More UFOs

I’ve been doing a bit of organizing in the sewing room and found a few more UFOs. You’ve seen this first one. I started working on it when I was in Arizona. I’d like to get back to this soon, if my hand will let me.

This next one is a few decades old! I think I intended to make a strippie quilt. Each panel is about 14 inches wide and 70 inches long. It is all machine top stitched.

This one is even older. I believe this is where I gave up on curved piecing. Lol! I’ve never had the heart to throw it out. It might be fun to use for some machine quilting practice.

It is only about 30 by 30. I don’t really see myself adding a curved binding. Maybe I should straighten the edges and add a border. I’m not sure anyone would appreciate these colors in a baby quilt. I wonder if I’ll find anymore UFOs.

Have a great day!

  1. Oh, my Katy…you have been busy. I have been busy too…avoiding all my UFOs and WIPs and hiding from my 2012 London quilt Bravo to you

    I remember the vine pattern, because I always thought I’d make it! I didn’t. =)

    How about making a table topper? Curved binding is not so hard. Cut fabric strips on the bias. When applying to the quilt top, simply pivot at the inside “corners.” Don’t add extra binding fabric like you do when mitering outside corners.

    Those curved pieces are calling for some appliqué. And you could pillowcase the backing. Those vines are beautiful. Could you use as a border? That will make a lovely quilt. Good for you for attacking UNOs. I am cleaning out the sewing room and sorting fabric into piles for projects, donation to guild, donation to historical society and some of the really old, dust cloths. I am determined to rid myself of clutter.

    I would try to machine applique the curved edges of the last quilt top down to a border…that way you get the best of both worlds.

    Rather than straighten the edges on that quilt, why not consider turning the edges and appliqueing them to a strip like muslin, then adding a border. It would add a little to the size, making it perfect for a lap or wheelchair charity quilt. You could even use it for the back of another quilt you like better. Love those scrappy vines. A pretty floral fabric strip in between might be lovely. It will be fun to find out how you decide to finish these.

  7. Those are all great! Hope your hand heals quick so you can get to finishing them!

    Love your handpieced “coffins”! I was looking at a similar project with elongated hexies and thinking about adding it to the “To DO” list. Is that second one Piece ‘O Cake’s “Gathering Leaves” that was in APQ? You’re lucky, yours got as far as a UFO — mine is still in the PIGS category (Projects In Grocery Sacks). Need to get to that one day….

  9. Boy, if that’s all the UFOs you have, I could send you a few of mine! Haha!
