Well enough of that - Here is my next UFO to work on #8 On my list, #8 was TBA. I thought it would get picked later in the year and I could use it to finish up something that I wanted a little more time with. So now I need to pick something. Okay here we go..... Ruby Red Dot.
I am picking this one for three reasons.
1. I did not have it on my UFO list at all last year and since it is already on there for 2 months that gives me 3 months to get it done. (unless I change one of those to TBA) :)
2. It has a balance of piecing and hand work, means I could possible take it to the retreat and get sashings, corner stones and borders pieced.
3. Since I have 3 other goals this month that include mainly hand work (which I love) I needed something that was not only hand work.
Here is a picture of the quilt from the pattern book
Here is my Beginning Status: Blocks 1-10 done, and blocks 11 and 12 are prepped. (notice bottom right corner)
However do you notice an empty space - Hmm me too. I don't know what happened to that block. I remember doing it. Oh ya - and I actually see it in the picture below. (2nd down on left) - I need to find it.
So my goal is always to make progress. But in my effort to push myself a little more this year to get things done, I'm trying to be more specific with my goals. So here goes.....
Cut out all pieces for friendship stars and sew together 10 of the 20. (Excluding the red wool dot in center)
Cut red and green strips to make the sashing between stars.
Finish blocks 11 and 12.
UFO Bonus: Redo block 8 if I can't find it.
Sew red and green strips together and sub cut into the 12 1/2" pieces
Sew remaining 10 friendship stars together.
Wish me luck and have a Blessed Day!!
