UFO Progress August 1, 2012

Last month I was supposed to finish this Christmas Star and the Evergreen blocks for my Christmas BOM quilt.  Given that I just picked the fabrics out over the weekend. I’m surprised that I got this far.  I like how the fabric are playing together, but when I took a few seams out, I seem to have messed the size up.

My plan was to write this post even later this evening after finishing this block and the trees — ok, the trees would probably be pushing it.  But a friend asked me to repair a pair of pajama pants.  I wanted to use a narrow zig zag due to the fabric, but I couldn’t set my machine to that stitch 😦 .

It was right at 6 and the shop closed at 7, so I dropped everything and hauled the machine in.  Hopefully I’ll get it back before too long. While it’s there I’ve asked that it be cleaned.  I just looked at my notes and it’s been 16 months since it was last cleaned professionally.

So what’s up for this month?

Judy pulled # 7. For me that means the applique block Noah and the pieced block Memory.

I suppose I could pull my backup machine out, but there is plenty I can do without my machine.  For example:

  • prep the pieces for last month’s Evergreen block
  • prep the pieces for this month’s Noah block
  • hand quilt on the DWR
  • put the grommets in the quilted purse
  • prep the applique pieces for the Eeyore quilt
  • rip out the bad quilting on Diamond Links
  • trim and square up the KTQ 1600 quilt for binding
  • pre-cut pieces for either a few SBS blocks or the Just Takes Two blocks – I’m behind on both

I think I can keep busy without the machine.

Don’t forget to check out the links over at Patchwork Times to see how others are doing on their UFOs.

UH OH no fun to have to take your machine to the Dr. Hope you get it back soon. Good thing you have a spare. Looks like it is being used for a good cause though by your FB posting. I know what you mean about having plenty to do. I need to cut out more FW and SBS blocks if I have any hope to finish one or both of them this year.

That is quite a to-do list without a reliable machine 😦
