I have this one done now. Jovial is a free pattern by Moda. It has 3-Dimensional trees and pinwheels. Mine was made smaller to accommodate for the lack of more background fabric. This size is perfect for me since it gives me the opportunity to practice the 3-Dimensional technique and create a new project. I've yet to figure out a name for this 2021 UFO Finished project.
Next on my UFO list to do will be Kofi. I have much of the fabrics set aside, but only one unit less the center circle done, but I'm told it can be tricky by Kerry. Kerry took the workshop with me at Road to California. We were learning a new technique with this one too. I plan to set mine a bit differently than Kerry did. The options are endless on how one can set their units. Kerry's project is HERE.
During the week my Liberty Box arrived from Fat Quarter Shop. I'm happy with everything that came in the box...especially the Aurifil threads. Stars & Stripes quilt pattern are what the fabrics are intended to make that came in the mystery box.
Most of my time has been spent on Mistletoe applique so make sure you tune in on Monday so you can see where I'm at on it.
So there are some used and some adds for this week.
I still need a "K" name for this project...any suggestions?
I have the July UFO to get started to keep on track. Maybe I will get Jovial started. Mom has sent me a bunch of neutrals that I can select from. Scraps for the trees and pinwheels shouldn't be a problem. Only problem I can see looming is the right border to mix with all the scrappy trees and pinwheels. I already have a back. Maybe I'll start with finding a border fabric and work into the trees and pinwheels =^.^=
Enjoy your week!
My much waited for threads arrived from Laundry Basket Quilts. I Christmas Collection as you can see from the cover is the project Mistletoe that I have been working on. I needed the reds for the red berries as my red threads were not the right shades. For those of you who don't already know the blue threads will be for Michigan when the time comes.
Here are the fabrics that arrived this week from Stitchin' Heaven. The blue will be used for the vines of Michigan that I spoke about earlier. The next two are the backs for Mistletoe and Michigan. Stitchin' Heaven had a very nice sale on Laundry Basket Quilt fabrics early in the week and I needed the backs eventually =^.^=
If you have any ideas on naming either of these two projects, I am all ears!
Starting the second half of 2021 here are my stash stats.
