It's the first of the month, and time for a new quilt for the UFO Challenge. As I was completing my June project, I was thinking about which UFO might be next. I dearly hoped that Judy would not pick my stained glass quilt. This project is a true UFO for me - it's been in progress for over 4 years. Or, that's how long I've owned it, anyway. I think I bought the pattern, and it sat for a year before I opened it. When I did start the project, I made some decent progress for a while, but it's been hiding in the closet for at least 2 years now.
So today Judy drew the number for July. #2. Guess what quilt is #2 on my list? I guess it's time to pull out the dragon.
The template turned up easily enough, right behind the bucket on the shelf. Instructions - check. In a pile with another UFO. Picture -hmmm. That was more difficult, but it did eventually reveal itself, in a drawer of non-quilting items. I think this quilt really wanted to remain a UFO.
I don't think there is any way this quilt is getting completed this month - see how long it is? In fact, I reduced this pattern to 1/4 of its original size before I started. The pattern was for an 8 foot long wall hanging - which seemed a bit excessive to me. Anyway, I think the goal for this month is to find all the pieces. Oh, I guess I did that already :) OK, I will aim to make progress on this - perhaps get past the halfway mark before the end of the month. Maybe I should invest in some of that lapel stick that quilters keep raving about.
