2017 UFO Challenge

Each month is assigned a number.  This month is the number 6 which is the Irish Chain Lap Quilt.  I started this quilt March 2016.  I doubt I will finish this within the month, but at least I will make a dent.  UFO Challenge sheet and challenge details found here.  There is also a facebook page to join...lots of wonderful projects being completed!

Blocks Catch Up Day

I'm loving these challenges!  My goal this year is to play with color and practice my machine piecing skills.  Both of these challenges will end in a quilt...maybe.  I seem to be really drawn to little quilts right now and I can see these blocks, especially these 365 blocks, being the beginnings of little quilts.  I'm going to commit to waiting until all the blocks are done before I decide though.  I'm also thinking about joining a photography club in hopes of learning how to take better photos.  Because, really....I stink at it!!
