a little progress !


at the beginning of January I posted about my UFO/WISP plans for 2017.  I’m concentrating on a handful of projects at a time to try and get some finished.

I was thinking a quarterly update would be fine but then I thought that I should do an update each month to keep these projects uppermost in my thoughts as I've discovered I'm very much an "out of sight out of mind" kind of girl !

I'm happy to say I've actually made some progress on most of the UFOs on my current list !

1. Bubbles Bee blocks

I’ve made another block and have three more to do - my deadline for these is March !

100 day challenge check-in

its time for a 30 day update in the 100 day challenge being organised by Jen over at Quilter in the Closet and I'm excited to show some progress !!

My projects for this challenge were:

sew the Aurifil 2014 BOM blocks and finish the quilt top
sew the Foxley Village 2016 BOM blocks and finish the quilt top
FMQ and complete my cousin Susan's quilt (top done in 2011)
and make a Plus quilt from start to finish (new project but being planned for a while !)

I've actually finished the blocks for my Aurifil 2014 BOM and now I need to sew the sashing and finish the quilt top.


There's also been a teeny bit of progress on my Foxley Village BOM - I've got the fabrics sorted for the houses block and the Tea Shoppe block is almost ready to be appliqued - this block was ready to sew a while ago but I decided the fabric I chose for the front of the shop was way too busy so I've replaced it !

I haven't made any progress on the actual quilting of my cousin's quilt or the St Kilda quilt but I hope to work on both of them this month !


Hopefully I'll have some more progress to show in another 30 days :)
