Mai UFO focus

At the Tour the Fibre facebook group I have joined the challenge to have focus on projects.  To set goal for ourselves. Each month i will try have focus on one (or more) projects to get it finished.

This weekend I started to organize two cupboards in my sewingroom.  All saturday went working on that. An the bottom of  one shelf I found a paper bag with these brown and blue block.  You can't see the blue blocks here, but they are in the pile.  Found a paper in between that had the invitation to this class in 2009.  So it is an old ufo.

So what to do???  I arranged them in different ways, and ended up only using my blue blocks.  The brown and pink blocks went into the bag again.  Maybe I will do something with the brown blocks. Did not like this kind of pink together with it so that has to go.....if I do something with the brown blocks.

I even put together scraps of batting.  So easy when using the Heat Press Batting Together.

Did not have enough of the fabrics in the blocks to make a binding.  But luckily I found a perfect match for a binding in my stash.  

Binding on and I am sewing it down while watching a movie on TV.

So this evening or tomorrow I will have a finish.  Feels so good.
And then I will pick my next focus project.

Saying for today:

Happiness is family, friends, a BIG pile of fresh fabric and lot of inspiration.  I have been so lucky to have family that looked after Rusken while Hanne and I was on a 3 weeks quilt trip in USA. For you who follows me on instagram and facebook, you have been able to follow us visiting quiltshops, the zoo, spending time with friends and family, attending to a quilt retreat and a wonderful show and tell (thanks to Rosemary for making this smilebox),

My suitcase with all the new fabrics went missing at the airport, but arrived a couple of days later. And it was so fun unpack all the fabric, just like going shopping again.  I have a plan with a lot of the fabrics.

Like the background I bought for this quilt + that I am using a lot of the new fabrics for the blocks.  It is so addictive to make these blocks.  Just like candy, just one more ....and one more ....and .......

So far I have made 22 blocks.  160 to go.

While visiting the quilt retreat in Shipshewana I promised Hanne, Rosemary and Deb that I will make at least one blogpost each month. 

Hanne posted a Quilter's code today.  I found another one that have a few other abbreviations.
