New Project

I know, how can I start a new project with all these UFOs I have?  It was easy when Jean came up with this new design called Miss Tess.  Jean does have this pattern for sale on Craftsy here.  What a fun class!

This class did make me think about how long is really takes to make a quilt.  I am doing this quilt in a twin bed size and I spent my four hours at class cutting out this quilt.  I got all 45 blocks cut but I still had half blocks and the centers to cut, which I finished on the following day.  And I don't feel the pattern is hard to cut or to sew.  I do need a design wall, so will be using my guest bedroom floor for that.  I'm hoping that this summer I can make a few changes to my quilt room so I can get a design wall added.  But no more work has been done on this quilt since then.

I went back to a UFO, Everything But The Kitchen Sink.  The pattern is a free pattern offered by RJR Fabrics and it's located here.  I removed the solid black border I had added and used this fabric instead.

A fun little poison green floral.

This seems like it would fit better with the 30s fabrics than black. Can't wait to see it finished!

I think one of the reasons we quilters/sewists continue to "start"new projects is because it is always exciting to begin new projects.

Looking forward to seeing both of your quilts in progress!
