UFO Challenge Update

The bad news:  I am now 0 for 3 in terms of finishing UFOs.  The good news is that while nothing is finished everything moved up a notch this month:

January UFO (#5):

Of the two wall hangings that make up that UFO project, the Safari Stars, the one that was already a top did get basted.

February UFO (#1):

Once I realized the the DWR would take longer than expected, I've committed to weekly work on it.  So as of Friday I did get a third row of arcs done so now am here:

March UFO (# 8):
The Colorblocks quilt also got layered this month.

While I am a bit disappointed that I didn't get it quilted, there is more good news because the new UFO for April is #10 and that for me is:  Brrr! Park!

As you can see this one is already layered (and has been for three years) and now will need a good pressing before quilting!  For me, this means that April will be a very quilty month---all quilt stitching almost all the time.  I say almost because I will still be working on the DWR arcs and I have been working on my Heart & Home Wool BOM blocks for Sinta's BOM Rehab Challenge also on weekly (actually weekend) basis so stitching will take place for that as well (and I will post about that later today when the Linky is up).  Quilt stitching  is the one thing I need to gain more confidence in so it is good that this will be the focus this month.

Hope you got a lot done this month.  If not, let's watch our UFOs bloom into finished quilts this spring!
