I made it! I finished a UFO before January rolled into February! My UFO challenge is off to a great start. Lots of you know this pattern as Slideshow. I bought the Japanese panel at the Pacific International Quilt show in Seattle...the year was sometime in the early 2000's. Some of the Fabric Stalkers made a girls weekend and we hit the vendor mall!!! I finally put this wall hanging together in 2010!!! and now it is complete...my first competed UFO 2012!
Check this out! Mary aka Cornwoman finished her January UFO Challenge...and I love it...in fact I want to make this one! Great framed or as a pillow! You rock Corney!
...And just so you don't think Corney is drowning in UFO's she actually is very productive, organized and been on a fabric diet for 4 years!!! She made this adorable duffle bag for her granddaughter's birthday in June (already done!) filled with fun hair things! What a great idea!
I stopped at Fabric Depot on the way home from Portland. Even though I was sad to leave the Portland Bates Family...and baby Wyatt I stuck to my fabric diet. If you remember the diet allows for the purchase of batting, backing and notions...and that is all I bought. 3 battings, the backing for one quilt and a wooden hoop. In and Out...in the shortest amount of time I have ever spent there. I didn't want to spend a lot of time there because the temptation was incredible...but, I did take a photo of these wall hangings because I liked them.
Heading back over the mountain...and it was beautiful!
There will be lots of Quilt Bloggin' this month as I will be busy sewing so I won't think about missing Wyatt and will have lots to share. The Fabric Stalkers have their Quiet River Retreat in less than 2 weeks!!!
