs.
Leanne at She Can quilt is hosting one, and the deadline to enter is midnight tonight. Just sneaking in under the wire for my first one.
Now to pick which projects I can reasonably complete. The primary rule I see is that it must be already started - so the PSSIMH are out (those are "projects still stuck in my head"). June 30-July 7 is the target for completion - so let me be reasonable.
First up - one that Gus is begging me to finish before he graduates high school (he is in the sixth grade, so there might be a touch of the dramatics happening...) is Gus's Dragon Quilt.
The top is pieced but the borders are not attached yet. There will be several including a pieced border. This one scares me a little because I like it so much and my quilting skills are beginner at best. Gus helped me design this in terms of laying out the dragon colors.
Quilt number 2: Let's see what I can do with the Dr. Seuss Log Cabin. Originally intended as a gift for my youngest nephew as an infant, he is now 2...
I think this top is done. I tried out a few ideas for borders, but like it as it is. The backing is the black & white Dr. Seuss scatter. Not sure what I'll bind it in just yet. I auditioned a rainbow strip and did not like it. I'm not sure if I could find enough of the red dot, but that is the way I'm leaning as I look at this one again.
Quilt 3: Another that needs borders. French Rail Fence.
Quilt 4: My first top - Floral Wonderland. Therefore my oldest UFO.
Okay - I'm going to leave it at 4 for this quarter. And I'll be thrilled if I can get them all completed.
