What’s on my Design Wall January 24, 2011

This weekend I was on call for work, so I spent some quality time with my sewing machine and completed the center of my 2008 Charm Challenge quilt which is UFO #6 for Judy’s UFO Challenge.  Now I’m working on the borders.

I had 13 1/2 inches of the green fabric and 7 inches of the peach.  Needless to say my options were limited.  I managed to mangle the math, but I think it’s going to be OK.  The inner peach border will finish at 1/2 inch, the middle green border 1 inch and the outer border 3″.  The finished size of the quilt will be about 54 x 76 — a smaller than the 60 x 85 I try to aim for.

Another evening or two, and I’ll have this quilt top finished and off my UFO list and on to my “to be quilted list”.  I do hope that whatever # Judy draws next month, it’s something I can finish without much thought.  #2 or #7 would be good numbers for February.

Check out what others are working on by following the links over at Patchwork Times.

I’m glad you found the matching fabric online. It finishes the quilt perfectly.

Ugh — I hate it when I have just drips and drabs of fabric left to do borders. I’ve got a ufo waiting because I just don’t want to figure out the math to make the amount of fabric I have fit the borders… Love the look of this quilt. So, keep working on it. How long will it sit in the waiting to be quilted pile?

Lovely quilt, and it will feel so good to get it done, won’t it.

It is beautiful. Congratulations on nearing the finish line on this one. I need to sandwich and quilt my #6, and I have never found the outhouse blocks yet!

There is such a great feeling to cross a UFO off your list. As for the math….makes me break out in hives so I stay away LOL
