End of February Update

Well, I sure didn't get all my UFOs done this month - how about you?  I'm OK with February being a short month (a few days less of winter!), but it seemed to fly by.

I did finish one of my projects - this Girl Gang lap quilt started in 2002.  That's the only one of my UFOs that got done, though.

I got distracted by this other UFO:
I came across this in my sewing room and thought I'd better get it together before I lose all the parts and pieces.  I started this a couple winters ago, and the store where I got it has gone out of business, so I'm out of luck if I need more fabric for it.   It was already cut out and fused, so it just needs the stitching finished. (Oh, yeah, and sewn together, and quilted, and bound.)  It's going on the March UFO list!  I've made good progress on it already.

And I've been seeing all those cute row quilts from Bee In My Bonnet on everyone's blogs, so I just had to start that last week.  I'm months behind, but should be able to catch up.  Here's the progress so far:
This is in bright, happy fabrics so it's fun to work on in between my others.  I'm enjoying sewing this one.

So, here's the UFO list to work on for March (looks a lot like the February list)

1.  Finish quilting and binding the Times Three quilt.  The quilting is done, and the binding is made, so a couple hours ought to finish this one.

2.  Finish the applique on my Favorite Things wall hanging (also from last month).  I  did add a couple more things this month, but don't have a new picture of it.

3.  Hand quilt the wall hanging started on the cruise - no progress on this in February.

4.  Finish the Warm Winter Wishes Block a Month shown above.

Also, keep working on the Row Quilt, but that's a new project, not a UFO.

So that's my plan for March!  We have a guild sewing day on Saturday, so I'll no doubt have to start something new for that.  At least I'll never run out of UFOs!


  1. I am so impressed with what you got done! I really love all your projects, especially the new row quilt...I have been tempted to start this one as well. Good for you!

  2. I'm happy for you that you got one of your UFOs finished. I absolutely love that red quilt! My favorite color!

  3. Well done Kathy on finishing your quilt. Love it and I love the one that was "distracting" you too. Great projects to work on for March. I have the link tool up on my blog post today so you can link up by March 4th. Sorry you didn't win the giveaway but you have a chance in March now.

  4. Warm Winter Wishes would distract me, too. So nice! Kudos on the 2002 finish. :D

  5. You've made some great progress on your UFO's. The new project is cheery and you've gotten a good start.
