8. Today: Take Small StepsScreen Shot 2020-04-15 at 2.14.38 AM

By taking small steps Every Day … it will eventually get done!  SEW … for the rest of April, pick one project that you want to complete and work on it a little each day!

I completed another UFO this week.  It just needed to be quilted and bound. This was from a French General Layer Cake.  The pattern is “Anita’s Arrowhead” by Anita Grossman Solomon.  It is available for free, but I don’t know for how long.  I altered the pattern a bit by adding sashing and cornerstones.


I quilted it with an all-over pattern, a 4, 5, or 6 petal flower, echoed and surrounded by swirls.

  2. Hi Gail! What a great finish and another UFO at that. I have to add that I just adore the change you made to the pattern. I think cornerstones and sashing add a lot to the design, especially with your fabric choices. I honestly cannot imagine it any other way! I am intrigued by your finish with the flowers in the center. I love how they are all kind of different but the theme of that one color (wine/burgundy/dark red?) really brings all the blocks together. You’ve had some great fun finishes so far this year. ~smile~ Roseanne
