    APQ UFO Challenge

    So I was scrolling on facebook and came across this UFO challenge. I thought it would be good motivation for me to join. Especially since I had already decided to work on my UFOs this year. This will just give me more accountability. I decided to have two lists; one for WIPs in various stages, and one for WNS (works not started). WNS for me is the fabric and pattern have been chosen, but they have not been started. At last count, I probably have about 75 of these. I know. I have a serious buying problem. So without further ado, here are my two lists for 2022: WIP UFO List If I can get the ones that are tops only quilted and bound and the ones that are blocks to the top stage, I will be happy! # Project Month Status Before Status After 1 Barn Blocks Quilt Some Blocks 2 Love Note Some Blocks 3 Merry Go Round Top Only; not sure about backing or binding 4 Neptune Top Only, some backing 5…

    Designer Mystery – Block 6

    So one of my goals this month was to complete the Block 6 of the designer mystery for 2021. This was a very easy block, even though there were a lot of pieces. This block of the month is turning out to be beautiful. I love Fig Tree fabrics and this line, Strawberries and Rhubarb is absolutely beautiful. I especially like the subtle white on white background.
