First Friday of the Roaring 20’s

No finishes … yet ….  But, I’m off to a roaring start for this year!

I have been working on a couple of UFOs.

Ode to 30s



The picture on the right was the state it was in before Christmas … I made a few more blocks and added sashing and it is now sandwiched … the quilting can begin!  Oh … and I need to decide HOW to quilt it … it will definitely be a decision I’ll need to make with each block!IMG_5939.JPG

Summer Solstice

IMG_5864This picture, taken before Christmas, showed the only sewing I had done on this project.  One block …  However, all the pieces were cut and had been placed in numbered bags!  Whew … at least I didn’t have to figure out what fabric goes where.

To tackle this UFO, I decided I would work on it for ½ hour each day that I sat at the machine.  Well,  the first day, it took me about an hour to figure out what I was doing and got started.  Today, I have 8 blocks to the stage below.  IMG_5938.jpeg

Have you joined in the PHD in 2020?  There is still time!  You can go to THIS POST for details and to add your link … you have until Jan. 14 to join!

The first part in tackling your UFOs to acheive your PHD in 2020 is making your list.  Many of you have already done that!

The next step in tackling UFOs is to do an analysis of each project.  You can read about that HERE.

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

    • Thanks, Denise!!!
      The quilting is going to be pretty simple … there’s not a lot of negative space, so I want the quilt itself to shine!
      Thank you for hosting “Put your foot down!”
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail! I’m still chuckling over taking an hour to figure out what to do and to get started. Yeah – no kidding. Been there before. Yippee for getting seven more blocks ready to go! And as for quilting the Ode to 30s piece . . . what about an allover design? That’s what several people suggested to me for my recent sampler quilt top and I think I’m going with it. The sashing and cornerstones really look nice – they finish off the blocks so nicely, and those borders really compliment all the fabrics and pull them out from the blocks. ~smile~ Roseanne
