#APQ Resolution – Rajah Quilt Revisited

This was supposed to be my finished quilt for March for the American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 UFO Challenge, but it needed to be completely quilted and bound so I’m happy to have it completed by June. This quilt was the 2016 Block of the Month from The Quilt Show, called “Rajah Quilt Revisited.”  It’s […]

Off to a Good Start

January is not even close to over yet and I already have my UFO completed for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge. #apqresolution I had one of these place mats made already so I only needed to finish three. And, it’s only January and I already have an item ready for my guild’s show […]

Design Wall Tuesday – #BirdZeed and #APQResolution

I’m killing two birds (so to speak) with one stone this week.  A friend of mine has recently started a new creative community called BirdZeed. Each month, she posts a word to spur our creative juices and we share what we create.  July’s word is “Circle.” When she posted the word, this UFO was hanging […]

#APQSResolution – June

I know, it’s July.  But, I just put the finishing touches on my UFO for June for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge.  This piece was a machine quilting sample from years ago that just needed a binding.  It got one and now I can donate it to my guild for its mini-quilt raffle […]

2016 Projects – #APQResolution – May

I finished another UFO for the American Patchwork and Quilting 2016 UFO Challenge.  It really surprises me what projects I have in my drawer.  Most of them are not quilts to finish. Those I seem to get done. This month’s project was to dye a white tee shirt that had gotten stained. (I think from […]

2016 Projects – #APQResolution – April

It’s an embarrassment to me just how many things in my UFO drawer only require 5 – 10 minutes worth of work to finish them.  This month’s UFO needed a hanging sleeve and then needed to be hung. The quilt itself has been finished since 2008? 2009?  And now, it is finally hanging!  Of course, […]

2016 Projects – #APQResolution February

I have a flurry of new projects this year, including American Patchwork & Quilting’s UFO Challenge. March’s project is already done, but I am stuck on February.  My UFO is a practice piece I did years ago to try corded white work. I was reading Kathryn Berenson’s book “Quilts of Provence” and wanted to try […]

New Projects – #APQResolution

I mentioned that I had started the American Patchwork & Quilting 2016 UFO Challenge. To do the challenge, you catalog your UFO projects, assign numbers 1 – 12 to each one, and when APQ draws the number each month, you complete the UFO.  I’m behind already on February’s project, but I did finish January’s in […]
