FALLing into UFOs

>> Friday, September 21, 2012

I've been quilting myself into a frenzy starting new projects that are long term projects. I find I always get the urge to start something new at around the same time I start the yearly debate as to whether or not I want to make Christmas presents this year!

I have been working at cutting material for my Hallowe'en 1904 by Blackbird Designs. I LOVE this quilt and have taken way too long to get at it. It won't be ready this fall either. BUT no more excuses! 

 I knew I wanted to quilt the 20 inch blocks as panels and then put the quilt top together {like I did for my last 2 big quilts, Liberated Churn Dash and Lady of the Lake}. After pondering this for about a week, I remembered that I had a Blindman's Fancy pattern picked out for my Bucket List{I'll check which magazine and update later}. I checked it out and the blocks are the same size! {or close to it. I think I need to add the sashing as I go to make them the same size} I made my first Blindman's Fancy block and I love it. I'm using the fat quarter bundle of Abigail by Kathy Brown, The Teacher's Pet/Red Rooster Fabrics that I won at my Local Quilt Shop, Cindy Bee's.

I've also been doing some blog housekeeping getting ready for my day on the Glorious Autumn Block Party. It's this coming Tuesday! I even took my Lady of the Lake quilt outside for it's official photograph for my designer spiel at Michele's site.

I even had my daughter help out and take some new headshots of me.  Silly, but fun!
I also clicked over to the Quilting Gallery to see what blocks I missed this week. Yay! Two more pieced blocks. Something to work on today while I take care of my sick son {instead of supply teaching today!} Make the best of every situation, right:)

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
