Isn't the purpose to SUBTRACT from the UFO pile? I was on a roll and proud of the progress I had been making this year. Alas, I do believe that I have stalled out and I'm moving in the opposite direction.
I've started a new project..
It all started with this box overflowing with 1.5" strips leftover from my Granny Square project which, no, is not finished. :)
I wanted to empty that box and this project called for 1.5" strips.
It doesn't get much easier than that and I think this is going to make a great scrap quilt.
Then I saw that Bonnie Hunter posted a Split 9-Patch for her leader-ender project this year
and I was reminded that I had this box:
2.5" squares all ready and waiting to be stitched.
And my collection of 2.5" strips just happened to fit right in to that plan. :)
Our Fall just got really busy, really quickly, so with the exception of 2 baby quilts that MUST be made, I'm thinking that sewing will not be happening around here. I figure these little strips will be easy stitching when I can manage to find 2 minutes to sit behind the machine.
And did I stop there? Of course not. I saw this S'mores quilt and thought that would be the perfect way to trim my overflowing box of brown fabric. I just made this one block and it may very well be a very lonely block for a long time to come:
I'm thinking that I need to stop thinking.
