Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

April UFO commitment
This is a 2016 QAL by Lisa Bongean called "Christmas Magic"
25 six inch blocks - what was I thinking? They have so many tiny pieces.  This month I will conquer this UFO which has been haunting me since 2016!

Tulips
This was my March UFO and  I finished it! Yaay!
I rescued these tulips from a local thrift store.  They were very primitive and no two blocks were the same size or fabrics.  I really felt I needed to give them life.  It looks kinda retro with my scrap 2-1/2" squares.  I'm pretty happy with it and it is finished.

Baby quilt from leftover scraps.  Just needed quilting.

Back shows the quilting better

I had to stop and make about 40 masks for my healthcare worker family members

Projects list is moving along.  I think I am staying focused.

March OMG and PHD in 2020

March OMG and PHD in 2020
I am linking up with Patty at Elm street Quilts for the March OMG (One Monthly Goal)
and
Quilting Gail for the March PHD in 2020

I think I am doing pretty good. I almost have a few more ready to bind so starting the first week of March, not too bad.
I have plans for a couple more UFOs this month but I need to get some more done on the ones I have started first!

PHD in 2020 link up

I am linking up with Gail at https://quiltinggail.com/2020/02/29/phd-in-2020-march-1-progress-report/

Sunbonnet Sue was my February PHD in 2020
Success!!!

ABC Quilt
I have been trying to complete one additional UFO each month.  This was an ABC panel and I managed to get it made and pin basted but not quite to a finish.

Green Geometric Quilt
I used the pattern from Becky at Quilted Twins and the geometric fabric bundle from Quilted Twins.
I probably could have finished the ABC quilt if I hadn't made this one.

Showing the backing.

A La Mode pattern by Debby Brown Quilts
This was another quilt using the geometric bundle from Quilted Twins.  It is quilted. Just needs binding.

PHD in 2020
So far, I think I am on a roll.  I still plan to finish one UFO every month plus finish anything I start this year.

Stash Busting
Ok, I did acquire a little fabric in February, but I am busy trying to sew it up!
