Design Wall Monday

Judy L. at Patchwork Times hosts Design Wall Monday, a UFO Challenge for 2011, and a monthly Monochromatic Project. I have signed up for the UFO challenge, and I have decided to make 6" blocks in the color of the month in the monochromatic project. These blocks will be made from my scraps, in what ever configuration I can make them in. Each month I am going to try to make at least 6 blocks in the chosen color. My tentative plan is to set them in rows by color with white sashings in between each block and each row. We will see how this turns out...

Edited to add: My children are off playing in the snow. When you live in the South, you have to enjoy the snow on those rare occassions you actually get enough to play in. It is supposed to be icy tonight, so they will probably be home from school tomorrow too.

#6 on the UFO list

Judy picked number 6 for the January UFO. I groaned. I haven't been inspired by this project for a while, hence its UFO status. I checked my UFO master list and I am pretty sure that I started this in 2007. This morning, I pulled it out to assess the situation. The colors in this quilt will go so nicely now with my couch, which is new since then! I made a list of what needs to be done, and figured out a plan for the border. Now to clear off my sewing area and put my plans into action!
