At the Guild: Until… when?

At the P’s & Q’s Guild, there were the beginnings of an underground movement, muttered words included ‘finish, UFO, never done Show & Tell before’, which became a common theme.

Here’s me thinking I had a corner of the ‘this year I’m going to …’, instead I’m becoming a groupie!

My ‘no matter how small or large, old or new’ improving my UFO finish rate and not starting anything new (unless something was already in my stash- that’s the quilter’s out clause!), was quickly old hat – at least until my resolve was challenged by a “I’ll give you until June!”

Yay! Another UFO done, but DH sprukes ‘When it’s finished, find somewhere else for it – not here.

This UFO was an ‘ugly’ piece of fabric where I experimented with fussy ‘kaleidoscope’ piecing, whilst at an early step along the patchwork path. The fabric background had a checkerboard pattern – that does not line up when rejoined, so a bit of appliqué helped cover some of it over. All that needed doing was the binding. So another ‘sunscreen’ quilt for the car!

And I’m still working on that UFO … ‘Affairs of the Heart’, adding the embroidery while at Guild meetings – and no, it will not get finished this year!

But that’s another story.

Happy stitching …
