Door Wreath


Wow, I just realized I went the whole month of February without posting. I worked a lot of hours that month and was just tired, both body and brain. I didn't do a whole lot of sewing, it seemed I had a short attention span. But this week I was off on Tuesday so I got to spend the day with my quilting buddies and that made me very happy. I carried the makings for this wreath for Michelle and put it together while visiting with the girls. It was very easy, I had strips of fabric cut 1" x 8" plus some rick rack and ribbon cut the same lenght. Then just tied them on a metal ring, added the metal K and ribbon loop for hanger. It felt good to finish something, maybe I should do more small projects, but probably not (I might loose my spot as UFO  queen).

 
I have also been working on this black and white disappearing nine patch. I am going to add to the right and bottom to make it more symmetrical then add a white border with applique flowers in black and white. This applique idea will keep this an ongoing project for a while.


I have also been working on these blocks (Bonnie Hunter pattern) with the intention of putting them together for a baby boy quilt.

 
Before I started the b/w disappearing nine patch I was working on this. It is a pattern called Ginger Belle by Miss Rosie.  I also started started another top by a pattern in the Fons and Porter magazine.
 
No picture of this one yet but you can see what I mean about a short attention span. I have yet to work on the UFO challenge, At least I found a little time to post this  morning, just hope I haven't lost all my followers. I promise to do better in the future. Until the next time happy quilting or crafting.

  2. I see you suffer from butterfly brain syndrome, just like I do. Isn't it fun? LOL I always have a bunch of projects on the go but most of them do end up finished, eventually. Your wreath is fun.
